Who will stand for the Palestinians

Written by Abu Jabir Penabdul

Who will stand for the Palestinians?

I begin with the Name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

Who will speak and stand for the oppressed palestinians? All I see is a world suffering from selective Alzheimer. Innocent Palestinians could be killed every day for 365 days and the world could conveniently turn a blind eye to their plights.

That the State of Palestine is still in existence after being subjected to perpetual and sustained persecution and physical and psychological terror by Israel for many decades, qualifies them to be the most resilient and powerful nation.

The unjust world leaders are rallying behind Ukraine because they felt it has been oppressed by Russia. Similar scenario has been playing out in the State of Palestine; who has been in a perpetual state of oppression by Israel, yet same world leaders are against Palestine, the oppressed. 

The world watched and perhaps cheered the state of Israel unleashing terror on innocent palestinians for many decades and said nothing in the defence of the oppressed. Suddenly, they now have a voice because they feel it 's convenient for their narrative.

On one side, they offer their unconditional support for the oppressor (Israel) and on the other side they support the assumed oppressed (Ukraine).

The utter arrogance and lack of shame that some of the world leaders are displaying in their declaration of unapologetic support and solidarity for Israel against Palestine is enough to convince any right thinking individual that the global slogan of human rights is nothing but delusion.

Instead of the world leaders to sue for peace they are busy trying to offer more military aid to an already oppressive state. The illegal occupation of Palestine by the state of Israel that has become an entitlement is the biggest robbery of the last century.

They use their well-oiled Zionist media to paint the oppressed (Palestine) as the oppressor and the oppressor (Israel) as the oppressed. We have been given intellectual capacity by Allah hence, employ it in analyzing the world politics and know where you fit in. Do not be a blind follower nor a mental slave.

If the Muslim leaders and the world leaders inclined to justice do not come together to form a fraternity of conscience to stand for the oppressed Palestinians, then they have no right advocating for justice anywhere else. This is a global arena for them to demonstrate their love for humanity.

Allah has not made this world to be a place where absolute justice will be served. What has been happening in Palestine is enough to increase one’s faith in the Day of Judgment where absolute justice will be served. You think the oppressor will go without justice?
