Mindanawons join protests vs Israeli invasion in Gaza

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (MindaNews/19 July)- The international outrage against Israel’s invasion in Gaza has sparked protest rallies in some parts of Mindanao.

Around 30 Muslim students joined by their Christian fellows from various universities here staged a protest rally at the Freedom Kiosk in Divisoria, Cagayan de Oro City today (Saturday).

The students, some waving miniature Palestinian flags, urged the United Nations to stop the Israeli invasion in Gaza.

“We want the international community and the United Nations to see the injustice and violence brought by the Israeli invasion against the people in Gaza,” said Prof. Mehmet Derindag of Liceo de Cagayan University.

Last Thursday, Maranao youth burned an Israeli flag in Marawi City to show their outrage and support to the Palestinian residents.

Similar protests were also reported in the key Mindanao cities of Davao, General Santos and Cotabato over the week as the Israeli army stepped up their offensive along the Gaza strip where militants kept firing rockets to Israel.

“Innocent Palestinians fell victim to the violence. Children are dying,” Derindag said.

Jalani Pamlian of the Muslim Youth Center said the Muslim communities around the world cannot simply watch the Israeli army bomb the houses in Gaza.

Pamlian said most of those who died were not combatants but civilians caught in the crossfire.

“We can not leave Gaza alone. This Ummah (community) will not leave Gaza alone,” he said. (Froilan Gallardo/MindaNews)

    the current israeli military responses to attacks by hamas extremists are an act of self-defense,and not naked aggression. as a matter of survival and justice, they have to protect their race and homeland that existed there since the time of abraham and moses,at least 2,000 years before the prophet mohammad (pbuh). the only overwhelming force in this situation is the force of morality.

    For your information, most of the Jews currently live in Palestine are strangers to that place. they are immigrants from Europe. they are not really native Jews but Ashkenazim who converted to Judaism after the fall of Jerusalem to Persians. Palestine is not their homeland either. Jesus and Mohammad were distant cousins from the seeds of Ismael and Isaac. these very Jews are the people who always deviate from the teachings of Moses and all the prophets sent to them. in fact, they betrayed Jesus to the Romans to eliminate him and accusing him of being impostor. This very Israel state is not legitimate. It is apparent land grabbing programmed by Zionists. In fact, Orthodox Jews opposed to this state because according to the Torah, Jews must remain in diaspora status until the coming of the Messiah. Messiah has not yet come until these days.
