It seems that every other day someone else jumps onto the bandwagon of boycotting ‘Israel’ with the aim of deterring it from its plans of total annihilation in Palestine so that it may expand and consume its human and material resources.
We must not be overtaken by emotion and follow devoid of any forethought. Allah (swt) says: “Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.” (2:216)
It may seem as if the BDS movement is a movement defending Muslims and Al-Aqsa, however Allah (swt) is telling us that there are certain things that may seem from appearance that they are good but in fact they are bad.
We should already know that every problem man faces in life, Allah (swt) has given its solution via the beloved Messenger of Allah (saw). The issue of Palestine, the Muslims and Al-Aqsa is an issue for the entire Ummah. Therefore we should seek the solution from Islam, and this solution is the permanent solution.
We can quite clearly see that the Muslims in Palestine do not have the capability to remove the occupation and therefore the responsibility is placed on the surrounding Muslims, a duty of sufficiency. However the barrier to such liberation is the lack of unity, the grip of the despot leaders , the scarcity of understanding and ultimately the absence of an Imam (Caliph) to lead the Ummah.
The BDS movement creates a false sense of relief for the Ummah, and inaction from international powers and organisations. The facts show us that it is the Americans and the Zionists within congress are those who break-even the balances of ‘Israel’. Every year the aid is increased to cover any lack of finance for the previous year and the money spent on destroying the Muslims in Palestine.
Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. To date, the United States has provided Israel $124.3 billion (current, or non-inflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance
It goes on to state a number of other agreements that see ‘Israel’ receiving aid which the BDS movement could only dream of reaching its numbers. The annual FMF (Foreign Military Finance) is now increasing by 1 billion dollars.
Israeli media sources have said that the United States and Israel have held “preliminary” discussions over future military assistance with Israel seeking between $4.2 billion and $4.5 billion in annual FMF.
Is this increase in aid for ‘Israel’ worth it for the Americans? Well of course! Why you ask?
- It nullifies nations from seeking justice on behalf of the Palestinians through international law.
- Allows the politicians in ‘Israel’ to stoke up hatred between the ‘Zionists and the others’, creating an “us and them” mentality, to push through draconian laws and further slaughter of Palestinian Muslims in cold blood without warrant or accountability.
- Gives the Zionist congress in America further reason to increase their support for the illegal entity, and thus bankrolling any new military development for defending their ‘homeland’.
- Allows the U.S. to test out its latest advancements in military technology against the Muslims who are unarmed and unequipped.
The longer we stay idle on this oppression and seek justice from other than Islam, the humiliation will continue and our noses will be rubbed in the dirt on the Day of Judgement while those who have been martyred in Jerusalem, West Bank, Gaza and all over, shall get the justice they deserve, Paradise.
“We were the most humiliated people on earth and Allah gave us honour through Islam. If we ever seek honour through anything else, Allah will humiliate us again.” Umar ibn al Khattab (ra).
