Palestine’s Call to the Islamic World

Palestine’s Call to the Islamic World:
“Unless we are united, this persecution will continue”

The Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum hosted a webinar on human rights violations in Palestine. Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum president, Taha Ayhan, Youth, and Sports Minister of Turkey H.E. Mehmet Muharrem Kasapoğlu, Palestinian High Council President for youth and sports, Jibril Rajoub as well as representatives and dignitaries from the Islamic world were in attendance.

At the event Mr. Muharrem Kasapoğlu highlighted the following “What happened in Ramadan and continued throughout the holiday left agony in our hearts. It was a great tragedy to martyr hundreds of innocent people in front of the eyes of the world. Tens of thousands lost their homes and as usual, the states that try to teach the world justice and democracy took the role of the enemy. As Turkey, we reacted from the very first moment, Palestine is no ordinary state.

Jerusalem is an important symbol to all Muslims. As our President said, Muslims will continue to be persecuted in every corner of the world unless the Islamic Ummah becomes one voice. As Muslims of the world, we have to act together on Jerusalem and Palestine. We should strengthen the communication between young people and strengthen our bond of brotherhood. As Turkey, we will continue to stand by Palestine and stand against Islamophobia, as we have always done.”

Going to the International Criminal Court Top Priority

Making a joint call, leaders invited the whole world to unite on Palestine. Taha Ayhan, President of the Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum, repeated the call for the implementation of the United Nations resolutions on Palestine and Jerusalem. Noting that the Palestine and Jerusalem cause constituted the main motivation for the establishment of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Mr. Ayhan said, “It is essential that Israeli attacks against Palestinians are brought to light and the world is made aware of these injustices. The submission of documents detailing these atrocities and evidence exposing these great acts of injustice to the International Criminal Court (ICC) is of utmost importance.

It is essential to document and Israel’s human rights violations.

It is of great importance when it comes to showing the world these grave injustices.” The ICYF president concluded by emphasizing the importance of the Palestinean issue and reminding the Muslim world particularly the Muslim youth of the importance of unity and close cooperation in the Muslim community. “The Palestinean cause can only be won if we all come together,” he remarked.
