Islamic Movement in Nigeria Asks Federal Government To Cut Ties With Israel Over ‘Barbaric Attacks’ On Palestine
The Islamic Movement in Nigeria has called on President Bola Tinubu to immediately cut all diplomatic ties with the State of Israel over the continued bombardment and killing of civilians in Gaza.
The statement said Israel had violated the charter of the United Nations and resolutions concerning its “illegal occupation” through which it has “continued to extend and encroach into the very paltry territory of Palestine”.
The statement was issued on Saturday the 29th of October, 2023 during a press conference addressed by Prof. Abdullahi Danladi on behalf of the Resource Forum Islamic Movement.
The movement described the bombardment of Gaza by Israel as a crime against humanity that must be condemned by all, adding that the desperation shown by the attacks only exposes the weakness of the State of Israel.
The statement also condemned the United States for sending warships to Israel in support of the “ongoing massacre and genocide” in Palestine.
The statement read in part, “The wave of support being shown to the weak and oppressed people of Palestine globally by people of different faiths and nationalities, including some right-thinking Jews is a clear testimony to the fact that the illegal state of Israel today stands out as the most hated and cursed state in the world.
“It is a known fact that Israel has serially violated the charter of the United Nations and resolutions concerning this illegal occupation by which they have continued to extend and encroach into the very paltry territory of Palestine.”
It continued, “Indeed, the Islamic Movement under the revered leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) has for over three decades consistently shown its unflinching support to the oppressed Palestine.
“We will like to call on those who are ignorant of the history and events in the Middle East and tend to see the Zionists as their brothers in faith, to see things beyond the prism of faith, race, colour, etc.
“The recent attacks on churches and hospitals are enough to show that it is beyond the issue of religion, rather it is a crime against humanity which must be condemned. The desperation shown by the barbaric attacks only exposes the weakness of the illegal state of Israel and it is a clear sign of their inevitable collapse and downfall in not a very far future. The final victory from Allah is for the oppressed.”
“On this note, we join our voices in calling the Nigerian government to immediately cut off all relations and ties with the illegal state of blood mongers,” it added.
