July 10th, 2015: International Quds Day

“The Quds Day is a universal day. It is not an exclusive day for Quds itself. It is a day for the oppressed to rise and stand up against the arrogant”.

– Āyatollāh Ozmā Ruhollāh Khomeini

Reported from Digital Resistance, July

Al-Quds Day is an annual event, supporting a just peace for Palestine, and opposing Apartheid Israel’s control of Jerusalem (al-Quds in Arabic: القـُدْس), the international city that stands as a powerful symbol to three of the world’s great religious traditions. Pro-justice and anti-Zionist Apartheid demonstrations are held on this day in most Muslim and Arab countries and by Muslim and non-Muslim communities around the world, including the United States.

It is held each year on the last Friday of the Muslim month of Ramaḍān. The Day of al-Quds is also an opportunity to stand on the side of the oppressed worldwide, not just in the Holy Land. Jerusalem Day is not an Islamic religious event but rather a human rights event open to both Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
