A time of opportunity for Palestinians

Story Summary
The Palestinians are in the most difficult position, given their relative weakness militarily, their fragmentation politically, and their vulnerability economically. Yet this moment is also one of opportunity for the Palestinians, on three important fronts: national unity, coordinated political resistance and the mobilization of international support.

The PLO has always been the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people because it is the vehicle through which Palestinians engage the world diplomatically (including its nonmember observer state status at the United Nations) and the forum in which Palestinians express their views and seek to achieve national consensus.

The Palestinians now need to agree over a division of responsibility among their people across the region and the world.

Fourth, mass nonviolent civil disobedience by Palestinians everywhere – inside Israel, in occupied lands, in Arab countries and around the world – could be used to simultaneously dramatize Israeli oppressive, inhuman and illegal measures, enhance a sense of common action by the scattered Palestinian community, and harness international support.

It must embark on a nationally coordinated political resistance strategy that would be widely supported by Palestinians, Arabs and people of good will around the world.

  1. Palastina’leaders have been struggled almost 60 years, since 5 big Arab countries surround the tiny state fought Israel. Allah did not help Islamic countries to expel Israel from Map. Why?
    Because most Arab people hate Israel. Allah all knower and all Wiser.
    Allah already commanded in His book as;
    “Love your neighbor as yourself.”If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
    Allah already shown to His people how to solve the dispute among His people, namely Love your neighbor as you love your self, and hatred none for all. how easy is it?
    but Arab people still hate Israel and do not allow to exist and name Jews state. That is problem.
    Million Arab Muslim around the world have been praying 5 times a day and years, but why Alah do not LISTEN to their prayer or Doa? what is wrong?
    We need to find the cause the problem?
    In order Allah listen to our praer or doa’.
    May Allah guide Arab’s leaders to the right path of Islam,Amen.
    With all my love
    What ever we do, be done with love of God (Cor.16:13).
    If we love each other, we can achieve a big works for mankind
    but if hate each other, will be destroyed completely
    so let we love each other, Allah will bless us all
