Pak-Saudi Govts Should Call OIC Meeting

By Zaheerul Hassan

UNO and world over protests failed to convince Israeli to stop brutality in Gaza. Tonnage of bombs pounded in Gaza by Tel Aviv’s warplanes in more than 155 airstrikes on the blockaded strip till 27th day of aggression.

So far, in airstrikes and ground actions Palestinian sources claimed 1,724 killed while 9, 080 others have been injured. 421 children and 205 women and 21 medical staff are among the victims. The sources also states that 80 percent of those killed are civilians. Meanwhile, the Israeli army said one of its soldiers, previously thought to have been captured in Gaza, was dead.

Tel Aviv had earlier accused the Hamas of capturing Hadar Goldin in order t o intensify its assault on Gaza, whereas Hamas denied the allegation, saying the soldier was probably killed by an Israeli airstrike. However, on 3 August,2014, Israeli authorities also confirmed the killing of her soldier in the airstrike too. During this period 64 Israeli military soldiers have been killed in retaliatory fight by the Hamas.

The current death toll of Palestinian has been much more as compare to 2007 fatalities that was 1120.
Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud on 1 August 2014, in his TV address openly criticized international community silence over the prevailing situation in Gaza. He very rightly declared Israeli’s military offensive a “war crime against humanity.”

“We see the blood of our brothers in Palestine being shed in collective massacre, that have spared nobody, and in war crimes against humanity . . . all taking place before the eyes and ears of the international community,” the King’s statement said.

In the last month, on 16 July 2014, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif also demanded that Israeli should stop cruelty of Palestinian. In this connection he stated that these crimes against innocent civilians, women children and elderly, were unparalleled in the recent history of the world. He was also disappointed over the silence of international community against this injustice.

But unfortunately, the quietness and ineffectiveness of Muslim Ummah have made Palestinians and other freedom fighters’ movements including Kashmiris have become more vulnerable due to state terrorism of Israel and India. Both these countries are being ruled by the extremists’ parties and believe in crushing Muslim and minorities. In both cases UN and international community terribly failed in stopping their naked belligerence against innocent civilians and freedom fighters.

In fact, Muslim Ummah needs to forget their difference and has to get united as of 1973 when oil was used as weapon. That ultimately forced the West and USA in bringing Israel on negotiation table, which ultimately led to the Camp David Accords, which were signed by Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin on 17 September 1978.

Anyhow, in the ongoing Gaza crises USA President Obama and rulers of some of western countries are protecting Israeli stance against Gazans and other Palestinians. They name Palestinian retaliatory movements as terrorism and violence, whereas fact is that Jews forces are interested to drive out the real inhabitants from their homeland. Gaza. However, the public opinion this time total indifferent from the thinking of their ruling elite even in US and Western countries. Since couple of days millions of protesters are taking part in the anti-Israeli demonstrations rallies, in support of Gaza in France, Venezuela, Pakistan, Bangladesh and UK. The masses have condemned Israeli aggression and raised the slogans in solidarity with poor innocent Gazans.

The Israeli ruthless and inhumane behavior towards the poor Palestinian people remind us of the Vietnam eras and world wars when American and Nazi killed thousands of people in napalm, atomic and chemical bombings.

All those stated actions now are being considered as war crimes against the civilians. Similarly, Israel with the support of U.S is repeating the same crimes against Gazans. Thus, if Mr. Obama and his team consider that Israeli holocaust against real inhabitants of Palestine is right then Nazi holocaust against Jews would also be taken as right. We must remember that all such type of actions ultimately create revenge in the minds of victims of state terrorism and give birth to the violence in the society. In this regard, Pakistani-born British Labour MP Yasmin Qureshi made the comparison during a parliamentary debate on the humanitarian situations facing Hamas-ruled Gaza residents. She is holding Master of Laws degree. She is chased by Jewish groups for comparing the Israeli siege of 1.7 million Native Muslim and Christian Gazans with Jewish Holocaust in Europe in the 1940s. Jews lobby has also exerted pressure on another Muslim leader of UK parliament Mr. Lord Nazir to leave Labour Party. Mr. Nazir has also condemned Israeli brutality in Gaza.

Earlier, On July 26, 2014, former UK’s deputy prime minister Lord Prescott in an Op-Ed at British daily Mirror, called Israel’s on-going Gaza War as War Crime.

“Israel’s brutality, disproportionate and grossly indiscriminate bombardment of Gaza must be regarded as war crime,” John Prescott said.

“Imagine a country claiming the lives of nearly three times as many as were lost in the MH17 plane tragedy in less than three weeks. A nation which blasted a hospital, shelled and killed children from a gunboat as they played football on the beach and was responsible for 1,000 deaths, at least 165 of them children, in just two weeks’. Such a country would be ‘branded a pariah state, condemned by the United Nations, the US and the UK’,” Lord Prescott added.

Anyhow, due to American policy, particularly after 9/11 Muslim world had suffered a lot and unending violence can be found in Middle East, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Pakistan. Even in Saudi Arabia some of Islamic groups covertly supported by Mossad and CIA are threatening peace and kingship. We must know that terrorism has many types starting from individual to the state. In this regard King Abdullah truly added that “terrorism has many manifestations, the most dangerous being state terrorism.” Israel and India is leasing in such type of state terrorism.

Therefore, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Iran should come forward and join hands for playing an active role for the betterment of Islamic Ummah, They should move resolution in UN Security Council against Israel for stopping aggression and also give clear message of boycotting Tel Aviv supporting countries. Moreover conference of heads of Islamic states should be called immediately to exert pressure on Israel and her masters for permanent solution of Palestinian and Kashmir people.
