CUFI has unearthed footage of IHRC head, Massoud Shadjareh, appearing to urge people in to wage “Jihad in Palestine” like they do in Syria.
Massoud Shadjareh is the head of the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) which heads up the Al-Quds march each year in the UK, an event that includes the waving of thousands of Hezbollah flags on the streets of London.
Shadjareh said, “You know people are rushing in large numbers from Britain, from Europe, from all around the world, from Arab countries to go and do Jihad in Syria. What about Jihad in Palestine? Why not even single one of them have gone to fight for Palestine for over 65 years.”

“Why is it that they have to wait for the [inaudible] Obama to declare Jihad before they go for Jihad? We want people to support the oppressed and stand up what is just and that’s get rid of the greatest oppressors in the region the Zionists then all our other problems will be resolved one by one.”
Shadjareh made his comments outside the US Embassy in London in 2013. Before he made these comments he said the war in Syria was created to distract Muslims from the real conflict in the Middle East, the one between Israel and the Palestinians.
There is currently a debate in the UK as to whether British Jihadis should be allowed back into the country after going to Syria. The kind of rhetoric above is worrying if it is indeed advocating people in Britain to go to “Palestine” and wage Jihad against Israelis.
Last week CUFI UK launched Operation Mordecai which includes highlighting Iran’s influence in Britain.
The IHRC is one of the main organisers of the Al Quds March in London, which was established by Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei and sees thousands of anti-Israel protesters on the streets of London waving the flags of Hezbollah; Iran’s terrorist proxy in Lebanon.
