Israel – Golan Heights Proclamation is Illegal and Illegitimate 

Padmini Arhant

United States administration led by President Donald Trump’s yet another gaffe on Israel’s behalf in declaring Syria’s Golan Heights as Israel’s territory is illegal and illegitimate.

Israel having forcefully seized and occupied the Syrian plateau – Golan Heights during the Six-day warfare in 1967 in the Middle East ever remains violation of Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Israel’s provocative incursion in 1967 aimed at unlawful invasion and occupation of foreign land that included the long disputed Palestine depriving Palestinians the right to statehood over seven decades until now isolate Israel’s aggressive policy.

Israel exerting authority on foreign nations’ territories along the borders with the state of Israel has attracted international condemnations thus far.

Israel’s misuse of close relations with United States, delegated as proxy at the defunct UNSC to veto any resolutions on Israel’s never ending territorial annexations whether they are related to globally denounced settlements expansion in Palestine’s West Bank or blockade on Gaza trade and survival means depriving the population the right to exist in their meager land has severely damaged Israel’s credibility as a reliable peace partner in the region.

Israel’s involvement in Syrian warfare as key coalition force along with United States and allies in aiding and abetting terror networks infiltration in Syria is predominantly responsible for immense casualties and humanitarian crisis posing a major challenge for western world in dealing with refugee problems at their shores with no relief for the victims affected in the eight years old United States and allies sponsored terror onslaught against Syria.

United States military aim to withdraw from Syria is similar to that of Afghanistan floated in the past decade with no sign of such event coming into fruition. Though President Donald Trump stated back in December 2018 the administration’s position to withdraw troops from both Syria and Afghanistan by April 2019, the internal and external forces reservations appears to obstruct White House plans in this regard leaving President Donald Trump’s commitment to United States tax payers funding the prolonged military presence in Syria, Afghanistan and elsewhere a mere rhetoric missing in fulfillment.

The military ventures in Syria and Afghanistan not barring Iraq since 2001 and continuing until today has drained United States economy at taxpayers expense that could have been utilized in addressing domestic requirements ranging from infrastructure to healthcare, education, scientific research and innovations besides invigorating job growth that are still well under electorate expectations.

United States tax payers dollars wasted in justifying the unjustifiable armed conflict through terror factions in Syria or for that matter against Pakistan’s ISI backed Taliban and fringe terror outfits in Afghanistan is a profound miscalculation and erroneous decision in the so-called war on terror resulting in deaths and destruction of lives denying these states the sovereign right to political stability and peaceful existence to focus on desperately needed economic development.

As for President Donald Trump’s unilateral agreement with Israel on the recent declaration of Syria’s Golan Heights and earlier the controversial gesture relocating United States embassy from Israel’s State capital Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in concurrence to Israel’s territorial extensions again much to international disapproval is unfortunate for such partisanship on partitions of foreign land is unacceptable and revokes any renewed entitlement in that respect.

Golan Heights is indisputably the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic regardless of constant maneuvering and reconfiguration of geopolitical landscape in that region i.e. Western Asia or the Middle East.

Likewise, reiterating previous stance on the issue of Jerusalem, the Holy City is symbolically and substantively the native domain shared among the entire population of diverse faiths and secular demography comprising not only Jews but also Arabs and muslims of different denominations within Islam as well as Christians and other indigenous, migrants and several groups domiciled in the ancient city.

Jerusalem belongs to all citizens and residents representing Israel, Palestine and other ethnic descent in that society unlike the unique disposition of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu heading the incumbent government facing tough election in the immediate future.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confronted with multiple corruption charges and massive dissatisfaction amongst Israeli electorate on domestic front adopting strategy to deflect public attention from local economic woes to foreign affairs reveals the leadership’s concern over the nearing electoral outcome.

As for United States, President Donald Trump’s peace doctrine witnessed with North Korea is welcoming and an appropriate measure easing tensions in Korean Peninsula. However, the policy maintained across the spectrum in other parts of the world without wavering and altering to suit allies unreasonable aspirations would provide credence to White House pledge to global peace and security.

The citizens in war torn Syria, Afghanistan and other regions deserve permanent peace and opportunity to rebuild their nations without having to deal with consistent threat and irrational claims on their territory by neighbors near and far.

Thank you.

Pakistan – JeM Masood Azhar

March 13, 2019

Pakistan – JeM Masood Azhar

Padmini Arhant

Why is China protecting Pakistan based Jaish-e-Mohammed terror commander Masood Azhar? 

Masood Azhar is a self-admitted terror mastermind with direct links not only to JeM but also al-Qaeda, IS and Taliban.

Masood Azhar is a known terrorist fostered by Pakistan Army and intelligence agency ISI among other terror networks chief such as Hafez Saeed of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Taliban operating in neighboring Afghanistan.

