Greater Israel and the Muslim Governments

[This is a continuation of the previous article Israel's Old War]

An Amīr al-Mu’minīn, a Sultān, a monarch, a military dictator, the Guardian of the Haramain, and the Rahbar jointly, together with all their armed forces and diplomatic capabilities could not stop tiny Israel from injuring more than 100,000 innocent people, displacing 1.8 million people, demolishing their homes, and killing 19,000, the vast majority, if not all, amongst whom including the dead, were unarmed men, women, children, and the elderly. This is because all of them, except Iran, are on the wrong side of the alliance. Their diplomatic record, the Abraham Accords, and the Mediterranean Dialogue are proofs of their choice of alliance. Saudi Arabia since its inception and Turkey since the Truman Doctrine, at least in terms of modern post-war history, have consistently been on the wrong side of the alliance.

Israel had set the stage, especially with the Abraham Accords, before commencing on this well-planned massacre. Israel’s only failure was Syria with the unexpected intervention of Russia into the war. The whole stretch of North Africa was won over to their side with NATO’s Mediterranean Dialogue, not the least diplomatic as it sounds. 

Israel now, to her west, has no threat until Morocco; its safety is assured. The north of the Mediterranean as well as the Bosporus consists of NATO member states. The East, with agreeable Jordan and half-destroyed Iraq do not serve as threats. The only potential threats, in geographical terms, that Israel faces are Iran and Afghanistan. Pakistan remains the loyal base for NATO’s line of air communication. Richard Casey, at that time still a British diplomat, commented in support of Pakistan’s independence, “Northwest and Northeast Pakistan lie across the track of our major imperial line of air communication,” that is, when Britain withdrew from India, Pakistan as a separate state, Muslim or otherwise, independent from India, was essential to maintain that air communication, in case India threatened Anglo-American interests. Churchill was impressed with Casey. Today Pakistan remains so, in case India threatens Anglo-American-Israeli interests. India is far from threatening Western-Israeli interests, and Pakistan is far from disloyalty to the original military cause it served. Despite the impossibility of India-Pakistan rapprochement, both states serve western-Israeli military interests, Pakistan more than India since it forms part of the air artery for the control of Eurasia.

All of the North African and Middle Eastern states, Muslim by name, were absorbed into the Israeli-American Großraum, to use Carl Schmitt’s term. Collectively, they are not only unable to stop the carnage in Gazza today but have also utterly refused to facilitate the migration of these innocent people who cry day and night for help and assistance. One cannot but hear the words of the Qur’ān in their cry and plea:

رَبَّنَا أَخْرِجْنَا مِنْ هَٰذِهِ الْقَرْيَةِ الظَّالِمِ أَهْلُهَا وَاجْعَلْ لَنَا مِنْ لَدُنْكَ وَلِيًّا وَاجْعَلْ لَنَا مِنْ لَدُنْكَ نَصِيرًا

 Lord! Take us out of this city whose people and leaders are oppressors. Grant us from your presence a protector and grant us from Your presence a helper.

 They cannot facilitate migration because migration for these surrounding states, means the end of the Palestinian cause. That is a direct result of their belief in American Palestinianism. Due to this disastrous political belief in self-determination and the people’s will, children in Gazza and the West Bank are trained to throw stones at military tanks and say in interviews, “I will never leave my home in Gazza. I will go back home; we are tired of the Zionist occupation.” People are made to believe in the lie that Israel has forbidden them to leave the land. For decades Israel has been trying to convince Egypt and other Arab states to facilitate their migration. It is the Arabs who have believed in the American whisper who refuse to open their territory to them.  

Scholars of Islam sitting in America and the West have fully absorbed Edward Said’s discourse of defending the Palestinian cause and condemning Israel’s oppression. In fact, it is not their discourse, it is the discourse of American liberal democracy, freedom and human rights. They want to defend and uphold the right to self-determination no matter how many lives are lost. Their words and their aid only spur on the Palestinians to continue their struggle. This will continue for many more generations since more of these innocent people affected by all the 75 years of oppression, this latest being the worst of them all, will always be fertile to perpetuate their resolve for armed struggle, freedom and independence, simply because they and their families have been oppressed.  

If the world sends them aid instead of evacuating them from a predatory government that believes they are cockroaches and grasshoppers, they are turning the other side to the oppression and not saving lives. Sending aid, in other words, mean: Be patient, we will send you whatever you need but you remain there and bear with all the killing, pain and suffering.

The strategy of oppression by means of both the religious and political doctrines of Greater Israel, as the state expands, swallowing Gazza and the West Bank, will continue until the day comes when the stones in the Holy Land will speak.

