More Absurdity: The Muslim World’s Continued Warmth toward Israel

Time for another quick round of how Arab and some Muslim World governments don’t really care about Palestine.

Their focus of course is economic benefit. While that is vital to any nation’s success, why not strengthen ties with the many Muslim countries around the world instead?

These decisions further legitimize the US’s own support of Israel.

Firstly is Egypt’s increasing steps to strengthen relations with Israel. This time it’s in the form of an airplane route, from Tel Aviv to Sharm e-Sheikh. Even the idea that the final agreement was made by Egypt and members of Shin Bet, the Israeli Security Service that has targeted and harmed so many Palestinians throughout the years, is shameful.

What’s perhaps even sadder about this is that in the case of Egypt, any economic benefit from ties with Israel probably will not be felt by the population at-large anyways.

Next up is Israeli president Herzog’s meeting with Erdogan in Turkey.

From Al-Jazeera:

“‘Appearing before cameras following the talks, Erdogan described Israeli president’s visit as ‘historic’ and ‘a turning point’ in Turkish-Israeli relations. He said Turkey was ready to cooperate with Israel in the energy sector, adding that the Turkish foreign and energy ministers would soon visit Israel for more talks on increased cooperation.”

The article also notes that Erdogan expressed his continued concern about Palestine and working towards a two-state solution:

“‘We expressed the importance we attach to reducing tensions in the region and preserving the vision of a two-state solution,’ Erdogan said. ‘I underlined the importance we attach to the historical status of Jerusalem and the preservation of the religious identity and sanctity of Masjid Aqsa,’ the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem’s historic Old City.”

This sounds too like working to maintain the status quo. Even with the clashes over al-Haram al-Sharif, no one denies that al-Aqsa is religiously important to Muslims. This idea of two-states has been tossed around for decades and has been supported by the decaying Palestinian Authority, who maintain control of some areas of the West Bank and have serious corruption and organizational problems.

So basically Erdogan gave some lip service to that.

Where does that leave us and all the civilians whose livelihood and lives are at stake?

only honor in Islam

There has always been absurdity with this sort of stuff. For example, Arab nationalism, Baathism, Palestinian communist groups, etc.

Tariq ibn Shihab reported: Umar ibn al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Verily, we were a disgraceful people and Allah honored us with Islam. If we seek honor from anything besides that with which Allah honored us, Allah will disgrace us.”

Bro, I get that modern Israel was unfairly taken from Palestinians, but in a realistic perspective, the two-state solution would be the most successful. In fact, most Muslim countries agree with that, making it their ultimatum for the recognition of Israel. And also, it may also make it easier to reunite the lands into one Muslim state. For now, one state is simply too difficult.

no nation state solution

I don’t see how a 2 state solution can work, the State of Israel essentially has all the power in this situation, with backing from the US. A 2 State solution would only be on their terms, since they have the power.

Considering how violent, warmongering, arrogant, deceptive, and nationalistic the Zionists are, I don’t see how it is possible to have peace with such people.

What would be best is a no nation state solution, it was the dissolvation of the Ottoman empire and balkanization

no nation state solution

of the region during WW1, and divide and conquer that led to the Muslims losing control of that land (We also ended up losing control of Syria to the Nusayris). The only way we can reunite that land into 1 Muslim State is if we had a united Muslim Empire following Islam. This is what we had when Umar and Salahuddeen liberated that area from Eastern Roman and Crusader control

I don’t think it’s our choice to make ask all the shuhada palestinians if they agree then it’s okay with me.

you better not play that nasheed

Nah, Allah has already made his decree already and His shuhada died enforcing it.
