London Picket at Egyptian Embassy: Call on Arab Armies to Defend Gaza
London UK, 28 December 2008 – Hundreds of Muslims will demonstrate outside the Egyptian Embassy in London tomorrow Monday [2pm, 29th December] to demand that Arab armies move to liberate the people of Gaza from the Israeli entity’s ongoing massacre of nearly 300 men, women and children.
Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said, “As the Israeli entity continues shedding the blood of our brothers and sisters in Gaza, Arab regimes remain silent. Instead of releasing their armies, the Saudi king phoned George Bush (the butcher of Baghdad) and the Egyptian regime blamed the Palestinians, highlighting their complicity in Israel’s aggression.”
“Arab countries surrounding Palestine have over 2 million soldiers, spend over $100 billion on arms annually and dwarf Israel’s forces. Egypt alone has 220 F-16 fighter planes and 450,000 soldiers. It is time these armies move to defend Gaza and remove these rulers, re-establishing the Khilafah which will unify the Muslim lands and answer the cries of the Palestinian, Iraqi, Somali and Kashmiri mothers.”
