Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a few hours ago on 2 December 2023, issued a statement, “We have always emphasized a permanent ceasefire rather than a humanitarian pause…. We lost the chance for peace after the humanitarian pause due to Israel's uncompromising approach.” The statement was issued after renewed target drone attacks and general aerial bombardment to carry out mass genocide of Orthodox Muslim Palestinians. Israel and its Western allies plus India have estimated at least 60,000 or more killings to pave the way for the settlement of non-Palestinians in Gaza and Palestinian territories. For this purpose, they intend to establish a safe or buffer zone on the Palestinian side of Gaza's border to differentiate between friends and foes, however, the Palestinians have refused to move out of Gaza, no matter if all of them are killed by Israelis, westerns and hypocrites.
An important announcement is likely to be issued by Hamas leadership in exile next week, probably as, a “permanent peace solution”. Where no formal statement has been issued, it was reemphasized that as earlier announced, their Political authority did not detain any woman, child, or older person except the one detained on the suspicion of spying released in mid-October 2023. It is being attributed to Hamas in Gaza they claimed. “We neither arrested women projected as released by Hamas in the media recently nor there is our hand in their release”. Interestingly, each player and their roles are limited to the need-to-know basis; US – UK – Qatar - Egypt - Iran, and Israel were tight-lipped in releasing the truth behind the hostages’ drama… but how long? The reports gave further confirmation that hostages were released on whose orders and through the good offices of which country.
Recently, the UK held a meeting with Egyptian leadership and issued a statement, “UK stands ready to provide further support, recognizing that there must be no forcible displacement from Gaza and that aid must be able to reach people across the Gaza Strip.” One wonders on one side these countries are party to barbarism and other side are worried about the supply of aid”. It was neither the aid nor concern for the Palestinians but was a blackmail and pressure tactic for the release of Alaa Abdel Fattah, an Egyptian blogger who was sentenced to five years in prison for "spreading fake news" against Muslim leadership and Islam and is presently detained in Wadi al-Natrun prison in Egypt. Ironically. UK has invented a unique way that might also be followed by other countries to grant citizenship to criminals and sentenced people in other countries in absentia to ensure their release. Alaa Abdel Fattah was granted British citizenship in prison in April 2022. Interestingly, he got the citizenship because his mother who is a mathematics professor at Cairo University was born in London. It is a matter of shame that neither UK nor any other Western country regretted the cold-blooded murders of 67 journalists and media persons martyred in Gaza by Israelis and allies.
If we recall, allies and US bluffed Muslim leadership that if they agreed to “normalised ties between the Arab countries and Israel” they would ensure a solution of the Palestine issue as per the aspirations of Palestinians. But despite the assurances by Tel Aviv and Washington for a peaceful, just solution of Palestine, it never happened. It was a double cross and these countries played with the sentiments of not only the signatories of “normalised ties” but also the whole Muslim world. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and UK Foreign Secretary James Cleverly made contact with the Arab leaders after the Israel self-engineered attack on her own Israel Defence Forces (IDF) and LGBT music and dance party at Kibbutz Re'im, Israel, as assurance was given of two-state solution by resuming the peace process and ending the illegal Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories by international law. But it was done to gain time to carry out genocide of Orthodox Muslims, their families, and supporters as well as to settle new people as lost Jew tribes, especially from India, Iran and former Persian immigrants to other parts of the world.
By now we all know that it was Israel's self-engineered attack on her own Israel Defence Forces and LGBT music and dance party at Kibbutz Re'im, Israel to derail the promises and assurances of a two-state solution by resuming the peace process and ending the illegal Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories by international law. Now Tel Aviv has resumed attack after a pause to win public opinion and gain time to carry out genocide of Orthodox Muslims, their families and supporters as well as to settle new people as lost Jew tribes, especially from India, Iran and former Persian immigrants to other parts of the world. The leadership of Arab states in an exclusive dialogue on 1 December proposed parting way from the bluff of “normalized ties”, that not only focused on Israel but also her allies. The United Nations and international Human Rights organizations must continue their efforts, no matter how effective they are to expose the Israeli war crimes and get compensation from Israel and its allies for every victim of genocide.
