2/11/17 ISRAEL-PALESTINE CONFLICT .... how could Malaysia act differently to help to resolve the issue (DRAFT)

The world had suffered too much inflicted by the Israel-Arabs conflicts. Since it creation on 14 May, 1948 by the British, Israel has never been left to be fully in peace and harmony and accordingly for the Arabs. The worst victims were the Palestinians. The Arabs and Israel had engaged in conventional wars, and now to continue with the guerrilla style warfare. The British, and definitely the whole Europe and Russia, they by all means want Israel to exist to where it is. All of them in the past, had bloody bad experienced with the Jews. They never want the Jews to flood their states. Religiously, socially and economically, the Jews were and are not quite acceptable to the Western Cowboy and Viking-Aryan norms. The American definitely need the Israel to be weakly strong in the Middle East for strategic economic, military and political reasons. Europe, Russia, Australia, and America had great belief, they had found the Jews to their fullest advantages by keeping the State of Israel to where it is ie in the Palestine. Asia, Africa, and South America, I would say, most are behaving to their situational economic and political interest over the matter.

(2) There was no crisis that had dragged the world or region to great and longing catastrophe. The Jews from day one of their existence, I would say is a 'nation' that exist at the mercy and exploitation of others. Israel-Arabs conflict I would say is the only long lasting conflict that the world is sustaining. The Middle East, the Islamic world and the world in general had been badly affected by the conflict direct or indirectly. Thus I have a strong conviction, a peaceful and harmony living of the Israel and Palestine is paramount to a great prosperity to the whole world. In the old days, the symbiosis of Arabs Egyptian and Jews took them to great prosperity. Once either one began to dominate the others, chaotic came knocking them leveled to ground. This writing is intended for me to layout small thinking for the process.

(3) Today Jews can be categorized into three main groups. First the Zionist. The group was founded by Theodor Herzl through his book Der Judestaat in 1896. This is a group formed and founded at times of Jewish diaspora in Europe in the 19th century. Due to the antisemitic movement in Europe and Russia, nurtured the Nationalist movement among them to come back and reestablished themselves at their homeland in Jerusalem which then was under the conquest of the Ottoman Empire. Basically they are the minority Nationalist and
yet they are the Godfather to the overall Jews. They raised themselves to be the savior, messiah of the Jews. Secondly, mostly I would say are the majority modern Jews all over the world and even in Israel. Most of them are in America and European big cities. These are the common new world citizen. Race, State and religion are not their main concern. They love to live in this world just as others are enjoying themselves. They are looking forward to good great living. The third group are the Orthodox. These are the people that are devoted to Judaism. These are the religious Jews. They do nothing but to preserve Jewish and Judaism traditions. Basically, nobody can separate the Orthodox Jews from Jerusalem. Jerusalem to them is the birth place and the ever after their resting place.

(4) For the Zionist Jews, the existence of today Israel state is a matter of their basic need to exploit the whole world with their liberal-capitalist game. They love to hid under the pretext of Free Market and borderless enterprises. The British establishment of Israel for the Jews, definitely angered the Arabs especially the Palestine whom then either being expelled or treated as third class people ie not even as the citizen. With such, turbulent is always at the door step of Israel and Arabs. Sustaining turbulent in the Middle East is a lucrative business nurturing process. It is not only about weapon and warfare logistic deals, but most important is to make the overall global market to be in great uncertainty. With the Middle East instability, meaning there will be a great world economic instability, which provide the fundamental for the good growth of speculative market development. Huge money world wide are made at times of volatile market situation. The Jews worldwide apart from being good in business, they are all over the place being denied to own fix capital especially agricultural land. Thus, the Jews are very dependent on the Zionist Jews as Godfather to their survival, for the earlier are cunning and very successful and are very wealthy business group . Thus then the Zionist Jews lures the general Jews to be on their side again by meant of religious exploitation and being Godfather. The prolong struggle over the ownership of Mount Temple is a mere pretext of the Zionist Jews to deceit the majority common and Orthodox Jews to be at bay with the Zionist in the fight for the existence and expansion of the Israel State.

(5) Historically, on this planet, by virtue of Abraham acquisition (buying) of Mt Hebron (?) then turned as a burial site for his wife Sarah, Isaac and his wife, and Jacob and wife; I could say Mt Hebron is the only piece of land that is hereditary Jews'. Thereon, even in Europe and America the Jews were denied to own any farm land. But then, Abraham was never a Jews. He came from Iraq (Terah), then move on to Canaan and only his graveyard (as per Jewish claims) is in today Jerusalem ie at Cave Machpelah. By virtue of Jacob's graveyard whom was the patriarch of the Jews is at Cave Machpelah, at Mt Hebron,  thus the Jews are claiming the whole of Jerusalem as theirs. Accordingly, since the Jewish Kingdom ie from King Solomon and King Heron were considered as the peak of the Jewish State, now based on such, the Jews especially the Zionist Jews are having the greed to claim not only Jerusalem but the areas of the former King Solomon and Herod Jewish empire as the legitimate boundary of Israel. History had proven that the empire of Solomon is not meant for the Jews only but to cover all other tribes to the north, south and even east of Hebron (then Jerusalem). Thus Jewish Empire as a State, is a State for all the people residing there and then. But unfortunately, when Israel was established in 1948, the imperialist British made it just for the Jews. The Palestine then were made stateless and never being part of Israel. They had to settle at the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem. Only on 15 September, 1988 did Yaser Arafat the President of the Palestine Liberation Army (PLO) declared a Palestine State. The United Nation only recognized Palestine as as a non-member country by 2012.

