Amid the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, global support for Palestinians has been evident. Rallies and marches advocating for a ceasefire and expressing solidarity with Palestine have taken place worldwide.
Following the October 7 attacks by Hamas, where civilians were indiscriminately killed and others taken hostage, continued responses from Israel have fueled these demonstrations.
Over the weekend, hundreds of thousands of people rallied across cities in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East to show support for Palestinians, as reported by Reuters.
Enes Kanter Freedom, who was effectively kicked out of the NBA in February of 2022 because of his strong vocal opinion on the treatment of Uyghur Muslims by communist China, took to X on Friday with questions for Palestinian supporters.
“To those raising Palestinian flags around the world; As a proud Muslim, I have an honest question!!!” Kanter Freedom posted.
“Where were you when ISIS was launched in the name of ‘Islam’, and beheaded tens of thousands of Arabs in Libya, Syria and Iraq?” Kanter Freedom asked. “Why didn’t you take it to the streets, raise their flags, condemn the terror or call for a ceasefire? Where were you in the last decade when Arab countries killed and starved out more than 400,000 Yemenis? I didn’t see any of you take it to the streets, raise the Yemeni flag, condemn the terror or call for a ceasefire? When millions of Arabs are slaughtered by other Arabs, you say absolutely nothing?”
Kanter Freedom asked why those raising Palestinian flags were “so silent then” yet “so loud now.”
“I’m a proud Muslim, and I stand with my Muslim brothers and sisters around the world,” the post added. “I’m praying for innocent people in Palestine everyday but your hypocrisy is killing me!!”
