Jordanians, Egyptians rally in support of Jerusalem

Palestine Information Center – 26/11/2011

AMMAN — Tens of thousands of Jordanian citizens rallied on Friday in Suweima village in the Jordanian Valley, only 25 kilometers away from occupied Jerusalem, in support of the holy city.

Ibrahim Al-Keylani, delivering the Friday sermon at the village, said that the Jordanians were displaying solidarity with their Palestinian brothers.

He championed resistance as the only hope for the liberation of the holy Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem, warning that the holy city was the target of a systematic Judaization campaign at the hands of the Israeli occupiers.

Participants torched Israeli flags and replicas of the alleged Jewish temple, which the Jews were seeking to build in place of the Aqsa mosque.

In Cairo, around 5000 Egyptians held a similar rally at the Azhar mosque to declare solidarity with Jerusalem and the Aqsa mosque on the international day for solidarity with occupied Jerusalem.

A statement delivered on behalf of the Sheikh of Al-Azhar, Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayyeb, said that Jerusalem was a red line and that Muslims would never allow anyone to harm it.

Tayyeb asked Muslims worldwide to mobilize efforts and to confront the Israeli Judaization of Jerusalem.

Khalil Al-Hayya, a political bureau member of Hamas, told the rally that Arabs and Muslims should stand united to liberate Jerusalem, adding that the Israelis were planning to destroy the Aqsa mosque.

  1. Israel would only do that as a provocation. I am certain that the Zionist are as atheistic they possibly could be, or how in hell could they be the so heartlessly wicked, cruel, brutal, and completely dishonest?

    This is not about religion, it is about Zionist imperialism has no moral qualms about committing genocide and all pretense of religious trappings is just another cynical design to exploit the gullible and deluded “believers” in a common cause to bring on biblical bullshit about the ‘second coming’ a preposterous claim made all the more asinine if we count Christmas as the 1st coming, the alleged ‘resurrection’ the 2nd, and therefore… any ‘”return'” would have to be a 3rd coming.

    “It was the experience of mystery — even if mixed with fear — that engendered religion.”
    – Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

    • Bill,

      You may want to keep an open mind on that question.

      While it may be that many do feign religious motives and personally gain from playing their role in the crimes of Zionist aggression, many also seem to have true blind faith just as many conquistadors must have as well.

      In any event, the religious doctrine does contain all of the cruel, brutal, wicked and dishonest aspects of Zionism so differentiating the two may be a mistaken exercise in futility.

  2. Church/temple and state is an incestuous infection from which only reason and honesty affords protection. I did not mean to differentiate between the rabidness of the Israeli rabbinate and the psychopathic political parasites in Tel Aviv, or its grotesquely misguided malicious military.

    Piety is propaganda, the proof of the failure of religion is history itself; past and present. The world would have been a much better place had the bible never existed. And that is not my mere opinion, it has overwhelming concurrence with those I have discussed that hypothetical “best case scenario” and it is time to disabuse ourselves as a people of that poisonous mythology.

    My favorite quip on the subject is; “If you believe in God, you are going to hell.” Are we not facing facts about now bogus ‘Thanksgiving’ is, and do likewise on what we know about the pack of contradictions that constitute our demented damaging dogma of the unholy Bible.
