Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood Calls for Stopping Israeli Holocaust in Gaza
The Muslim Brotherhood in Syria called for stopping the massacres committed by Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) in Gaza describing the aggression against Palestinian civilians as a ’holocaust’.
The group said in a statement, a copy of which was obtained by Ikhwanweb, that what has been practiced on Palestinian territories since the Balfour Declaration, is a remake of the Nazi holocaust. While the first holocaust was committed by the Nazis, the current holocaust in Palestine is committed by those claiming to be advocates of freedom and democracy under international legitimacy.
The Syrian group called on Arab and Muslim peoples to move, stop their silence, and send their message to rulers and ruled all over the world: that no stability can be attained on corpses of Palestinian children.
The following are extracts from the statement:
Our fellow citizens of the Arab and Muslim nations, freemen all over the world:
Israeli Deputy War Minister threatened unarmed Palestinian civilians before satellite TV channels that he will launch a real holocaust against them. The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) immediately brought this threat to the ground and implemented this holocaust through demolishing houses and killing children, women and elders.
What has been committed on Palestinian territories since the Balfour Declaration, is a remake of the Nazi holocaust. While the first holocaust was committed by the Nazis, the current holocaust in Palestine is committed by those claiming to be supporters of freedom and democracy and under international legitimacy.
Freemen all over the world…The brutality committed on Palestinian territories and the mass murder of innocent people reflect inherent hatred of life and mankind.
As no brutal force managed throughout history to counter peoples’ will, the Zionist force will never eliminate the will of the Palestinian people. The photos of the scattered remains of children and the bloodletting will be carved in the memory of this generation.
Arab and Muslim nations, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict has been and should remain the pivotal cause in the modern history of our world. We should never turn it into another chapter of internal clash between peoples and rulers of the Arab world. The current schism, hesitation and weakness in the Arab attitude towards resisting occupation add fuel to the ongoing holocaust against brothers in Palestine.
The Muslim Brotherhood in Syria declares its condemnation of the Israeli Occupation Forces’ massacre against the Palestinian people and declares its outright rejection to excuses with which Israel justifies its crimes. The group declares also its condemnation of international complicity which provides a cover to the IOF’s crimes and massacres. It rejects any Palestinian, Arab or Islamic schism concerning the Palestinian cause, which requires unity and advocacy for the Palestinian people’s right to resist occupation.
We call on Arab and Muslim leaders and peoples to back the Palestinian people in such critical stages of the Palestinian and Arab modern history..
Arab and Muslim peoples should move, stop their silence, and send their message to rulers and ruled all over the world: that no stability can be attained on the corpses of Palestinian children.