China justifying crackdown as terror measure against Uyghur Muslim population holding large number in detention camps that Chinese official refer to as boarding schools in Xinjiang autonomous region in NorthEast China while defending Pakistan resident Masood Azhar’s terror activities estrange China in the war on terror.

Whatever may be China’s formal and informal position on terror, shielding Pakistan’s Masood Azhar from international ban is a dangerous cause with enormous liability for both China and Pakistan.

China and Pakistan providing impunity to terrorist Masood Azhar, Hafez Saeed, al-Qaeda and Taliban clarify the respective states lack of concern for violence through terrorism consuming innocent lives not only across Pakistan borders viz. India, Afghanistan, Iran, Bangladesh but also within Pakistan.

Any nation claiming to be emerging economic power and stakeholder in Asia i.e. China backing terrorists in Pakistan is unfortunate and beckons reasoning confined to ethical and humanitarian values imperative in evaluating strategic ambitions threatening peace and stability in the nuclear age.

China as a mature and ancient civilization rising to the occasion and meeting global expectations in curbing and eliminating terror rather than inverse strategy exemplified in action against Masood Azhar would earn regional and international trust as well as respect.

Furthermore, China’s economic goals especially targeting neighboring India and other partners in trade relations, investments and export market could be facilitated at ease upon China’s cooperation and unequivocal stance against terror and terrorists like Masood Azhar, Hafez Saeed and more harboring terror from Pakistan against nations sharing border with the Islamic state.

Above all, nuclear Pakistan enabling terror sanctuary with armed shelter for terrorists is self-inflicting catastrophe that demands rationale and wisdom to reverse course and engage in dismantling terror infrastructure wreaking havoc in the interior and exterior of economically struggling Pakistan.

China as a major creditor to Pakistan besides Saudi Arabia playing pivotal role in terminating terrorism from Pakistan soil would guarantee positive returns in economic, financial and political exchange.

Meanwhile, the global community enlisting all terror networks without exception and imposing sanctions against them by denying arms, funding and logistic support beginning with terror factions, their founders and operatives in Pakistan and worldwide is fundamental in wiping terror that remains the contentious challenge in the world.

Importantly terror manifestation prevalent in Pakistan and elsewhere already endanger life world over and immunity to terrorists exacerbate conditions for victims and potential vulnerable targets near and far.

The global consensus to act effectively against terrorism would convey a strong message to terror sponsors and recruiters on the noose tightening against them with the only option for them to renounce terror and terror related agenda as well as ideology.

The patience and tolerance have been exhausted among those forced to deal with cross border terrorism from Pakistan in Kashmir and other territory.

Thank you.

India – Indian Air Force Targeted Mission on JeM Terror Camp in Pakistan

February 26, 2019

India – Indian Air Force Targeted Mission on JeM Terror Camp in Pakistan

Padmini Arhant

The latest report in public domain from both Pakistan and India confirming the Indian Air Force (IAF) restrained operation against terror network Jaish-e-Mohammed responsible by own admission for the recent terror attack in Pulwama, Kashmir on the convoy resulting in more than 40 Indian security forces martyrdom and,

Further engagement to launch major terror attack against mainland India per verifiable intelligence is IAF’s measured response to terror infiltration from Pakistan based terror outfits like Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and others thus far.

Indian Air Force precision attack focused exclusively on the terror training camp at Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan eliminating large number of JeM terrorists, trainers, senior commanders and groups of jihadis reportedly trained for suicide bomber attacks against civilians and security forces in various parts of India in the immediate future is claimed as pre-emptive self-defense security action from India.

Pakistan foreign ministry on the other hand characterizes India’s self-defense rationale as grave aggression and Line of Control (LoC) violation.

Interestingly, Pakistan somehow does not recognize gross violations of Pakistan establishment fostered and funded terror networks’ series of violations wreaking terror against India ranging from attempted terror assault on Indian Parliament, Indian Stock Exchange, Mumbai attack, army bases in Pathankot on Indian border with Pakistan, Uri until Pulwama in Kashmir.

Pakistan Army and ISI waging proxy war against India using these terror factions much to own detriment is not justifiable by any reasonable paradigm inflicting thousands of casualties from spate of terror attacks in direct violation of Indian sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Pakistan army and ISI rather than disavow ties with these terror forces within their state and deny them existence adopted reverse strategy that is arguably shackling Pakistan in every imaginable dimension.

Unfortunately, Pakistan establishment divestment in terror emboldened terror networks to run state affairs invalidating Pakistan citizens elected civilian government proved to be nothing more than public relations manager for Pakistan army and ISI.

Any retaliation from Pakistan establishment to Indian Air Force right to self-defense process against JeM would conclusively highlight Pakistan’s status in favoring, nurturing and bolstering terror operatives for wanton missions against India.

