Largest-ever rally for Palestine
On Saturday, April 20, thousands of concerned Americans will gather in Washington, D.C., on the White House Ellipse to protest Israel's brutal attacks on Palestinian civilians and to call on our government to adopt a Mideast policy that is based on justice and on American, not Israeli interests. It is essential Muslims and people other faith turn out to make our voices heard on this important issue and to counter the disinformation being put out by the pro-Israel lobby. Organizers expect this to be the largest-ever rally in support of Palestine in the United States.
"It is our duty to show our solidarity with the suffering Muslims and Christians of Palestine," said CAIR Board Chairman Omar Ahmad.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "He who amongst you sees something abominable should modify it with the help of his hand; and if he has not strength enough to do it, then he should do it with his tongue; and if he has not strength enough to do it, (even) then he should (abhor it) from his heart and that is the least of faith." Sahih Muslim, Hadith 16
WHEN: Saturday, April 20, 11 a.m.
WHERE: The White House Ellipse (South side of the White House, 16th and Constitution N.W.)