(6) In the Islamic world, the Islamic sympathy ever since 22 September 1948, especially to the Palestine miseries makes Israel their hatred subject. But then, since the Arabs had made the Palestine as their subject by right they should had immediately and smartly counter established a Palestine State, of which only come to being 40 years later. The 40 years gap had turned the Palestine as the nomad of the modern Arabs. The hatred among the Arabs and Jews is not much of religious differences. But I can agree, their fundamental religious differences had been exploited from within and externally to keep them apart. For the Arabs per se, I could visualize, the similar bad feeling of the European to the Jews in 1930-40s over their Palestine brothers indeed was and is the very reason why they seem to behaving differential stands over the Palestine. The Palestinian, I could say are the Jewish Arab. They are much smarter, resilient, and much more discipline than the majority Arabs. Their much earlier association with the Babylon, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Byzantium, Persian and even Turk civilizations had made them a better Arabs. Indeed, the non-existence of a Palestine State is to the Arabs best interest, similar to the Kurdish fate. Every now and then, we will see a or groups of Arabs countries will put a show to fight for the Palestine, and yet such is nothing but to keep himself or them for their own political grip at home. A clear showpiece of the Arabs hypocrisy. There are about 12 million Palestine distributed in 29 countries worldwide. In Palestine, there are only 4.7 million while there are 2.144 million in Jordan and 1.75 million in Israel. Saudi, the richest Muslim country, accommodated only about 400,000 Palestinian.  Comparatively, there are 14.41 million Jews worldwide, with 6.5 million are in Israel and America houses about 5.7-6,8 million of them. Indeed, the West and Zionist are making a mockery of the Israel State existence, while the Arabs are turning the Palestine State into toys game play.

(7) In reality, the Jews and Arabs particularly the Palestine, they were soil brothers. They came from the same birth place the Soil of Terah then Canaan. Once, the ancestor of the Jews ie the family of Jacob (also known as Israel) was residing somewhere in Canaan (Palestine), sort of today Israel. Due to long famine, they then migrated to Egypt. The migration, one can see such as a punishment to Joseph's elder brothers cruelty or Allah answer to Jacob praying that he always wanted to be with his beloved son, Joseph. Joseph earlier own, was among the twelve sons of Jacob, but was treated badly by his other elders brothers. The other brothers due to their zealous of Jacob's over liking of Joseph had thrown him into a death well, where thereafter by the blessing of Allah Joseph was picked by a passing traders and sold to the Pharaoh palace. Thereon, he then became one of the key Minister in the Pharaoh  administration. Egypt prosper at times of Joseph-Pharaoh administration. Accordingly, the Jacob family gain lots of advantages, they breed fast and being real enterprising despite they being enslaved to the extend they began to surpass the excellent of the native Egypt. The then Pharaoh, for being so great, had lifted himself to the level of God, which contradicted to the belief of the Jacob's. The conflict then arose between the Egypt particularly the Pharaoh mainly due to jealousy, greed and as well as superstition.  An estimated about 1,000,000 Jews were then lead off Egypt by Moses AS (whom exist in 1391-1271BC) to Sinai on en route to the promised land. Archaeological excavation had indicated the establishment of Jewish State somewhere at the Jordan river in 1208-3BC.

(8) I could say, since the founding of the Jews tribe ie at even Jacob's time, the Jew had not been left in peace. There were always "chaotic" within and outside of the society. Jacob himself was facing great conflict with his own twin brother Esau due to differential treatment of their father (Isaac) and mother (Sarah). Isaac was said to favor Esau to Jacob. Sarah interference, then had developed a conflict between Jacob and Esau. The Jews everlasting conflicts, I would believe, firstly, probably as repayment of Sarah ie Abraham's elder wife vis Jacob's grandmother, zealous over Hagar ie Abraham's Egyptian wife whom gave birth to Abraham eldest son Ismael, which then made Abraham's descendants to split into two nations ie Jews and Arabs. Secondly, I would say probably due to cruelty over their own blood brother ie Joseph which amounting to betrayal to their father will for them to take good care of him. Definitely, thirdly, which I believe is the main cause, is due to the Jews deviance to Allah wishes. Since at times of Moses in Sinai, the Jews had been behaving to devoid from the true command of Allah. In the Al Quran, the Jews are being referred as those people whom love to deceit of the truth, they knew yet they hide those truth. The Jews went astray after the death of King Solomon. Even to the time of Jesus ie a bloodline of Solomon (?) they behaving worst by inflicting the worst act onto the messenger of God. They made the Roman to torture Jesus.

(9) Cruelty among the Jews themselves indeed was unbearable. Since Jacob's, the twelves brothers hardly came to term. Even at times of great distress in exodus, they loved to be distinctly twelves tribes rather a solid Jewish "nation". Thus at the times of the old day of Israel establishment, they were split into Judah and Israel. Infighting among them, either as brothers, cousins or any other relatives combination were their past way of lives. So many books had been written indicating even their priests were slaughtered, almost wiped out due to zealous and greed among themselves. Indeed it was at the mercy of the Babylon that their books were recompiled and best preserved.

