AL-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition calls on our allies and all people of conscience to take immediate action to defend Palestine, Jerusalem and Al Aqsa. Al-Aqsa, the Noble Sanctuary, and the capital of occupied Palestine – Jerusalem- calls for our immediate and ongoing solidarity. The Zionist entity called “Israel” is escalating its long-stated plans for the ethnic cleansing of Jerusalem of its native Palestinian Christian, Muslim and Non-Jewish natives.
For over 69 years the Zionist entity has repeatedly announced its plan to Judaize Jerusalem and has done so through social engineering programs, home demolitions, evictions, land confiscations, abductions, murder and by an escalation of military violence and the mobilization of settler violence.
Despite the expansion of the Zionist regime into Palestinian lands and the invasion of Al Aqsa by Zionist armed and settler forces, there has been a media blackout in the West, particularly in the U.S.- where the media has continued to portray the Zionist colonizers as victims of the unarmed, and colonized, native Palestinian population.
It is critical that all civil, religious institutions and communities begin to devise immediate and sustained actions to expose the violence of the Zionist entity, to support Palestinian as they resist the expanded occupation and colonization, and to mobilize people to take direct action in support of Palestinian liberation of Jerusalem and all of Palestine from the yokes of Zionist colonization.
