While the bulk of the Israeli government's animosity is reserved for indigenous Palestinians, in recent years a group of new immigrants has also encountered high levels of hostility.

A year ago today, Hussein Ahmed Saleh Abu Bakr, a labourer, was travelling to work in Al-Bayda, central Yemen, with 11 colleagues including family members when a drone struck the car. When the attack was over, Hussein emerged from where he had taken cover to look for the other passengers and found his father, 65, slumped in the road with shrapnel injuries to his head and chest. The bodies of the other passengers were scattered around the area, with some injuries so severe, Hussein was only able to identify them from their clothing. Four of the passengers were killed: Sanad Nasser Hussein Al-Khushm, Abdullah Nasser Abu Bakr Al-Khushm, Yasser Ali Abed Rabbo Al-Azzani and Ahmed Saleh Abu Bakr.

The demonstration, in solidarity with Ahwazi Arabs living under brutal and oppressive Iranian occupation, condemned the persistent systemic injustice against them in the south and south-west of Iran.

For more than three decades, I have had the privilege of communicating with numerous Islamic parties around the world by virtue of my work. I connected with groups and movements from Nigeria to Sweden; Malaysia and Indonesia to Morocco; and from America and Britain to India. I often wondered what the common thread between these groups was during my meetings with them. Was it, perhaps, how to translate Islamic values and principles in today's world?
