From Islamic Republic News Agency: “Muslim scholars call for support to Lebanese and Palestinian resistance”
The International Muslim Scholars’ League has accused the European and US governments of a biased policy concerning Palestine and Lebanon and urged the Muslim Ummah to help the suffering people of the two Arab nations.
“The tyrannical Israeli aggression against our people and brothers in Lebanon and Palestine has reached unprecedented levels of brutality.
“It is our duty as Muslims to stand by the steadfast peoples of Lebanon and Palestine, to support their resistance and salute the solidarity between their Muslims and Christians, for the truth is that the Zionist aggression makes no distinction between Muslim or Christian, fighter or civilian,” said the League in a statement received by IRNA in Brussels Wednesday.
In other words, the dhimmis are behaving — like Lebanese President Emile Lahoud, who claimed that Hizballah freed his country.
“We must denounce the national and international forces that back this aggression financially and psychologically and provide it with cover, trampling on the principles of justice, equality and nations’ legitimate rights.”
“It is the religious duty of every Muslim man and woman to condemn these crimes. If it were not for the European and US governments’ positions biased towards the Zionist aggressor, the latter would never have been able to perpetrate its atrocities safe in the knowledge that it will neither be reprimanded nor prosecuted.”
The League appealed to Muslims in Europe and the United States to rally on Saturday August 5 in denunciation of Zionist aggression, and condemnation of the support it continues to receive from European and the US governments.
It called upon the Muslim communities and all those of conscience to unite in peaceful organized protest, and express their solidarity with the people of Lebanon and Palestine in their legitimate resistance to Zionist aggression and
The statement was issued among others by the famous Egyptian scholar Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, President of the League.
