The BC Muslim Association firmly establishes our commitment to the safety,
security, and freedom of the Palestinian people.
We strongly condemn the continuing heavy handed and disproportional attacks of
the Israeli authorities. As of this writing there is breaking news that 20 civilians
were killed by Israeli airstrikes against Palestinians in Gaza. According to Human
Rights watch, the Israeli authorities are guilty of crimes of Apartheid and
We ask our community to not only pray for the safety and security of those who
face generational oppression, but also to mobilize, with our allies, and provide
urgent medical and humanitarian support to the Palestinian People.
We also ask you join us at www.nccm.ca/alaqsa in telling the Federal Government
to denounce, in no uncertain terms, the attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
The Israeli government does not represent the views of all Jewish people and we ask
those allies from the Jewish community, who denounce acts of violence and oppression, to stand with us in this cause.