(10) Historically, the Jews should have no reason to be in conflict with their Arabs brothers. Since, Abraham days, the Arabs particularly the Egyptian had been their savior. At time of hardship in Canaan, Abraham ie the grandfather of Jacob (Israel) need to take refuge to Egypt. In Egypt Allah made him to have Hagar, ie the slave lady of the Pharaoh as gift. Then with the encouragement of Sarah, Abraham took Hagar to be his second wife and thus giving birth to Ismael. Thereon, Sarah was also blessed with pregnancy despite her old age 90 years old, while Abraham was already 100 years old.  My question, will Sarah be awarded a son, if it was not due to Allah blessing for her to accept Hagar, an Arab as Abraham second wife? Could the Jews be in existence if Hagar ie the Egyptian Arabs never came to Abraham's life? Why did then Sarah was having bad feeling over Hagar and Ismael, an Arab blood? She seem not thankful to Allah blessing in the process for her to have a heir.  Accordingly, later, Sarah daughter in-law ie the wife of Isaac whose name was also Sarah was having problem with her other twin son ie Esau (brother of Jacob) by the fact that Esau was more friendly to the Canaan (Arabs). Indeed in the early history of the Jews it seem that their women were key factors in determining whom and where they'd be. Probably due to such reason, the Jewish women has been sideline in many affairs of the Jewish community. They comparatively to this day are having less freedom despite their now being westernized. Not only Abraham had to take refuge in Egypt, but Jacob ie his grandson, the founder of the Jews (or Israel) as well. All through the classical history of the Jews, Egypt had came to their rescue for many times.  At times of Roman, Byzantium, Babylon, Persian and Christian Renaissance, Jerusalem ie the Jews in particular had always been conquered and destroyed leveled to earth. But historically, it was the Arabs that always came to their savior especially the Egypt. Even in the era of the Islamic Renaissance, Saladin Al Ayyubid, the Egyptian general turned caliph had help to liberated Jerusalem from the grip of the Christian crusades. Jerusalem was always at peace at times of their association with Islam beginning from Omar Al Khataab period. But interestingly, the Arabs now became the Jews most bitter enemy, due to nothing but I believe, because of religious, political and economic exploitation from within and externally. The West indeed had successfully broke off the peaceful relationship of Jerusalem Jews and the Arabs (Islam).

(11) The promised land for the Jews, based on the Jewish history is nothing difficult to comprehend. From Terah in today Iraq Abraham migrated to live in Canaan. Since Abraham was "the father" of the Jews (and Arabs), thus they claimed Allah promised land must be the land where Abraham had spent all his lives. Such, is a simple human land claim logic and looks very reasonable. But again, when Moses was ordered to take the Jews to the promised land, they were specifically ordered firstly to fight against the Canaan idolaters before they could enter the gate of Jerusalem.  Thus by comparing theological perspective to human-made biased history, there seem to be a conflict of which exactly is the promised land. Nonetheless to my simple understanding, definitely Jerusalem has something to do with the promised land and not the Canaan (Palestine) land as a whole. My reasoning is simple, first Abraham was not originally a Jew. Jews came from the descendant of his grandson Jacob. Secondly, Allah commanded the Jews to enter the gate of Jerusalem to the promised land, and prior to such, they must firstly defeated the Canaan.  Thus Canaan was never part of that promised land. The promised land then must be having to do with the gate of Jerusalem ie either Jerusalem itself or part of it.

(12) Now come to a very interesting point; "Why did Allah promised a small piece of land to the Jews?" In the past, Jerusalem must be a gated city or sort of a fortress city. Such city development nature was common in those day especially to protect the people from intruders. The Palestine whom occupied the coast of Canaan were considered aggressive maritime intruders in those day. They were much superior in the warfare strategy as compared to the local. Say Jerusalem was a gated city. Then Jerusalem is a very small place as compare to the whole of Canaan. If one look back at the Map at para (7), then compare to the illustration at para (10) and (11), one can clearly sees that Jerusalem indeed is a small place. The issue then, say based on my argument at para (11) why did Allah promised such a small place for the Jews? My answer, I presume Allah the Al Mighty had known the Orthodox Jews ie the Real Jews, their number won't grow fast and big as the culture they are going to develop and adhere to are a culture of diminishing growth. Jerusalem then, I would think would be considered more than enough to fit the Orthodox Jews. But today claims of Israel, I believe has nothing to do with the Orthodox Jews interest but a mere Nationalist Zionist greed as well as the British-West conspiracy.

(13) The West, love Israel to be as it is, for the good of sustaining global market uncertainties. No doubt the Middle East store the most oil, but the West do also have good stock of oil. Keeping the Middle East volatile through the Israel aggression is the best game to keep the oil supplies uncertainties, thus influencing the global market. With such, the capitalist speculative-based market will nurtured well and both the West and Zionist Jews will harvest the most.

(14) Now let let look at another critical issue; "Why did Allah promised Jerusalem to the Jews? Why not any other places, say Sinai, Eritrea or Switzerland? If one study the Al Quran deeply, one will notice, it is the nature of Allah to promise something as reward to a deed that He wants one to obey. To some extend, the Jews had been loyal to monotheism, the religion of Abraham to the time of Moses despite those surrounding them were idolaters.  Jerusalem is the graveyard to Abraham (?) and Isaac. As Muslim, I can agree that Judaism had involved into what it is today. It is not the Judaism that Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Solomon etc that had passed on earlier on. Indeed Islam of Abraham over time had evolved into Judaism as it is of today. Nonetheless, I have great respect over Judaism for they had one away or another had kept most of the principle of monotheism as mooted by Abraham. They had been loyal to monotheism. Thus it is logical, for the Jews to inherit their fatherland.  To the Jews, Allah offered Jerusalem as a reward if they abide by the 10 commandments that He sent through Moses.  Most of the Jews abide to such order, so they are spiritually entitle to such promised. Secondly, Allah wanted the Jews to get the barbaric Canaan to be part of the Jewish monotheism faith, which was Islam in its early stage. That made Jerusalem is the closest place for them to achieve the mission. Thus, the Al Quran acknowledgement of the Jewish claim over Jerusalem was conditional. Nonetheless, from the Al Quran itself, the Muslims must knew and admitted that the Jews up to King Solomon, they had abide to the command of Allah, such from the time of David to Solomon, Allah had made both to preside in Jerusalem. For such reason, then Jerusalem was blessed but thereon especially after the death of King Solomon, the Jews again went astray. From thereon to this day, the Jews were and are sort of living to their everlasting miseries.

