Indigenous Nationals Bearing the Brunt
Maltreatment of the Jews, all over the world, was one of the main
reasons Islam was emboldened to continue persecution of the Jews and
come hard on them, especially during the Third Reich of Nazi Hitler.
Not recognizing them as the indigenous people of the land of Israel, the
Jews were not allowed to return to their traditional homeland. Now that
the West has reconciled with itself, after World War II, recognising the
Jews as an independent people, Arab/Islamic governments refuse to
recognise them as a nation in their own God-given land and right.
Islam’s uncompromising attitude and adamant stance has led the bitter
Arab-Israeli conflict to reach a deadly impasse.
The Arab-Israeli conflict is not a purely local dispute or a minor
confrontation. It is an Islamic-Israeli war. It is a religious war. It
is an all-out war. Otherwise, why would Iran, Pakistan, Malaysia,
Indonesia, and scores of other Islamic nations that are not Arab in race
and nationality, and thousands of kilometres apart, condemn Israel and
refuse to recognise the Jews as a people in their own right? Israel is
the inheritance of the People of Israel; so is Assyria the inheritance
of her displaced Assyrian people in northern Mesopotamia.
The misnomer of The Holy Land of Israel as ‘Palestine’ is a grievous
error, which the world body needs to rectify. The borderlines of the
Holy Land, which the Muslims call ‘Palestine’, do not reflect the true
picture of traditional Israel. The boundaries of the disputed region
need to be politically redrawn for the capital Jerusalem to fall within
the State of Israel as its traditional capital. Jerusalem would then
remain as the physical capital of Israel and as the spiritual capital of
the world, open to all nations to go and worship there.
