They have been protecting such absurd and unrealistic demand of Israel state. On the other hand, the Palestinian people, living here since thousands of years in this holy city, have become refugees in their own motherland. From Hamas to PLO, Gaza to Ramallah, Palestinian people from all walks of life are now united against the aggression of Israel and moreover all Muslims from Morocco to Indonesia and even Muslims from every country raise their voice against Israel and their so-called implacable master.
After the declaration of President Donald Trump, the situation turned into a dramatic change. In OIC conference called by Erdoganwherein the presence of fifty Muslim countries’ leaders, he said that Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is a reward for Israeli ‘terror acts’. They also declared East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. After a longtime, all Muslim leaders have spoken in a united voice with their following people (as procession by mass Muslim shows that they are in huge number against Israeli aggression).
Why Palestinian people are world most deprived nation? Though Declaration by Donald Trump goes against east Jerusalem can it bring any positive result for Islam or Palestinians? In this situation can Muslim world take any audacious decision to bring the situation under control? Let us have a look at these issues with a little glance of the glorious historical attachment of Masjid-Al-Aqsa as well as recent historical conspiracy. Jerusalem is the third holy place of Islam, From Ibrahim (AS) to Isa (AS) many prophets came in this land. The miraculous journey from Makkah to Masjid-Al-Aqsa and ascension through the Heaven (Al Ma’araj) of Prophet Mohammad (SAW) and praying Salah with otherProphets indicate the importance of masjid-Al-Aqsa tothe Muslims. Masjid-Al-Aqsa was also the first Qibla of Islam.
The suffering of Palestinian people is one of the world largest man-made inhumane crises. In Jerusalem, Palestinian people have no right to vote and even they have to travel by Israeli passport. World Media have already disclosed their measurable life. Muslims are deprived of praying Salah from their first Qibla, They have to fight for praying Almighty Lord in the house of worship what is evil than it? Every Friday is the day of fight and fire between Israeli armed troops and empty-handed mass Muslim. Even children and women are not free from Israeli persecution in this holy land. They are tortured by Israeli Army in front of media.
Every day Israel hurts and even kills Muslims in broad daylight and even in the midnight. But in the era of Great Omar (RA), Islam conquered the Jerusalem by no bloodshed and also declared it as free so that anyone can perform religious or other activities. When crusaders won the Jerusalem they killed thousands of Muslims but When Salahuddin-Al-Ayyubi conquered again Jerusalem he also declared protection of human irrespective of age, religion, caste. Still Muslims think the same as Ahmed Yassin, the founder of Hamas Said “We do not fight because they are Jews rather e fight because they are occupiers.” Ahmad Yassin has gone but Palestinian people do not forget his teaching yet.These indicate people of Palestine are saved only under the Muslims and only they can make it free again from injustice or violence. On the other hand, Israel has not followed their treaty from previous as Allah said in Surah-Al-Anfal verse no fifty-Six “The ones with whom you made a treaty but then they break their pledge every time, and they do not fear Allah.” Muslim have always tried to follow the way of peace but they have not obeyed their treaty.
Former Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin Said “We fight therefore we are” in reply of his speech Sheikh Ahmad Yassin Said “Resistance in Palestine will continue until the final liberation of all Palestinian lands.” Some scholars think that there is a great historical connection of Trumps’ recognition as it is 100 years of another declaration which was declared by a British foreign minister who promised to provide a home for Jewish people in Palestine. This year Israel is also celebrating seventy years of its establishment as an illegal state. The odor Herzl is the first thinker of Jewish land on Palestine but other chose to establish the state in another area like Uganda, Australia or Argentina but after his death his thought was popularized among the Jewish over other opinions.
By this declaration, America has lost its position as the mediator of peace discussion. As they were biased as mediator it will make Muslim world free from bamboozling. United Nations and other powerful countries are also against the position of US declaration in case of Palestinian issue so here they are now marginalized. The Muslim world from each and every corner should cut off all kind of diplomatic relations as well as trade and other relationships with those barbaric occupiers so that they feel loneliness in the Middle East. We should also throw out Israeli brands and goods with their master America. The Muslim world should hold Tahzeeb andTamaddun of Islam. We must make an end of those tiny disagreements among Muslim countries and strengthen our unity because of our own good as Allah said in Quran “Indeed Allah loves those who fight for his cause in battle array as if they were a solid structure.” (61:4)
Muslim should give up all kind of tiny disagreement in the form of Shia and Sunni, Rich and poor, Arab and non-Arab, leftist and rightist, Arab and Kurdish. As Makkah and Medina is not the only concern of Arab in the same way Kudus is not the matter of Philistine but of world Muslim. If Palestinians become weak Muslim world should come for fight with them against Israel. We have to establish a “World Islamic Council” as Muslim world have no Khalifa who can call for fight against Israel.
A fund, where every Muslim of the world will donate to their Palestinian brothers, can be established for the Palestinian people, is badly needed for those suffered people. Conflict in Jerusalem is not recent occurrence but a historical truth that when Muslims are weak Jerusalem is conquered by Non-Muslims.Yasser Arafat, former leader of PLO said “The Palestinian people have no national identity. I, Yasser Arafat, man of destiny, will give them that identity through conflict with Israel.” Though world media have huge propaganda against Hamas, its popularity is increasing in Palestine as well as in the world. Hamas is now the popular group in Palestine as its activities have disseminated in every nook and corner in Palestine. Palestinian people have called for another Intifada for the independence of the Palestine. Some Middle-east scholars predict that this Intifada will be stronger than before. Israeli Jewish people fantasize to take control of whole Palestine but there conspiracy makes Muslims stronger and unites them, which reflects the speech of Allah “And the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners.” (3:54) n