(15) At the time span of David and Solomon, both presided their governing from Jerusalem. Definitely, the Jewish State had expand beyond Jerusalem. Solomon had managed to integrate the so called the Canaan land with Jerusalem to form the so called Jewish Kingdom. Nonetheless came to his son after his death, the Jewish Kingdom then split into two ie the North which was the State of Israel and the South which formed the State of Judah. Solomon was recorded to build the first Jewish temple at Jerusalem. In the Muslim perspective, Solomon was a Muslim. Thus his temple, I would say probably is the first Masjid built after the Kaabah by Adam AS. The long ruined Kaabah was then rebuilt by Abraham and Ismael.  Kaabah after Ismael, over time, due to the influence of the idolatry Sanaa Yaman, I presume, though initially both Ismael and Isaac pay respect (pilgrimage) to Allah at the same Kaabah, but due to the flooding of idol goddess, those Jews whom behold to One God concept I would believe had abandoned Kaabah as their sacred place and turned to Jerusalem instead. The Solomon temple or the Masjid Sulaiman, as I would called it, became the new kiblah for the Jews and may be later the early Arab Muslims at the early time of Islamic revival in the Arabs land.

(16) It looks like at time of the Jews were a stronghold of monotheism, the Arabs ie the descendents of Ismael, Isaac brother, for being influence by idolaters San'a, they turned to the same course of goddess so much so the Kaabah becoming the center of idolaters. I believe, that where thereon the turning point of the Arabs Jahilliah Civilization engulf the whole of Arabs peninsula.

(17) The main fact is, the Al Quran recognized Allah promised of Jerusalem to the faithful People of the Book, the  Jews. Nonetheless Allah's promises are with strict condition(s). Nonetheless, as time past, especially after the death of King Solomon, the Jews had deviated from what had been commanded upon them. The Jews, upon their runaway from Egypt under the leadership of Moses were ordered to return to the promised land on condition they abide by the Taurah (and later Zabur) and to call upon the Canaan to submit to the same, but instead, they made Mose's, David's and Solomon's religion into exclusively Judaism. They treated the Canaan as gentiles whom were not entitle to the religion of Allah. The death of Solomon was the landmark for the Jewish great deviation from the true course of the Taurah and Zabur, so much so, Allah then sent Jesus as messiah to take the Jews back to the true path. Unfortunately, due to their ego and arrogant, Jesus was badly victimized and denied being a prophet sent to them as one of the prophets that they should accepted. Jesus was 'crucified' and Allah raised Jesus to the Heaven, and promised to send him back here on earth to  tell the truth for both the Jews and Christians over Islam. The original Judaism and Christianity in the Islamic belief were indeed Islam in its progressing form.

(18) To this juncture, we should now have a very clear understanding over the nature or the fact of the Jews especially the State of Israel. First and foremost, the Jews were a weak nation so much so Allah the Al Mighty have to take good care of them. He had chosen among the best prophets to be their leaders. Thus realizing such Theodor Hezl was right for the need to give birth to a group of Jewish Nationalist now called Zionist as Godfather to the Jews, failing which, they will perish. He as well as any human being, he has all the right to care for his own people. Establishing a Jewish State is fundamental for such purpose. Secondly, the Al Quran recognized that Jerusalem is the promised land to the Jews whom were the People of the Book. Accordingly, based on Islamic spirit, for good inter-human relationship, Muslim must honor others sacred places, thus the Jews must be left to their original sacred place especially the Temple of Solomon. Muslim should have no problem of recognizing the Temple of Solomon in its original sense for Solomon was also the prophet of Islam. Thus part of Jerusalem must be made free access to the Jews especially among their Orthodox. So much so, Jerusalem must be recognized to be part of the Jewish State. The Jews are having both moral and spiritual standing to make part of Jerusalem as part of their State. Thirdly, Jews are unwanted by the West for as long as they keep themselves as Jews. The Jews were and are indeed wanderers, musafir. The Al Quran had made it clear, that Muslims must have mercy over travellers. Islam, especially the Al Quran had made it clear that Muslims must assist travellers to their needs. As a lost nation the Jews need to be given a place to settle. They are equally mahluk Allah and thus, the Muslims as the caliph, must care for all mahluk of Allah.

(19) In the eyes of Muhammad SAW, Umar Al Khataab was very dear to him ie second after Abu Bakar. Umar in many incidences was having the sense of the future. He was a very wise man indeed. He has great wisdom. With regard to Jerusalem, Umar conquest of the place was not at all with a spill drop of blood. He was greatly accepted by the Jerusalem population at the time, Jews, Christians and even "gentiles". To me the conquest is not really significant, but one thing that the whole world must recognized. Umar, at time when he want to say his thankful pray (?) to Allah he refused to pray in any of either the Jewish and or Christian temples. He if I can recalled correctly in my reading, saying "I don't want to set precedence to the future". What did he actually meant by such? My predicament, I believe, Umar had a sense on how today Israel-Palestine matter should be resolved. He then built Al Aqsa there be. This small place as part of the larger Jerusalem is called Baitulmuqadis.

(20) The Arabs world is under siege. There are too much fighting and infighting in the Arabs world. If we look back to the history of the Islamic revival in the Arabs world, they need to be Jahilliah prior to be reverted to Islam. Today, the Arabs are on the clear path back to Jahilliah. As Allah had said: "He had given them the bright righ path, yet they chosen to walk the darkness, so lost they'll be." Their tomorrow Jahilliah may not be equal to their yesterday, but still they be Jahilliah. Their path to tomorrow Jahilliah is well guided by the American and allies West. The Arabs had forgotten, their wealth which suppose to be share for the good of mankind, yet they are now exhausting their wealth to fight among themselves. I agreed, they prayed to Allah but their hearts are filled with the Western hypocrisies. The Western are draining their wealth by the game of capitalism and liberal democracy hypocrisy. Time may come, when their wealth are all gone, the Arabs will be back to the true path of Allah at times they are useless to the West.

