The Al-Quds Day rally held in downtown Washington, D.C. on September 18, 2009 featured speakers invoking hate speech and calling for the destruction of the State of Israel, including conspiracy theorist Mauri Saalakhan and terror supporter Afeef Khan. Flags of Hizballah, a tapestry with the image of Hassan Nasrallah and a flag with a swastika were on display.
Audience members held posters with radical slogans, including "Gaza = Auschwitz" and "Zionism benefited the most from 9/11". Following the rally, participants marched down Embassy Row repeating various chants shouted on a louder speaker, including: "Zionists, Hizballah is coming for you," "Israelis committing genocide, U.S. helping on the side" and "Cancer of the Middle East, Israel must not exist." The rally was organized by Faheem Darab, an employee of the Fairfax County (VA) Department of Zoning and Planning.
Transcript (in order by clip):
"And this is what I mean. That if we want a positive, a secure and a just future for the Palestinians and in fact for all the people of the Middle East and for all the people of North Africa, we cannot get away from the fact that the solution begins with the complete destruction, the annihilation, and the utter dismemberment of the State of Israel."
"Were it not for the state, there would be no lobbies all around the world sending money and arms to the State of Israel. Were it not for the state, all of these resources which are marshaled around the world to contribute to the injustice which comes out of that little country, that would not be possible. And so if you dismember the state, you dismember the world wide drug trade, the world wide trafficking of women, the world wide insecurity, the world wide financial crisis."
"And that the head politician on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue - who of us has the courage to say to this politician that are you a regular house negro or are you the quintessential house negro? Who of us has the courage when we couch our presentation in suggesting that the problem can be solved by the dismemberment of the State of Israel and the support that state receives from the United States?"

Regarding "Zionists, Hizballah is coming for you"

This is the type of hate that we can do without from the so-called representatives of the muslim community in the United States. I notice there are no Israelis out there spewing hate against the so-called Palestinians ("Philistines" in arabic) although history proves that today's "Palestinians" were yester year's Jordanians, Iraqis, and bedouins.
Instead this Afeef Kahn insists that Israel is the cause of all the world's ills including drug trafficking despite the fact that the muslims of Afghanistan are the world's most prolific peddlers of opium; despite that fact that the "Palestinians" were the world's first hijackers of commercial airlines; despite the fact the so-called Palestinians were the first to infiltrate the Olympics and murder athletes; despite the fact that it was "Palestinians" who danced in the streets and exchanged presents at the news of 9/11! Never mind the fact that it is muslims who contribute to the world's instability by blowing up trains and buses in Spain and London.
Instead of accusing the only democracy in the Middle East for their woes they should look to their own Arab leaders who keep the Palestinians in refuge camps to make a political statement. When Kuwait expelled all its jews during the war of 1948, Israel absorbed every one of those jewish refugees. Why did not the Arabs absorb their arabs refugees after they fled Israel at the urginig of their muslim leaders? Why is it that, 50 years later they have yet to give these arab refugee citizenship in their own countries they way Israel granted citizenship to the arabs who chose to stay? Instead of listening to these proselytes, it would do well to consult history to learn the truth.
