On Monday, the Jewish entity faced the “March of Return” in Gaza on the 70th anniversary of the Nakba with a massacre, in which dozens were martyred and thousands were wounded. At least 59 people, including seven children, were killed and more than 2,700 were injured, including 100 seriously wounded.
This massacre comes amidst the silence of the rulers, especially the neighboring rulers, and their reluctance to make the slightest real movement for the support of the Muslims and the feeble ones. Their weak positions converged between denouncing and condemnation like the rulers of Qatar and Jordan, calling for an Islamic summit in Turkey and calling for an emergency meeting for the Security Council like the rulers of Kuwait, whereas, the President of the Palestinian Authority, Abbas, announced the lowering of flags for three days to mourn the souls of the martyrs, and stressed adherence to what he called peaceful struggle until “victory!” of establishment of the state with Jerusalem (Al-Quds) as its capital. As for the rulers of Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arab and Muslim rulers, we did not see a single one of them, or hear from them the slightest sound!!
Thus, as with every occasion, the Muslims and people of Palestine reveal their willingness to sacrifice with their bare chests, their resolution and courage against the occupation and their ability to put effort and give for Palestine and their causes. Meanwhile the rulers reveal their betrayal and abandonment and conspiracies against Palestine and its people; for seven weeks, the rulers have been watching the people of Gaza being killed and slaughtered by Jews and that they are on the verge of an imminent massacre, but they suffice themselves with watching the events and disregard them.
Instead of mobilizing their armies to liberate Palestine from the abomination of the Jews and supporting the people of Gaza and Palestine, since they are able to do so, the rulers choose to only denounce or condemn or call for the intervention of the colonial bodies lurking Muslims and their causes evil, or convey messages of threat to Gaza as the rulers of Egypt. Or as Erdogan, who claims love and connection to Palestine, has called for an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation on Friday to be a meeting of empty letters and slogans and deceptive misleading slogans without resulting in a real movement to support Palestine and its people!
The Muslim rulers – Arabs or non-Arabs, have all the meager options open, but the real options that lead to the aid of Palestine and its people, like the mobilising of armies, are not accessible, which confirms their conspiracies against Palestine, especially as they renew on every occasion their suspected request for international protection of UN forces to be an additional occupation of Palestine in addition to the occupation of Jews!
The appeals of the President of the Palestinian Authority to the international community to provide international protection to the people of Palestine is a betrayal that adds to his series of betrayals to the cause, because it is an invitation of settling the occupying entity in most of the Blessed Land and submit the rest of the land under international occupation, i.e. turning the Jewish occupation into international occupation!
The earnest and effective work for liberating Palestine lies in returning the issue to the Muslim Ummah and not to the international community. Palestine and its people need the armies of the Ummah to move immediately to liberate Palestine and to stop the massacres of Jews in the Blessed Land of Palestine and to remove their entity from its roots and rid the country and the people of their evils. The ones preventing this are the criminal rulers who protect the Jews and provide them with opportunities for arrogance, commit massacres, and desecration of the Aqsa Mosque, and slaughtering the people of Palestine and continuing their occupation to the Masra (place of Isra’) of the Messenger of Allah (saw). The people of Palestine and all Muslims must raise their appeal to the armies of the Ummah to move towards performing their duty towards Palestine and its people, and to implement the Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate) on the method of the Prophet, which liberates the lands and gives the victory to the people. And our confidence in Allah (swt) is great that He (swt) will expand the hearts of good men from the Ummah of Muhammad (saw), restoring its dignity and honor and liberate its Aqsa to achieve the promise of Allah (swt) and the glad-tiding of His generous Messenger.
