Egyptian scholars issue pro-Gaza statement

Aug. 3, 2014 11:17 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 3, 2014 11:17 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Amidst unprecedented Egyptian support to Israel in its military offensive against Hamas, a group of Egyptian scholars issued a statement Saturday declaring support to the Gaza Strip.

More than 60 scholars including academics, writers, poets, artistic figures among others signed the statement which described the Israeli military offensive as a “criminal war of genocide” against civilian residents of the Gaza Strip.

“We, the undersigned Egyptian innovators, journalists and intellectuals announce full solidarity with our Palestinian brothers in Gaza against the criminal war of genocide which the army of Zionists is committing against civilian residents in the Gaza Strip.

Thousands of martyrs have fell so far and others have been injured the majority of whom are elderly people, women and children marking an ugly breach of international conventions which incriminate the excessive use of force during armed conflicts especially against unarmed civilians.”

The statement greeted the Palestinian resistance for the courageous fighters from all factions showed as they “confronted with limited capabilities the Zionist arsenal with its state-of-the art weapons of destruction provided by the West and the United States to the Zionist entity.”

The signatories urged Egyptian official and unofficial circles to provide as much assistance as possible to the Gaza Strip to help the Palestinian people in the face of the Israeli aggression.

The list of signatories included renowned popular Egyptian poet Abdul-Rahman al-Abnoudi and editor-in-chief of al-Ahram daily newspaper Muhammad Abdul-Hadi Allam as well us famous actors and journalists.
