Israel-the Next Super Power

Israel-the next super power | PakistanTribe.comIsraeli occupation has decided to demolish Al-Aqsa Mosque and build the so-called Jewish Temple in its place.

On Nov 5, 2014, Israeli forces raided and searched villages and neighborhoods of East Jerusalem, detaining over a dozen youths. On Nov 4, 2014, Israeli Housing Minister Uri Ariel told a massive rally of Israeli settlers, who raided Bethlehem, that the time to build in Jerusalem and the West Bank without restriction has come. Speaking to the Israeli Kol Berama radio station run by the Jewish extremist movement Shas, Ariel said building the Jewish Temple is the paramount demand of the Torah as it is at the forefront of Jewish salvation. He called for a third Temple to be built on the site, which today is home to the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa Mosque and is considered Judaism’s holiest site and Islam’s third holiest. The very words to focus said by him are ‘the time to build…has come’

Israeli settlers and officials keep desecrating Al-Aqsa Mosque almost every day. They believe that Zionism is an occupying power that enabled Zionist Jews to occupy Palestine with the help of world powers, including the UK, UN, USA and other western and Arab regimes. No place in the Holy Land is as fiercely contested as the 37-acre hilltop compound where the Al-Aqsa mosque stands. Last year, Jewish Home MK Zevulun Orlev also called for the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple, saying that removing the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque would mean that the “billion-strong Muslim world would surely

launch a world war.”

Some Muslim scholars, such as Sheikh Prof. Abdul Hadi Palazzi and Imam Dr Muhammad Al-Hussaini believe that the return of the Jews to the Holy Land, and the establishment of Israel, is in accordance with teachings of Islam. Prof. Khaleel Mohammed, Islamic Law scholar of the San Diego State University, noted that Surah 5 verse 21 of the Qur’an, say that Israel belongs to the Jews. He translates it thus: “Moses said: O my people! Enter the Holy Land which God has written for you, and do not turn tail, otherwise you will be losers.” Mohammed here understands “written” to mean this is the final word from God on the subject. In the light of the given verse, it is not to be taken that Jews have the every right to occupy this Holy Land which is the Land of Allah and they are a superior nation who can do anything with the inhabitants of that land.

To Allah belongs the Kingdom of heavens and earth and all that is between them, so this land of Israel belongs to Allah, then how the Jewish literature and thinking defend that it is their right to kill the Palestinians and demolish their holy places for their own salvation which is clearly terrorism. Jews are paving the way and settlements are being taken for the arrival of their Messiah (Dajjal). The Antichrist (Dajjal) will lead the armies against Islam, only to be defeated by Jesus Christ, at the second coming. Traditional Jewish belief holds that the Messiah of Israel is yet to come; who will come from King David’s lineage and he will bring peace into the world While Muslims believe that the figure for which they are waiting is actually the antichrist (Dajjal).Jews are of the point that the Time of their power on the world is very near when they will welcome their messiah who will control all over the world. The Antichrist, in the end, will sit in the Temple, built on the Dome of the Rock site, and proclaim himself god, demanding the whole world worship him. On all the Israeli and other media networks the discussions on The Four Blood Moon Theory are being held. The present situation is showing that Israel will emerge as a superpower that is not answerable to anyone. And surely the greater Israel will come into existence before the arrival of Dajjal and for whom they are paving the way impatiently. And then finally Jesus Christ will come to break the oppressive reign of the end-time superpower.

In the current scenario, the crises in the Middle East show a great change in the region. Israel has seen its strategic position enhanced by the overthrow of Egypt’s populist Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi, a political change that has further isolated the Hamas-led Palestinians in Gaza. Meanwhile, in Lebanon, the Shiite movement of Hezbollah has come under increasing military and political pressure after sending militants into Syria to support the Assad regime. Israel is benefiting from the Sunni-Shiite divisions ripping apart the Islamic world as well as from the Egyptian coup which further weakened Hamas by re-imposing the Gaza blockade. Now, Israel has a freer hand to dictate a political solution to the already-weak Palestinian Authority on the West Bank when peace talks resume. ‘The twin crises in Syria and Egypt have marked the emergence of a new superpower coalition in the Middle East, the odd-couple alliance of Israel and Saudi Arabia, with Jordon serving as an intermediary and the Persian Gulf oil sheikdoms playing a supporting role.” Robert Parry.

Israel would like to see Iran undercut and isolated, with the additional benefit of hurting Hezbollah and further alienating the Palestinians from important sources of support, i.e. Iran and Syria. The emerging Saudi-Israeli alliance also may have serious ramifications for global geopolitics. In 2013 the US has strengthened itself and in turn its global position by starting the process of normalizes relations with Iran. But this strength of US doesn’t seem for a longtime. Only a generation ago the United States was in such sound financial condition that it was the world’s greatest lender. That’s no longer the case. Due to its overspending, it’s now one of the most indebted nations in history. Moreover, Jews control the world’s money and, by extension, it’s political systems. All the banks and finances of the world are controlled by Jews. Israel refuses to cooperate with UN. Israel has long had stormy relations with the UN Human Rights Council.

Jewish author Arthur Herman in an article at Fox News on January 31, 2013 claimed that the Arab Spring has made Israel stronger than before.

“The Arab Spring has spawned a chaos and instability in every country it’s touched, that’s going to grind on for years to come. A new report warns that Egypt is on the verge of collapse; Israel’s old adversary Syria, already is. Both are also very likely headed toward economic ruin–as has already happened to Israel’s other foe, Hamas in Gaza, and could hit Iran next,” he wrote. All these factors contribute to the belief that Israel would be the next super power.
