AL QUDS : HEART OF ISLAMIC UNITY 
Zionists of all stripes have unholy plans for the Holy Land
https://crescent.icit-digital.org/articl...amic-unity

At the heart of Islam’s mission is tawhid, the concept of absolute, indivisible divine Oneness. Before Allah’s (swt) revelation to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), Jews and Christians had strayed from this teaching, which was at the core of all of the messages of all of the countless prophets sent to humanity. Jews fell into the error of seeing the one and only God as merely their own tribal idol — one god among many. They have stubbornly continued to confuse their tribal identity with the universal divine Creator. Christians, for their part, fell into the error of confusing the Prophet ‘Isa (a) with the one unique God. This led to such erroneous doctrines as the trinity and, later, secular humanism, the false worship of the merely human.

Just five years after the death of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Muslim armies defeated the Byzantines, and Khalifah ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab formally liberated al-Quds. The seemingly improbable Muslim liberation of Jerusalem/al-Quds was made possible by the sectarianism, mutual persecutions, and oppressions that had become endemic under the Byzantines. Christians persecuted Christians based on arcane sectarian dogmas. Christians persecuted Jews; Jews persecuted Christians (and slaughtered tens of thousands of them when Persian conquests gave them the chance). The Byzantine emperor who presided over all this strife, and indeed contributed to it, taxed his subjects into penury.

For these and other reasons, the Muslim liberation of al-Quds was welcomed or tolerated by a significant portion of the Byzantine population. These Jewish and Christian sympathizers, who viewed the coming of Islam as liberation from oppression, were proven right when the new Muslim rulers proceeded to live simply, lower taxes, and enforce religious toleration. The Muslims soon set to work rebuilding al-Masjid al-Aqsa, and a few short years later, the magnificent Dome of the Rock, which has stood as a symbol of divine unity — and as Islam’s greatest historical and architectural monument — ever since.

Muslim stewardship of Jerusalem/ al-Quds has existed almost as long as the religion of Islam itself. It is a symbol of tawhid in the realm of earthly affairs. Muslims, professing divine Oneness while tolerating and protecting other faiths, have for the most part proved just and able guardians of the holy city and its sacred sites.

Only two bloody historical interludes have interrupted Muslim stewardship of the Holy Land: the Medieval Christian crusades, and today’s ongoing Zionist genocide. Both of these two ill-fated ventures represent blasphemous betrayals of the perpetrators’ own core religious values. Christians claim to follow a prophet known as the Prince of Peace — a prophet who taught absolute non-attachment to worldly power and material goods. Yet the Crusaders took greed and indiscriminate mass murder to new levels of barbarism. The nominally Christian Crusaders, on their way to the Holy Land, massacred Jewish communities while sparing a few survivors from the banking elites, who (at swordpoint) taught the Crusaders the fine arts of usury. The result was the world’s first international “Christian” usury syndicate, the Knights Templar. Then when they arrived in Jerusalem/al-Quds, the Crusaders massacred all of the inhabitants they could find — men, women, and children alike. As Karen Armstrong writes in Jerusalem: One City, Three Faiths, The streets literally ran with blood. “Piles of heads, hands, and feet were to be seen,” says the Provençal eyewitness Raymond of Aguiles. He felt no shame: the massacre was a sign of the triumph of Christianity, especially on the Haram, “If I tell the truth it will exceed your powers of belief. So let it suffice to say this much, at least, that in the Temple and the Porch of Solomon, men rode in blood up to their knees and bridle reins. Indeed, it was a just and splendid judgment of God that this place should be filled with the blood of unbelievers since it had suffered so long from their blasphemies.”

In the wake of US President Trump’s announcement about the status of Jerusalem, a pro-justice protester holds a banner as he marches toward the US embassy in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 12-8-2017. All across the Muslim world, in particular, protests decrying the new US policy spontaneously erupted. However, sadly, even weeks after the announcement was made, no majority Muslim country in an official capacity has severed diplomatic or economic ties with the US — just another indicator of the disconnect between the hearts of the people and the loyalties of their rulers.

