Dear youths of Europe and North America,
I will like you to imagine the scenario that if #Palestine is your country where your ancestors had dwelled for thousands of years.
Then some foreign invaders with the support of world powers invaded your countries killed hundreds of thousands of your people, expelled more than half the population as #refugees in other countries & the rest that remained placed them in concentration camps called ‘#Gaza’ & #WestBank’.
This is the sad story of #Palestinians who are treated lower than animals by their wicked & evil #Zionist Occupiers.
The occupation & daily humiliation of Palestinians is the biggest injustice in the world today. This is the main reason why it is assumed that Muslims hate the West. Some people exploit these emotions & brand all the people of the West as enemies of Islam & Muslims. Such people claimed that Western civilians are legitimate target of attack.
It is the manifestation of that pervasive thought that the world saw in the #ParisAttacks. Innocent people were killed by heartless terrorists who were shooting slogans in support of Palestine & Syria.
We must understand dear Friends that the existence of injustice anywhere is a threat to all & the biggest injustice today is in Palestine where Western powers unconditionally support bloodthirsty Zionists killers who are no different from #ISIS & #BokoHaram.
Dear Friends, our #commonworry worry is terrorism. Please read the second Letter of Ayatollah #Khamenei to the youths of Europe and North America for more enlightenment on this issue.
DDear Friends, this is an excerpt from the Letter that is tagged #commonworry of Ayatollah #Khamenei to the youths of Europe and North America on #Palestine:
“The other side of these contradictory policies is seen in supporting the state terrorism of Israel. The oppressed people of Palestine have experienced the worst kind of terrorism for the last sixty years. If the people of Europe have now taken refuge in their homes for a few days and refrain from being present in busy places- it is decades that a Palestinian family is not secure even in its own home from the Zionist regime’s death and destruction machinery. What kind of atrocious violence today is comparable to that of the settlement constructions of the Zionists regime?
This regime- without ever being seriously and significantly censured by its influential allies or even by the so-called independent international
organizations- everyday demolishes the homes of Palestinians and destroys their orchards and farms. This is done without even giving them time to gather their belongings or agricultural products and usually it is done in front of the terrified and tear-filled eyes of women and children who witness the brutal beatings of their family members who in some cases are being dragged away to gruesome torture chambers.
In today’s world, do we know of any other violence on this scale and scope and for such an extended period of time? Shooting down a woman in the middle of the street for the crime of protesting against a soldier who is armed to the teeth- if this is not terrorism, what is?
This barbarism, because it is
being done by the armed forces of an occupying government, should not be called extremism? Or maybe only because these scenes have been seen repeatedly on television screens for sixty years, they should no longer stir our consciences.”
Our #commonworry in the world today is terrorism but Western imperialism use double-standard when condemning terrorism.
For example, if a heavily-armed #Israeli soldier shot & kill a #Palestinian woman protesting the brutal occupation of her land & country, to Western Imperialists this is not terrorism. They call it “self-defense”.
It is such gross injustice that fuel the extreme hatred that the world saw in the #ParisAttacks. Western powers armed to the teeth the bloodthirsty regime of #Israel while at the same time blockading Palestinians in concentration camps called “#Gaza” & “#WestBank” & deny them the legitimate means of resisting this murderous & inhuman occupation by the Israeli regime.
