Against all anti-Semitism and the Al-quds day

On May 7, 2021, the International Women in Power initiative demonstrated in front of the Blue Mosque on the Alster.

Al-Quds Day is the largest regular anti-Semitic march in several German cities. The Al-Quds supporters call for the destruction of Israel. With their annual parade, which always takes place at the end of the Ramadan, they spread an anti-Israeli and anti-American attitude and thus stir up hatred and intolerance in the world.

“In another political corner, however, the protests against the IZH are mildly ridiculed. “A curiosity awaits Hamburg next Friday,” says a press release from the Hamburg Forum for Intercultural Coexistence, or Hafiz for short. The planned demo is one without cause, it is said. The question is asked: Why again in front of the Blue Mosque? "
