Biden Supports Ongoing Oppression and Eviction of Palestinians
A night of terror in Palestine, with more than 200 injured following a brutal police crackdown at the Masjid Al-Aqsa and other locations, powerfully demonstrates that the illegal Jewish entity only continues to grow bolder in its repression of the people of Palestine. Underlying the protests is the attempt by the illegal entity to evict Palestinian families from East Jerusalem. The illegal entity is committed to maintaining its ‘Jewish character’ and, in their view, this requires that an overwhelming majority of the citizens are Jewish.
Furthermore, the Zionist plan is not limited within the formal borders of the illegal entity. Recent decades have seen an intensified Jewish settlement drive within the West Bank, and the limiting of Palestinians into ever smaller territorial spaces tightly defined within an overall Zionist frame.
US President Joe Biden tries to present himself as different from his predecessor Donald Trump, but basic US policy remains unchanged from one administration to the next, as it is built on fixed ideological thought and method and well-established and widely accepted styles and means. Just this week, Biden stressed the importance of normalisation with the illegal entity in a phone call with UAE. According to a White House statement, Biden “underlined the strategic importance of the normalization of relations between the United Arab Emirates and Israel”. The statement also noted that Biden “expressed his full support for strengthening and expanding these arrangements”. So-called Western human rights, or the West’s allegedly cherished ideals of freedom and democracy have no significance when set against Western interests. Officially, America stands by its ‘two nation’ plan for a Palestinian state alongside the illegal entity. But unofficially, America fully supports continued occupation of the entire of Palestine and the apartheid type system that the Jews impose upon the Palestinians relegating them to a greatly oppressed underclass. Situated in the heart of the Muslim world, the illegal entity itself, for all its boasting, has negligible capability to actual defend itself from the much larger Arab powers that surround it. The Jewish people are well known to be fearful of death and weak in battle. The singular cause of its continued existence is the support of the United States of America, which views the entity as a vital strategic foothold at the centre point of the Middle East.
We are deceiving ourselves if we think that the problem of Palestine will solve itself, or that Western created institutions such as the United Nations can solve it. These are the solutions offered by the agent rulers of Muslim countries who owe their loyalty not to Muslims but to the West. The believers must comprehend that the present world order, including institutions such as the United Nations, has been meticulously devised only to support continued Western exploitation of the rest of the humanity. Palestine is not a problem of Palestinians alone but of the entire Muslim Ummah, just as is Kashmir, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya, Xinjiang, the Rohingya, and others. But with Allah’s permission, the Muslim Ummah shall soon overthrow its agent rulers and pledge its loyalty to sincere, capable, ideological leadership that shall head the re-established Islamic Khilafah (Caliphate) State on the method of the Prophet (saw) which will unify all Muslim lands under its leadership, liberate all occupied territories, restore the full Islamic way of life and carry the light of Islam to the entire world.
The US special envoy for Yemen this week has urged Saudi Arabia “to ease all restrictions at Hodeidah Port and Sanaa Airport, reach a comprehensive, nationwide ceasefire, and move to inclusive political talks”, according to a statement issued on his return from a visit to Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Oman. The statement added that, “There is a fair deal on the table that will bring immediate relief to Yemeni people.” In fact, it is America that created the conflict in Yemen in the first place in order to wrest control from Britain. Although the Western countries are allied together to protect their own countries, they nevertheless ruthlessly compete with each over the rest of the world, which they inhumanly consider to be fair sport between them. America entered Yemen through opposing forces, as has become common for it in recent years. From one side, America used Saudi Arabia, and from the other side America used Iran, both forces working as two blades of the scissors to cut everything between them. British elements within Yemen are not yet crushed, but America is hoping that it has waged sufficient destruction in Yemen for Britain to accept that it has lost and so withdraw from the field.
After Iraq and Afghanistan, America has also discovered for itself what the European realised long ago, which is that it is impossible for the disbelievers to fight against the believers. This is why America has resorted now to using the forces of Muslims to fight its wars on Muslim lands, making use of agent rulers who owe their loyalty to the West instead of to Muslims and Islam.
As the US commences its withdrawal from Afghanistan, the forces of the US proxy government in Kabul have come under intensified attack from jihadi forces, and have increasingly resorted to calling in US air support.
According to a report in the New York Times: Six military bases collapsed in northern Baghlan Province Thursday. On Monday, in the western province of Farah, a military base was overrun. In the south, aside from nearly encircling the capital of Helmand Province, the Taliban seized a key dam in neighboring Kandahar. The report also adds that at least 139 pro-government forces were killed this past week. But it is expected that America will work hard in the weeks and months to come in order to stabilised the Kabul government, or produce a compromise arrangement that will continue to safeguard key US interests. And America will exert even greater pressure on Pakistan to secure its interests. Already this week, four Pakistani soldiers were killed and six injured after coming under attack at the border with Afghanistan. It was through allowing such attacks previously that America was able to draw Pakistan into supporting America in Afghanistan. The Pakistani leadership foolishly fears America, even though America has proved unable to fight on the ground against Muslims in Afghanistan, which is much less developed than Pakistan. Allah (swt) says in the Noble Qur’an:
(إِنَّمَا ذَلِكُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ يُخَوِّفُ أَوْلِيَاءهُ فَلاَ تَخَافُوهُمْ وَخَافُونِ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ)
“That is only Satan who frightens [you] of his supporters. So fear them not, but fear Me, if you are [indeed] believers.” [Aal-i Imran: 175].
