Israel Lost the War and America Betrayed Humanity in Gaza

Global Mankind vs. Political Wickedness

Rationality requires objective reasoning and it is not coming for an impending cataclysm of the Israeli onslaught on Rafah and the United States – the complicit friend in making genocide betrayed its history of civility, morality, responsible political governance, equality of human rights, freedom, and justice and a lot more that only future will unfold. Ferocious concepts of good and evil are being implied by the Israeli war agenda challenging the human consciousness of principles of truth, freedom, and honesty.

Mike Whitney (“Genocide in Gaza: King Bibi’s Land Grab” Global Research: 5/10/2024), is an independent reputable citizen journalist who captures the prevalent facts:

The assault on Rafah comes despite the acceptance by Hamas Monday of a proposal for a temporary cessation of hostilities in exchange for the release of hostages. But after spending weeks attempting to blame the Palestinians for the ongoing war, Israeli officials flatly rejected the proposal….The cynical and misleading phrase “Israel’s right to defend itself” has become synonymous with the premeditated mass-murder of civilians. Most people have never seen anything as horrific as Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza which explains why college campuses across the United States have become hotbeds of political activism almost overnight. America’s students now serve as the nation’s conscience by opposing a flagrantly immoral onslaught that deliberately targets defenseless women and children….If you’ve ever taken a lifesaving course, you know there’s a real possibility that a drowning person will drag you under and you’ll both die. It’s a lesson that should be kept in mind when discussing America’s relationship with Israel. (Adapted from @LarryBoorstein.

PM Netanyahu is not winning the camouflaged political battle and resorts to an extreme fractured mindset to annihilate the innocent people of Gaza and more so at Rafah. He looks like a despotic figure, not a leader, broken in moral, spiritual, and human integrity lacking distinction between virtue and vice, and using the logic of power as the source of controversial strategies violating the international civilized norms of human safety, conflict resolution, and peacemaking.

Across the US, new generations of thinking people demonstrate revulsion against the one-track established political perspective of the State of Israel and its war in Gaza on university campuses and question the rationality of catastrophic human sufferings, crimes against humanity, and the alleged genocide of Palestinians. Ironically, America and Israel appear to be ignoring the legally binding implications of the ICJ verdict demanding Israel to “prevent all acts of Genocide in Gaza.”

Western Colonialism and the Betrayal of Arab-Muslim Leaders

The static Arab-Muslom leadership lacking credibility hides under the OIC (The Organization of Islamic Conferences) – a dry-inked paper entity to propel its meaningless resolution for the ceasefire and peace in Palestine. Some of those signing the paper enjoin business relationships with Israel. They are being watched and cursed by the Arab masses for indifference and betrayal of the Islamic principles of helping the helpless victims of war. There are reportedly several thousand Western (German, French, the US, and British) mercenaries fighting alongside the Israeli forces in Gaza.

The Western mythologists view the oil-exporting Arab leaders as “camel jockeys” and brainless figures. They live in palaces protected by American and European mercenaries, while erecting high-rise buildings, organizing football matches, Olympic games, and COP28, while 2.5 million are being displaced and more than 34,547 are massacred across Gaza and some 14,700 innocent children killed. Israeli attacks on hospitals, places of worship, and the killing of civilians go unabatedly. The Arab-Muslim leaders have no sense of time or history and capacity to defend the interest of Islam as the Israeli Ultra Nationalists plan to dismantle the 3rd holiest site Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.

Planet Earth is Living for All – Those Bombing it are Morally and Intellectually Sick People

Earth is living and sustains life and all that is needed by all living things and rotates itself at a speed of 1000 miles per hour at the equator and orbits the Sun at an average speed of 67062 MPH. Earth is a “trust” to humankind for its existence, sustenance of life, survival, progress, and future-making. Those who bomb the Earth and destroy human lives and habitats are not normal human beings and God will hold them accountable for the consequences of their crimes against mankind.“Fear God” and ‘do not violate the covenants of peace and trust on Earth’,remind the teachings of the Bible, Torah, and Quran to all mankind, otherwise God’s punishment to the transgressor will be severe. (Quran: 40: 21):

“Do they not travel through the Earth and see what was the End before them? They were even superior to them in strength; And in the traces (they have left) in the land: But God did call them to account for their sins; And none had they to defend them against God.”

