I remember being extremely angry at Israil when they attacked Gaza few days ago. I remember watching the air raids and the tanks, I remember seeing bodies of women and children, I remember crying out of anger. But today, after spending my weekend on my couch watching every american news channel, watching every news report of Al-Jazeera, I am not angry at Israil anymore. See, Israil only did what they were allowed to do, we the citizens of the world have given Israil the green light with our leaders sitting in nice offices, flowers on their desks while somewhere people are dying coz they don't have access to water. No, I can't be angry at Israil anymore, there are not even 1 million of Israilis in this world, where are the voices of the billions of us? If we all spit, they will drown, what's wrong with us? What's wrong with Humanity? How can we tolerate in the 21st century that food, water,medicine and electritity can be used as weapons against a people ? How can we accept the equation that 5 Isreili lives equal 500 Palestinian lives? Are the muslim leaders high on crack? or did they forget that by saying La Ilaha Ilalah, they signed a truce with Allah that they will not stay silent in the face of Injustice? Well, after all, these are the same governments that watched, aided and supported Israils blockade of Gaza , I guess out of collective punishment for the Gazan population for daring to vote Hamas. Shame on you !Shame on you Ummah of Rassululah! Is this the legacy of your beloved prophet? Is this how you implement the teachings of the most noble man who walked on the face of this earth? Shame on you! You have the blood of children and women who will be witnesses against you on the day of reckoning! Shame on you! Shame on you every day that you get off your bed without a though for this ummah! Shame on you for every meal that you eat while mothers stand in line for hours for a loaf of bread! Shame on you! Shame on you for every sip of water you drink while your brothers and sisters in Gaza don't have access to water! Shame on you! Shame on you Egypt! You are the nation of Musa but you're acting as Pharaoh! Shame on you Egypt, how can you eat while your neighbors go to bed hungry? Egypt did you forget that your beloved prophet said He will not enter Paradise whose neighbour is not secure from his wrongful conduct. Did you forget that he said, "By Allah, he does not believe! By Allah, he does not believe! By Allah, he does not believe!" It was said, "Who is that, O Allah's Apostle?" He said, "That person whose neighbor does not feel safe from his evil." Why did you close the gate on the people of Gaza, oh Egypt, how can you eat and sleep at night?, Isn't your prophet the one who said He is not believing in me, the one who sleeps full while his neighbor is hungry... But the truth is he is your prophet, the truth is some of you at the gate blocking the people of GAZA do pray 5 times a day, the truth is Rassululah was your prophet, the truth is I am ashamed of you! And it is to you, Arab leaders, Muslim leaders that I am angry at! I am ashamed of you! I am ashamed that we beleive in the same GOD! The more I think about it, the more I want to puke! You are slaves of your image and desires! The people in Palestine might be surrounded and occupied but they are more free than you! They have inner Freedom, that freedom that you can never understand coz you're too busy slaving for the West, petrodollars, gold and dunya! They have freedom of the heart, freedom from hypocrisy, freedom from this dunya. I am proud of them and I am ashamed of you!! As I am writing this, I can't help but wonder who just died in Gaza? Who's crying for her son right now? Who's crying for her daugher? Who's crying for a mother? Who's crying for a father? Who's crying for Humanity? If you're crying, I will console you with the verses from your Lord, in surah Al Imran:
Think not of those who are killed in the Way of Allâh as dead. Nay, they are alive, with their Lord, and they have provision.
They rejoice in what Allâh has bestowed upon them of His Bounty, rejoicing for the sake of those who have not yet joined them, but are left behind that on them no fear shall come, nor shall they grieve.
They rejoice in a Grace and a Bounty from Allâh, and that Allâh will not waste the reward of the believers.
Those who answered (the Call of) Allâh and the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) after being wounded; for those of them who did good deeds and feared Allâh, there is a great reward
Those (i.e. believers) unto whom the people (hypocrites) said, "Verily, the people (pagans) have gathered against you (a great army), therefore, fear them." But it (only) increased them in Faith, and they said: "Allâh (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)."
So they returned with Grace and Bounty from Allâh. No harm touched them; and they followed the good Pleasure of Allâh. And Allâh is the Owner of Great Bounty
It is only the Evil One that suggests to you the fear of his votaries: Be ye not afraid of them, but fear Me, if ye have Faith.(V169-174)
