ICNA to Obama: Demand End to Israeli Aggression

ICNA to Obama: Demand End to Israeli Aggression

Jul 13, 2014

 
-—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—-
 
(NEW YORK, NY, July 13, 2014) – In the past six days Israel has killed 165 people, many women and children in over 1200 attacks on Gaza in Operation Protective Edge. Today, Israel has intensified the assault campaign by launching a ground incursion on the besieged strip.

The use of violence against civilians is never okay. It is unacceptable for a civilian population to be bombarded through air, sea and ground attacks.
Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon has indicated that the military assault will continue indefinitely and utilize everything at Israel’s disposal.
“The oppressed and the oppressor cannot be compared,” said Naeem Baig, president of the Islamic Circle of North America. “Israel’s actions can in no way be defended. It is an affront to human rights.”
The Obama Administration must demand that Israel end its ruthless assault against an occupied people who continuously undergo an illegal encroachment of their land.
In this month of Ramadan, pray for the safety, security and well being of the people of Gaza. Donations for Gaza can be sent through www.hhrd.org. ICNA asks that individuals immediately contact their local congressperson to express their opposition to Israel’s invasion:

First Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah

First Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah

The inclusion of poor in our festivity must be done without which we cannot complete our service to Allah SWT. How many societies the poor is left out of the pie and the rich eats the entire pie. A few weeks ago, we celebrated Eid-ul Fitr. And on that Eid, we enjoy its virtues by giving the Zakaat-ul Fitr to the poor before we begin the Eid prayer. This Eid we have to complete its celebration by giving 1/3 of the meat to the poor and needy. As Allah SWT says: Then eat thereof and feed therewith the poor who have a very hard time. (22:28) EID MUBAARAK!
