Canceling Agreements and Cutting off Relations with the Jewish Entity, not just the Gas Agreement is the Discourse that must be Directed and Demanded by the Regime in Jordan

Despite all the efforts of the ruling regimes in the Muslim countries to normalize and establish intimate relations, and conclude agreements that end the state of war with the usurper enemy, the Jewish entity, the state of hostility persists between Muslims and this monstrous entity. This is attested by the popular protests and events on every occasion in which this entity practices its blatant aggression against the people of Palestine or the people of Jordan, and the acceptance of this regime to continue submission and subservience through the humiliating agreements it held with the occupying enemy. The movements that took place against the leasing of Baqoura and Al-Ghamr, and against the gas agreement that still exists, attest to the state of dichotomy and separation between the regime in Jordan and the Ummah, as well as it shows the goodness in this Ummah through which the sons of this Ummah tried to prevent the gas pipeline in their territory in rejection of this agreement with the enemy…

The agreement of shame and disgrace in Wadi Araba, which was concluded by the regime in Jordan with the Jewish entity, was the door used by the regime to justify the conclusion of various agreements through which the Jewish entity is enabled in terms of security and economy, such as the Bahrain Canal Convention, the common free zones and the railway, and not far away, the gas agreement, which was concluded despite its rejection by all the activities and movements in Jordan; these were all the products of Wadi Araba. In an article by the Government Spokesperson Jumana Ghunaimat, when she was outside the government on 9/11/2014, she said: “The government forgets that the occupier did not respect the previous agreements which were more important to him than the gas, chiefly the Wadi Araba agreement, who said that (Israel), which evades the Covenants and does not respect agreements will adhere to the gas agreement that connects Jordan’s economy strategically with the enemy.” So, has the situation changed for the spokesperson to change her speech now after entering the government?!

The people of Jordan and experts have questioned the economic feasibility of the Convention on the importation of the looted and plundered gas from Palestine and its usefulness to the people of Jordan, and they mentioned many and varied alternatives to Jordan’s need for energy and with the lowest cost for the production of electrical energy, including solar energy, activating the gas-rich Risha field, utilization of oil shale which is abundant and puts Jordan in the highest global reserves, and the liquefied gas port. The last alternative was to return to import from Egypt, whose new discoveries reached six billion cubic feet per day this year. All these alternatives were tossed at the wall by the regime and it went on indifferent to the voice of the Ummah which rejects the Jewish entity.

This is because the regime is concerned with the function of empowering this entity and keeping Jordan weak, so that it is not demanded of its dues and duties, towards its enemy the enemies of the Ummah. Thus, the 10 billion-dollar gas deal is to enable the Jews to invest in the new Leviathan field and prepare it for export, as well as the strategic dimension of making Jordan hostage to this monstrous entity. And most importantly, the prohibition of such agreements with an occupying enemy in terms of legitimacy, in addition to the persistence in discrediting the dignity of the Ummah and the people of Jordan.

The Issue of Palestine is the issue of a nation whose blessed land is being occupied. It must be viewed from a special Islamic point of view based on the Aqeedah and the Shari’i rules which emanate from it. It is an Islamic land for Muslims, and it is where Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Masra of Messenger of Allah ﷺ, is found. It is occupied by the Jews who established their foundling entity, with the help of the Kaffir Western created Arab regimes. Its liberation cannot be by reconciliation, humiliation, normalization and protection of the Jewish entity, and its empowering over the country and the people and harnessing the country’s wealth for the sake of its survival; but rather by working to eradicate it from its root. This is the work that the Ummah yearns for in its entirety; jihad for the sake of Allah and behind it its armies, which are shackled and exploited by the regimes to protect them. Nothing less than demanding the regime to cancel the Wadi Araba agreement and it’s like, and severing ties for any justification for more humiliating agreements, so that the natural hostility to the Jewish entity is restored until the material empowerment to liberate all of the occupied territories is achieved. The regime is not harmed by the cancellation of the gas agreement, and it may do it, as it did with ending the leasing of Baqoura and Al-Ghamr, in search for transient popular satisfaction, which the Ummah realize that it was intended to sow ash in the eyes. The Ummah that has become aware that there is no way with the Jewish entity except by being in a state of war with it, and that there is no way to do that except by it (the Ummah) returning to resume its Islamic way of life by the establishment of the Khilafah Rashida (righteous Caliphate) state on the method of the Prophethood, in which the Caliph takes care of the Ummah with the rules of Islam, preserves the country and people from the greed of its enemies, and leads the Ummah to eliminate the monstrous Jewish entity.

أَفَحُكْمَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ يَبْغُونَ وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ مِنَ اللّهِ حُكْماً لِّقَوْمٍ يُوقِنُونَ

“Do they then seek after a judgment of (the Days of) Ignorance? But who, for a people whose faith is assured, can give better judgment than Allah?”
