Online Gaza Protest Linked To Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood


The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood website is reporting on a Facebook/Twitter action scheduled for today to protest Israeli policy in Gaza. According to the report:

Tuesday, March 9 activists will demonstrate Arab Unity and support with the resilience of the Palestinian Gazans by changing their profile photo. The group will be celebrating the steadfastness of the Gazan people where they have been under economic and political blockade entering its 1000th day without bowing to the U.S.-Israeli domination. Egyptian bloggers and activists regard March 9, as an “electronic day” against the siege revealing the Palestinian steadfastness and highlighting that those who struggle to regain their right inevitably will attain it even if it takes a long time. The Internet activists vowed to celebrate Gaza’s resilience and steadfastness through the electronic websites’ Blogs Twitter and Facebook to be a blogging day in which they refuse to whitewash the siege of Gaza and lift harsh and humiliating conditions of Gazans have been trapped for 1000 days. Activists also launched a new group presenting the history of the Israeli siege over the Gaza Strip over the past 1000 days displaying many audio and/ video clips covering the Palestinian tragedy especially during the recent Israeli war on Gaza last year. The group called itself “One Thousand Days… GAZA under Siege,” the number of participants who have reached more than 4000, stressed that Gaza and the West Bank are two areas under the one Palestinian State. They celebrate the steadfastness of the people of Gaza and will not forget the Israeli’s attempts at Judaizing Al-Aqsa Mosque.

The group’s Facebook page provides a contact email which in turn appears to belong to an individual known as Mosab Ragab (aka Abo Osma) whose own Facebook page lists two websites under his contact information that are operated by the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. Mr Ragab also lists his Political Views as “Muslim Brotherhood.”

An earlier post discussed a Facebook discussion forum launched in 2008 by the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.