Today’s even bloodier Jewish-Zionist conquest and ethnic cleansing of the Holy Land — which, like the Crusades, has been perpetrated with the help of an international usury syndicate — follows the Crusader example of betraying the invaders’ own core religious principles. Judaism has always taught that the Jewish “return” to the Holy Land would be accomplished by God, not man. Heretics like Shabtai Tsvi and Jacob Frank taught that Jews should make it happen themselves, rather than waiting for God; but they were satanists, not Jews, and their teachings were repudiated by a consensus of rabbinical authorities. This rejection of Zionism as a satanic heresy remained central to majoritarian Judaism until the 1940s. It was only after World War II that the shock effect of German crimes against Jews jolted the global Jewish community into relinquishing this central tenet of its religion and embracing the crimes of Zionism. Today, a small remnant of faithful Jews, Naturei Karta, upholds the traditional Jewish faith; while the vast majority of those who call themselves Jews have retreated from that faith, many of them embracing one variety or another of Zionist idolatry.

Today, the 9/11-instigated 32-million-Muslim genocide against Israel’s enemies, alongside recent attempts to secure total Zionist hegemony over Jerusalem/al-Quds, have brought us to a level of barbarism, division, and strife far beyond that of the medieval Crusades. The Holy City, long a symbol of unity-in-diversity under Muslim rule, has become an emblem of hatred and disunity under Zionism. Ironically, this is happening at a moment when communications technologies have brought the world together, allowing us all to witness the chaos as it unfolds.

How should Muslims react to this appalling situation? The key concept is unity. We must remain devoted to tawhid and work for unity on the pan-Islamic and human levels. We must make every effort to unite with all fellow Muslims — and with justice-loving non-Muslims as well — in defense of al-Quds. Differences of race, language, nationality, and religious school of thought should be de-emphasized and put on the back burner as we come together to defend the Holy Land.

Al-Masjid al-Aqsa is built on the site where the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) ascended through the heavens during his night journey to the Divine Presence. On the way he had friendly meetings with the earlier prophets including Musa, considered by Jews the founder of Judaism, and ‘Isa (a), considered by Christians the founder of Christianity. Al-Masjid al-Aqsa thus represents the coming together, in peaceful self-submission to the one God, of the founding figures of the three main branches of Middle Eastern monotheism… and by extension, the coming together in friendship of all monotheists.

This is not the vision of Zionism. The Jewish Zionist movement openly professes its aim to destroy al-Masjid al-Aqsa and build a blood sacrifice temple in its place. The completion of their blood sacrifice temple, they believe, will coincide with the arrival of a Zionist Messiah to rule the world, imposing global Jewish-Zionist hegemony, from that site. The Christian Zionist movement has a slightly different aim. They believe that by building the blood sacrifice temple, Zionists will “force God’s hand” and compel Him to send Jesus(a) back to earth to wage nuclear war and kill all Jews along with the majority of the rest of the human race. Obviously both the Jewish Zionist and Christian Zionist plans for the Holy Land are unholy, indeed satanic. They aim at strife and division, not peace and unity. They will insha’Allah be defeated in our lifetime, and Jerusalem/al-Quds will reassume its place as a beautiful symbol of peace, friendship, and unity on earth under the One God.

US RECOGNIZES JERUSALEM AS CAPITAL OF ZIONIST STATE
The December 6 announcement by US President Donald Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the “capital” of Israel is a major step forward for the Zionist project since the infamous Balfour declaration of 1917, whereby the British created Israel in historical Palestine from the rib of terrorism.  A primary objective of the Zionist Project, which emanated from Europe ,was to occupy and control Palestine, and to dominate the region as a bastion of Western civilization. This colonial project received the support of the white supremacist government in the US, and right-wing extremist parties in Europe.

The outcry by the aggrieved in the Arab and Muslim World and their pleas for justice will be of no effect. The rulers of the regional Arabian regimes are more concerned in salvaging and securing their illegitimate thrones and power base rather than worry about the fate of Jerusalem where al-Masjid al-Aqsa, the first qiblah of the Muslims is located.  Most of them have bought into the fraudulent US and Saudi-created “threat” that Iran allegedly poses, relegating the just cause of the hapless Palestinians to total irrelevance. The plan now is to form this grand alliance against the resistance movements and Iran, the only bulwark against their hegemony.

In this endeavour the US and Israel have bought the cooperation of the young, ambitious, murderous, and reckless Saudi crown prince, Bin Salman (BS). His profile fits neatly with the erratic and war-mongering nature of Trump and Netanyahu.  The complicity of the Palestinian Authority with Israel in pursuing the illusion of a “peace process” has come to a dead end. The fraud of a “two-state” solution is glaringly evident. There is no alternative but to return to the time-honored and internationally sanctioned armed resistance against the heinous oppression by Israel.

