Qazi: Zionist invasion on Gaza a slap on Ummah
LAHORE (PAKISTAN), (PIC)-- Jamaat-e-Islami
Pakistan ameer Qazi Hussain Ahmad has said that Israeli bombing on Gaza and
massacre of Palestinians is shaking Ummah's conscience but the delay in calling
meetings of OIC and Arab League is the worst betrayal with the innocent blood of
Palestinian nation led by Islamic Resistance
Movement (Hamas) is fighting the war for liberating Muslims' Qibla-e-Awwal from
the Zionist occupation and history will never forgive those sacrificing the
Palestinian cause for personal interests and regional politics, he said in a
statement on Monday issued by JI Media Cell.
Qazi demanded that border crossing of Rafah,
between Gaza and Egypt, should be opened permanently. Qazi said Israeli
objectives behind using entire air force and war machinery to destroy a small
town of 144 km area is not to protect the handful of Jewish settlers near Gaza
border, but the actual aim of the open war against unarmed Palestinians is the
preparations of new elections in Zionist state.
He said Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak
approved Gaza invasion last month but its announcement was made by Foreign
minister Tzippi Livni in Cairo in the presence of Egyptian president.
Qazi said former army chief Ehud Barack is
out to achieve political aims from this war and labor party is spilling
Palestinian blood for the sake elections. Qazi expressed sorrow that Zionists
even violated Jewish religious injunction banning bloodletting on Saturday as
big sin, adding that Israeli government has forsaken their religion in their mad
pursuit of military might.
Condemning the Israeli air strikes on hospitals, educational institutions,
mosques and roads, Qazi said Zionists want to destroy the infrastructure of Gaza
to cripple the Palestinians and forcing them to vacate the area. He paid glowing
tributes to the courage and determination of Gaza citizens despite the cold
shoulder given to them by Muslim rulers, and said the large scale demonstrations
in the Muslim world are a proof that entire Muslim populations are standing
behind them at this hour of trial.
Qazi said the closure of Rafah by Egyptian
government following the Israeli attacks has aggravated the situation inside
Gaza by creating acute shortage of life saving drugs, food, milk and other
essential supplies, whereas the seriously wounded could not be taken for
treatment and surgeries. He said US and Israel has always considered Hamas as
the biggest obstacle in their agenda for the region and it is why they did not
respect the democratic mandate to Hamas by Palestinian people in last elections.
Qazi said Israel has kept arrested assembly speaker and other elected
representatives of Hamas for the last two years.
Qazi said anti-Muslim and extremist attitude
of US and western countries have endangered the world peace for the last six
decades, but Muslim rulers are equally responsible for that because of their
sheer apathy and US slavery.
Qazi said it is the responsibility of entire
Muslim ummah to help Palestinians who have been fighting alone the war of
liberating the Qibla-e-Awwal from Israeli occupation besides the battle for
defending the Arabs.
Qazi appealed to the whole Muslim world
specially the Islamic movements to observe Friday (Jan. 2) as peaceful protest
day against the naked Israeli aggression against unarmed Palestinians and press
Muslim rulers to come up with total support to the Palestinians against Israel.
