Bahrain’s Sheikh Qassim: No resistance without Al-Quds Day
Top Bahraini cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim stresses the importance of commemorating Al-Quds Day.
Top Bahraini cleric Sheikh Isa Qassim, talking on the occasion of Al-Quds Day, said, "If the resistance is for the sake of Al-Aqsa Mosque and for the sake of Al-Quds and its sanctity, then Al-Quds Day, celebrating it, participating in it, and giving it its fair share of seriousness, serves the resistance."
Qassim delivered Friday a speech during which he stressed the importance of commemorating Al-Quds Day since it mirrors the Ummah's unity, setting a scarifying, unwavering line of confrontation until the end of Zionism.
"If the flame of Al-Quds Day dies out and the Ummah shows reluctance in commemorating [this day], or if its commemoration is exclusive for only one sect or one country, then the line of resistance will wither and die out," he stressed, reiterating the importance of celebrating Al-Quds day.
It is worth mentioning that Bahrain witnessed massive demonstrations in many parts of the country against the normalization of Israeli occupation.
The demonstrations took place in spite of difficult and repressive security measures, amid fears of another wave of arrests.
The first demonstrations took place in the capital, Manama, last Wednesday, shortly after Qassim's speech in which he called on the masses to "wash the shame of normalization."
Aside from the capital, Manama, a large demonstration was also held in the town of Samaheej, which is near Bahrain International Airport.
Protests continued in a number of locations, including Sitra Island and the towns of Al-Shakhoura, Abu Saiba, Karbabad, Al-Musallah, Sanabis, among others.
