Call for a manifestation against Quds Day in Vienna

On 25/26 July, the so-called “Quds Day” will be marked yet another time in Vienna like in other cities. Introduced in 1979 after the “Islamic Revolution” in Iran by Ayathollah Khomeini, the “Day for the liberation of Jerusalem from Zionist occupation” – i.e. the propaganda event for the destruction of Israel – is to be held annually after the end of Ramadan. A gender-segregated demonstration led by Mullahs will head this call in Vienna, too. At this occasion, the flag of the organization responsible for numerous deadly terror attacks worldwide especially against Jews will be carried: the flag of Hezbollah.

Under the cover of a “peaceful use” of nuclear energy, Teheran has been busy to build the nuclear bomb which is to seal the fate of Israel. The European states – notably Austria – have been the ones whose political cooperation for the past 30 years and whose continued trade with the Iranian regime put the Ayathollahs into the very position where they could carry on with their nuclear program, their propaganda and their oppression of the Iranian people.

The aggressions of the Iranian regime, which has been hosting conferences for Holocaust denial and which is present in Vienna not only with its embassy, but also with the embassy’s “cultural department” in Schottenfeldgasse and the Imam Ali Mosque in Mollardgasse, are not directed exclusively against the Jewish state. Subject to its bloody terror are also those Iranians who wish to evade the regimentation of their lives by the regime – be it political activists, unionists, homosexuals, religious minorities or just simply youth who want to live their lives in self-determination and without the Sharia’s constant coercion.

In 2009, the accumulated anger against this oppression of individual happiness erupted in mass protests against the regime. Millions of people brought the “Islamic Republic” to the brink of defeat. They embarrassed the state-organized hatred of Israel by replacing the Islamist slogans for the annihilation of Israel with dissident slogans like “Putin, Chávez, Nasrallah, you are the real enemies of Iran” and “Neither Gaza (i.e. Hamas) nor Lebanon (i.e. Hezbollah), our lives for Iran”; slogans like “Marg bar jomhuriye eslami” (“Down with the Islamist Republic!”) were aimed directly against the regime. It was the silence of the West and the resulting betrayal of the Iranian freedom movement, amongst other factors, that helped the dictatorship of Ayathollahs survive these protests.

In addition to the Revolutionary Guards, Hezbollah also participated significantly in the murderous counter-insurgency operations. The yellow-green flag of the “Party of God” is carried at the annual Quds Day rallies in Austria as well. Hezbollah was founded with massive support from Iran in the 1980ies to serve as an offshoot of the “Islamic Revolution” in Lebanon, and receives financial funding by the regime in Teheran until this day. Even after the terrorist attack in Burgas (Bulgaria) in 2012, where five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver were murdered, the EU has not been able to bring itself to blacklisting Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

On 26 July, we will demonstrate against the Islamist propaganda rally in solidarity with those revolting in Iran and in the hope that the graveyard silence sustained by executions, torture and “virtue terror” will end soon. We demand:

No Quds Day in Vienna and elsewhere!

Solidarity with the Iranian freedom movement and the secular opposition in Iran and in exile!

Solidarity with Israel! Against all forms of anti-Semitism!

Entire Hezbollah on the EU terror list! For tougher and consistent sanctions against the Iranian regime!

No business relations with anti-Semitic regimes and movements!
