Peace be with you - Asallam alaykum
My apologies in advance if anyone might misunderstand my meaning with the article, but enough is enough and this conflict must come to an end with Peaceful means as I will explain my position.
The Palestinian issue has been ignored for too long and it seems there is never enough security for Israelies today. For some The existence( 0f Palestinians ) is a threat in itself. Not most Israelies are aware of this and their love for the state has sometimes over come their real grasp of the situation, where people have been dieing for over sixty years over an Ideology made by men in Europe. Selfish men ? maybe, only God knows. The Facts are the Palestinian people are not guilty of anything except of living with the Jews and Christians in mostly peace and harmony in communities as neighbors.
For over 1400 years already Freedom to be a christian or a Jew and obey your commands from your prophets. The common good of the body over came the minor differences and dealing with each other face to face in peace and well manners only made things grow stronger.
People knew each other, trusted each other, understood each other and A bond existed among them that they even fought side by side against the aggressors.
Yes it's very important to point out the truth and against every crusade there were Jews and Christians fighting against the European occupiers. Those times seem so much more holy to the land as what proves to be today.
The Europeans finally won after many crusades attempts with their own invented terror tactics. The worst part is that all these European invaders had in mind is the ideology that JERUSALEM was under threat with the Muslims and does not belong to them, complete negligence of the Christians living in the Muslim lands. They didn't even know christian communities existed in Muslim lands for thousand years plus. The war pushers didn't care to mention any truth but the Facts the ideology was pushed forward.
Palestine has been a target for a very long time already and after ww1 and ww2 the whole world was taking a new shape and Palestine was slowly becoming a Zionist state called Israel.
With the introduction of the Zionist ideology ( giving full ownership to any Jews mainly Zionist Jews, which completely denies any rights to the Palestinian people). What was known to being as the holy land, became a new ideology and became a state to a specific people only. The Zionist ideology has changed things and made people much less brotherly and communities built for generations after generations and even more, are being destroyed and replaced by a radical view and peace was lost.. Why all the hostility all of a sudden ?
The Israeli state is illegal from day one and Judaic ( scriptural ) abiding Jews will argue that for me.
Israel can end the conflict tomorrow, but to my understanding of the Zionist ideology it will never stop until all of greater Israel is created and the temple must be built over the Aqsa masjid/Mosque. According to Judaism only the Messiah will return the Jews to the promised land and zionist are many people with a Judaic teaching gone wrong. They are not the messiah, the Messiah is one person and Comes from The One God.
Some people want people to believe God is war and encourage such ideologies. Why do we have then prophets ? Why does a person even belief in God if the IDEOLOGY can be altered so freely ? Why don't Zionist change their ideology by achieving this strong bond in greater Israel simply by copying the way the MUSLIMS did it ? why are Zionist so possessive over a land they did not associate with for over a thousand years and more ?
God gives freedom to all humanity to think and do with whatever ideology they wish to believe. Send messengers with a path to the holy land ( eternal heavens ). The prophets sent to us all come with a peaceful and united way to follow and all good deeds have their rewards from the Almighty One ( Allah = Thee One God ). We cannot neglect the fact as well that all bad deeds will have their rewards as well.
What part a God abiding person would do or aim for ?
War happens for many reasons, mostly bad reasons but sometimes it can be for good reasons for example the war against Saddam and his nuclear arsenal . Amazing how people who push for wars have the most to get out of it and always the average joe is on the front lines for it. War oppression never a good thing for any believer for oppression is hated by Allah.
People who support oppression are not truly of God for God gives so much and we greatly under appreciate to begin with. Gifts wrapped in gifts wrapped in gifts. The most precious gift ( life ) has no value to others anymore. Ideologies take over the mind and some are evil ideologies disguised well enough to mix in the belief.
Humanity has a link in all of them easily explained here in the Quran
And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect. [Noble Quran 30:21]
Human being can live in peace as one body, but with out oppression, wars and conflict. Treaties are established and must be honored. Corruption and traitors must be rooted out. The wealth must be returned to the people ( instead of private corporations which profit very handsomely from the people and the government itself ).
The Palestinian Issue can resolve many wars of today and to come and as long as certain agendas are seeked the process shall continue. It will be only a matter of time when the people will stop it ?
From the Israeli prospective; The finger pointing is never pointed at themselves. The Palestinians prospective is oppression for a very long time already.
Muslims and Jews lived in relative peace for over 1300 years, why is it when Zionism comes to the pictures ( they become enemies )?
And they talk about treaties, Why don't they look at the treaties by the Muslims and Jews/Christians who lived in the land and it's their right. No need for human rights foundations and none religious based ideologies. For example the new ideology of Islamic terrorism!! Terrorism is highly condemned in the Quran, specifically against innocence, women, elderly, children..
What do the scriptures teach us ?
O human kind,We have created you from a single pair of a male and a female,and made u into nations and tribes,that you shall recognize one another and not that you shall dispute one another.
Quran Ch.49, Verse 13
“God calls to the Home of Peace.”(The Quran, 10:25)
According to Islam, Paradise is the ideal human abode, and is thus called the ‘Home of Peace.’ It is also said that, the people of Paradise will wish peace to one another, indicating that the social culture of the people of Paradise will be based on peace.
The Quran, avers that, ‘reconciliation is best’ (4:128), and judging by the consequences, the way of peace is far better than that of confrontation. By the law of Nature, God has decreed that success will be met with only on a reconciliatory path, and not on a confrontational or a violent course of action.
Whenever the Prophet had an option between two courses of action, he always chose the easier (non-confrontational) one. (Bukhari)
This means that, violent activism should not be indulged in if peaceful activism is an option. For, peace is the easier course as compared to violence.
Our English word “Law” does not have the same meaning as the Hebrew word “Torah.” Law implies a jail sentence or severe fine if broken. On the other hand, Torah is best understood as “guidelines and instructions” that were given to God’s people for guidance on how to live a godly life and is what identifies them with the Holy One of Israel. Kefa (Peter) states in 1 Peter 1:15, “But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: Be holy, because I am holy.” [also see Lev. 11:44,45; 19:2, 20:7]
In regards to - ALIENS, FOREIGNERS, SOJOURNERS - GENTILES
we see that Gentiles (aliens, foreigners, sojourners, or strangers) who attach themselves to Israel were required to “do exactly” as “native-born Israelites…You and the alien shall be the same before the Lord: The same Laws and regulations will apply both to you and to the alien living among you.”
We see this throughout the Torah. In Leviticus 24:22 God states, “Ye shall have ONE manner of Law, as well for the stranger as for one of your own country; for I am the Lord your God.” This is repeated in Exodus 12:49 and other places in Scripture.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.
Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
It's time to return the land back to the holy. Who amongst us will recapture the true ideology of peace in the holy land ?
Peace is ever lasting and it's something we must be familiar with if we truly believe we are to go to the true holy land ( heaven ).
Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. 002.062
God is He besides Whom there is no god, the Sovereign, the Most Holy, the Source of Peace, the Bestower of Security, the Protector, the Mighty, the Subduer, the Exalted, Holy is God far above that which they associate with Him. He is God, the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner: His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him. He i s Mighty, the Wise. (59:23-25)
