Salam Alaikum brothers and sisters.
I have been ‘missing in action’ on this blog and I apologize for that, but who in their rightful mind, could focus on a blog in the midst of the hideous massacre taking place in Gaza !!
This ramadhan was a blessing for us. We were blessed to be in good health, blessed to be together and blessed to be fasting. Sadly this Ramadhan also bought with it an awful reminder. A reminder of death, a reminder of mass scale destruction of the muslim ummah and a reminder of how we could, can and would perish if we did not remain steadfast in our worship and stand for our brothers and sisters, suffering in different parts of the world.
Also a reminder that, inspite of all the chaos and loss of life in Gaza, the world’s largest democratic government did not reach out to help them, send aid to them, or even condemn the oppressor. It was a reminder that NO HUMAN OR NATION can or will, help the muslim ummah except ofcourse, Allah Almighty, and hence we should not beseech anyone but Allah swt.
I will not repeat here, about the mass-scale destruction of homes, hospitals, schools, industries and even the power station ~ And I will not repeat the images of blown bodies, mutilated heads, pregnant mothers shot in the head, babies dying in the neo natal wards due to lack of medication and electricity. Those are stories that you already know.
But I will say that I am appalled by the total lack of empathy on the part of the United Nations. I will say, that it leaves me with despair to realize that this organization has failed miserably in saving precious lives, taking immediate and appropriate action in rescuing the old, the women and children ~ the civilians, who had nothing to do with Hamas. This organization has shown us that the reins lie in the hands of the world’s largest bully.
There are countries, who refuse to call it a genocide while there are countries, where thousands have come out on streets in protest. South American countries, South Africa, Ireland, Turkey, Afghanistan are some of the amazing countries which were vocal in their decisions to stand against the Zionists. While what is appalling is the silence by the Muslim world including Pakistan !!
This genocide is a reminder of how real the holocaust is for the muslims ! It is a reminder of which muslim state, stands by his brother and which muslim state has become so addicted to his lavish lifestyle that he dare not get out of his comfort zone. Politics and power is the price they are NOT ready to pay for.
Another aspect that became crystal clear is the sly role of the “media” ~ while American channels like ABC had even shown blown up Palestinian homes claiming them to be Israeli !! (which they apologized for later ~ when mass damage had already taken place ) ~ BBC in particular has played the most ‘shocking’ role !! Thousands of English people gathered in protest of BBC’s preposterous role in the entire coverage of the “war on Gaza”
There is a saying that only in trial, we realize who our friends and our foe are. Before the trial ~ all are our friends.
Man proposes his plans and he is arrogant for he believes his plans will succeed but Allah Almighty has his own plans and his plans are righteous and Just. He is the best judge. For all those little children who were drilled with bullet holes and shrapnel, brutally murdered mothers and callously shot grandparents. For all those lifeless babies who couldn’t make it to their first breath in this world ~ to all those fathers who had to silently carry the mutilated bodies and limbs of their precious sons and daughters ~ ALLAH ALMIGHTY is the best judge. So fret not ~ Your loss in this world will be highly rewarded in the next. Inshallah.
And for the silent muslim spectators ~ you have a lot to answer to Allah Almighty ~ so be prepared.
The only silver lining in the Gaza Massacre was that people all over the world ~ sat up, took notice and reacted in a positive way ~ the learned realized researched the archives of Palestinian history ~ the wise discovered how atrocious Israel’s plans were and scores of Jews, themselves protested against it ! One such remarkable name is Naomi Wolf. That itself, is a victory of the sorts. What with, having spent millions in keeping a tight grip on the media for decades ~ finally the social media has been able to deliver where the news media failed.
And as for Israel’s media and economics control: people are now waking up to crimes that are committed by Israel, thanks to the social medias, people like myself are boycotting all Israeli products. It’s slowly showing up in the stock market. The fact is, Israel can try to control people by feeding them wrong propagandas and lies, but a ‘woken up’ mind is more lethal than any of their tactics. It’s time to call a spade a spade!
