Palestine – Israel Aggression Against Gaza

Israeli authorities ongoing aggression having claimed at least 600 and more lives and still counting is deeply regrettable and deserves denouncement.

Israel pursuing violence to exert authority over Palestinians in the occupied territory has no limits and the oppression since the establishment of Israel in 1948 continues until now.

Whenever Israel is at odds with political development in Palestine, Israel’s leadership immediate response from is military attacks and intensified ground raids not even sparing the place of worship – al Aqsa mosque in al Quds, East Jerusalem.

Similarly Israel’s unilateral blockade on Gaza from 2007 has crippled Gaza’s economy with life made impossible for the citizens in the beleaguered enclave.

The sanctions are not confined to trade activities alone but also extended towards livelihoods with restrictions on fishermen in coastal Gaza.

Gaza fishermen inadvertent crossing beyond demarcated territorial waters dealt with extreme measures ranging from apprehension, prolonged detention to random shooting in the speedboat chase threatening the fishing community in Gaza.

Israel’s routine airstrikes followed by persistent ground incursion is reprehensible.

Again the belligerence with impunity on international watch and Arab league silence imply complicity and endorsement of crimes against defenseless and voiceless people in Gaza and the rest of Palestine.

Israel and allies justifying military option and tactics as self-defense is baseless and confirms utter disregard for Palestinian lives and human rights in the occupied state.

In the absence of collective responsibility to condemn Israeli authorities provocation and use of force the innocent civilians pay the price,

Israeli government issuing construction permits extending settlement activities in West Bank, al-Quds and now the military assault on Gaza clarifies the political paradox in the proclamation of Israel being the only democracy in the Middle East.

The fact of the matter is the architects behind the policy against Palestinians promote subjugation through occupation and suppression of political freedom for regional dominance and influence via proxy representation in most parts of the world under the guise of democracy.

Israeli government with allies – United States and Britain defending the indefensible offense in Gaza speaks volume on the kind of democracy prevalent in respective domains and arguably raise questions on the legitimacy of the power enforcing gross human rights violation.

Ever since the formation of unity government in Ramallah emerging from bilateral consensus between Hamas and Fatah leaderships,

Israel along with United States having vehemently opposed the unification is currently engaged in turning Gaza into the playground to test defense stockpiles and innovative technology in Israel’s possession.

Showing no remorse for the killings of children, women and youths in Gaza, the leaderships in Israel, United States, Britain and alike in favor of present violence demonstrates political characteristics in contradiction to assertion as democracy worthy of emulation.

Unwillingness to accept political progress in Palestine is the sign of insecurity and frustration over declining supremacy.

The nuclear state Israel’s defiance to international call to cease Palestinian oppression only isolates the former and,

Global perspective on this issue evidently identifies the occupier as the problem.

Israeli authorities persecution of Palestinians – Gaza in particular targeted at every opportunity is self-detrimental and indicative of the beginning of the end of sponsors with unmitigated disaster arising from reckless policy.

United States veto at the U.N. Security Council on Palestinian issue is predominantly responsible for status quo.

Had United States adopted fairness and objectivity reflecting democratic values and respect for all lives rather than selective protection on humanitarian and political affairs during UNSC resolutions,

The Palestinian and global crises could be contained and resolved in humanity’s interest.

Instead the failed strategy is the preference, expecting to prevail in the misguided agenda.

Israel and allies credibility is directly linked with recognition of Palestinians as members of human race and acknowledgment of Palestinian rights to exist in a free society.

United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) coming forward with every member state exercising sovereign right on unanimous approval to the establishment of Independent Palestine is the urgent requirement on Israeli Palestinian dispute settlement. 

The formal and official status to Palestinian statehood encompassing contentious and relevant matter is the key solution to Palestinian political struggle.

Israel renouncing violence for peaceful co-existence would guarantee stability and security to all in the otherwise volatile region.

Those instigating unrest and turmoil anywhere could not be democratic and the lack of tolerance to unity endangers global peace with inevitable adverse impact for the origin.

Israel’s ceasefire against Gaza and honoring Palestinian liberty with unconditional release of all detainees in detention centers, freezing settlers expansion in West Bank and demolition of Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem, withdrawal of Israeli forces from the occupied territory is paramount for positive outcome in the peace initiative on Israeli and Palestinian conflict.

Israel’s military might exacerbates Palestinian plight notwithstanding the egregious decisions affecting the source having exhausted the victims and global citizens patience on abuse of power and privilege.

Finally, Israeli authorities concern for own safety amid violent pursuits against residents in Gaza and remaining Palestine is entirely dependent on renunciation of obsolete dogma in appreciation for Palestinian and others freedom.

I offer my sincere condolences to bereaved families with prayers for those wounded in the unnecessary and unwanted warfare in Gaza.

May God bless the people seeking relief from suffering and expedite the new beginning marking the conclusion of terror causing turbulence.

Peace to all!

Thank you.