(21) Thus for Malaysia, as Allah had clearly said in the Al Quran at time of sinful course kemungkaran is in action, we are given three choices of actions ie "We either corrected it by real hard action, or merely requesting for a stop of the act or the worst to leave and be not part of the act. Definitely, the first choice is the most preferred by Allah as He implies in the Al Quran Surah Al Kahfi. Al Kahfi initially work hard to call people to good deed, yet due to no progress they got bored and turned their back from all the wrong doing of their times, thus Allah made them asleep for 390 years, and when they woke up, nothing had changed. Accordingly for almost 900 years Yunus AS had been calling his people to be good, yet no one responded. He got fed-up and abandoned his course. Allah made him repented and came back for his dakwah, and then he succeeded well. Thus, since 1948 to this day, probably based on certain Quranic interpretation style by certain quarters in the Muslims world depending on who and where they are, I would say had given rise to numerous action plans previously being taken by the Arabs and Muslims world to resolve the Israel-Palestine conflicts but has yet to bear fruitful. Thing had becoming worst on the Palestine side. They are weakening. I would say, humanity had collapsed in Palestine. The Israel is getting stronger. The Arabs are in prolong turbulent economically, politically and socially. Definitely the West are enjoying the burning fire from across the river. Thus, what should be the Malaysian stand and action to bring peace to the Palestine, Arabs and Israel?

(22) I'm specially looking at Malaysia, due to certain reason. We used to have an international clout though now may be a fallacy, thus with such position we should be able to bring the Muslims world in particular to be on the serious and concerted effort to resolve the Palestine-Israel issues. Secondly, among all of the Muslims states, Malaysia I would say is having least domestic problem, again another fallacy, and thus we could provide some political and resources focus to assist to bring peace and harmony to these two victimized brothers. I have a very strong belief, Malaysia could provide strong leadership in resolving the issue.

(23) If Malaysia can bring peace and harmony to the Israel and Palestine, indeed I would say and vision out, Malaysia indeed will be crafting a new world civilization. Placing Malaysia especially the Malays to contribute significantly in the making of new civilization, should be of a greatest incentive for Malaysia to pursue the establishment of peace and harmony in Palestine-Israel. I'm confident that the peace and harmony of the Israel and Palestine would impact greatly onto the regional and global economy, politic, ideology, and cultures. In Shaa Allah. Indeed about 5,000 years ago, Allah through Nile, Euphrates, Ganges and Yang Tze had proven such. Devoid of greed and revenge, the world definitely will come to great growth and prosperity. The Malays in the 7-15 centuries had contributed to the world civilization making process, thus, now I have a strong conviction we can do it again.

(24) As many times I had said, the Malays we are blessed for Allah had given us Islam. The only reason why Islam was honored upon us, is to equip ourselves to be the best caliph. Islam is the guidance for us to be the best caliph. Allah had chosen us, the Malays to be among the best caliph, thus we must honor our responsibility to such a virtue. I believe, in the eyes of Allah, the best of us is when we are able to be the best caliph. Human being were and are created to be caliph. In today world game, I can see both the Palestine and Jews are travelers musafir. Both I classified as musafir for both are still in search of peace and harmony. They had not tasted real peace and harmony for the almost 60 years. Their present generations, since they were born in 1948 to this day, they had not taste a real great moment of peace and harmony. Their souls indeed are in thirst wanderers; musafir of peace and harmony. As Muslims, as Allah's forbidding people, we have all the obligation to bring peace and harmony to these two brothers, the people of Allah. Definitely the question is how?

(25) To this far, we had been deploying our human logic way in trying to resolve the Israel-Palestine conflict. Firstly the UN established Israel as the Jewish State. In doing so, they ignored the fate of the Palestine over the same State. At that point in time, to resolve the European Jews diaspora was the key issue. The Jews there and then were the nuisance of the West. They love to get rid of the Jews from their NIMBY. They took the best advantage of 'Palestine' being the subject of the British to the fullest in drawing the boundary of the Israel State. They confirmed to the demand of the Zionist and yet brushed aside the interest of the Palestine. Accordingly, while on the Palestine side, after prolong hegemony of their Arabs brothers,  only in 1988 they were relieved to "Independence". Their independent then indeed was nothing but to be self governing away from the Arabs power struggle. Yaser Arafat the then President of PLO ever since had been a ball game to Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Jordan-Lebanon and Iran. The Palestine from 1948 to 1988 and even to this day, were continually expose to Israel and Arabs game play. They indeed had never been left to take their own course. To me, indeed Palestine is still a subject of Arabs power struggle. Collectively, Israel-Palestine is a subject of World Power Game-Toy. We failed to bring peace and harmony to both Israel and Palestine, not because we failed, but too many purposely want it to fail. Thus so long, the initiative of bringing peace and harmony to both Israel and Arabs are within the course of human self interest, such will always come with failure.

(26) My thought, the basic tenet to the resolution is, as human being, every man is the guest of Allah. He need a place to stay. In the eyes of Allah, one must honor a guest. Allah had made enough for everybody. Thus the Jews deserve their own State. The same applies to the Palestine. The UN had recognized both Israel and Palestine, except now, the Palestine State must be given the same statue as any other independent sovereign State. The UN must treated Palestine at par to any other nation. The Arabs must leave the Palestine to their own course. Thus the existence of Israel and Palestine now must be taken as given. Impossible for us to turn back to before 1948, unless the world is crazy to go for the WWIII. Therefore, the basic tenet of Islam upon both the Jews and Palestine is "considered" honored. The next thing is to bring peace and harmony among them. For such, their right to be an independent sovereign state must be honored. Their basic right is to self govern for them to build peaceful and harmony living. For such to happen, Israel has all the upper hand. Jews being the Jews, their way of lives is always about advantage trading. Even at times of their great prophets, they always do trading in their dealing with Allah. But as Muslims, those should never constraint us from coming with the best leadership, caliph deed. Indeed it is our piety challenge that we must cross over any bridges for us to gain the best, especially the hereafter best.

