On a frozen Sunday morning
in London, Thousands rally for Quds Day
London 9th December
Quds Day is a day Muslims from all around
the world show their support for the oppressed Muslims of
the world and in particular Palestine. Rallies are held
in every capital of the world.
"I invite Muslims
over the globe to
the last Friday of the holy
month of Ramadhan as
to proclaim the international solidarity of Muslims in support
of the legitimate rights of the Muslim people of Palestine."
Ramadhan 1399AH (August 1979)
Congregational Prayers at Hyde Park,
before the march
The march commences from Marble
Arch towards Whitehall
- the seat of the British Government
"We are here to
say No to israeli terrorism,
are here to say no to injustice
which has taken place the last 50 years.
We are here to say that we don't want
any more apartheid state in the world,
the last apartheid state, israel is to be dismantled
like the one in South Africa
then we can all build shoulder to shoulder
and begin to put our lives together.
And there is no point in talking about
a two state system because what's the point
if they implement the same thing in South Africa,
if they still have an apartheid state
in half of South Africa,
that would have still been a continuation
of conflict between the two states.
What we need is to remove this ideology
of zionism because unless we do that,
that that will create conflict continuously
as it has for the last 50 years"
Chairman of Islamic Human Rights Commission
Something the West's foreign policy refuses to register:
"True peace is not merely the
absence of tension,
It is the presence of Justice"
Simple message even a child can understand,
but not Bush or Sharon:
"STOP killing Muslims"
A Rabbi from the Anti-Zionist Jewish group Neturei Karta
shatters the myth that Zionism has anything to do with Judaism:
"Jews have fought Zionism since
stands completely opposed to Zionism
Zionism although founded by people of Jewish birth
does not make it a Jewish conception,
communism was also founded by people of Jewish birth
but it is not a Jewish conception,
and Zionism is no more Jewish than communism...
We pray daily for the dismantlement of the zionist state

A two year old Muslimah shows her solidarity
with the children of Palestine, so brutally slaughtered by Israel,
"Baby Killers - Israeli Terrorism"
from the 'red-white blue' Zionist serpent.
".. while the
attention of the world
has been fixed upon Afghanistan,
the government of Israel led by a war criminal
who is now fighting to avoid trial in Belgium
has seized the opportunity to intensify
his repression of the Palestinian people...
fact this word settlements is a deception,
its a misnomer, these habitations are nothing
more than colonial outposts
- they serve the function of expanding and
consolidating Zionism and the Zionist state.
It's a matter of public record that since Oslo in 1993
while the Israeli government is talking peace,
all the while its prime ministers, each one of them,
has been expanding and building new settlements
on the occupied territories"

Non-Muslims join the rally,
they are disgusted at their governments blind support for Israel
"Fight Labour Imperialism
Victory to the Palestinians

The demonstration of
today is a kind of symbol
to express the real connection between the
Ibrahimi faiths - Judaism, Christianity & Islam.
There is no conflict,
this is the promise of Allah Subhana Tala
that the world could come under one
global divine state
as all prophets during history
did not have any kind of conflict
- if you set up a divine state run by the prophets
is there any conflict between prophets
Muhammad, Moses and Jesus ? No.
So the followers are going the same way
- here today we [Muslims, Christians & Jews]
demonstrate our opposition to Zionism