For the Zionists there will be no Israel without Jerusalem. And there will be no Jerusalem without the building of the Temple of Solomon inside the 35-acre al-Aqsa Masjid compound referred to as al-Haram al-Sharif, or the Noble Sanctuary, by Muslims, and as the Temple Mount by Jews. Theodor Herzl, an Austrian Jew, developed in 1896 the ethnic-cleansing racist colonial ideology of Zionism. Its main goal was the establishment of the Greater Israel Project in the heart of the Arab and Muslim world, extending from the Nile River in Egypt to the Euphrates River in Iraq, as a Jewish-only homeland for what is termed the “Jewish People.” The racism of political Zionism is a perfectly coherent system that inspires all the laws and practices of Israel. It encompasses all the odious characteristics of colonialism including ethnic cleansing, regular massacres, bombardment of entire civilian populations, wars of aggression, dispossession, exile, systematic ra-cism, apartheid, and destabilisation.

US fraudster-in-chief, Donald Trump (left), used to communicating in slogans and vituperations for his criminal overlords, said that Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is a great deal for the Israelis and a great deal for the Palestinians. What he meant to say is “We have the power to do whatever we want and see it however we want; and the rest of you can go and eat crow.”

With a massive infusion of financial, diplomatic and military help from the colonial powers the Zionists accomplished this project to establish the state of Israel on colonized Palestinian land after the genocide and ethnic-cleansing of a majority of Palestinian Arabs, both Christian and Muslim. Significantly for the Zionist Project, the disintegration of the Ottoman Sultanate fragmented Islam’s Arab heartland into some 40 weak and dependent territories and oil-rich protectorates.


Jerusalem, which houses the Aqsa compound, belonged to the international community under the administration of the UN. It was granted this special status for its importance to the three Abrahamic faiths.

The illegal Israeli control of East Jerusalem, including the Old City, which Israel occupied in 1967, violates several principles of international law, which outlines that an occupying power does not have sovereignty in the territory it occupies. In fact, Article 42 of the 1907 Hague Regulations (HR) states that a “territory is considered occupied when it is actually placed under the authority of the hostile army. The occupation extends only to the territory where such authority has been established and can be exercised.”

According to their common Article 2, the four Geneva Conventions of 1949 apply to any territory occupied during international hostilities. They also apply in situations where the occupation of state territory meets with no armed resistance. The UN Charter and the law known as jus ad bellum regulate the legality of any particular occupation. Once a situation exists that factually amounts to an occupation the law of occupation applies — whether or not the occupation is considered lawful.

Therefore, for the applicability of the law of occupation, it makes no difference whether an occupation has received Security Council approval, what its aim is, or indeed whether it is called an “invasion,” “liberation,” “administration,” or “occupation.” As the law of occupation is primarily motivated by humanitarian considerations, it is solely the facts on the ground that determine its application. The Zionist entity claims to derive its legitimacy from the UN General Assembly vote of November 1947. Yet since its illegal implantation in Palestine, the Zionists have done everything to repudiate every law, every UN resolution, whether passed by the Security Council or the General Assembly, in their relentless drive of colonization. And this process involves the dispossession of Palestinians from their lands, including in Jerusalem.

Palestinians in the holy city (Jerusalem), who number around 400,000, hold only permanent residency status, not citizenship, despite being born there — in contrast with Jews who were not born in the city. And, since 1967, Israel has embarked on a quiet deportation of the city’s Palestinians by imposing virtually impossible conditions for them to fulfill so as to maintain their residency status. Israel has also built at least 12 fortified Jewish-only illegal colonies in East Jerusalem, housing some 200,000 Israelis, while rejecting Palestinian building permits and demolishing their homes as punishment when they build their homes to prevent their collapse. The Zionists dub them “illegal.”

The city of Jerusalem is very important to Muslims, with a rich history intimately linked with prophetic history. Al-Masjid al-Aqsa holds immense significance in Islamic religious tradition and Muslims maintained the sacredness of this city in the full sense of the word, including maintaining the tolerant multi-religious and multi-faith character of Jerusalem.

The Zionists have distorted and misrepresented the history of the region established by Islam over the past 1,300 years. They have overturned the demography of Palestine, controlling and Judaizing the Old City and East Jerusalem as a whole.  The Trump declaration recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital shatters the illusion of the US as an “honest broker” interested in a just resolution of the illegal Israeli colonization of the Holy Land, the facade of an endless “peace process,” and the two-state solution.
 
The Zionist Project has taken a step forward in entrenching Israel as the forward base for Western imperialism intent on dominating the Muslim world. An intifa?ah (uprising) against the oppressors, not only in Colonized Palestine, but also against the illegitimate Arabian rulers, is inevitable.
