Int’l Quds Day and the Necessity of Global Support for Palestine

World Quds Day is commemorated today under circumstances in which we bear witness to one of the biggest cases of murder and genocide in history.

The deep humanitarian catastrophe of the past six months in Palestine and particularly in Gaza manifests another painful and unfortunate side of the historical breach of the rights of the oppressed but steadfast Palestinians. It is also a manifestation of the open imposition of force and coercion as well as various internationally known murders and crimes against the original and authentic inhabitants of Palestine by the illegitimate and impermanent Israeli regime. These days, not only the inculpable Palestinian women and men as well as unhoused and innocent children are being slaughtered by the Israeli criminals, but hospitals, medical and relief centers, mosques and churches are not spared from the evil of the authorities and troops of this cruel regime. The mass murder of more than 33,000 Palestinians, mostly women and children, in just six months, alongside repeated prohibition and prevention by the Israeli regime of the delivery of humanitarian aid, food and medicine to the entire Gaza Strip, and the use of hunger as a weapon against the Gaza residents, have set the alarm bells ringing for the occurrence of the most unprecedented human catastrophe of the 21st century. It is now crystal clear to all that one of the dangerous objectives of the Israeli regime in imposing a full blockade on the Gaza Strip and preventing the delivery of urgent and sufficient humanitarian assistance to its residents is to create conditions for the social and civil collapse of Gaza and eliminating all signs of life as well as the historical and civilizational identity of Palestine.
Today it is incumbent more than ever to bring to the spotlight of the international community, the United Nations Security Council, the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court the elements that prove there is an ongoing genocide and mass murder in Gaza by the Zionist regime. It is now necessary to take effective preventive and punitive actions.
We have conducted extensive consultations in international forums with the UN secretary-general and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) for humanitarian cooperation as well the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to emphasize the necessity of the cessation of hostility and delivery of food and medicine. The UN secretary-general and the president of the ICRC have taken important steps. However, due to the full alignment of the White House and some other Western governments with the Israeli regime, such humanitarian efforts have not yielded appropriate results so far. It is a great regret that despite the passage of about six months from the brutal attacks of the usurper Zionist regime in Gaza, we are witnessing persistent inaction by the international community and particularly the UN and its Security Council, whose main responsibility is to ensure international peace and security. The United States is one main side to blame for the continuation of the war and the obstruction of efforts to cease it.
