No Quds-Day in Berlin!

Like in the last years, the Mideast Freedom Forum Berlin again supports the activities against the antisemitic "Quds-March".

The "Quds day” (Quds=Jerusalem in Arabic) is an Iranian national holiday for the destruction of Israel. The "Quds-Day" was introduced in 1979 by Ayatollah Khomeini, the leader of the Iranian revolution. To this day, this central aim (the destruction of Israel) of the regime has not changed. In Iran, mass ralleys are organized by the Iranian regime, and slogans are "death to Israel" and "death to the United States".

In Berlin, circles close to the Iranian regime are organizing a Berlin version of the "Quds-March". The demonstration takes place in Berlin on June 9.

It is inapprehensable that it is possible to march for the destruction of the largest Jewish community in the world - Israel - in the midst of Berlin.

Two demonstrations will take place organized against the Quds-march in Berlin and one in Hamburg, against anti-Semitic, and homophobic Islamist rallies and propaganda and call for solidarity with Israel, the Iranian freedom movement and democratic forces in the Middle East.

The Mideast Freedom Forum Berlin supports all alliances groups and calls upon everyone, to participate and support the demonstrations against the Quds-March.
