"Even though it has been posted my name on the leaflet, but I have not felt contacted before, and I happen will be absent because I have to go to Kuningan.But I support the action even appealed to the community to support it as well," said Aher after lunch at Katein Gedung Sate on Thursday (20/7).
According to Aher, the issue of Palestine besides religious matters there is also issues of nationality which based on the 1945 Constitution the Palestine independence must be supported.
"Besides fraternal as fellow Muslims, it is important that we support and defend Palestine. Palestine is a participating country of the 1955 KAA which has not yet gained its full independence. In our Constitution, it is clear that we declare that we must eliminate all forms of colonialism in the world.
Saturday July 21, 2017 planned that various Islamic organizations will hold action with long march from West Java Pusdai on Jl. Diponegoro to Masjid Ukhuwah on Jl. Wastukencana, in supporting and defending the Palestinian people especially the people around Al Aqsa Mosque which until now still controlled by Israeli soldiers, so it can not be used to worship by Muslims there.
