The Struggle in Palestine with the jews & those Behind Them: 
Facts that Must Remain Axiomatic Among the Ummah

First: The issue of Palestine is vital and towards which a measure of life and death must be undertaken. It is, however, secondary to the central issue, namely resuming the Islamic way of life by establishing the Islamic State and implementing the rule of Allah on earth. This warrants removing the systems of Kufr, toppling the collaborating rulers, unifying the Muslims’ lands, and preparing for resuming Jihad, liberating Palestine and carrying the message of Islam to the world. Although Palestine is a secondary issue, it is however not merely a disputed piece of land, but rather part and parcel of the Aqeedah of the Muslims. Palestine had been linked to their Islam and to their Aqeedah before they even conquered her and spread their authority over her lands. Allah had made Palestine the first Qibla of the Muslims and the night journey of His noble Messenger ﷺ. It is in Palestine that Allah brought all the prophets to life for the Messenger of Allah ﷺ to lead them in Salat in her Masjid, and it was from Palestine that Allah ascended His Messenger ﷺ to the heavens. It is also Palestine that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ made it a rite to set on a journey to it in addition to Makkah and Medina; and he ﷺ made it Mandub (recommended) to he who cannot travel to it to send oil to light the lamps of Masjid Al-Aqsa. This is not confined to al-Quds alone, but it also includes all the lands of Palestine, as per the text of the noble Qur’an. Allah says: “Limitless in His glory is He who transported His servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al-Aqsa - the environs of which We had blessed -so that We might show him some of Our symbols”. Hence, the mubarakah (blessing) includes the surroundings of al-Masjid al-Aqsa, namely all the lands of al-Sham, Yafa, Tal al-Rabi’, Haifa, Saida, Beirut, Tabariyyah, al-Nasira, Nablus, al-Khalil, Gaza, al-Aqabah, , and Sinai, are all a blessed land linked to the Aqeedah of the Muslims. It is forbidden to forsake one single inch of it, irrespective of how far it were from al Quds and from al-Masjid al-Aqsa because it is all a blessed land linked to the Aqeedah of the Muslims; forsaking it would be tantamount to forsaking the Aqeedah of the Muslims and betraying, Allah , the Messenger ﷺ , and the believers.

Second: If the enemy usurps any part of the Muslims’ lands, the Muslims will have to rise for Jihad to repel the enemy and fight him until they recover the land, even if they have to sacrifice their lives and all that is precious for the sake of this duty. This is why the Muslims rose, when the Crusaders seized the lands of Islam during the Crusades, to fight the invading Crusaders and they never relinquished one single inch, and they went on fighting them generation after generation until they succeeded in recapturing al-Quds 90 years after it has been lost. They also recaptured all the lands of Islam from the Crusaders in wars lasting 200 years, without willingly surrendering to the overwhelming enemy any part of the land. The Crusaders would usurp areas of land through war, and the Muslims would persevere in fighting them until they recover what had been usurped from them by force; they never accepted to let the crusader populate, be comfortable, or build settlements without a fight. What the Muslims concluded with the Crusaders were merely armistices and stoppings of acts of warfare for a limited period, so that the Mujahideen may muster their forces, not to let the Crusaders live in the lands they had usurped, or acknowledge their right to one single inch of the lands due to, ipso facto, superiority, and overwhelming power.

Third: The peace agreements and normalisation the regimes have concluded with the Jews do not concern the Ummah in any shape or form; these regimes do not represent the Ummah in the slightest but rather those who have brought them and assigned to them the affairs of the Muslims through hegemony and power. Hence, they are agreements between the jews and regimes affiliated to the West, and with an international colonialist sponsorship. They are agreements of capitulation and submission by these regimes to the jews. Thus, they have no Shari’ah, or judicial, or political impact as far as the Ummah is concerned, and they do not prevent any Jihad or resistance or war against the usurping jews, and do not even suspend any struggle against the traitorous functional regimes who have emboldened the jews.

Hence, all these agreements, which have been designed to liquidate the issue of Palestine, normalise the relationship with the Jews, integrate them in the region, and even hand over the region’s leadership to them, do not represent the Muslims whatsoever.

Fourth: The issue of Palestine is the issue of the Islamic Ummah, rather than the issue of the UN, or the Quartet, or the League of Arab States; it is not even the issue of the people of Palestine alone, as they want it to be. It is an issue of the Ummah alone, and according to what her religion dictates, who determines the manner to solve the issue. Shari’ah makes it compulsory upon the entire Ummah to undertake the necessary measures to execute this solution, through those who genuinely represent her willpower, namely the Khalifah of the Muslims who the Ummah will appoint as a guardian and protector of her interests; and this is not hard for the mighty Islamic Ummah who ruled the world for centuries.

Fifth: All the solutions of liquidation proposed internationally or regionally, and all the political initiatives that some Palestinian groups, or Arab or international forces have called for are but solutions designed to embed the usurping entity and liquidate the issue. Moreover, not only are such solutions pragmatic and have no connection to Islam, they are also flawed and do not reflect the interests of the people of the region. Such initiatives have failed to liberate one single inch of Palestine and have not deterred the jews from their aggression, haughtiness, and ghoulish behaviour; they have rather yielded further concessions and entrenchment of the usurping entity in Palestine.

Sixth: The sound solution to the issue of Palestine begins by placing it on its original plane, namely treating it as an Islamic issue. It is neither an Arab nor a Palestinian issue but rather the issue of the entire Ummah. Islam makes it obligatory on the Islamic Ummah to work towards recovering Palestine through Jihad and fighting. This obligation falls on the people of Palestine first, and if the sufficiency is not achieved the obligation will fall on those next to them from among the Muslims, and then the nearest to them, until sufficiency is achieved and the lands recovered from the usurping jews. However, since the regimes surrounding this entity are engrossed in protecting its security and entrenching its existence by linking it to the people of the region through economic and political agreements to secure the continuance of its existence, the sound path towards liberating Palestine would be to reject such conspiratorial solutions, destroy these traitorous regimes and establish the Islamic State, which will rectify the process of liberating Palestine from the usurpers. This does not mean that the Muslims in Palestine and outside should remain bystanders until the Islamic State is established, because Shari’ah has made it obligatory on those capable of inflicting damage on the enemy, or preventing him from executing its plans, or weakening his power, to harness their ability to achieve this, so that the flame of Jihad and the effort to achieve liberation may remain ablaze in the hearts of the Ummah’s children, not only to liberate al-Masjid al-Aqsa, the violation against which is used today as a tool to bulwark the government of Bennet and Lapid against collapse and to reverse the plans of the extremist rightwing to the advantage of the government with an official Arab collusion, but also to liberate the Ummah from colonialism, enslavement, and treason, and liberate all the land of Palestine for good. This is not hard in the slightest for Allah .

“If you aid the cause of Allah, He will help you and will make firm your steps.” [Surah Mohammed-7]
