A meeting arranged by Adhaalath party was held on the evening of 1st February on Alimas Carnival grounds. Speakers were Shaikh Mohmmed Didi, Sheikh Nasrullah and Sheikh Ilyas Hussain. Sheikh Mohmmed Didi spoke on the issue of Palestine. He elucidated on the history of Palestine and the fallacy of Jewish claim to the land and how the Zionists stole the land. He also spoke on the Israeli plans for expansion. Sheikh Nasrullah, a highly articulate scholar mesmerized the huge gathering speaking on the issue of Valentine’s Day, its pagan roots and how celebrating such a day is not for Muslims. Sheikh Ilyas Hussain, the charismatic vice president of scholar’s council of Adhaalath Party spoke on the importance of remembering death and accountability to God.
It was announced that the donations to the Gaza Fund has crossed 1 million Rufiyaas (1 million and 84 thousand now). After the meeting, many people queued up to make their donations to the fund.
The fund collection was started on 9th January on which a rally was held for Palestine. The rally was participated by a number of political parties and NGOs and was one of the biggest rallies seen in Male’ in recent times. The sheer number of the gathering demonstrated how the people of Maldives feel about the murderous Zionists and our love and affinity for our brothers and sisters in Palestine.
Here I paste the short speech which I gave during the rally on 9th January.
“In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful.
From the streets of Washington DC to London, from the streets of Cairo to Manila, we hear the whole world, the just and peace loving people of the world, whether they are Muslims, Christians, Hindus or even Jews condemning the latest aggression of the Zionist state. The world watches helplessly as the most murderous and brutal military machine in the world, the IDF or the Israeli Defense Force bombs an innocent population, kills small children and women. As usual the Jewish state simply ignores the outcries of the world and is carrying on with its genocide.
Israel is a racist state. It is built on apartheid. It was built on stolen land. It has driven away the inhabitants of Palestine from their homes and made them refugees and scattered them all over the world. It has persisted in carrying out a program of systematic genocide against entire polulations. It has consistently violated every international law, from the Geneva convention on human rights to all the resolutions of the United Nations that were passed against it. Do you know? Form 5 March 1948 to 11 August 2006, 101, I repeat, 101 resolutions have been passed against Israel. And it has simply ignored all of them. What do you call such a state? A rogue state, an outlaw state, a terrorist state. They can get away after cold blooded murder of more than 50 innocent civilians taking shelter in a UN compound.
We must all teach our children how the Zionists stole our land. It was the British who agreed to give the Zionist Jews the land of Palestine. They gave it for a price. The price was that the Zionists must get the Americans into First World War, to fight along with the British. After the World War 1, the British agreed to make a Jewish nation in Palestine, the agreement was called the Belfour Declaration, and Jews from all over the world migrated to Palestine. From then on, the Jews engaged in terrorism. They killed and terrorized and drove away the native Arab population, they massacred entire Arab villages. They even attacked the British who gave them Palestine. They blasted the British run King David Hotel in Jerusalem. Do you know who was leading the terrorist gang called the Irgun gang, that blasted King David Hotel. It was Menachim Begin, the first Prime Minister of Israel.
How does the Zionists get away with all the terrorism, and all the genocide. The answer is they have too much influence in the government of United States. They run the world media. They control what we see, hear and read. Do you know that the founding fathers of the United States warned against the Jews? About 200 years ago, George Washington the father of American Independence said; I quote “The destructive Jewish influence over our lives and future, surpasses the danger of all our enemies' armies. They are even a hundred times more dangerous and fatal for our freedoms'’. Another elder of American Independence Benjamin Franklin said, while the constitution of the United States was being written in the year 1789: 'Oh gentlemen, in every land where the Jews have settled, they caused the moral level to be lost, corrupted its commercial covenant and are still isolated and do not merge with the others'. Then he said: 'If they are not driven away from the United States by the very words of the constitution, then their flood will pour forth to such a degree that they will be able to rule our nation and destroy it. Not two thousands years will pass before the destiny of our descendants will be to be workers in the fields in order to guarantee food for the Jews, while the Jews remain in the treasure houses, rubbing their hands with delight'. How prophetic these leaders were! How true they were!
Jews have no right to Palestine. Their only claim is that their ancestors lived in Palestine thousands of years ago. If such claims are valid, then Muslims have a right to Spain. Because Muslims ruled Spain for more than 500 years.
Palestine is close to our hearts. Because it is the land of the great prophets of Allah. It is the land of Al Aqsa. Even though we cannot do anything to help the helpless brothers and sisters of Palestine our prayers are with them. We grew up loving Palestine. Insha Allah we, will die loving Palestine. And Insha Allah we will raise our children loving Palestine. We must teach our young generation the truth about Palestine. How the Jews stole our lands, what schemes they have to expand their territories from the Nile to Euphrates. Their master plan for the so called Greater Israel.
The problem in Palestine is not Islamic terrorism. The problem is occupation, the problem is oppression. The problem will never be solved till Israel vacate all occupied territories, and give the Palestinian their full independence and rights with Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine. This is recognized by all the just people of the world. Some of the most vocal people who campaign for the rights of Palestine are from among non Muslims, like British Parliament member George Galloway who campaigns on every satellite channel and newspaper for Palestine. We, the people of the Maldives stand united with all the justice loving people of the world, in supporting the Palestinians in their just struggle for their homeland.
May Allah, Azza wa Jalla, give victory for those valiant men and women who are fighting the oppressor Zionist State.”