Antonio Guterres foolishly exposed himself, in continuity of American Palestinianism, in front of the international media when he said, “We will not give up!” The bird-brain does not know that it means exactly what he had said earlier that this war is turning Gazza “into a graveyard.” Having held the position of UNHCR from 2005 to 2015, he fails to lead the observant world to believe that he is speaking out against Israel on behalf of the Palestinians. If there is an expert who can facilitate the migration of the Palestinians and set up homes for them outside of Palestine, it is him. He has no concern for Palestinian lives as he had no concern for the 150,000 innocent Tamil lives of Sri Lanka. It was while he held that position, that Sri Lanka massacred 40,000 Tamils in the month of May 2009 alone. The number of casualties today in Palestine is incomparable to that number in May 2009. His visit to Sri Lanka did not change anything nor did it help the Tamils. His visit to the Rafah border crossing did not change anything nor did it help the Palestinians. He it is who is turning Gazza into a graveyard. We will not give up?! Give up what? Give up dying?!

The political experiment of the Palestinian state is now over. Israel has geared up for Greater Israel. In Islamic Eschatology, we call it Pax Judaica. Those who have read Jerusalem in the Qur’ān, by Sheikh Imran Hosein, will remember the lengthy hadīth narrated by an-Nawwās ibn Sam’ān about Dajjal recorded in the Sahih of Imam Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “…He (Dajjal) will remain on earth for forty days, a day like a year, a day like a month, a day like a week, and all the rest of his days will be like your days…” This prophetic statement is a difficult part of the hadīth, but Sheikh Imran Hosein convincingly argued in the book that a day like a year refers to Pax Britannica, a day like a month refers to Pax Americana, and a day like a week refers to Pax Judaica. Twenty years later, events unfolding today confirms his interpretation to be correct. Those who refuse to accept it cannot explain why except that they want to adhere to linguistic and logical explanations offered centuries ago.

Those who have read Jerusalem in the Qur’ān will also remember that the book explains using the Qur’ān how the Jews could not have returned to the Holy Land reclaiming it as their own without the release of Gog and Magog. He argued in that book that the town mentioned in the 95th verse of Surah al-Anbiyā refers to Jerusalem, and Gog and Magog is that very Judeo-Christian alliance that brought the Jews back to the Holy Land to reclaim it as their own two thousand years after they were expelled by Allah Most High Himself. They were expelled because they were granted the Holy Land on the condition of belief and righteous conduct, but they violated those Divine conditions, committed fasad, and like Iblīs sought superiority over the rest of mankind. They boasted that they had crucified the Messiah, charged his mother with an abominable sin even while they witnessed miracles with their very own eyes. They made riba halal while it was made haram to them. They killed the prophets Zakariyyā and Yahyā alayhimussalam and committed other egregious evils that Allah punished them and expelled them.

However, He warned, subhanahu wa ta’ala, that He will one day bring them back to the Holy Land in a motley crowd. He also warned that it will be Gog and Magog, by His permission, who will bring them back to the Holy Land. 

They returned, the state of Israel was established, and has now become a nuclear power waging war against an innocent people defying the world’s vast majority, and yet the scholars of Islam all around the world refuse to accept that Gog and Magog have been released. Their deficient methodology has failed miserably in explaining these verses of the Qur’ān. Their explanations simply do not make sense. Any thinking person who reads Jerusalem in the Qur’ān and then compares the explanation of the verses offered there with what the rest of Islamic scholarship continues to repeat from books of old, will understand the deficient methodology in modern Islamic scholarship.

Until the scholars of Islam accept the following, they will continue to remain ignorant of the fiqh of international politics today and of the appropriate response from the Qur’ān against this world order: 

That Gog and Magog are human beings, they are already released, this is now a Gog and Magog world order, they are those who brought the Jews back to the Holy Land, they broke away from their own communities and established an entirely new Judeo-Christian community, and they cannot be destroyed until Nabi Isa alayhissalam returns and Allah intervenes in causing their destruction.

Though they cannot be destroyed, they were contained by Dhul Qarnain and there we have many a lesson for international politics today. But alas, the scholars of Islam, with their deficient methodology, refuse to accept that Gog and Magog have been released let alone think how to respond to their fasad. Dhul Qarnain is directly related to the subject of Rūm, but we cannot address it now. 

Let us return to the war in Gazza. This war is a sign that Dajjal’s “day like a week” has commenced.  

