The neverending glitches between Palestine & Israel. This week, I have been so superbusy with my school workload to complete Pelan Strategik for Panitia Sains & Persatuan Sains (new formats after 3 times changes within this ONE YEAR! You know our Jabatan Pelajaran Negeri, right?) & managing 2 “in-house” courses of both KSSR English & Science (as I went for both), back-to-back. But I ain’t going to dish about that. I am going to write about Palestine; as we all know inevitably is an entry full of massacres, blood and deaths.
In 2012, Israel launched a big scale attack to Palestine called “Operation Pillar of Defense”. Obviously, Israel used ‘self-defense’ lame excuse to combat the defenseless Palestinians; and what the world can do? Nothing! Why? Because Israel is backed by United States. So, you know who rules the world now as the Puppeteer, and who is the marionette? Sigh. You can read my writing dated 1st December 2012 at https://undomiel84.wordpress.com/2012/12/01/bloodbath-between-aliyah-nakba-the-never-ending-reality-of-palestine-israel/.
This time around, the attack is ignited due to a murder of 3 Israeli youths who were claimed to be kidnapped on 12th June 2014. When the bodies of these seminary students were found, Israel Government automatically jumped into conclusion that it was Hamas’ doing although they lacked proof and no leading evidence to be found. With a vengeful intonation, a statement was issued by Danny Danon, the Israel Deputy Minister of Defense :-
The 3 Israelis youths found to be murdered.
“Our mission will not be complete until all the terror organizations are deterred from attacking Israelis and understand once and for all that the people of Israel will not be threatened. Hamas will pay.”
Perhaps as a retaliation to the murder, just days after the incident happened, Mohammed Abu Khdeir, a 17-years-old Palestinian boy was allegedly dragged into a car, kidnapped, murdered and burned. It was said the kidnapping was recorded in a video and his burned body was found at West Jerusalem. This provoked anger amongst the Palestinians to protest on the streets. And this led to the escalating military combat of Israel and still on-going.
The body of Mohammed Abu Khdeir who was burned and murdered at West Jerusalem, a retaliation to the 3 murders of Israeli youths.
All due to murders committed by extremists from both parties. It is a sad scene to see that ignorance of a few people led to the deaths of thousands innocent lives.
Mohammed Abu Khdeir’s cousin, Tariq Abu Khdeir who was detained by the Israeli policemen and beaten due to ‘interrogation’ as a suspect. BUT, apparently this boy is an American-born Palestinian. Due to this, it became quite an uproar. The abused was recorded in a video. But still, no dramatic actions are taken by US Government Probably because he is not white.
The question is : When will this to be end? It has been 66 years since the Palestinians were shooed and cast away from their homeland on the fateful 1948, dubbed as the Black Nakba. Goodness knows. You know, Palestine is not an issue of religiosity, it is about humanity.
Video where Tariq Abu Khdeir was beaten excessively by the Israeli policemen. Proof is evident yet no actions taken except diplomatic warning.