(27) Today Palestine (Map in para 26) is similar to Brunei in the context of Malaysia (Sarawak). If Brunei-Sarawak relationship could be established in Palestine-Israel, then there will be minimum teething issues. For all reasons, the Palestinian Authority (PA) need access from the West Bank to Gaza. They either have to have access through Israel and or Jordan-Egypt. Unfortunately, in today scenario, they can't easily have either. Israel is not willing to grant them good access for reason of security. Jordan and Egypt would not be willing to invest to develop efficient and convenient transport system between the West Bank and Gaza for the Palestine. They can't afford it. Both are poor rich countries. I'm thinking they are stingy short sighted nations. Unfortunately Palestine indeed is an interlock State. Its international boundaries is locked within unfriendly countries. The dilemma of Nepal, Laos, Paraguay, Bolivia, Central Africa Republic, etc is what the Palestine is facing. Its most international frontier ie the Gaza strip is  disintegrated from the West Bank in the faraway entity. Such made the Palestine economy in real bad shape. When goods, people and resources are not freely having access to the State, such will slowly turns the State into a State of Pariah. Miseries will accrue. Hunger among the young Palestine now turns to hatred and violent. Blood thirst becoming a daily food. So much so, the Palestine see Israel and to some extend the Arabs as the cause of their miseries. My worries time will come, the Palestine wil hate both the Israel and Arabs. Therefore, the issue now is chicken and egg or egg and chicken. Security or access?

(28) Despite being interlocked, despite being poor, again if one looks at the Arabs Islamic Renaissance 1,400 years ago, there is nothing impossible if one follows the good course of Allah. Brilliantly at times of great hardship, Allah made Muhammad SAW to migrated to Yathrib, Medina. What was Medina comparatively with Mecca then? The whole of Muhammad SAW followers then were in great lacking. They lack in numbers, they lack in logistics, but then how come they be great to even to have the strength to take on Byzantium and Persian the two greatest super powers of the time?  All is about wisdom and strategies. Palestine, should mirror Muhammad SAW in their strategic approach to glory, but with clear intention, to bring peace and harmony to all.

(29) On the Egyptian, Saudi and Jordan, these nations I would believe should submit their faith solely to Allah. Through Muhammad SAW, the son of Mecca, the son of Arabia, his loving over the ummah surpass anything. He was willing to be poor to build on the strength of the Ummah. Saudi must always remember, the wealth underneath Mecca in Islam is due to the doa of Abraham AS, the Renaissance father of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Abraham AS was the son of Canaan, the Palestine. Thus his legendary for the Islamic woprld and Arabs must never be dischard too lightly to such, his people, the Palestine be left to suffer to no end. We should go for sharing of blesses to be much blesses. Allah doesn't go to war with anything to get things to submit to Him. The Egyptian, Saudi, Jordan and the whole Muslim world must look at the solution of Palestine-Israel conflict from our strong theological stands.

(30) Golda Meir, among the key founders of the State of Israel had passed away (Dec., 8, 1978). Yaser Arafat, the founder of PLO had also passed away (Nov. 11, 2014). They represent the hardcore fighter among their societies, Jews and Palestine. Basically, the hardcore from both sides is perishing. Today leaders, and definitely those after them, just as the Malays, their defined dignity will definitely not about a State. They would just love to have good living lives. The State is secondary and probably just a matter of convenience. These are the citizens of a globalized village.  There's nothing wrong about it. Islam in the first place practiced such. Such was and is the real value of Islam. The earth, the universe is free for everybody. Therefore, based on such spirit, I would say, we Malaysia, if we work on the true course of Islam, we indeed can bring peace and harmony to both the Israel and Palestine. Time has come for Malaysia to take the caliph seat to lead both Israel and Palestine into peace and harmony living. Our deed, is not about mere Palestine and Israel, but for the sake of the whole world. From day one, we as men, Allah had created us to bring peace and harmony on this earth. Thus, I would believe:

(3.1) First thing first. The Al Quran had said, hunger takes one to kufur. I would believe, the term kufur here would mean deviance and not necessarily kafir. Hunger always takes people to do bad deed. Hunger makes one's lost their mind. The Palestine are in bad hunger. Therefore, Malaysia must find ways and means to resolve hunger among the Palestine. Due to the interlocked nature of Palestine, Israel is the main constraint for such an effort. Thus, we have no choice but to compromise to work with the Israel on the matter. Our past approach for not having diplomatic relationship with the Israel may need to be reviewed. On what ground should we not having a diplomatic relationship with the Israel? Have such a strategy work? To me the long term sustainable solution to cure the Palestine sickness is by means of dealing with the Israel. We need the Israel to help the Palestine. Allah had made, sometimes the venom as the cure to its ownself. Muhammad SAW never made the Islamic enemies as enemies to win them over. At times of his early great hardship, Muhammad SAW lives among the Jews.  He even called for friendship with the Byzantium in Jerusalem. Let learn form Allah and His messenger great wisdom. Dare we to take such a stance? Why not? Are we worried of the Arabs backlash? What is there now for an Arabs backlash? They are too busy killing among themselves? Or shadowy we fear the Malays anger? To me, the Malays be they Malaysian, Indonesian, Brunei, Pattani, Sulu or Cham, if we care to sit down really to discuss the matter, with all parties, and made it clear on our farsighted strategy, definitely they will be with us all through. Let us through ASEAN and even OIC, trade-off peace for Israel with resolving hunger for the Palestine. I have a strong believe, by establishing a diplomatic relationship with Israel, half of the problem may have been automatically resolved. The Islamic world must play the central role to give Israel the peace of mind for the sake of the Palestine and the world as a whole.

