Bonfire of dolls lit by Jews in Israel to protest at slaughter of children in Gaza: Thankyou JAG for keeping the hope of peace alive

I felt some hope today when I read a group of Jewish people in Israel showed solidarity with the children of Gaza by protesting in Israel against the genocide of Palestinians by Netanyahu regime.

Salute to these people who took part in the protests organized by Jews Against Genocide (JAG) movement.

People who have suffered the horror of a genocide should feel the pain especially when their own government is doing the same with Palestinians.

When Hitler was doing his massacre of humanity, there were people like Oskar Schindler in Germany who were keeping the humanity alive.

I am glad to see the other side of Israel which shows there is still a chance of peace.

Fear of the other kind is a useful tool in the hands of people like Hitler, Netanyahu, Pakistan’s very own dictator Yahya and others like them.

Its up to the common people to reject this “creating fear and controlling masses” policy. We need to do it not just for the other side and their rights as humans but also for our rights and freedom too.

Wrong actions and policies, if accepted as norms or principles will eventually hit us too and we will have no moral justification to oppose such actions if we would have supported them in the beginning against other people.

According to a news on Stopwar.org.uk:

JEWISH PROTESTERS set fire to dolls to symbolise the children of Gaza to bring a glimpse of the horror that Gaza faces to Israel’s doorstep.

On 12th July 2014, a group called Jews Against Genocide (JAG) held a memorial service for Palestinian children killed by Israel in its current attack on Gaza. JAG set aflame to a pile of dolls covered in red paint at Yad Vashem, Israel’s holocaust memorial museum.

Jews Against Genocide (JAG) is a movement of Jews from all over the world, including Israelis, who are protesting against Israel’s intent to commit genocide against the non-Jewish indigenous people of Palestine.

YEH KIS JANG MEIN HAI PARAI HUM


یۃ کس جنگ میں ھیں پڑے ھم
شھید بھی اپنے ھلاک بھی اپنے


یۃ کس راہ پۃ ھیں چلے ھم
نشیب بھی اپنے فراز بھی اپنے

اس راہ پۃ روشنی کیوں نھیں ھے
جبکۃ اندھیرے بھی اپنے چراغ بھی اپنے

کیوں انسانیت کی نۃ قدر کریں ھم
کۃ ھم بھی اپنے اور تم بھی اپنے

یۃ اس جنگ کی ھے سوچ پرائ
پر ھاتھ اپنے اور دماغ اپنے

یۃ سب ھے ذاتی مفادات کا کھیل
تعصبات بھی اپے تضادات بھی اپنے

ھے راھبروں کی یۃ خود پرستی
وہ خود بھی اپنے پرستار بھی اپنے

یۃ لمحۃ موت کا آخر گذرے گا کب پھر
جبکۃ وقت بھی اپنا مکاں بھی اپنے

یۃ اس خدا کی زمیں ھے یارو
ھیں جس کے بندے تمام اپنے

ھے وقت اب بھی کۃ خود کو سنبھالیں
ورنۃ ٹوٹ جائنگے تمام سپنے

This Eid happiness,hopelessness and hope

It’s been more than 10 months since the dictator Musharraf destroyed the most important institution of judiciary using the state military power, supported well by the USA and other foreign powers not willing to give the Pakistani nation the right to live freely under the rule of law.

This Eid I know like all other Eids will bring happiness for muslims all over the world since they have gone through a month of blessings and prayers but with all due joys and festivities we must not forget the people who have suffered and still are suffering from the unjust policies of the governments run by dictators,feudals and corrupt mullahs, we must not forget people who have lost their loved ones in this “War Against Humanity”(so called war against terror) from both sides, we must not forget people who lost their right to exist and live freely and thus termed as missing persons(Recent example is Dr Aaafia and her children , one of them is recovered but God knows where are the other two and still Aafia is in US custody facing false charges and inhuman treatment), we must not forget the people who are displaced due to the fight going on in Bajur,Waziristan etc, we must not forget the people of Baluchistan who suffered during the times of the tyrant (Musharraf), we must not forget the poorsof our country who suffered most due to corruption and trickle down economy policy by Musharraf and Shaukat Aziz and still facing the sufferings because the current government is no different they are just he continuation of the previous one interms of policy, we must not forget the cause of justice and independence judiciary in Pakistan and above all we must not forget who we are(Pakistanis) and what it means?

By not forgetting I mean to help the people who suffered and still suffering by any means you can (Actions or Words or Even Prayers).

In all our happiness and festivities we must not forget the lesson which Allama Iqbal taught us:

MEIN TUM KO BATA HOON TAQDEER E UMAM KIA HAI

SHAMSHEER O SANA AWWAL TAOOS O RUBAB AAKHIR

 

May Allah give us light and keep our hopes alive and make us more committed for the great cause and ultimate dream.

Eid Mubarak In Advance.
