Rebuiding Gaza Project @ IISS

The Help and Care Society of the Islamic International School - Secondary (IISS) organised a charity fair to raise funds for the rebuilding of Gaza. The President of the project, Syed Adam Emir Putra gave a speech on this project:

SPEECH FOR REBUILDING GAZA PROJECT BY HELP AND CARE SOCIETY, IISM

All praises and thanks are due to Allah, Lord of the worlds. May the peace and blessings be upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW), his household and his companions. Ameen

Assalamualaikum wrb fellow brothers and sisters. I AM SYED ADAM, PRESIDENT OF THIS PROJECT, "REBUILD GAZA".
As you are well aware, the Help and Care Society is holding this fair to collect funds for our brothers and sisters in Palestine who have just experienced war.

Many of them have lost their homes and family members and are living under the rubbles and in community halls. In our humble capacity, we as muslims should feel obliged to help them.

Amongst the causes we will be assisting, would be to provide protection to those displaced people for the coming winter which will be very cold and wet. They would need at least some basic shelter, electrical heaters, blankets, food, and medical attention.

Allah states in Surah At Taubah, ayah 60.
Charity is meant for the poor, the needy, for those whose profession it is to distribute it, for encouraging (recent converts), for the (freeing) of bonded servants, for those (straining under a load) of debt, for use in the cause of God and also (to help stranded) travellers. These are the stipulated set by God, and God is full of knowledge and wisdom.

Allah also states in Surah Al Baqarah, ayah 261.
Those who spend their money in the cause of God is like that of seed grain. From it seven robust stalks rise, and each stalk contains a hundred grains. God gives abundantly to whomever He wants for God is enough of a provider and is full of knowledge.

From the above ayahs, it is an obligation for us to help our fellow brothers and sisters in Islam. They are a part of us. They are our family.

So please spend your money for this good cause. Abu Hurairah (r.a.) reported Allah's Messenger (s.a.w.s.) as saying: "Charity does not in any way decrease the wealth and the servant who forgives, Allah adds to his respect; and the one who shows humility, Allah elevates him in the estimation (of the people)." (Hadith Riwayat Muslim)

Your money will be your witness on the Day Of Judgement.

SO SPEND ALL YOUR MONEY UNTIL YOU'RE BROKE!

Before I go, I want to take this opportunity to thank our team members who have helped put this event together, our school for allowing this event to happen, Viva Palestine Malaysia for giving their merchandise for us to sell and Dr Shady Abu Jalala who is our contact in Gaza for assisting us and giving us this opportunity to help them.

Jazakumullahu khairan kathira. Wassalamu'alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

I would also like to welcome Hassan Radwan a former student from Palestine and he Graduated in the year 2012 from IIS Secondary.

The Palestinian BDS National Committee

 

Dear BDS supporter, 
 
A month has now passed since the end of Israel’s massacre of the besieged population of Gaza.
 
Gaza may no longer be on our TV screens, but the medieval siege remains in place and Israel appears more determined than ever to press on with the expansion of its illegal Israeli settlements.  
 
As civil society organisations in Gaza have said, there is now a battle underway to ensure that Israel is held to account. The outcome of this battle will determine whether Israel’s latest assault will be yet another stage in Israel’s incremental genocide” of Palestinians or the turning point that will bring an end to Israel’s status as an entity above the law. The outcome of this battle depends on you.
 
Palestinians everywhere were inspired by the international outpouring of support for Palestine during the Gaza massacre. Hundreds of thousands of people across the world joined theAugust 9 Day of Rage protests initiated by organisations in Gaza. Israeli ships were prevented from docking at Oakland and other ports in the US. Israeli arms factories were shut down and protests were held at hundreds of retailers across the world that sells Israeli goods.
 
And we know that BDS is working: Israeli exporters are complaining that it's becoming impossible to export produce to Israel. Big companies like G4S and Veolia are scaling back their involvement in Israeli crimes. Latin American governments responded to public pressure by withdrawing their ambassadors to Israel.
 
What happens next depends on how strong we can build the movement. Get involved with the BDS movement today:

KL Palestine Film Festival (KLPFF 2014)

 KLPFF2014 is the 3rd and so far the best KLPFF that VPM has hosted. This time, the film festival expanded to include a charity bazaar, a photo exhibition, a book launch, even a cooking demo and we brought in 4 very good speakers:

  • Laila El-Haddad, author of Gaza Mom and co-author of The Gaza Kitchen: A Palestinian Culinary Journey, is a political analyst and social activist.
  • Yasmine Perni, producer of The Stones cry Out
  • Seba Asmaa El Mourabiti, an Algerian-Belgian photographer to showcase her photo exhibition on female Palestinian prisoners entitled, ‘A Suspended Life’
  • Sameeha Elwan, a contributor to the book, ‘Remember Us’

Each of the film screenings were to full houses and there was a steady stream of people in and out of the charity bazaar throughout the two days. The speakers attracted a crowd and what they had to say was eye opening for many.

VPM is particularly pleased with the response and interest form the non-Muslim crowd because our main objective for the KLPFF has always been to spread awareness to highlight the fact that the Palestinian issue is a humanitarian issue and not a religious one.

The film, ‘The Stones Cry Out’ about Palestinian Christians was popular with the Christians and as we had Yasmin, the producer of the film, she conducted very good and informative Q&A sessions about the subject matter of the film. In order to cover another aspect of the Palestinian crisis, we chose the film, ‘A World Not Ours’ as the premiere to highlight what it is like for Palestinians living in the refugee camps; for some, this film might have caused uneasiness but the film portrayed the reality and highlighted the hopelessness of the Palestinian refugees.

