Israelis burn and tear up Islam’s holy book, the Qur’an


Colonial Israeli settlers have desecrated Islam’s holy book, the Qur’an.

The Zionists tore and burnt copies of the Qur’an before throwing them in a trash container in the Old City of al-Khalil in the West Bank.

The Palestinian resistance has denounced this latest act of provocation and hatred. Hamas spokesperson Abdul-Latif Qanu says the desecration of the Muslim holy book is an unprecedented escalation and is racist. He stressed that this Israeli crime shows that the occupiers are seeking a religious war.

Islamic Jihad’s spokesperson Khader Adnan described the blasphemy as a dangerous escalation noting the Israeli aggression on religious sanctities, and the storming of the holy al-Aqsa Mosque. He called for a responsible response.

Al-Azhar University in Egypt has condemned the Islamophobic act saying it is being perpetrated under the unacceptable silence of the international community, which has failed to play a serious role regarding the inviolability of peoples and their sanctities. It says that this scene demonstrates Zionism’s barbarism, terrorism and racism.

Apartheid Israel and its settlers have a history of attacking places of worship including mosques as well as grave sites in occupied Palestine.
