Making Palestinians Self-Reliant: Let Rafah Gate Shine!

By Dr. Abdul Ruff

Today the status of besieged Palestinians has been reduced to that of slaves and beggars who could be slaughtered by illegal Jewish settlers as and when the Zionist regime requires such ghastly terror operations for political or other reasons.

An arrogant Israel enjoying western arms, including nukes obtained illegally, deliberately kills Palestinians and expands illegal colonies in West Bank in order to make the issue as bargain chip for final resolution of Palestine establishment.

For decades Palestinians have been struggling to regain their lost sovereignty from Zionist yoke. Palestinian decision - after a long wait - to approach the UN for the much delayed statehood of Palestine might have upset all terror calculations of Israeli regime.

Leaders in Palestine, on their part, have not only totally failed to secure the lives and lands of Palestine from Zionist aggressors and oppressors, but even neglected the food security of defenseless Palestinians who continue to starve due to non-availability of jobs. This grave situation has forced the Palestinians to work for Israeli terrorists in their colony construction sites inside Palestine. Palestinian Authority led by Abbas has been unable find those Palestinians who work on Zionist colonies, built on confiscated Palestinian lands, find alternative jobs in Palestine or elsewhere.

In recent times Israeli regime is facing severe problems in sustaining the colonially brutal occupation of Palestine. Even though Israel has rebuffed the Obama regime’s demand for colony freeze inside Palestine as art of finding a credible solution to Mideast crisis, Israel continues to meet very serious objections from Turkey, Egypt and unity move of Palestine etc.

Of course, upon the unexpected Fatah-Hamas unity, Israel has become nervous and over-cautious now which is discernible from fascist Israel’s fanatic leader Netanyahu’s spin jumps and confused rhetoric. Israeli call for talks is bogus even as it keeps offering negotiations as the way forward but without showing goodwill on its side or contributing productively to the already troubled peace process in the Middle East. Aside from the use of vague terms, Netanyahu’s terms of agreement exclude occupied Jerusalem, refugees, and 1967 borders from any negotiations, thereby putting road blocks for settlement of the Mideast crisis. Netanyahu, who managed his second term as premier after the Gaza holocaust, wants to take peace efforts back to their status in 1993, continue the illegal colony activities and block any further move in the peace talks. Clearly, Netanyahu, like his predecessors, does not want to negotiate for peace.

It is quite obvious, because once independent, Palestine will shield its territories from Zionist aggressions and crimes, effectively denying Israeli criminals any chance for terror attacks inside Palestine with impunity as it has been “performing” them for decades with tacit approval of visibly notorious UNSC.

Shielded by the Western terrocracies, Zionist regime and its military keep eliminating the defenseless Palestinians in a sustained manner but what is more shocking for humanity is the crude fact that Israeli terrorists are employing hapless Palestinians for expanding their illegal colonies inside Palestine. These tricks the Zionists play against Palestinians to legitimize the illegal settlements and justify their genocides of owners of the lands - the same way the NATO terror states using some rogue Muslim nations and Muslim agents to destabilize Muslim nations and kill Muslims.

Islamic path preferred by the Hamas party in stead of the so-called western culture, is being hated by the illegal Israeli regime and its western producers. The Gaza economic blockade imposed by both Israel and Egypt literally created an existential problem for the people but however, after the Israeli attack on the aidship for Gaza, killing workers including an American, has prompted frequent international condemnation of Israel and pressed for its removal. But Tel-Aviv on the strength of USA-UK terror twins has so far refused to lift the blockade fully. Also, Palestinians have welcomed Egypt’s decision to reopen the Rafah Gate and to end a visa requirement for women, minors and men over the age of 40 from the Gaza Strip. Rafah Gate is the only Gaza border crossing not controlled by Israel and which is reopened for the besieged Palestinians to breathe freely.

It seems Israel had written off any unity between the Fatah-Hamas factions and decided to stay on in occupied territories by killing Palestinians and expanding the illegal colonies. And now Israel has become nervous and over-cautious now upon the unity-Rafah development - which is discernible from Netanyahu’s spin jumps and confused rhetoric. Aside from the use of vague terms, Netanyahu’s terms of agreement exclude occupied Jerusalem, refugees, and 1967 borders from any negotiations. Netanyahu also wants to take peace efforts back to their status in 1993, continue the illegal colony activities and block any further move in the peace talks. Netanyahu, like his predecessors, does not want to negotiate for peace. Israeli call for talks is bogus even as it keeps offering negotiations as the way forward but without showing goodwill on its side or contributing productively to the already troubled peace process in the Middle East.

If they still want to deny Palestinians their promised legitimate state, Israel and its western sponsors must be deadly at work to disunite the Palestinians on the one hand and destabilize emerging Egypt-Palestine relations, on the other which is the essence of colonialism and imperialism. Hopefully, Egypt moves forward – not backward- in easing the decades’ long sufferings of defenseless Palestinians by the Zionist criminal regime, promoted by western terrocracies - and not other wise.

In view of oscillating peace process vaguely mediated by the global dictator USA, Palestinians have to set their house in order by forgetting politics for the time being. Freedom, security and safe prosperous life should be the collective concerns of PLO. Palestinian decision to approach the UN for the much delayed statehood has upset all terror calculations of Israeli regime.

Israel makes maximum use of the ongoing global terror war by the NATO terror syndicate and continue showcase its terror power in Palestine. Confrontations between Israeli forces and Palestinians are nothing new, a fanatic fascist conflict now portends a new kind of friction as the scare water resources of Israel, the West Bank and Gaza come under increasing strain from growing populations, rising living standards and recurrent droughts.

Maybe Israel and its western sponsors are wary and confused about the new developments in Palestine. It is the prime duty of USA and Quartet to help establish a much delayed Palestine state without further delay. Apart from making Palestine self reliant and secure from Zionist or any other crimes, now it is also the collective responsibility of all Muslim nations, especially Turkey, Egypt, Iran and Arab world, to positively complete the Rafah Gate reopening into the creation of an independent Palestine state - to exist without fear of Israeli aggression and genocides - a reality at the earliest.

The pathetic conditions of Palestinians must be improved many times so as to catch up with the lost years. Any decision in this regard must be laid out with a specific schedule and clear objectives defining ways to find alternative jobs without causing explosive situations further harming the life of defenseless Palestinians. The boycott of jobs in the Israeli colonies may increase trust among Palestinian workers in the seriousness of efforts to find a solution to their difficult situation.

Before asking the Palestinians to quit their services to Zionist illegal settlement proliferation on their Palestine lands, they must be provided with alternative income source or provision of monthly allowances. The PNA led by Abbas should move to declare explicitly a boycott of jobs in these colonies that will also help to strangle their economy, and seek earnest measures to open up new job markets for Palestinian workers. PLO must provide the people with credible training programs where these workers can acquire new skills needed in the ‘supply and demand' market away from the colonies' activity. Until now, the Palestinian government has only asked these workers to register their names with a promise to find them alternative jobs.

Palestinians must be provided with huge aid for reconstruction and stability of Palestine. In order to live like human beings with at least minimum dignity and security, Palestinians, especially in Gaza strip require additional resources. World economic bodies have a proactive role in making Palestine a stable and prosperous nation.

Make Palestinians self-Reliant and let Rafah Gate shine with a positive message to all oppressed nations!