Only a year ago, Russia set the example that the only way to stop a bloody aggressive military policy and oppression against an innocent people is a military response. It is a thorn that can remove a thorn. It is only after the commencement of the military response that Russia held a referendum to legally secure the territories of the Donbass. The two deeds against the guidance in the Qur’ān that these Muslim states have willingly committed, and they will pay the price for it, are that they have refused to facilitate migration to save lives (due to, and I will repeat, American Palestinianism), and they have chosen to be part of a Judeo-Christian alliance.

Democracy has taught the peoples of the world to believe in the Rousseauean fantasy of marching, demonstrating and demanding the government to act. Today we have come to know it is a lie and it works only when those in power want it to work. It has become a mere show of assembly both in Tel Aviv where Israelis are demonstrating demanding the government of Israel to act on the hostage exchange, as well as in the rest of the world where people are demanding their respective governments to force Israel to a ceasefire. Perhaps the most acceptable demonstration could be the one held in Antalya where the people demanded Turkiye to shut down the NATO military base. But it did not work the same. The best of these shows was the Sultan’s concert in the name of celebrating the Palestinian state.

There is not a leader who dares to say to these unruly masses who turn about in the direction of the western media wind:

“You common cry of curs! Whose breath I hate

As reek o’ th’ rotten fens, whose loves I prize

As the dead carcasses of unburied men

That do corrupt my air, I banish you;

And here remain with your uncertainty.”

There is not a leader who dares to say to them: 

“Let me have war, say I: it exceeds peace as far as day does night; it's spritely, waking, audible, and full of vent. Peace is a very apoplexy, lethargy; mulled, deaf, sleepy, insensible; a getter of more bastard children than war's a destroyer of men.”

[Shakespeare, Coriolanus]

Such a war is the only way to punish Israel and to deter her from further killing, now and in the future. A ceasefire is not enough. There must be punishment for this crime. Israel must face the consequences of such brutal audacity. The policy of such a war must be to save Palestinian lives, not destroy Israel, because that cannot be done. The prophecies of Pax Judaica and the Dajjal will be fulfilled. However, Israel may be all-too-mighty but is certainly not all-mighty. Israel’s plots and plans have failed and will continue to fail despite her destiny to rule the world for some time. A collective military response of the surrounding Muslim states will shock Israel and yet incapacitate her to respond in like manner because Israel too wants the Palestinians to migrate. Alas the Muslim states of the world are not willing to do that and rupture their alliance with Israel and the West; they are not willing to give up their capitalism and economic progress; capitalism and the western standard of civilisation have become part of their beliefs and actions.     

India set an example for Israel four years ago in Kashmir. However, Israel is not only concerned about Gazza and the West Bank to follow India’s example, she has other concerns too for Greater Israel. India learnt from Sri Lanka what not to do, but it is from India that Israel learnt what not to do. If Israel had done what India had done, with minimal bloodshed, no media coverage, and an instant annexation of Gazza with the deployment of Israel’s full armed troops, she will not be able to achieve Greater Israel in the near future. In fact, the truth is, the situation and terrain in Gazza not only does not allow it, but Israeli soldiers have no guts to enter Gazza the way the Indian armed forces entered into Kashmir.

This war is more advantageous to Israel including its media coverage despite world public opinion turning against Israel. Israel wants that. Israel wants the world to know who is now in charge of the Levant, correctly speaking, the heartland of the world. The governments in the region already know it, but the media coverage of the war is to now let the world know that a Pax Judaica is now replacing Pax Americana.

The head of Pax Judaica is now gradually emerging from the rubble in Gazza.

It is not long from now when Pax Judaica will rule the region and by extension dictate the rules of international engagement by sheer force. This is the end of democracy. With Greater Israel, the population that Israel seeks to rule over in her territory will not allow for democratic representative parliamentary government. The population of an oppressed Arab people will be the vast majority. This is the end of the politics of the majority, the end of the will of the people, the end of the politics of numbers, and the lie of the social contract.  

Israel has turned into the very catalyst for the decline and transformation of the American liberal world order into a new world order of Pax Judaica. This is the end of Pax Americana and the beginning of Pax Judaica. As America acted as the catalyst for the decline and transformation of Britain’s colonial world order, and facilitated the transition from Pax Britannica to Pax Americana, so is Israel now facilitating the transition from Pax Americana to Pax Judaica. In fact, Israel is accelerating it.

With the declaration of Independence and the Monroe Doctrine, America acted against Britain’s colonial rule and then emerged as a superpower defending Britain. With the war in Gazza, Israel is acting against America’s liberal rules-based world order and will emerge as a world superpower defending America. The decline of Britain was necessary for America to replace Britain, and America was the very catalyst of the process. The decline of America is necessary for Israel to replace America, and Israel is the very catalyst of the process. This is the paradox of history.   

