Gaza Demonstration and Rally dates across the UK
The Last Prophet (sa) of Allah (swt) stated: ‘He who amongst you sees something abominable should modify it with the help of his hand; and if he has not strength enough to do that, then he should do it with his tongue; and if he has not strength enough to do even that, then he should (at least abhor it) from his heart; and that is the least of faith’ [Sahih Muslim]

|*** Action alert ***
Write to your MP urging them to insist that Prime Minister Gordon Brown
acts to ensure:
â?¢Â An immediate end to Israel’s military assault on Gaza
â?¢Â An immediate end to the blockade and siege
â?¢Â An end to Israel’s violations of international
â?¢Â An end to Israeli occupation
Please use the sample letter below:
As you know the people of Gaza are being bombarded by a devastating
onslaught from Israeli F16s, tanks and warships.
Nearly 400 people have been killed in three days and while we
deplore the firing ofÂ rockets from Gaza into Israel this can in no
way justify the systematic slaughter being conducted by IsraelÂ on
a captive unarmed civilian population.
This slaughter follows almost two years of blockade which has
prevented essential supplies of food, fuel and medicines from reaching
the Palestinian people in Gaza and causing untold suffering.
I believe that the people of Britain are horrified by the current
situation and would like to ask that you requestÂ the Foreign Secretary,
David Miliband, to say exactly what measures the government is taking
to ensure an immediate end to the military attacks on Gaza and an immediate
end to the siege as the first step in ensuring that international law
is upheld in relation to the rights of the Palestinian people.
I would also like you to press the Foreign Secretary to take
steps to ensure that the favourable status of Israel in the EU, including
the EU trade agreement is removed immediately since it is a country
which is violating international law and I do not wish my taxes to
contribute to the economy of such a state.
