America Supports Israeli War Beyond Gaza onto the Arab World by Dr Mahboob A Khawaja

Wars are integral to American and Israeli formative history and now they are engaged in “genocidal acts of vengeance” against the civilians of Gaza, widely accused by NGOs and global humanity. Virtually inexhaustible daily bombing spares no life, no functional hospitals, no UNRWA schools and no respect for the International Humanitarian Law or the Geneva Conventions. Israeli PM Netanyahu , an egoistic  person lacking moral and intellectual capacity, cares about his own political survival unleashing violent assumptions of hatred, animosities and killings of Palestinians – a nation no matter how normal claims to be, cannot function as normal beings to co-exist with their own self and make any positive contributions to societal normalcy. Many Jewish organizations (“Jews for Peace” and “Jews against Zionism”) and others across the US and Europe committed and stood for peace and global brotherhood. They are all calling for an immediate ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. Dr. Ludwig Watzal, a journalist and editor in Bonn, explains:”How Modern is Israel? “Zionism has Little to do with Judaism” and see Israel Shahak and Prof Michel Chossudovsky:“Greater Israel”The Zionist Plan for the Middle East.

And killing of innocent people is prohibited by God’s 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 peopleeven in the course of a legitimate military engagement.’

America and Israel view all the Arab States as vulnerable to besiegement and political supremacy. Living in the fantasy of time and power, Arab-Muslim states have no armies or leaders to protect the national interest of Palestine. The PLO is devoid of intelligent leadership and Israeli forces have free hand to raid or kill Palestinians across the occupied territories. America and Israel have working plans to conquer more Arab lands -Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia and others to resettle the Palestinians and put a finished answer on Palestine as a future State. Would the Arab-Muslim leaders rethink outside the imperial box to plan for a navigational change in relationships with the US and its military hegemony? The time, history and future generations of conscientious people will curse the so-called tribal agents for their wickedness and greed to be kings and queens and princes and nothing else to make their presence in the global arena of emerging conflicts.

War on Gaza is a stigma of political survival for PM Netanyahu and the war cabinet while several thousands of Israeli citizens demonstrate in Tel Aviv asking  for peace with Palestinians and a safe return of 134 hostages still in Gaza. Engaged in deceit of triumphalism, Netanyahu Government is not listening to voices of reason and truth. While the Israeli Ultra Nationalist groups continuously violate the sanctity of Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Arab-Muslim leaders are simply the spectators watching the provocations.

While the Arab leaders making melodramatic and misleading claims of security and peace with Israel and the West, the region is a highly militarized and destabilized landscape of continuous conflicts. To subdue and humiliate the “camel jockeys” of the oil producing Arab world, now the US exports wars, weapons and poisonous thoughts to divide and conquer the Arabian Peninsula. Historically, diverse tribal Arabs were united as an “Ummah” – One Nation by Islam but European colonialists assigned sectarian identities to divide the geography and history of Arab civilization. To change the future, America and Israel needed a political challenge to stop the war on Gaza but it was nowhere to be seen on the Arabian leadership horizon. For too long, Arab leaders breathe oxygen in moral and intellectual decadence and a delusional fantasy of oil-run economic prosperity.

Intelligent people always heed to rational advice but American and Israeli  warmongering and killings are contrary to the Nature of Things. The Gazan landscape is filled with deaths and destruction which could have been avoided if reason and honest policies were implied to the crisis. The time and opportunities call for rethinking and new ideas to reject violence and vengeance as contrary to the nature of humanity, peace and intellect. To avoid most dreadful tragedies in the making, we must reject the tyranny of war as a means to solve political problems and demand a return to persuasive communication and dialogue for conflict management and peace-making.
