I'm not angry at Israil anymore!


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)

Subhan Allah! U r right there Hijabee .... and I would like to raise my voice with U .... but I'd still hold my grudges against Israel though ....

hijabee said...

Ms. Unique,
I do too but I guess at this moment I am more shocked by the shameful silence of our leaders....

Empress Anisa said...

You've said all the needed to be said in this post! I'm angry at them still, for sure, but also again I laugh to myself at the same time- they THINK they're punishing those people by killing them and starving them but Allah will give those people their just due- it's the Israelis who should cry as on the Day of Judgement their punishment will be sooooo severe, they will wish they were NEVER born... my brothers and sisters gain Jannah early, InshaAllah and never no more do they have to live through the disgusting life of this world.
I say, continue to make dua FOR our brothers and sisters to soften the blows of death and start for some and continue for others to make dua AGAINST the enenmy... may Allah give them all 1 million times the punishment for EACH act they commit

Assalamu alaikum Hijabee,

your posts really show how you suffer for what is happening in Gaza,and at the same time they show that you are a very brave and beliving Muslimah.Allah will for sure award you for that!
Last week as the celebretion of the new year was approaching I thought the same as you,how lucky we are to live in peace,thinking of the celebration while on the other side of the world people were loosing lives and their human dignity.Almost all the time the radio was on at my house and while dressing up for the numerous visits and parties,horrible news were reaching my ear and my heart.I felt so ashamed that I am actualy looking my self into the mirror and my only problem was if the top matches with the throusers.My father who has a good knowledge of politics many times says to me that we should all stop for a while and really think of what is happening in the world.Many times he would also talk to me about Palestina and tells me that what is happening now is just the opposite as in the 2nd World War.The Israelis just got so crazy.Yes...one could say that they are crazy,or as you say that you also feel ashame of the Muslim leaders who do not do much for their Palestine brothers.However,the truth is that many countries in the world (EU as well) and in the Middle East depend on U.S.A..They know that going against the politics of U.S.A. will mean problems for their own countries.The world is U.S.A....I read in some newspapers that Israel attacked now because they considered the moment just right before Obama becomes officialy the president of the States.Nobody really knows how the world will be after Obama.So Israel took their last chance,just in case.I really think the world is ruled by the U.S.A.,petrol and money.It is like that and this hegemony does not really allow other countries to be indipendent in their politics.But we,as normal people,what can we do?We can pray Allah and stay firm as a rock in our wish for the peace in the world.

P.S.:With this I do not want to justify countries who do not help Palestina,but I just want to state a fact.

Mina said...

I couldnt agree with you more...

I feel sick that no one is doing anything espically the U.N. - what have they done???

but i still blame Isreal as much as everyone else...I mean its the world leaders who are giving them this power...

These ppl will get whats coming to them and may Allah (SWT) have mercy on those that have died and grant them Jannah.

I feel like all i can do is make duaa for our brothers and sisters:(

muslimahh said...

You are so right...

tranquilityfromwithin said...

I swear you wrote what has been in my heart and mind! Such clarity and insight, I'm glad I took the time to read your beautiful post. :-)

NiDa said...

You know sisters, Hijabee and the rest! I blame none other than ourselves! I blame not the laders not the superpowers but each and every one of us. The individual Muslim who has ALLOWED leaders as such to be elected in the first place, who has ALLOWED that our ummah is divided, who has ALLOWED that al wahn has poisoned our hearts and left us in the darkness of the duniya. It starts with each and every one of US... WE need to become stronger MUSLIMS (not just in name) WE need to starts loving each other for the sake of Allah swt. and it is WE than who will have our voice to choose amongst us the best of leaders who will lead our nation to victory!!! We cannot change the system overnight, but we can start by changing ourselves overnight!

SubhanAllah sis I feel your frustration!

hijabee said...

Empress Anisa!
Let's keep on making duas for them. Hopefully, the situation will get better inshAllah. And yes the Israelis will get their reward as well. Every atom of good and every atom of bad will be weighted....

Jasmina,
Thanks for your comment. I agree with you that they depend on the US, but at what price? Injustice shouldn't prevail regardless of the price of justice! The whole world might boycott you if you support a cause they don't agree with, but as people who have a conscience we should also stand for truth and justice!

Mina,
I agree! We should keep making duas :(This is a big test for us, especially for the Palestinian people...

Muslimah, Tranquilityfromwithin,Ange
Thanks for reading.



Nida,
thanks for that reminder, we really need to look at ourselves as an Ummah and change our behavior. The Ummah is divided, the Arab World is divided, the Israelis know that and its to their advantage. If we were united, they wouldn't dare/carry these attacks with such confidence!

kakchik said...

salam sis. this is one good writing and i do agree if you let 'mama' translate them into Malay (Bahasa). then hopefully, 'mama' can share it with us Malaysian.

hijabee said...

InshAllah she can translate it.

JASMINA said...

Hi...
Of course,I completely agree with you,thus I am very firm in my support of justice.I believe that every single person can do a lot if one decides for the path of truth and to stand for the oppressed.The real solution of the problem in Israel is that the Palestinians should get their land and a status of a state,and they should be left in peace.It is so clear and there is nothing else,but most of the world supports the madness of the Israel war.

Yasmeen said...

Well written sister,you perfectly expressed our frustrations and anger over Israel and the bleak response of the ummah on Palestine's cry for help.

hijabee said...

Jasmina,
I agree!

Yasmeen,
I'm glad you liked it.

Mina said...

Tag your it...

see my blog.

hijabee said...

Mina,
It's done :)

Tandy said...

As from someone new to all the actual insides, politics, religion whatever is going on, can someone help me under stand what you believe or what in fact they are actually fighting over???
You usually hear the one side that they want you to hear but I am curious of others.

hijabee said...

Tandy,
It all started when a peice of land from Palestine was given to zionists so they could establish a new "state" there, and that state was called Israil in 1947.This was done by superpowers to compensate for the damage that was done to the jews during the holocaust. Now, Israelis occupy 76% of Palestine while Palestinians are relegated to the west bank and Gaza. Israil's put a blockade on Gaza for the past 18 months, Gazans don't have access to electricity, food, medecine..... they live in a prison, i-e they can't come in or out of Gaza . Borders are closed and controlled by Israil.It's really a long story but to make it short, this all started when a state called "Israil" that did not exist was created in 1947 on Palestininan soil, and as a result millions of Palestinians have been displaced, are refugees in their own country, and live in inhumane conditions. They've been fighting for their land ever since, they've been fighting for freedom. All they want is to be able to live in their country and that right's been denied to them for the last decades.
