Six full months have passed since the aggression on Gaza, half a year of genocide, killing, continuous fear and kidnapping of lives in unbearable horror. The Zionists, have treated the people of Gaza throughout this period with unspeakable brutality, so much so that they [Zionists] said one to another: Do not consider them human beings!

They left no mortal old man, no infant, no pregnant woman, no shelter, no relief convoys, no medical teams, no hospitals, and no patients in intensive care rooms.

The bombers and destructive weapons are American, and the hands that brutalize the Palestinians are Zionists, share the crime equally, yet the talk is always about democracy, human rights, and the fight against terrorism, and that the Zionist entity is the only democracy in the region! with a fatal inability to provide relief even with water, for the thirsty and dying from the loss of water, in addition to relief with food and medicine!

Inability of the neighbor and relative, the brother and the partner in fate, what a shame and what a humiliation!

A call on the occasion of Eid, the occasion in which people rejoice and the people of Gaza become living increasingly in sadness, and grief!

A call to all zealous people in Arab and Muslim countries, especially in the countries neighbouring occupied Palestine, in Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey!

A call to all who are jealous of the sanctities and shrines of Muslims!

Do not let the enemy single out your brothers in Gaza and Palestine. They are extravagant in exterminating them by all means, they desecrated homes and sanctities. The Zionist soldiers now deem permissible everything, even the sanctities of women in their bedrooms!

A call to the young Muslims to be jealous of the mothers and women of the people of Gaza, for the mothers of the people of Gaza are your mothers, and the women of the people of Gaza are your women, and their sanctities are your sanctities, for the Muslims’ obligation is one. The Prophet, may Allah’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: “The Muslims’ obligation is one, so whoever fails a Muslim, the curse of God, the angels, and all of mankind is upon him, and no ransom or justice will be accepted from him.”

The Prophet May Allah’s prayers and peace be upon him, said during the Farewell Pilgrimage while addressing the Muslims, including the Arab, the Persian, the Ethiopian, and the Roman: (Your blood, your money, and your honor among you are sacred), and he said: (A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. He does not oppress him or abandon him), and in a narration: (And he does not betray him).

For the Muslims, the sanctity of their blood is one, and their obligation is one, and the lives that are lost in Gaza every day in scores, due to the loss of the helper, are as sacred as the lives that guard the enemy on the borders in Egypt and Jordan, there is no difference, all the same, and no soul is more deserving of protection than another if the helper is few and the Jihad becomes a must when the enemy invades Muslim countries.

These borders are artificial, set by the occupying enemy at one time, and prepared them for such a hateful day, to delude us and make us states, homelands, and nations as he wanted, not one nation as the Quran calls us in His Saying: “And indeed, this nation of yours is one nation, and I am your Lord, so fear Me”, and The Almighty Says: (This nation of yours is one nation, and I am your Lord, so worship me.)

As for the fronts open against the enemy outside Palestine, their efforts are appreciated, and it is hoped that they will redouble their efforts in clashing with the enemy until they overburden and weaken it, so that they [Zionists] find themselves forced to seriously negotiate a ceasefire and lift the siege, in order to help their brothers and alleviate their suffering.

I say in this regard, the more pressure on the enemy increases on the fronts open against it, the more pressure from scholars on Muslim rulers who surrender to the enemy increases, and the more pressure increases on their subjects to blame what is taking place of genocide in Gaza on neglecting and letting them all down, and obligating them to do what they are obligated to do of support and backing, whenever they do that, the enemy and its allies reconsider their calculations and put an end to their disregard for the lives of innocent people in our homeland.

Muslims in general in all corners of the earth must not stop supporting their cause with abundant and continuous flow of money, for money is the backbone of jihad, and they should not stop boycotting all products that support the enemy, for all of that is jihad for the sake of Allah and defeating the enemy. The Almighty said: “Nor gain they from the enemy a gain, but a good deed is recorded for them therefore.” He also said; “Peradventure Allah will restrain the might of those who disbelieve. Allah is stronger in might and stronger in punishment”.
