Hamas: Destroying Qassam tombstone a crime

[ PIC 12/04/2012 – 11:36 AM ]

BEIRUT, (PIC)– Hamas denounced the Israeli authorities for attempting to destroy the headstone of Sheikh Ezzuddin Al-Qassam’s grave in Haifa.

The movement, in a statement on Wednesday, described the diggings in the cemetery as racist, charging that Israel was not respecting the dead or the living.

The blatant attack on the Islamic cemetery reflects an intention to distort the history and to blackout the Sheikh’s history in resisting occupation and oppression, it said.

Hamas called on the Arab League, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and UNESCO to assume their role in curbing the Israeli authorities’ consistent violations and crimes.

For his part, Arab member of the Israeli parliament Jamal Zahalke has warned the Israeli authorities against tampering with the grave of Sheikh Qassam.

He said, in a press release on Wednesday, that he addressed a message to those authorities asking them to immediately stop the digging in the graveyard, describing it as a grave provocation of the Palestinian people’s national, religious, and humanitarian feelings.

He warned that any violation of the sanctity of graves especially that of Sheikh Qassam would be met with a strong reaction on the part of the Palestinian people.

The Aqsa foundation for endowment and heritage had revealed that a Jewish company was assigned by the Israeli ministry of transportation to lay down a sewage pipeline through the Qassam cemetery in preparation for the construction of a railway passing through the same cemetery.
