My American guest asked me; if I believe that Israeli nation has the right to exist or not. Yes, Israeli nation has the right to exist.
Amazed?!!!!! Any way this amazement will vanish when you read my explanation..
Every people and every nation has the complete right to live freely and peacefully without harming others. That's the way I believe.
So, if we considered the Israeli nation which existed for long centuries before my birth, your birth and before the birth of all people on earth now, is a nation like any other nation, taking into consideration the lawful fact that the difference between nation and people or state is the element of authority, and asked ourselves if they have the right to exist or not, then, we can reply by another question; Are Israelis(Jews) human beings or not?!!
Now, my respond is clear; Jews who are sons of Israel(Jacob) are human beings, and only for that fact they have the complete right to live and exist. As a result; this Israeli nation has the right to exist.
BUT if were going to talk about Israeli state which has been declared in 1948, so, it's completely different. I won't say directly what I think about the right of Israeli state to exist, but firstly there are more important views than mine to Israeli state and its right to exist..
In the preamble of UN charter; you can read this as a general obligation on UN peoples; '..to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbours ..', You can also read following in the 2nd article of UN charter; 'All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, ...'
So, what can we extract from these texts?!!! Every people is obligated to live together in peace with its neighbours, and to be good neighbours!!! Let me think for a moment; Live in peace!! Good neighbours!! As a good neighbour I help my neighbours in their troubles, share them in their happiness and sadness, exchange advice, greet them, visit them when they become ill, not to spy on them, ..etc. And if I'm not going to do all that, then the least thing which I have to do is that not to harm them and to steal their belongings, right?!!
So, how a people can be a good neighbour?!!! Help other peoples in their troubles, share their happiness and sadness, exchange knowledge, not to spy on it.. . Yes, that's right. And if this people isn't going to do any of that, then the least thing to do is not to harm other peoples and not to steal what these peoples own. It's an ethical obligation before being an obligation out of law.
As for the 2nd article it sets an obligation on states not to use any kind of force or even threat of using it in their relations together against territorial integrity or political independence of any other state!!! The obligation is so clear!!! No state can use force against territorial integrity or political independence of other states to achieve any of its purposes.
Regarding to these texts, the declaration of the state Israel is against international law!!!!!
Israeli people wasn't the good neighbour to Palestinian people, in contrary it stole its land without having a reasonable reason that justifies stealing Palestinian lands from their people and random killing. On the other hand, Israel clearly used force against integrity of Palestinian land (Declaration of a state on another state represents the most grave threat to integrity of this state!!!)
As for the 2nd part of the article '..political independence..' Israel deleted and destroyed political independence of Palestine. Actually; after there were an independent state called 'Palestine ', this state has been deleted!!!! And another state has been declared instead on this state!!!
Yes, Jews(Israelis) had a purpose which was their unity on one land under one state, after oppression committed against them during WWII, and even before that for long centuries. They gathered and discussed about the good area that will be their state, one of the choices was Uganda but they refused it. Then Balfour Declaration has been made to establish national home for Jews in Palestine !!!!!!! And 1948 came by the birth of this state on Palestinian lands,, 'Israel'. A nd since then there is continues extension for the sake of Israeli state against Palestinian land.
The right of Jews to unit must be respected and even to be supported, but if this right opposed with rights of other peoples living in peace, independently and under an established and situated authority, then, the right of this people must be respected firstly.
If we're going to talk about humanical law, then we'll fill thousands of long papers.
Israel daily break the humanical rule which obligates not to attack children and babies. Israel daily break the huanical law which obligates not to attack women and old men. Israel daily break humanical rule which obligates not to attack armless people. Israel daily break the humanical rule which obligates not to attack civilians. Israel daily break the humanical law which obligates not to target civil homes and destroy habitation apartments.
So, what can be a good solution?!!!!
I recommend a solution. Why don't Israelis declare their own state on a land where there is no people and where there is no independent state?!!! Do you know where this kind of land can be found?!!! No people, No independent state?!!!! ..... Antarctica.
So, is it logical to accept killing and killing and killing of babies like Eman Hajjo (4 months old) in 5-1-2001, Sarah (1.5 years old) in 1-10-2001, children like Mohammad Al-Dorra (12 years) 30-9-2001, old men like ( Ahmad Yaseen) and civilians (don't need here any example as the world knows the daily and continues random killing) ?!!!! Is it logical to accept daily destructive of civil homes and targeting civil targets?!!!! Is it logical to accept creating more and more orphans and more and more widows every day passes in Palestine?!!! Is it logical to accept displacing people from their homes?!!! Is it logical to accept frightening safe people?!!!
So, if the first solution is illogical, and the second is illogical at all too, what is the solution then?!!!!
51st article of UN charter gave us the solution; 'Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defence if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations..'
So, it's the right of Palestinian people to defend himself and his land the same like the right of self-defence which any people have and can practice against invaders. And this resistance must last till the Palestinian state which existed before 1948 be declared, and violence be rejected, and real peace prevails, and rights be got back to their owners, and war criminals be provided to international neutral courts.
I believe that, any solutions to the Palestinian issue won't do any thing, because all will be temporary and won't last. So,there must be a permanent solution which depends firstly on respecting international law and punishing criminals and getting back rights to their owners. And without that; you'll see a hundred Qana, and a hundred Deir Yassen, and the problem won't be solved. If the group of the four requires; rejecting violence, respecting previous deals, confession by Israel and ending resistance, so I think that they aren't targeting the good solution, but the good solution must depends on following basics;
- Israeli state is against international law; preamble of UN charter, 2nd article of UN charter.
- Israeli state is an invader land.
- Israeli daily deeds against armless Palestinian people is against humanical and international law.
- The right of Jews to unit must not harm others rights.
- Self-defence against killing innocents and stealing lands represents an admitted and legal right.
- If it's not good to decrease Israeli state, so was it good to delete Palestinian state?!!
Was my view rational?!!
Yes, Israel has a right to exist Source : http://tounderstand-islam.blogspot.com/
