Quds Day marks solidarity with Palestinian struggle

Quds Day is held annually on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan during which demonstrators call for the liberation of Palestine and an end to the Israeli occupation and apartheid. It was proclaimed in 1979 by the late Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic, as a religious duty for all Muslims to rally in solidarity against Israel and for the liberation of Al-Quds.

This year the protesters took to the streets to name and shame Israel and its cohorts; bring the world’s attention to the endless sufferings in occupied Palestine; reiterate Palestinians can and will liberate the Holy Land; and denounce politicians for not supporting the Palestinian cause.

By extension, this is not hatred propaganda at all. The worldwide rallies set on creating awareness about the fact that pro-Israel currents and lobbies in the West give a bad name to Islam, create a false image that Islam is a religion that provokes violence and hate against Jews, that the rallies are a clear exhibit of Antisemitism, and that Israel represents the Jewish community the world over.
