Another Friday, another day to somehow misconstrue the Religion of PeaceTM, Tolerance and
Moderation also known as Islam. This time, Malaysian jihadists and their supporters marched to the US Embassy to protest the existence of Israel and its recent self-defense measures against Hamas and Palestinian aggression. From “Group protests against Israeli raids on Gaza at US Embassy”, The Star, 17 November 2012:
KUALA LUMPUR: A group of people staged a peaceful demonstration in
front of the United States’ embassy to protest Israel’s recent military
attacks against civilians in Gaza.
The group included members from the Pertubuhan Ikram Malaysia (Ikram) [Islamic Union], Pertubuhan Himpunan Lepasan Institusi Pendidikan [Union of Postgraduates of the Institute of Education] Malaysia and Aqsa Syarif and the public.
Marching from the Tabung Haji building to the embassy, they assembled at 1.50pm
for about 40 minutes outside the embassy, carrying banners and posters
declaring “End Gaza Killing”, “Boycott Goods of Israel and Allies” and
“Crush Israel.” Feel the Islamic warmth, love, moderation and peace!
Ikram deputy president Dr Mohamed Hatta Shaharom said the gathering was to protest against the recent Israeli military raids on Gaza.
Israeli air raids in Gaza over the past two days had taken the lives of
21 Palestinians, including six children and a pregnant woman.
in Bangi, Islamic Relief Malaysia urged Malaysians to support the Gaza
Emergency Medical Aid Fund set up to channel medical assistance directly
to the victims of the Israeli military raids.
director Zairulshahfuddin Zainal Abidin said the Islamic Relief network
aimed to collect some US$1mil (about RM3.07mil) worldwide to provide
medical and other supplies for hospitals in Gaza.
In a related development, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Raza has received a telephone call from Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi to discuss the latest Israeli military assaults and air strikes in Gaza.
In the 15-minute conversation yesterday, both of them expressed their desire to work closely to end the current violence in Gaza, said a
statement from the Prime Minister’s Office.
Both countries also agreed to get international power brokers to influence Israel to stop its military aggression, it said.
You mean all 56 Muslim countries and all 1.5 billion Muslims are themselves too powerless–at least for now–to stop a small country of a few million recalcitrant Jews?
