Protest Rally: For a free and democratic Middle East! Against the Islamist Quds Day! Solidarity with Israel!

Friday, July 25, 2014 1.30 p.m., Kurfürstendamm / Schlueterstrasse, George Grosz Square.

Ayatollah Khomeini called upon his followers in 1979 to fight for the "liberation" of Jerusalem and the destruction of Israel, Islamists in the whole world use the end of the fasting month Ramadan, the so called “Al Quds Day” (Jerusalem Day) as a day of fight of political Islam.

On July 25, 2014, Islamists will demonstrate in Berlin, while the Iranian nuclear program is advancing rapidly. In 2009, a nationwide uprising in Iran was crushed with extreme violence, and since then, the human rights situation has deteriorated drastically. The Iranian regime uses violence, oppresses and persecutes dissenters, women, gays and ethnic minorities; they are persecuted, imprisoned, tortured and killed publicly.

At the same time, the Iranian regime is militarily active in Syria on the side of the Assad-regime – directly or indirectly via the terrorist organization Hezbollah, which is funded, guided and equipped by the Iranian regime. Under the pretext of fighting terrorism, the Tehran regime intervened militarily in Iraq with the aim to control as much as possible. With the attempt to develop missiles with greater range, the Iranian regime is also threatening Europe.

Essential for the Iranian foreign policy are plans for the destruction of the Jewish State of Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East. This is why the Iranian regime supports Hamas, which wants to destroy Israel with money and the delivery of weapons. The hatred against Jews in June led to the murder of three young Israelis in the West Bank by members of Hamas.

The annual staged "Quds Day" is one of the most important demonstrations of power of the Iranian terror regime. In Germany, anti-Semites with different backgrounds participate at the Islamist march - the neo-Nazi spectrum as well as the so-called "anti-imperialist" left-wing extremist spectrum. The common ground is the hostility to Israel and to the community of free nations.

Demonstrate with us:

We express our solidarity with the majority of Iranians and their struggle for
     freedom, who are brutally suppressed by the Iranian dictatorship
     Against any form of anti-Semitic, Islamist or homophobic propaganda.
     Against human rights violations in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
     For a complete ban on Hezbollah in Germany and the EU.
     For solidarity with Israel and the Iranian freedom movement!