(30.1b) The Malays leaders must stop playing politic with the Quranic verses, and in this context the one that said "for us not to take Jews, Nasrani and even Majusi to be among our associates" by looking at the verse not from it real contextual fact. Muslims are advised not to do so, for reason of tendencies for deviance from the true path. Therefore if our association is for the great of the societies and bring good into the eyes of Allah, He would have never forbade it. Even Muhammad SAW took a Jewish woman to be his wife. Then what the problem of making Israel our friend, for the purpose to seed peace and harmony worldwide? But the Malays politic had made Israel and the Jews to the very wrong political mileage that had worsen things. The exploitation of Islamic teaching for the political gain by both UMNO and PAS in this country had made Malaysia as an overall to regress while by right we should be far moving ahead. I have a strong belief, both PAS and UMNO had abused Islam for their short term gain yet inflicting a long term lost to the Malays and the Nation.

(30.1c) Israel is in dire need of the Islamic world recognition. Let them have it, with a trade off for us to work together to relieve the miseries of the Palestine. Malaysia should begin to initiate a strong diplomatic ties with the Israel. The whole of the Muslims world should establish a diplomatic relationship with the Israel. Even the Palestine themselves are now looking for Israel as their source of lives, then what the problem of the others not to see thing from the tradition of the 1940s? I can see no problem if we are honest to such a deed.

(30.2) Secondly, on condition that the Malaysia (and other Muslims states)-Israel diplomatic ties is accomplished, we must have our Malaysian voluntary team but preferably an international team and let called it ASEAN Mercy that can work with the Israel to deliver the food, water, medicine, clothing and even homes to the needing Palestine. Let work on this for the first five years period, while other wider initiatives could take place. Accordingly, I would believe, the problem of the agitated young Palestine must also be quickly resolved. These are the groups that easily be swayed to go wild and causing unnecessary trouble to both sides. Education, skill development, employment and recreation needs of these groups must be quickly attended. Israel indeed is a fast developing State and to certain extend the neighboring Muslims states. They need lots of skilled and educated employees. Thus, diplomatic relationship between Malaysia and Muslim ASEAN-OIC with Israel will facilitate for the process for the young Palestine to work in Israel. They should also be facilitated to work internationally. They need to be kept busy to develop their much peaceful future lives, or else stones and bullets will be their favorite choice. We need to look at thing from a long term assimilation and reconciliation process of these two brothers. Indeed in Islam, Sulaiman AS had succeeded in doing such, that made the Kingdom of Solomon a great empire. He was able not only to unite the Jews but to bring the general Canaan to his domain. Allah indeed had shown us the way on how to treat the Jews, just that sentiments most of the times had taken away our rationality.

(30.2b) Malaysian, the ASEAN, the Muslims and even international citizen all over, we are proven to be very generous. At times of hardship, everybody is willing to come in handy. Thus, in the case of the Palestine, we the Malaysian must take the lead role to organize the world generosity to the most fare, non-bias, not partitioning, very transparent basis and systematically together with the Israel. Our determination and honesty to the course definitely will always be closed to Allah blessing. In Shaa Allah.

(30.3) Thirdly, Malaysia must remain Neutral. We must keep to the mission to bring peace and harmony to all. We must never be involved in any bloody conflict either on the Arabs, Israel, Persian or any other parties. We must keep our hands clean of any bloody involvement with any military conflict. We should never be militarily involved in the "war against terror" when such is again a mere dirty local and international political game. We must keep ourselves to the spirit of mesyuawarah. We must build ourselves to be excellent negotiator, bringing conflicting parties to the round table and thus abide to the decision made. In this regard, Malaysian and as well as ASEAN as Non-Alliance Community (NAM) must hold firm to be neutral. Within ASEAN, we must be seen commanding respect. Accordingly, Malaysia must be made very significant within the OIC. Malaysia must act as bridges and highways within ASEAN and OIC. We should take the lead to drive ASEAN and OIC to be united, open but neutral entities.

(30.3b) Being neutral is fundamental in resolving any international conflict. We can be very vocal, but vocal to the tone of neutral. We can't be vocal to the tone of confrontational. Malaysia must be well known and respected to be vocal and aggressively neutral for peace and harmony of all parties. We must have the charisma of being aware about all parties interests and concerns. The trust of everybody must always be on our side.  We had gone through such experience in the early birth of this Nation. At the formation of Malaysia, at time of Indonesia-Malaysia Confrontation, at time of Communist Insurgency, and many others we had shown success in being neutral-professional strategy. Our past leaders had sailed and steered us well in the stormy seas, and we arrived to the destination will least lost of souls.

