Respected Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner and Brisbane City Councillors.

The Queensland Muslims Inc. unequivocally condemn any act of violence targeting civilians or any actions that violate the principles of international law.

The most recent events that have transpired in Palestine and Israel are a result of more than 75 years of oppression, colonisation, exploitation, and expulsion of Palestinians from their homeland. The world has remained silent and thereby encouraged the Israeli regime to continue and expand its illegal occupation. Countless UN resolutions bear testimony to this fact.

We as residents of Brisbane express our utter dismay and disappointment at your decision to light up our citys iconic places with Israeli flag colors. This decision by the council makes us
complicit in the genocide that is now unfolding on the people of Gaza and we are giving open support to the Israeli regime to continue with its inhumane treatment of the Palestinians. It has deeply impacted our community in Brisbane.

We ask you to not take sides but to be fair and just in your decision-making processes with regards to this historic issue.