Those who believe in and follow the Divine Judaism – the generations of Israelites are reminded by God (Quran 2: 84-85):

And remember, We took a Covenant from the Children of Israel (progeny of Jacob), Worship none but God; ….shed no blood amongst you, Nor displace people from homes: and Ye solemnly ratified…… And on the Day of Judgment they shall be consigned to the most grievous penalty, For God is not unmindful what ye do. 

And killing of innocent people is prohibited in the Ten Commandments (Torah):

‘Thou shalt not kill’ (Exod. 20:13; also Deut. 5:17). Jewish law views the shedding of innocent blood very seriously, and lists murder as one of three sins (along with idolatry and sexual immorality), that fall under the category of yehareg ve’al ya’avor – meaning “One should let himself be killed rather than violate it.”According to Rabbi Judah Loew of Prague: ‘Jewish law forbids the killing of innocent people, even in the course of a legitimate military engagement.’

PM Netanyahu admits “ Israel stands alone.” Do the people of Israel feel confident of PM Netanyahu’s leadership towards peacemaking and global harmony? When egoistic transgressors challenge the sanctity and limits of the Laws of God, they become an object of punishment from God and that is how many powerful nations were destroyed in history.

Lessons of History are ignored and how America Has Lost Humanity

If the global institutions were not defunct, the 2.5 million civilians should have been protected by the UNO and leading powers as the Charter makes them obligated in conflict zones. Mass graves of medical professionals, and innocent civilians targeted at gunpoint are discovered from three hospitals in Gaza but Western intellect does not call for accountability of the aggressors. What if the Arab-Muslim world had armed forces and honest leaders to protect the people of Gaza?

The American-Israeli collaborative war on Gaza and its immediate consequences made the Western world and all of its institutions shamefully redundant in the 21st century global norms of civility, human rights, freedom, justice, and safety of civilians – whereas crimes against humanity are captured in obscure impulses and indecision and deliberate inaction by the UNO and the Security Council. Mike Whitney (“Genocide in Gaza: King Bibi’s Land Grab” Global Research: 5/10/2024), quotes author Lawrence Davidson to answer some of the critical questions by showing how the transplanting of mainly European Jews to Palestine created “cultural and ‘racial’ incubators for an ‘us (superior) vs. them (inferior)’” which is fairly common among settler populations. Here’s more:

The founders of modern Zionism were both Jews and Europeans and (as such) had acquired the West’s cultural sense of superiority in relation to non-Europeans…..This sense of superiority would play an important role when a deal (the Balfour Declaration) (in which), the British would… help create a “Jewish national home” in Palestine……in other European colonies, where large numbers of Europeans resided, the era following World War II saw their eventual evacuation as power shifted over to the natives….Unfortunately, in the case of Palestine, this process of de-colonization never occurred…..And, from the Zionist standpoint, this entire process has worked remarkably well. Today all but a handful of Israeli Jews dislike and fear the people they conquered and displaced. They wish they would go away. And, when their resistance gets just a bit too much to bear, they are now quite willing to see them put out of the way….

Like Israel, Palestine is a nation, a human culture, and its entire natural visibility is obliterated by Israeli war machines. The animals have no bombs, no guns, and bullets to kill each other and do not reflect on the imperatives of life. We, human beings, are supposed to be intelligent and responsible species on this Earth. At the edge of reason, the notion of evil leads to the realization that evil and the tyranny of war must be stopped by all means, and those responsible for bombing the innocents, genocide, and crimes against humanity must be held accountable to restore the vision of a sustainable moral and intellectual humanity.

