Anti Israeli Rally in Moroco Attracts thousands Protesters

JNN 27 Mar 2012 Rabat : Tens of thousands of protestors have held a massive anti-Israel rally in Morocco’s capital city of Rabat, demanding the liberation of al-Aqsa Mosque.

Demonstration was held in front of the Moroccan parliament and is said to be part of the ‘Global March to al-Quds (Jerusalem),’ which is scheduled to commemorate the Palestinian Land Day on March 30.

Protesters set Israeli flags on fire, calling for the freedom of the al-Aqsa Mosque from Israeli occupation.

During the march, demonstrators waved Palestinian flags and chanted “The people want to free al-Aqsa,” and “A million martyrs are going to Jerusalem.” They also burned Israeli flags.

The protest also forced an Israeli diplomat, attending an international conference in the city, to leave Morocco immediately amid high anti-Israeli sentiments.

‘Global March to al-Quds (Jerusalem)’ began in various locations across the globe and is heading toward the countries that neighbor Palestine, namely Jordan, Egypt, Syria, and Lebanon, in order to get as close as possible to East al-Quds.

The initiative also includes demonstrations in front of Israeli embassies in the capitals of various countries as well as demonstrations in the main public squares of major cities around the world.

Since the occupation of East al-Quds, Israel has been trying to alter the identity of the city through measures such as the construction of illegal housing units for Israelis, the eviction of Palestinians, and the demolition of their houses.

Israeli diplomat David Saranga claims I was told to leave ASAP “There were maybe a 100,000 demonstrators who yelled and waved signs – and that was that.”
