The ongoing events in Gaza pose a real challenge for Arabs and Muslims, highlighting the horrifying double standards in the way the world deals with different countries.
Muslims seem to be treated as direct enemies, experiencing similar suffering to that faced by Palestinians, Syrians, and Iraqis. Therefore, Muslims must be cautious and not be deceived by beautiful slogans calling for peace and equality, as reality clearly reveals human rights violations and United Nations agreements, and war crimes are committed openly before the eyes of the world.
This harsh reality underscores that the laws and agreements established to protect human rights and global peace are not applied with the same rigor and strength when it comes to Muslims and their issues. Instead, these laws are used as a cover for jihad and an attempt to weaken the will of the people and deter them by force.
Thus, we can confidently say: “This is the reality of our world, where everything seems fake and misleading.” Injustice and bias are evident.
From here, the Arab world and Muslims must stand together and unite their ranks to defend their rights and dignity. Everyone is urged to stand in solidarity and unite for equality and justice. It is essential to emphasize the need to rally around Al-Aqsa Mosque, pray for its victory, and let the truth and justice shine in the face of the strong will of the people and the strength that stands firmly against challenges.
This is the stage where unity and resilience must be our strong slogans, as they alone will help us overcome these challenges and achieve the justice we seek.
Palestine holds a deep and long history in the Islamic and Arab world. Al-Quds Al-Makdis, or Jerusalem, is considered the third holiest mosque in Islam, making it a matter of particular importance for Muslims. Muslims and Arabs feel strong bonds of culture, religion, and history with Palestine, making them committed to supporting it in the face of injustice and occupation.
The Palestinian issue is not just a political matter; it is a humanitarian and justice issue, as Palestinians have faced human rights violations and the oppression of occupation for decades.
“Beware, beneath the ashes, the flames are ablaze, And he who sows thorns reaps wounds.” Abu Al-Qasim Al-Shabbi
