Tactics & Strategies of the Hardliners
 

 

Arab Palestinians allege that the whole of ‘Palestine’ is an integral part of the Arab world and indivisible. They consider the whole landmass that lies beyond the Gaza Strip as part of Palestine - an ambiguous border definition of the ‘Arab’ Palestine. Arabs speak of their past glory and territorial landmass, presuming Israel as part of the Abode of Peace of the Islamic Umma Nation. Islam portrays the Palestinians as victims of foul play, by falsifying their Aegean background to Arab.

Pan-Arabism seems to have recently surged to a want of the whole of the Middle East and North Africa, as “the Arab World” – with an overly ambitious notion of extending their domain, disrespecting the land rights of the indigenous peoples of the region. By their definition, all residents of Palestine, during and after 1947, were Palestinian Arabs, subject to the Arab Islamic rule of law. (Ref: articles two, five and six of the Palestine National Covenant). Islamic countries treat the indigenous Assyrians in the Arab States in the same manner as they treat the Jews, progressively altering their nationality to Arab or Kord.
Spain is an anathema in Islamic history. The Arabs, under the Berber leadership of Tariq Bin Zeyad, invaded Spain in 711 AD. Islam occupied Spain and ruled it for nearly eight centuries. Ultimately, the Arabs were forced out of Spain. Spain rooted out Arab rule from its midst. It restored Catholicism as its official Christian religion. Spain succeeded in liberating itself from (Dar Al-Silm) the Abode of Peace, by bringing the Spanish political and military forces under one unified command against the Arab occupier.

January 2, 1492, marked the end of Islamic reign in Spain. It has since become an indelible black mark in Islamic history. Islam reiterates that Israel will not be a repeat of Spain. Islam, as a whole, will never endorse recognition of Israel. It is against their doctrine to surrender land that they have already won and falls within the realm of the Islamic Umma Nation. In their dictum, the biblical land of Israel became part of Palestine, a so-called state of the Abode of Peace, after it fell to the Arab invaders and that it should remain so.

For example, the Palestine National Covenant declares in Article 6,

 

“The Jews who had normally resided in Palestine until the beginning of the Zionist invasion will be considered Palestinians.”

 

In Article 15 it states,

 

“ The liberation of Palestine, from an Arab viewpoint, is a national duty… and aims at the elimination of Zionism in Palestine.”

 

No matter how many Islamic states recognise Israel, there will always be some militant hardliners that will reject it. They will act on behalf of certain defiant Islamic states and continue to oppose its existence. With continued financial and manpower support by such hostile states, the militant mujahideen act as proxy and fight their war.

All the Islamic governments in the Abode of Peace want to do away with their Western style parliamentary system and replace it with their own sectarian one, based on their religious law of (Majlis Al-Shuri) the Consultative Council, or (Majlis Al-Watani) the National Assembly. They bitterly oppose the existence of Israel and restoration of Assyria to the end. Their jihad (holy war) slogan is ‘do or die’; either perish or pressure the Islamic states to revoke their recognition of Israel and suppress the Assyrian identity to the end. The policy of the (Dar Al-Harb and Dar Al-Silm) Abode of War and the Abode of Peace dictates never to surrender gained territory but rather enlarge the community and ultimately declare their faith supreme globally (Pryce-Jones, 1989: pp 27-28).

Losing Islamised territory outside (Dar Al-Silm) the Abode of Peace geographical zone is considered a relapse and regrettable, like Spain and the Balkans. But to lose Islamic territory within the borders of the Abode of Peace, like Israel and the future prospect of re-establishing self-rule in Assyria, is unforgivable - To Islam it is a bitter pill, hard to swallow. It is against their Islamic doctrine. It is contradictory to the adherence and fulfilment of their Prophet’s personal message of global Islamisation. Regress does not mean abandonment of their mission. They force their religion on others, believing that their sword is just and that no one can repulse it.

Mujahideen are the poker of Islam that faithfully keeps the jihad fire astir. The demise of the Soviet presence and their troops in Afghanistan is still fresh in the Russian people’s minds. This was done by the surging wave of the mujahideen against the Soviet troops, not for the love of America or the West or mere hatred of Communism, but for the love of Allah and in fulfillment of their prophet’s message of global Islamisation. They insist on following the path of spreading their message (Al-Da’awah) by force rather than preaching it by oratory means and open dialogue.