Pakistan: Indicted Criminals Disguised as Leaders

By Mahboob A. Khawaja

Pakistan for over 76 years lost its essence of national freedom which was achieved by a people-oriented movement for independence from British imperialism. British colonialism indoctrinated the masses of the sub-continent with its own distinct culture of thinking and behavior, public institutions and everlasting imprints of planned subjugation to foreign myths and ethnic superiority. The military establishment is one of those institutions of foreign thinking and actions. While India under Hindu dominated culture evolved its own brand of nationalism and political institutions, Pakistan fell victim to five major military coups and lost its search for national identity and Islamic foundation of the movement for national freedom. Today political corruption, moral and intellectual decadence, inept military domination and embedded uncertainties about a sustainable future are the new normal which a conscientious new generation of educated and intelligent Pakistanis are enduring for a navigational change. Pakistan future is at stake as the Generals and allied political conspirators would see no ending unless held accountable  and punished for their crimes.They are the wrong people – Generals do not build a nation, nor develop economy, agriculture, education, public institutions, moral and intellectual fabrics – they destroy all that was built by previous generations to pursue their own egoistic ends. Pakistan lost more than 50 years under corrupt politics. Pakistan does not need neo-colonial generals but Muslim thinking soldiers.

More so, the Feb 8, national elections displayed a highly corrupt systematic scheme of rigging the elections  and favoring the most hated – most feared indicted criminals – Sharifs – Bhuttos family and a few corrupt Generals and depriving the new generation to imagine a navigational change to transform Pakistan into a progressive nation of the 21st century. The few Generals led by Assim Munir appear more conspirators to use the indicted criminals to their favor and oust them when they become a liability as it happened during several military coups in the past.

A paradox of unforgivable systematic infested political corruption complemented by the ego of few Generals aligned with higher court judges to a new threshold of emerging disunity, military intervention in public affairs and favorite perversion of evil mongering claiming to serve the 240 million conscientious Pakistanis. Few Generals lacking capacity to think right planned a fraudulent elections to reinstate Bhuttos, Sharfis and Zardari as they were produced by the Generals who stole more than 50 years of the national lifetime, wealth and opportunities for change to buy palaces in the UK, France and Spain and discredit the nation, its honor and standing in global affairs. None of them could return the precious time stolen from the lives of Pakistanis. Please see: “British Colonialism and How India and Pakistan Lost Nation Freedom.” (2022). https://www.globalresearch.ca/british-colonialism-how-india-pakistan-lost-freedom/5765810

Do intelligent people learn words of wisdom even from their enemies? General PNK Choudry (former Chief of Staff of the Indian Armed Forces), who fought wars against Pakistan, narrated that if Pakistan had honest and intelligent leaders, they could have averted the 1971 surrender and defeat at Dakka- East Pakistan. I asked him how? He disclosed that ZA Bhutto had asked Mrs. Indira Gandhi (PM India) to help him become the next president of Pakistan; whereas Sheikh Mujib Rehman ( the elected majority leader) was more a Bengali nationalist aspiring to become the next leader of Pakistan. If the Pakistani Generals had transferred the power to Sheikh Rehman, it would have been the right thing to do and he would not have survived more than a few months as all the official machinery was based in Islamabad. Mrs. Gandhi agreed to help Zalfikar Bhutto but the price was defeat and surrender of Pakistan, and Bhutto was a power maniac to become the unelected leader of Pakistan. Editor Altaf Qureshi (“Skoot-e Dhaka say Purdha Utha Hey” the Urdu Digest), narrated the historic facts: ‘General Yahya Khan stabbed the body of Pakistan and Bhutto did the same.’ Are we not seeing the same story being repeated again in Pakistan after more than 50 years?

Recently, the US media reports Chuck Schumer (the US majority senate leader) is quoted telling the Pakistani Generals: ‘not to subdue or kill Imran Khan for political ambitions.’ Imran Khan (PTI imprisoned leader), in many ways represents the new hopes and aspirations of young generations of Pakistanis for political change.   Vengeful and paranoid Generals wanted to keep Khan and PTI out of power so nobody could question their wrong thinking and deceitful actions against the nation. Most dreadful tragedies have infallibly resulted in victimizing the masses. Today, the nation is crippled with catastrophic events of insecurity, mismanagement and socioeconomic and political exploitation.