Let these Muslim governments listen to the words of the Qur’ān. The ulama who have pledged their allegiance to the Western alliance are quiet. These Muslim states will never obey the words of the Qur’ān and take guidance from it, and yet someone must place this on record. Allah Most High has laid down in the Qur’ān the fundamental law of international relations in ākhir az-zamān: 

 يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَىٰ أَوْلِيَاءَ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ وَمَنْ يَتَوَلَّهُمْ مِنْكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ  إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ

 O you who have īmān do not take those Jews and Christians as your friends and allies, who are themselves friends and allies of each other. Whosoever from amongst you turns to them for friendship and alliance, they belong to them (and have departed from you). Surely Allah does not guide that community of oppressors.  [Surah al-Maidah: verse 51]

This verse is āyah muhkamah, it contains a prohibition and a warning, and no one could possibly have the evidence to suggest this verse is abrogated if such an argument is raised; it does not refer to all Jews and all Christians, and requires no interpretation (ta’weel); it only requires explanation (tafseer). It refers specifically to those Jews and Christians who broke away from their communities to form a Judeo-Christian alliance with a specific political mission. This verse confirms the validity of Carl Schmitt’s profound grasp of the friend/enemy distinction in his political treatise, The Concept of the Political. The translation of the above verse is Sheikh Imran Hosein’s and I have defended his translation in an essay that was published as Appendix 1 in his book Dajjal, The Qur’an and Awwal al-Zaman. The pdf is available in this link. All English translations of this verse reflect a clear error, not a linguistic error but an error that contradicts other verses of the Qur’ān as well as the historical record.

Those who have pledged their allegiance to a political leader, whether he is called the President, Sultan or Amīrul Mu’mineen must now consider whom that leader with those around him, has taken as his friends and allies. If that leader has joined the Judeo-Christian alliance, for example, NATO, or joined the Mediterranean dialogue, then if they continue to pledge their allegiance to him having knowledge of that, they have likewise become part of that Judeo-Christian alliance together with their leader. Such Muslims will now have to decide where they belong, or at least open their eyes so that they are not deceived.

There is now no question of a Hamas defeat or surrender. The day Israel commenced the war, Hamas was already defeated. The audacity of Hamas is its strategy to engage in a prisoner exchange no matter how many lives are sacrificed, no matter the complete destruction of their infrastructure and the displacement of the whole population, no matter how much suffering and pain inflicted on the elderly, women and children. They will have nothing less than a prisoner exchange. That is a betrayal of the Palestinian people at the cost of their lives for the establishment of a state that they do not know how it functions let alone possess the experience to operate and run. The surrounding Muslim states must not only punish Israel, they must punish Hamas too for perpetuating American Palestinianism.

Israel’s media show includes both sides of the story – the lies that the government of Israel is manufacturing in defense of their own military operations, as well as what they allow Palestinian journalists and commentators to broadcast in the international media against Israel. It does not matter which side we are on. Both sides are advantageous to Israel to achieve her greater objective of a new Israel without the Gaza and West Bank. They have hidden in their future geopolitical objectives to extend Greater Israel to reach the river of Egypt and the river of Euphrates. They have claimed that this was an unconditional Divine grant. They now speak only of Judea and Samaria. How they will attempt to achieve this remains to be known, whether by Lebensraum (fascist expansion of territory), Großraum (Israeli replacement of American dominance in the region) or perhaps even Verheißungsraum (with the new deceptive claim of fulfilling the promise of a divine right to rule the region with order, peace and justice).  

This is the end of democracy and the people’s will. This is the end of the liberal world order with all its international organisations. This is the end of Pax Americana. This war has announced Pax Judaica. Let the Muslims of the world turn to the Qur’ān to prepare for it and take guidance from the Qur’ān and know how to respond appropriately to oppression during Pax Judaica. This cannot be expected from the political leaders of the Muslim world because they have abandoned the Qur’ān for GDP. The ulama must not pledge their allegiance to them. They must warn them and teach them. But alas, even the scholars do not know the fiqh of international relations. They have spent too much time learning and teaching the fiqh of taharah, salat and other acts of worship, that if they do not dedicate time to turn to the Qur’ān for guidance to respond to Pax Judaica, they will face the consequences together with their leaders who are misleading them.  

Let their leaders remember that Allah, Most High, said:

وَمَنْ يَتَوَلَّهُمْ مِنْكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ  إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ

Whosoever turns to them, belongs to them and certainly Allah does not guide that community of oppressors.
