Current situation in Gaza 'apocalyptic', says Mapim CEO

KAJANG: Malaysia Consultative Council of Islamic Organisation (Mapim) chief executive officer Dr Ahmad Sani Abdul Alim Araby is adamant in continuing MAPIM’s humanitarian mission for Palestinians in Gaza, even in the face of attacks conducted by the Zionist regime that he personally said was the worst he has ever witnessed.

Ahmad Sani said that there has been so much death and destruction in Gaza that it could only be described as apocalyptic due to Israeli attacks, conducted with blatant disregard of resolutions by the United Nations.

"They don’t care about the resolutions and what really makes us frustrated is when schools with the UN emblem are also bombed. Hospitals built by other countries like Qatar and Indonesia are also bombed and we seem to be out of options to do something,” he told Bernama at Wisma MAPIM here today.

He added that almost 11,000 people have been killed and around 4,000 of them are children, in the 35 days of Israeli attacks.

Ahmad Sani then said that Mapim remains committed to helping the Palestinians, adding that they have built nine mosques and supplied 10 ambulances to Gaza so far, but two of those mosques were destroyed and three ambulances are unaccounted for due to the attacks.

Mapim also intends to organise the Malaysian Artists to Defend Palestine Gathering on Dec 2 in Shah Alam Selangor, he said.

"The gathering will call for an immediate stop to the war against Palestine and we invite artists with big followings to join us as we need them, with their sincerity, to be a magnet and deliver the message to their followers,” Ahmad Sani said.

The Mapim is also seeking the cooperation of Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari to jointly organise the gathering so that it will have a greater response.

Mapim will launch the Palestine Emergency Fund to help Palestinians in Gaza in conjunction with the gathering, he added. - Bernama
