Muslim scholars calls for 'global uprising' against Israel

World Bulletin/News Desk

A prestigious group of Muslim scholars on Sunday called for staging what it called a “global uprising” in support of the Gaza Strip, which has been reeling under a wide-scale Israeli offensive for three weeks now.

“A global uprising by free people, especially Arabs and Muslims, is a duty,” the International Union of Muslim Scholars said.

“The free world should quickly act to end the Zionist aggression on Gaza and uphold the rights of the Palestinian people," it added in a statement.

It called for ending a blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip since 2006, opening the borders of the strip and ending what it called the "Zionist" occupation of Palestinian territories.

Israel has been pounding the Gaza Strip - which has been reeling under a crippling Israeli blockade since 2006 - from air, ground and sea since July 7, leaving 1031 dead and 6233 injured and destroying hundreds of homes.

Israel claims that the military offensive aims at undermining the ability of Gaza's resistance movements to launch rocket attacks

The Israeli offensive – codenamed "Protective Edge" - is the self-proclaimed Jewish state's third major offensive against the densely populated Gaza Strip - home to 1.8 million Palestinians - within the last six years.

The International Union of Muslim Scholars said in its statement that Arab and Islamic states have to take steps at the international level to put pressure on Israel to halt its assault on Gaza.

I think the U.S. needs to help the most trusted friends we have because if we don't help them God will not help us.

As the U.S. gives more aid to your Zionist killers, and all Americans get to foot the bill for it and have the blood of all these innocent people on our hands too.. People are dying in the streets. this is sicker than sick. Israel and all who support this genocide should be hiding their heads in the sand in shame.