The few Pakistani Generals view “power” and “Pakistan” as their own property. All Five coups were a stabbing to the body of the nation and ended up in loss of East Pakistan. Please see “ Pakistan Confronts its future under betrayal of Generals.” 01/24https://www.uncommonthought.com/mtblog/archives/2024/01/15/pakistan-confronts-its-future-under-betrayal-of-generals.php

Nation-building is Intricately linked to the Genius of New Generations of Educated  and Intelligent People, Not to Indicted Criminals

It is the role and responsibility of a nation to produce intelligent and honest leaders for future-making.Ironically, Pakistani neo-colonial systems have kept old and obsolete to run the country. After 50 years of corrupt history, Pakistan is back to most hated and indicted criminals – the known traitors as leaders with the help of a few Generals. Nations cease to exist when educated people of new generations who could have replaced the old and redundant guards leave the country and never return to build the nation. Young educated generations embark on migrating to Europe or America and never come back.

Wherever Generals bring coups, nations opt to conflicts, deaths and ultimate destruction of civility. Generals and Judges do not develop nations or civilizations but educated, thinking hubs and people of knowledge and vision. Today, the nation is crippled with catastrophic events of insecurity, non-productivity, mismanagement and socioeconomic and political exploitation. They view “power” and “Pakistan” as their own property. They are the wrong people, with wrong thinking and doing the wrong things.

Imran Khan inherited a highly corrupt infested culture of political governance. Although Khan spoke of moral and intellectual values and nation-building, he did very little to support that agenda. Khan could have arranged evidence-based legal prosecution of Sharif brothers, Zardari and others for corruption, killings and stolen wealth but failed to do so. He did not kill anybody nor robbed any banks and political governance was infested with corrupt figures of the past. Please see by this author: “Pakistan in Search of Freedom and Security”, Uncommon Thought Journal and Global Research: 10/20/22, and “Pakistan, Planned Political Chaos: Imran Khan a Victim of Hope for the Future”, Global Research: 11/06/2022; “Pakistan Striving for Its Soul.” 8/23

The besieged and morally inept few Generals using Sharif brothers will curb any open investigation into their alleged crimes and dismantle public institutions of accountability for a fair and just national election. The few Generals and Sharif brothers are egomaniacs with an overwhelming pathological urge for political power to distort and reject the will and aspirations of the people of Pakistan striving for political change. Tyranny is always powerless and transitory.  Imran Khan  and some 20,000 of his party  supporters have been imprisoned under false pretext of political vengeance and to pave the way for another opening to the crime riddled Sharif family. Is there a hope for justice to the cause of the masses? A reconstruction and overhaul of the law and justice system and non-intervention by the Generals into politics and transfer of political power to the majority elected leader and party.  It is a long way to build a working democracy in Pakistan. To safeguard the future of national freedom, the few Generals and top Judges should be tried for violations of the Constitution, human rights, arrests of innocent masses and fake cases against Khan at the ICJ and ICC, the Hague? The possibility is there for public legal accountability including a firing squad to cleanse the stinking garbage.

Pakistan needs an urgent navigational change but few Generals and judges are part of the problem.The current state of Pakistani affairs reflects a complete societal breakdown and march towards self-annihilation. Despite the hollow claims of a few Generals, no moral and ethical behavior is seen in the sudden and inexplicable plunge to human wickedness highlighting the affairs of the besieged nation. They would claim democracy at work when the majority winning party (PTI) is being blocked to form the next legitimate government and masses are outraged and oppose the Generals and Judges lacking respect, professional integrity and impartiality to serve the nation. The new generations of conscientious Pakistani will curse a few Generals and the Chief Justice for their alleged conspiracy to dehumanize the Islamic culture of rights and obligations of the masses. All they could get in return from the US covert operation is dry milk, used clothes and perhaps green cards to migrate to the US and keep their identities secret for reasons of pending justice and futuristic legal accountability. Have they not learned what happened to Saddam Hussein, Khadafi, Musharaf and the Shah of Iran?