(30.3c) To build a strong and reputable international images in bridging to resolve complicated conflicts, Malaysia should had made great impact to our domestic and regional similar problems. We are having problem with the Sulu, Pattani, Champa and now Rohingya conflicts. To a certain extend, their problems had been inflicting regional security and economic issues. Within ASEAN, we must had shown high will and integrity in resolving those issues. Unfortunately, again our Malaysian domestic political low level of maturity usually gives lots of setback. We normally have to divert our peace and harmony nurturing policies and strategies to fit into a very short term chauvinistic political games yet a very destructive to humankind civilization. Even to resolve our own economic disparity, which now had gone into real bad political problem, we had been adopting to non Islamic non professional approaches. We resolved to creating hatred and greater antagonism among the related parties. For such reason, our effort to bring peace and harmony has never going beyond our own nut shell, tempurung

(30.4) Fourthly, Malaysia must take on the OIC Chair or Secretariat and lead the OIC and World Bank to fund major and critical infrastructures investment for the good of the Palestine, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Israel. Turkey can also be included for a better feasibility. Let have a smart efficient transportation system to cover the Turkey, Iran, Middle East and thus North Africa and Pan Africa. This definitely would be a global exciting mega investment project. Russia, China and even the West I would believe be eager to participate in the development of the Project. At times of the Islamic Golden Age in the Middle East, there was a train line built to connect Istanbul, Baghdad, Medina and even to the Mediterranean. The idea was firstly mooted by Umar Al Khataab, then followed by Umar Abdul Aziz and later the Ottoman. Even at times of the Babylon and Emperors of China, both the sea and land-based silk road had been established which had brought so much prosperity to all their destinations. We should emulate history to resolve our conflict, which is nothing but about gaining prosperity. To me, Gaza is the potential Palestine port at the Mediterranean. Mediterranean is one of the very active maritime region in the world. It is also a region which is very lucrative in term of tourism development. Giving Palestine greater access to both side of the Nation, to me will settle so much of the Arabs-Israel conflict. Malaysia must have the courage to promote this idea and divert the focus of the Arabs from fighting to development and accordingly to work with the Israel to promote greater international trade within the region.

(30.4b) Alternatively, the Palestine should emulate either Hong Kong of China or Hawaii of the USA in managing the Gaza strip. Gaza could be given full autonomy to grow on its own without too much depending over the PA in the West Bank. Or a much radical approach is to leave Gaza to be managed as another independent State. Let the West Bank with East Jerusalem as the Palestine State and Gaza as the State of Gaza. The population of both can be the Palestine just as Libya, Morocco, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Kuwait or even Yemen all are distinct states but of Arabs nation. Similar with Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia, we are of distinct states but our people are the Malays. To me by making Gaza and the West Bank autonomous or a separate independent state will give both to focus on their own issues and thus not to over burden the limited resources at hand. Malaysia should have the courage to moot and negotiate such an idea with the Palestine Authority (PA).

(30.5) Last but not least, paramountcy basic, as Allah had commanded upon us, we Malaysia must be a truthful caliph. In today system, to be truthful caliph is nothing difficult. Just keep ourselves to the true professional demand of Islam for our humankind needs. Let resolve the issue of Palestine-Israel purely from the need to honor the both guests of Allah. Both need to live as neighbor, and they should be brought to build a greater neighbor among all the surrounding neighbors. To me, Malaysia could lead the peace and harmony building process for both Palestine and Israel (inclusive of the Pattani, Sulu, Cham and Rohingya and among the locals) if and only if, we first and foremost has no other interest but to bring peace, harmony and prosperity to all. Let just be truly the caliph as Allah had commanded upon us.

(30.5b) Can Malaysia talk to Egypt and Saudi, could they donate, wakaf or sell part of their land to enlrage and made Palestine be more significant. Probably Sinai could be made as an Egyptian gesture for an establishment of Gaza State. Similarly, the Saudi could donate, wakaf or sell part of its nearby land to enlarge the West Bank for the establishment of the Palestine State with BaitulMuqadis as the capital. I believe, the Palestine could be made to pay for all these extra land. Wiithin OIC Malaysia can mooted this little crazy thinking of mine.

(31) In conclusion, since Abraham (the great grand father of the Jews and Arabs) to 1948 (in certain part of the world, to this day), the Jews had been displaced either through nature or forces. It must be admitted, at times of their displacement, it was Egypt (Arabs) that had one way or another be their savior land. As such, the Jews must have a sense of gratefulness to the Arabs. In history, it should also be undeniable that despite they had been displaced for many times, Jerusalem is always a place where they are returning home. Allah had consistently kept His promised to them. The Muslim world should admit such and respect Allah's wisdom as such. Analogically, Iblis is Allah's mahluk that He cursed to be the people of the Hell. Despite such, Allah from the day Adam AS was given the breath, He allowed Iblis and Satan then to co-exist with man on this earth till the Day of Judgment. Iblis and man, they served His purpose well, without which, I would believe, both will never be the true them. Based on the displacement and home returning long history of the Jews plus the sustenance of the Iblis and Satan, I strongly believe, despite Allah displeasure of the Jews (and Iblis-Satan) in lots of instances, their existence must never be denied. The Muslims should recognize such, and should be the People of the Book that should truly understand the need and benefit of facilitating the sustenance of the Jews as an Israelite Nation.  SubhanaAllah, His wisdom, most of the times is always being overlook. Let us, for the sake of peace and harmony worldwide, we should initiate for the peace living of our two brothers, the Jews and Palestine.

(32) For the Orthodox Jews, to have Jerusalem is critical for the sustenance of Judaism. In such matter, to me, Allah promised is nothing too literal to the effect. To me, the Al Quran had clearly stated, that the religious practises must never going for the extreme. Religious practises is all about living to the good deed. Our live deed is about balancing today affairs to hereafter lives. The Judaism Rabbi, to me had made Judaism as an extremely religious to the level that religion being seen as drug. As He had promised to Jesus ie Isa AS, He needs the Jews, Christians and Muslims to be there and then for Him to get Jesus on the day of resurrection to tell nothing but the truth. Accordingly, to me, Israel is a fate for the world that Allah had bestowed upon which the modern (and Zionist) Jews will creatively maneuvering to manage this herein wealth and prosperity. The Jews has theological and worldly significance if we care to think and rationally understand Allah greater wisdom.

(33) The Malays, and Malaysia in general should take the lead to tackle the Palestine-Israel conflict both from the true theological and humanity ground.
