On June 30, 2006 a Muslim American Society Press Release reported, "Responding to the recent Israeli military incursion in Gaza and looming humanitarian crisis resulting from aid cuts to the Palestinian people, MAS Freedom Foundation calls upon all people of conscience to join them in 'Justice for Palestine' rallies to be held throughout the United States. The rallies are being held to heighten American public awareness of the political and humanitarian plight of the Palestinian people and the need for peace and stability in the region. The rallies will also serve as opportunities to educate the American public about how the United States' one-sided foreign policy in favor of Israel is an impediment to peace in the Middle East and not in the best interests of the American people. MAS Freedom will hold a major rally on Thursday, July 6th at 4:30 pm in front of the Israeli Embassy at 3514 International Drive NW (between Connecticut Avenue and Reno Road, Washington, DC)."
