World standing idle as Palestine suffers

World standing idle as Palestine suffers

“They will not fight you [even] together, except in fortified townships, or from behind walls. Strong is their fighting [spirit] amongst themselves: thou wouldst think they were united, but their hearts are divided: that is because they are a people devoid of wisdom.” Quran 59:14
Ever since Israel laid the cornerstone of its apartheid wall in 1994, setting the tone for its relations with the rest of the Arab and Islamic world, such words have haunted the Muslim community, as they carry within them foretold warnings of coming tribulations.
And indeed, much suffering has befallen Palestinians since Tel Aviv’s Zionists have moved forth their plan for total control over the region. Over the past 20 years, Palestine has been plundered by Israel, its rich arable lands confiscated, its water resources rerouted to benefit illegal settlers and its people treated as mere cattle awaiting slaughter.
The once proud land of Palestine has been crying bitter tears tainted with pain and sorrow as her children have been driven from their homes by Zion’s hordes and abandoned by the Islamic Ummah for too many chose to shamelessly turn away rather than face the discomfort of war. As the world fell prey to global powers’ agendas, as Muslims witnessed the inception of US President George W. Bush’s new world order, Palestine died a little more every day.
After decades of injustice, humiliation and bloodshed, the land of Palestine is but a shadow of its former self, a fractured country whose ever-shrinking borders will soon collapse on themselves to leave behind only the memory of what once was.
For all their millions, Muslims could not find strength in numbers to oppose but a handful. Betrayed from within, Muslims have looked upon the hills of al-Quds and watch in silence as our sacred land is being defiled by evil.
Just as a snake would coil around its victim, Israel’s wall of shame has slithered its way throughout Palestine, forever dividing communities, forever wrecking livelihoods and cutting out families from their loved ones, slowly suffocating an entire nation.
Intent on reducing Palestine to rubbles and assert its supremacy over Islam, Israel announced it wants its Separation Wall, its apartheid fence to act as the new border demarcation line. And while Palestinian authorities have decried such a project, calling on the international community to act a witness before such injustice and down-right pillaging, the world knows that neither salvation nor indeed justice will ever be given to Palestine, rather it would have to be taken.
While Palestinian authorities continue to beg for scraps, hoping to salvage a modicum of pride by retreating behind the 967 borders, Israel’s long-standing blood-hound Benjamin Netanyahu has categorically rejected such a proposal, stressing that it would not only make Israel “indefensible” but that it would also “fail to take into account the past 46 years demographic changes.” In essence, Netanyahu wishes for Palestinians to accommodate illegal Zionist settlers, based on the ill-conceived belief that they hold a claim onto the kingdom of Sulaiman. But if ever there was a claim to be made on the holy land of Palestine, such claim would have to be from God, as none but Him can ever have true ownership onto the world.
