Muslims should ask China to take interest like Rohingya in rehabilitation of Palestinian refugees. By Hem Raj Jain
USA & Israel are trying to be over-smart about Jerusalem (i)- PM Netanyahu misrepresenting history of past 3,000 years (ii)- Prez Trump has utterly failed to lead USA as ‘the leader of free world’ (iii)- Trump-Netanyahu, if not stopped, will endanger already-fragile world peace (iv)- Only way to restrain irresponsible USA / Israel is to give ‘right to return’ to Palestinian refugees (vi)- Muslims & Ors should ask Palestinians to demand ‘right to return’ from UN (vi)- China should be asked to take interest (like Rohingyas) in rehabilitation of Palestinian refugees too.
Israel PM Netanyahu on December 10, 2017 said during his visit to France that US president Trump has done justice while recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital (hence USA is also shifting its Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem) because as per Netanyahu Jerusalem has been the capital not only of Jewish State of Israel for the last 7 years but also of Jews for the last 3,000 years.
No-doubt both USA & Israel are trying to play over-smart about Palestinian problem. As far history of 3,000 years, by brazenly violating the terms of Balfour Declaration of 1917 (and other League of Nation's subsequent promises regarding Trusteeship), the present-day Israel (from where Palestinians have been summarily driven out by force), has been justified mainly in the name of holocaust in which ~ 6 million Jews were allegedly butchered in Europe during World War II, though Palestinians had nothing to do with holocaust. Before 1917 Muslims were ~ 85.5 % Jews ~ 12 % and Christians & others were ~ 2.5 % in Israel / Palestine. Before 1917 there was no movement or armed struggle by Jews in or out of Israel to take Israel back from the Palestinians. Even as per Old Testament Israel does not belong to Jews (rather Jews were taken out from Egypt by Prophet Moses and were asked to kill the then residents of and capture this ‘Promised Land’ of Israel). Now Jews want to make Israel a Jewish State with 75 % Jews in it and wants to leave Palestinians in either very small area of unviable State of Palestine (West Bank and Gaza Strip) or as permanent refugees in other countries.
As per media reports presently the population of Israel is ~ 8 million in which 75 % (~ 6 million) are Jews where as there are ~ 10.5 million Palestinians (~ 4.75 million in Palestine the West-Bank, Gaza-Strip and East Jerusalem + ~ 1.75 million in Israel and ~ 4 million registered refugees). All these Muslim Palestinians like Jews are legally entitled to remain in Israel / Palestine. This of-course will bring Palestinians in majority in Israel / Palestine but this is the only justifiable remedy for the over-smartness of USA and Israel, who have forgotten that world community expects UN member countries to have their citizens from different religions (In India also Hindus and Muslims are expected to live together, peacefully). The USA, the self-proclaimed leader of free world is especially more in the wrong when in this 21 st century of Secularism the USA is supporting a theocratic Jewish State of Israel (therefore two-State-solution based on religion should be discarded in favor of one-State-solution)
World community should realize the change in political situation prevalent in the world especially about human rights. The West (USA and its Allies, the European Christian countries) has given a good-bye to human rights whereas China of late has started taking interest in the human rights of refugees. China recently is taking keen interest in the rehabilitation of Muslim Rohingyas and is talking to Myanmar and Bangladesh to sort-out this problem. Therefore Muslims and others should persuade the UN permanent member China to take interest (like Rohingyas) in rehabilitation also of Palestinian refugees in Israel / Palestine.
In addition to requesting China for taking keen interest in solving Palestinian problem permanently, the Muslims all over the World should stop giving lip service to the cause of Palestinians and instead should do something effective to solve gory & chronic Israel – Palestine problem. For this solution, Indian Muslims (both Sunnis & Shias, the citizens of secular and democratic country of ~ 1.3 billion people) should take the lead to organize a meeting / seminar in India in which people from all over the World especially Muslims (Sunnis & Shias), who believe in justice to Palestinians, will attend this meeting / seminar in order to formulate the details of peaceful march of ~ 1 million to Jerusalem by taking Palestinian refugees also with them in this peaceful march for the objective of the rehabilitation of Palestinian refugees in one State (and not two States) of Israel / Palestine - so that this problem can be solved permanently and that too in a non-violent manner [which will globally project the true image of Islam (as a peace-loving religion) which has been sullied by blood thirsty militant-Jihadis all over the world.
This said peaceful march of ~ 1 million (participants from different countries) plus Palestinian refugees to Jerusalem will also pave the way for International Political Parties (IPPs) registered at UN. Moreover [in addition to (i)- Mandatory Protocol MP-1 in place of Optional Protocol OP-1 of ICCPR where individual and not merely member State will be entitled to move UN for protecting his / her human rights and (ii)- Global currency (with proper asset back-up) and its central bank at UN along with its branches in all the member countries of UN] without IPPs the highly desirable genuine Globalization (which is the only effective solution for the protection of human rights all across the world) is impossible.
Let us hope Muslims will rise to the occasion and will offer exemplary service in the interest of the human rights of the entire mankind.
