As the massacre in Gaza continues, with hundreds of Palestinians killed so far, the annual march for al-Quds has been held in London.
Al Quds day was established by the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini, who mandated it be held on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramdhan every year to ensure the cause of Palestine would never be forgotten or downplayed. 2667 This year’s al Quds Day rally Has attracted more protesters than in previous years due to it taking place against the backdrop of the ongoing bombardment of Gaza. Many of these people have travelled down from as far afield as Scotland in coaches and buses which have been put on by the organizers. As Jews we are commanded to be merciful to all of God’s creations whether Jew or non Jew all creation. It is Zionism that has created all the problems. As well as focusing on Palestine on al Quds day, the march is acknowledged as a symbol for all oppressed people globally. As tensions in the region and around the world continue to rise, organisers will be hoping events like the Quds rally will be a source of unity for all.
