The bleeding crisis of Gaza, it’s nothing new to be introduced here. Short time, thousands killed, no surprise if the news reached the knowledge of people worldwide and now the mask camouflaging the hypocrites are torn apart. Breach of international laws is crystal-clear, incapability of the United Nation cannot be anymore obvious, domination of veto powers, points that will definitely boost up my answer script if I am sitting for Public International Law paper right now. I mean, the current situation speaks for itself. America through its veto power had sanctioned many countries for various kind of reasons but ironically it is the big ‘abang long’ behind Israel, basing endless support for terrorism. Yes Mr. Obama can deny many critics (oh, it wasn’t the story now, he clearly admitted America’s support to Israel previously) but he cannot stop the world from showing endless support to put a stop dot on the genocide committed.
As for my country, we are very supportive towards the Palestinians. Malaysians, through every single possible medium are demonstrating endless support and love for the our brothers and sisters there. True that we are incapable of giving aids as per injected by America to Israel, but we are exactly doing the least we can do; humanity missions, open critics, du’a, and even boycotts. Leaving me in a big awe, I’ll be rightfully shameful not to be a party to all these.
But, that’s all we are capable of. While we are praying for the rightful judgment, many more innocents are bleeding, are dying. As it goes, Allah SWT helps those who help themselves.
One day Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, noticed a Bedouin leaving his camel without tying it. He asked the Bedouin, “Why don’t you tie down your camel?” The Bedouin answered, “I put my trust in Allah.” The Prophet then said, “Tie your camel first, then put your trust in Allah”
This calls for urgent respond by the entity who should lead the support, none other than the United Nation.
It’s truly heart breaking to see the apparent reaction by United Nation; laying down the couch, just watching the drama while popping popcorn. Pretty helpful, huh? Even Ban Ki Moon called for a ceasefire by Hamas, which is like you’re asking a woman being raped to stop struggling from Mr. Rapist. Smart. But that’s how it rolls. One who studies Article 2(3) of the UN Charter will understand. The precise scope of the obligation is, however, that states should settle dispute peacefully, not that they should settle them. Meaning to say, there is no general rule for a state to settle its grievances. Rather, if the state decides to put an end to a crisis, it should be done in a peaceful manner. Hence, as clear as you can see in the absence of general obligation to settle a dispute, the jurisdiction of the ICJ, an organ to UN is not compulsory.
Genius law-maker. But really, if UN is honestly serious pertaining to the crisis, they do have options including actions by security council, settlement by regional machinery, arbitration, conciliation, etc.
Again, sadly it wasn’t the story.
Never mind, come what may for us who believes in humanity we’ll keep doing our part. We won’t stop praying to The Almighty. In the meantime, we are here for you, our oppressed brothers and sisters. We are one in unity, and above all we have Allah SWT, and Allah Hears every unspoken words, Sees every unseen wound, Mends every unbearable pain. Have faith on Him and be strong!
