A Qur'anic Message from Sheikh Pallazi

I hope you will consider citing the following verse from the Qur'an as you confront your tormentors [who] ethnically cleansed [Jews] in Hevron last week:

"And when We [Allah] made a Covenant [Torah/Land/People] with you [Children of Israel, at Mount Sinai], We [Allah] said: 'You [Children of Israel] shall not shed your kinsmen's blood or turn them out of their dwellings' [Gush Katif/Homesh/Sa Nur/Amonah/Hevron]. To this you [Children of Israel] consented and bore witness [at Mount Sinai, where the Israelites said 'We will do and we will listen']. Yet there you were, slaying your own kinsfolk, and turning a number of them out of their dwellings, and helping each other against them with sin and aggression [the Israeli "government"], though had they come to you as captives, you would have ransomed them. Surely their expulsion was unlawful".

(Qur'an, The Cow, Sura 2:84-85)

Blessings to you from Sheikh Palazzi in Rome.
