Salamo alikom wa rahamtullah

Please join us Friday July 28th in a massive gathering for Alaqsa in Downtown Vancouver at Vancouver Art Gallery 7:00 PM

The seizing of al Masjid Alaqsa is painful for every Muslim family and for their friends in the communtiy of humanity in every country in the world. Israeli forces have installed metal detectors, made entrance difficult and then temorarily closed Alaqsa Mosque, preventing Muslims from entering or praying there.  Israeli attacks on worshippers have also shed blood in the courtyard of the holy site.

The West Bank is occupied, Gaza is blockaded and becoming unlivable. Now, in the midst of these attacks on the Muslim Holy Site the UN and the International Community are mute. Most media have little to say of this latest atrocity.Who will stand for human rights? And when?

It is our duty now to stand strong and to condemn aggressive violation of human rights by  the Israeli Government.  We demand the complete restoration of Muslim authority to the holy site and the immediate withdrawal  of Israeli forces from the eastern side of Holy city of Jerusalem.

Please share and invite all your contacts

Thank you
Tarek Ramadan

She is a playwright, a policy advisor to AlShabaka and is former public advocate for Australians for Palestine. She was for many years a media spokesperson for National Council for Canada Arab Relations (NCCAR) and moved in 2009 to Australia where her parents and many other members of her Palestinian family have found refuge.
