The Issue of Camps and Diaspora at the table of Major Countries… and the Implementation is Local!

On Thursday 25/10/2018, clashes broke out and continue in the camp of Mieh Mieh east of Sidon, between the so-called Palestinian National Security Agency of the Palestinian Authority and Ansar Allah associated and supported by what is known as the axis of resistance and opposition! They used light and medium weapons and rocket-propelled grenades against the backdrop of the competition for the control of the Mieh Mieh camp by one of the two conflicting parties. Each claiming their concern for the camp and its people and its cause!!! This “care” which has become consistent with futile battles because of the lack of control over weapons in the Palestinian camps, the poor care of the Lebanese state and its focus only on security. The events of Ein el-Hilweh camp, and what is known as Al-Tira are not far from us, which causes every time the loss of innocent lives, and shedding of sacred blood and the destruction of homes of those “secure”, making people leave the camps and run for their lives to neighboring areas and even to immigrate to Europe in a striking way. It was even said that for the first time since Ein el-Hilweh camp’s presence there were about 60 empty houses left behind by people in a “semi-organized” migration.

To begin with, we say: it is clear that the issue of liquidating the Palestinian camps and moving forward with the plan to end the issue known as “the return of the refugees”, which is one of the unresolved issues, as the negotiators claim. The unresolved issue are: the issue of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) and the issue of the return of the refugees. Trump’s insolence and arrogance made him move things forward when he declared Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the capital of the Jewish entity occupying Palestine, leaving only the issue of refugees in camps in the diaspora areas, especially Lebanon.  These issues have been resolved, in the heading of an article in Al Hayat Newspaper in 2014, as was stated in the leaflet by Hizb ut Tahrir/Wilayah of Lebanon on 15/1/2016, the newspaper quoted Yasser Abed Rabbo’s description of the outcome of the agreement: “A Jewish state, a capital in a part of Al-Quds (Jerusalem), and the non-return of refugees”! Therefore, what is happening is the process of production that is now placed on a hot plate, in conjunction with what has become known as the reduction of UNRWA services, which increased since 2016 until today.

Then there are two messages:

First: For the sinful combatants and their leadership, the Ummah, including the people of Palestine, will not forget and will record your active contribution to the “successful” production of this matter, signed by your bullets, which you kill by one another, and the unrightfully unjust bloodshed, and by terrorizing people, pushing them to re-migrate. The history of this Ummah will record that you were small tools in the international resolutions to liquidate one of the most important issues of Muslims, usurped Palestine.  If you claim that you are not able to fight the international solutions, then do not make these solutions pass over the dead body parts of the sons of Palestine in Lebanon and with their blood, otherwise step aside and let the people choose who rightfully represents and look after them, from their sincere sons which the Ummah will not be devoid of … You, however small is your authority, are like the rulers in the Muslim lands, whom the Ummah curse day and night for not looking after it, and who spread the killing, displacement and loss, May Allah make them lost.

Secondly, the Lebanese state and its institutions and organs, did not take its role as a care taker of the people of Palestine in Lebanon, but rather it dealt with them as a security concern, and the way it solved their issues was with adding more restriction and tightening; so it built walls around the camps, making them closed-off areas, and it wanted to call it “the love wall”, what stifling love wall is this? But would it not have been better if these camps were – if they must be, with the claim that the people of Palestine would not forget their occupied country! – open neighbourhoods in your cities, benefiting from the energies of their youth and abilities and potential knowledge known to everyone, and the people would be under the natural protection and care of the state, and have the basic rights to ensure the dignity of living for those who are in this country even before many of its own sons! So that they do not have to migrate in search of a safe and secure life in the Western displacement areas. Isn’t this better? Further tightening means more tragic situations, more oppression that leads to what we have seen and see today from the destruction and fighting.

But what the Lebanese state is doing in this regard proves its involvement and its institutions and agencies in imposing the unjust international solutions and stabilizing the displacement of the people of Palestine to “exile” areas far from the Muslim countries in the context of the international settlement … in addition to an abhorrent racism rooted in the hearts of Lebanon’s rulers, or else what is the reason for the good treatment with those who came to Lebanon from non-Muslims, such as Armenians who have full rights, and among them are deputies and ministers, as well as Christians from the people of Palestine, Syria and Iraq! But the exact opposite is seen with the Muslims of the people of Palestine, shouldn’t this be questioned?!!!

In conclusion, the Islamic Ummah, including the people of Palestine, are going through the painful labour to give birth to the guided and just entity, an Islamic state, a Khilafah Rashida (guided Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood. All that is happening today and what the Ummah experienced is a confirmation of the words of Allah (swt): وَلِيُمَحِّصَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَيَمْحَقَ الْكَافِرِينَ “And that Allah may purify the believers [through trials] and destroy the disbelievers” [Al-Imran: 141] And His saying (swt): لِيَمِيزَ اللَّهُ الْخَبِيثَ مِنَ الطَّيِّبِ وَيَجْعَلَ الْخَبِيثَ بَعْضَهُ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ فَيَرْكُمَهُ جَمِيعاً فَيَجْعَلَهُ فِي جَهَنَّمَ أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْخَاسِرُونَ [This is] so that Allah may distinguish the wicked from the good and place the wicked some of them upon others and heap them all together and put them into Hell. It is those who are the losers” [Al-Anfal: 37]

And soon, Allah willing, the world will see the elevated treatment of the citizens by the Islamic state, the Khilafah Rashida (guided) Caliphate, without discrimination, in accordance with the divine guidance of viewing the people as human beings. وَلَقَدْ كَرَّمْنَا بَنِي آدَمَ And We have certainly honored the children of Adam” [Al-Isra’: 70]

Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent.