VPM Song

Written, composed and arranged by prominent artistes but more importantly by those who share the passion for a free Palestine.

The video composition took longer than expected as the editor had to take multiple breaks as it was too much for him, emotionally. One of the girls in the video look exactly like a daughter of his.

'I cry and bleed inside whenever I hear the song. The tears of the dead child remains forever etched in our memories and God willing, inspire us to do more to end the occupation and free Palestine!'

REMEMBER US - Book Launch

The book, ‘Remember Us’ is a compilation of stories, narratives, poems by young Palestinians writers, edited by our own VPM members, Dr Husna and Dr Zabrina. The book was officially launched by YBhg Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir on 6 September 2014 in conjunction with the KL-Palestine Film Festival 2014 at Publika, Kuala Lumpur.

Continuing Appeal

SaveTheChildrenOfGaza ePoster 060814a

We have so far sent USD 175,000 to Gaza for food and medical relief. We have funded amongst others, water in tankers to UN schools, hot meals for iftar and suhoor, diapers, baby milk, mattresses, blankets and truck load of medical supplies via Arab Medical Union and now, we are in the process of buying 4 ambulances. 

Our strength is that we respond quickly and we give food and water when the big NGOs hadn't moved in yet and now we are moving towards bigger things as big as NGOS like Red Cross have stepped in.

Our partners Doctors World Wide (DWW) Turkey in collaboration with the MOH Turkey are enroute to Gaza via Tel Aviv.

Our FiMA think tank member & CEO of DWW Dr. Kerem informs us that he and Prof. Orhan also from DWWT are at the airport on their way to Gaza via Tel Aviv. They are boarding  an air ambulance of MOH of Turkey.

This is our third FIMA Medical mission in partnership with our associates. The first being 8 Sudanese and second 5 Palestinian doctors.

The following have been lined up for upcoming missions. They will spend 10-14 days in Gaza in sequence. Thus Gaza will have a continuos presence of our best FIMA doctors.

1 Arab Med Union AMU

3 Saudi team
4 Pakistan IMA
5 IMA Malaysia
6 IMA Bangladesh

12 August 2014Dr Kerem DWW Turkey reports from air ambulance airlifting injured patients "Yesterday we sent 4 heavy cases, today we are trying to send 8 more. We are awaiting for Palestinian authority in West Bank to issue them passports. We are still waiting for 88 emergency patient's official travel documents from PA in West Bank.

The wounded children in picture above are in A Quds awaiting transfer.
Dr Kerem adds "Our Minister of Foreign Affairs is calling up Abbas to  speed up the process"
Attached an article in Turkish paper Daily Sabah on cooperation between DWW and FIMA:

14 August 2014 - 29 wounded Gazans now being transferred via Erez Checkpoint to Ben Gurion Airport.

Pictures attached. Imagine only a 4 member team of DWW & MOH Turkey doing an awesome & marvelous job.

I have my misgivings of big number teams entering Gaza. In our FIMA plan of action at most 5-10 surgeons are deployed at any one time. But ensuring a team always present in Gaza.

A 65 member team is undoubtedly a logistic nightmare for food stricken and shelter deprived Gaza. Besides if bombing resumes Gazans would sacrifice their own lives to shelter the relief team members - the Gaza hospitality is unparalleled despite their poor circumstances. We should not further burden our Gazan hosts.

Till time of reporting Malaysian team yet to receive clearance from
Egyptian authorities. Team Malaysia has been told to downsize from 65 to 20!

Many patients could not get proper medical treatment because of the lack of medical devices and consumables like orthopedic fixators.

 VPM.Med.Truck1 VPM.Med.Truck3

6 trucks funded by the AMU/FIMA initiative entered Gaza. It was filled with medical & surgical supplies worth $200K. 20 Islamic Medical Associations, charity & relief NGOs from Egypt, Malaysia, USA, Turkey, Pakistan, New Zealand, Qatar, South Africa, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia contributed to this initiative since the entry of the first convoy on 12 July 2014.

This is the 4th from the AMU/FIMA convoy to enter Gaza.
Four ambulances have been donated to the MOH Gaza. 4 have been cleared by the Egyptian authorities and 12 are awaiting intelligence clearance. It is a laborious process where many other NGOs have failed and joined our AMU/FIMA initiative!

This is the blessing of team work & international collaboration.

PEACEFUL RALLY

BREAKING NEWS

'SAVE THE CHILDREN OF GAZA'

Peaceful Rally

Saturday 2nd August 2014
3 - 4.30pm
Dataran Merdeka
Organized by Viva Palestina Malaysia and Aqsa Syarif

The situation in Gaza worsens by the day.

The Israeli Occupying Forces (IOF) has been brutal and unrelenting in their bombings. Grim and gruesome pictures of the dead, wounded, maimed and disfigured flood the media daily. Innocent women and children cut down mercilessly – at the playground, on the beach, at the market, hospitals, schools, in their homes and while cuddled in each others’ arms, seeking safety. But even the Secretary General of the UN admits, “no place is safe in Gaza.”

The world is outraged at this blatant violation of human rights and shocked into action. Thousands continue to fill the streets of London, Washington, Auckland, Sydney, The Hague, Paris, New York, Mumbai, Amsterdam, Durban, Toronto, Singapore and more. Their demand – Stop the Massacre and Free Palestine.

Civil societies from every country and faith are standing in solidarity with the Palestinians.

This is the new super power. PEOPLE POWER.

Fellow Malaysians! Let us demonstrate our nation’s condemnation of the genocide in Gaza. Express our outrage at the holocaust unfolding before our very eyes.

Join our peaceful rally this Saturday.

We call on Malaysians and everyone else, from all walks of life, race, culture, religion and politics to unite and show

“WE CARE”