Any kind of wars i.e. proxy as promoted by Pakistan against India through terrorism until now setting the stage in escalating to conventional warfare and beyond is not viable for neither states and require considerable concerted efforts to prevent such possibility.

There could be drum roll for wars among political factions and fundamentalists on either side without taking into consideration the aftermath of wars and military confrontation.

Wars not only consume innocent lives on all sides, the economic liability is unaffordable exacerbating financial conditions that are best averted bearing in mind the desirable course available in acknowledgment of common enemy viz. terrorists and terrorism posing impediments to peace between two nuclear neighbors in the region.

Furthermore, Pakistan’s complacency and complicity in providing terror networks safe haven in their territory to destabilize nations sharing borders with Pakistan is a self-destructive policy increasingly becoming a challenge for Pakistan’s sovereign identity.

Not to mention Pakistan’s desperate economic situation.  

No sovereign nation in the right mind would allow terror forces to dictate and demand resources to launch terror within and outside the country at any civilian population expense. Pakistan army and ISI accommodating terror networks as integral force of aggression defines ill-conceived egregious misguided doctrine to demonstrate feigned formidability.

The civilian governments in Pakistan and India having pledged emergence of new image as Naya Pakistan and New India respectively face relevant frustrations in the economic front though they are relative yet converge in reality among the poor and poorest on either side.

Pakistan’s dire economic state and Indian incumbent administration not reaching basic expectations of average citizens struggling to make ends meet with myriad problems ranging from unemployment, inflation to woes from demonetization would continue to determine the actual performance or the lack thereof that cannot be ignored in the wake of contemporary feud becoming a deflection from domestic environment.

Security is undoubtedly a primary concern for any nation especially when situated near belligerent state actors deploying terror operatives to cause bloodshed and unnecessary tension serving none not even those behind heinous crime against humanity.

Pakistan is at the crossroads to abandon refuge to terror organizations and sincerely involve in peace initiatives to be taken seriously at the national and international level.

There could be no double standards in Pakistan crying foul upon Indian Air Force performing their solemn duty to the nation and citizens they are bound to protect from any harm while the former choosing to remain oblivious to terrorism emanating from their origin despite terror groups like JeM and LeT unabashedly accepting responsibility for terror activities against India.

Pakistan has the unique opportunity to take the positive step towards expunging terror that is strangulating the Islamic state confining citizens within the country to extreme poverty and generational suffering needlessly imposed upon them due to the establishment’s misplaced priority to terrorists over the people of Pakistan.

Indian Air Force dispensation against Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camp is commendable in the absence of civilian casualty as there appears to be none according to international reports.

Peace with a genuine approach and actions against terrorists extraditing perpetrators to affected nations applicably India for judicial proceedings would clarify Pakistan’s commitment translating into delivery.

Again, I reiterate it is never too late to be wise in life.

Thank you.

The Art of Peace and Diplomacy

The Art of Peace and Diplomacy 

Padmini Arhant

The latest offer from President Donald Trump to meet with Iran on fresh nuclear agreement is a positive step towards reconciliation of differences and misunderstandings that would benefit all, the Middle East in particular.

Iran accepting the opportunity for direct communication with United States would enable both sides to improve relations that are imperative in terms of global economy and energy sector.

President Donald Trump personal meeting with the leaderships from North Korea, Russia and now the overture to Iran are necessary to renew relations opening the channels for constructive peace and diplomacy. The peaceful dialogue is the only way that guarantees permanent resolution to long standing confrontations and adversarial positions maintained thus far.

India and Pakistan adopting similar policy with the incoming Pakistan government by setting aside political and strategic rhetoric is vital to defuse tensions between two nuclear states.  Indo-Pak involvement in building trust and reliable partnerships in trade, social and cultural exchanges as well as addressing common problems like water supply and environment conditions are critical for bilateral progress. 

Likewise, Taliban in Afghanistan recent ad hoc meeting with United States diplomat in Doha, Qatar for peaceful negotiations related to nearly two decades warfare in that nation is yet another promising start for the people of Afghanistan deserving respite and end to violence experienced thus far. 

However, the word of caution in this regard is unlike the previous event in 2013  with Taliban representation of Afghanistan in Doha, Qatar under separate flag proclaimed as The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan could not be simply taken as symbolic without strategic goals from behind the scenes operatives viz. the forces in Pakistan. 

Taliban commitment to peace in Afghanistan must be subject to renouncing violence which means disavow ties with architects and catalysts of terror including the purveyor of arms and ammunitions.

In doing so and upon verifiable and incontrovertible evidence of this requirement would then qualify them as Mujahids or liberators of their nation from foreign occupation and neighbor control such as Pakistan ISI and army. 

United States deploying peaceful means to conclude the Syrian conflict is paramount for Middle East peace and stability.

The adaptation of peaceful outreach and persistent diplomacy to end crises in every part of the world is the absolute measure to achieve global peace and security.

Thank you.
