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

Solidarity groups denounce Dershowitz appearance in Vancouver

September 15, 2010

“We find it appalling that the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver is sponsoring an appearance by Alan Dershowitz, who is an outright apologist for anything and everything that the State of Israel does, to open its annual fund-raising campaign,” says Bob Rosen, spokesperson for the Vancouver chapter of CanPalNet, a Palestinian solidarity organization.

“Dershowitz played a central role in the campaign to get Norman Finkelstein dismissed from the faculty of DePaul University because Finkelstein criticized Israeli behaviour and their treatment of Palestinians,” explained Stephen Aberle, a spokesperson for Jews for a Just Peace.

“We would like to ask those who are supporting Mr. Dershowitz by attending his appearance in Vancouver whether they support his efforts to muzzle academic criticism of Israeli policies, and if so, why?” continued Carl Rosenberg, spokesperson for Independent Jewish Voices. “We think that it sets a dangerous precedent when academics are dismissed because of their political positions.”
