There are different aspects of the Palestinian issue, but today we will try to understand two of the most important and fundamental aspects, which may be the main reasons why the Palestinian issue has not been resolved to date.
Occupied Palestine is the third holiest site after the Masjid-e-Haram (Kaaba) and Masjid-e-Nabavi (Prophet’s Mosque) on the world map for Muslims. This holiest site has been occupied by the Zionist state of Israel for the last 72 years. The Zionist enemy has been pursuing shameful measures to expel Muslims from Palestine for the last seventy years.
The United Nations has passed hundreds of resolutions condemning the atrocities against the Palestinians. Dozens of other countries issued statements against Israeli brutalities. The United Nations provided aid to the Palestinians, cursed Israel, but did not do what it should have done, in the spirit of the rights of the oppressed Palestinians.
If you look at the Middle East, most countries are devastated except Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and a few small countries. Syria, the region’s most important country, has been embroiled in a decade-long civil war that has left more than half a million Syrians dead. The catastrophe in the Middle East is a war of occupation of Syria. Whoever has a stronger grip on Syria will rule the Middle East, for which Saudi Arabia and Iran are showing full force.
But it is worth noting that the Syrian people and the majority of the Middle East are in favor of Iran, despite full support from Saudi Arabia. Not all of these people are Shia Muslims. There are also large numbers of Sunni Muslims who prefer Iran over Saudi Arabia. The reason is not to be Shiite or Sunni, but for the real steps taken for the Palestinians.
You will be surprised to know that the besieged city of Gaza, which has been under an illegal Israeli economic blockade for the past 13 years, with a population of 2 million, 800,000 people are unemployed, and where death is cheaper than bread, but How the insurgents living there have disturbed Israel in technological advancement.
Israeli military sources say Hamas’s army and other Palestinian resistance groups have the help of Iranian scientists and technologists who are training the insurgents to build drones. With their help, Hamas has built drones that do not appear on Israeli radar, and this is extremely dangerous for Israel’s security.
Israel has asserted its power on all the countries in the region, but the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah has deprived Israel of sleep. Kamil Mohsen Ali, a Hezbollah commander, was killed in an Israeli attack in Damascus on July 20, prompting Hezbollah to seek revenge. Israel apologized to Hezbollah through UN officials, saying it was not aware of the Hezbollah commander’s presence. At the same time, Israel placed its troops on high alert. There is no doubt that Hezbollah has become a nightmare for a military power like Israel.
The arrogance of Israel’s power began to erode when Israel’s ongoing occupation of Lebanon from 1982 ended in 2000 due to the resistance from Hezbollah troops, and Lebanon was completely liberated from Israeli occupation. The defeat came as a shock to all pro-Israel governments in the world, including the United States and the fake Zionist state of Israel. This defeat had reduced Israel’s arrogance and pride to dust. The balance of power in the region began to change and Israel’s hegemonic role in the region continued to diminish. Israel, which used to occupy the lands of the Arab countries, ran out of Lebanon humiliated and disgraced. This was the greatest defeat for Israel and its supporters in history.
Hezbollah is Lebanon’s Shiite Muslim resistance movement and has repeatedly humiliated Israel. That is why Saudi Arabia considers Shiite-majority Iran as its biggest rival in the struggle for influence in the region. That is why the son of Saudi King Salman, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, for the first time in 2018, openly stated in an interview with The Atlantic, an American magazine, that “Israel has a right to survive.” At the same time, the second most powerful figure in Saudi Arabia told the American magazine that they have no problem with the Jews.
The Saudi Crown Prince’s statement could also be interpreted as saying that the most influential Arab state in the Gulf now wants closer ties with Israel. At the same time, Muhammad bin Salman had said, “If you look at the area of Israel, on a comparative basis, its economy is a large economy, and Israel and Saudi Arabia have many common interests.”
Everybody knows how much influence Saudi Arabia has on the UAE and other Gulf countries. The UAE’s recent friendship agreement with Israel is not surprising, as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Bahrain have had secret relations with Israel for the past decade. In fact, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain were to host an American project called the “Deal of the Century.” In short, Saudi Arabia is pressuring its allies to recognize Israel.
Leading American journalist David Ignatius, in his August 14 article in the Washington Post, quoted Jared Kushner, son-in-law of US President Donald Trump and Middle East adviser, said that this is just the beginning and that other Gulf states will take steps to improve their relations with Israel. He did not name those countries, but US presidential officials say other Gulf states include Oman, Bahrain, and Morocco, which will soon resume relations with Israel.
