Gaza's Arab enemies come out of the woodwork

Suddenly, blood no longer holds any weight between brothers and no one affiliates with the common thread of Arabism. Talk of an Arab army's aggression towards Gaza is normalised and portrayed as an acceptable outcome in many Arab media outlets.

In an era of Arab degradation, in which many dictators have tightened their grip, the maximum limits of the tragedy have been reached when it comes to Palestinian officials' silence and inability to condemn the tragedy they are facing. Their inaction can be classified as an act of betrayal and active participation in the Zionist crime against Palestine and its people.

In this critical phase of the Arab Spring, which gives rise to tyrants who sow the seeds of hatred towards Palestine and Palestinian resistance in their attempts to cause incitement, the fruit of their efforts will be ugly. Tyrants will step on the bodies of the pure and destroy any positive signs in the Islamic world.

The Egyptian army is currently waging an unprecedented war with its blockade of the Gaza Strip. The media openly speaks of bringing Hamas to its knees; why? It is the only entity of the Palestinian resistance that functions outside the binds and limitations of the Israeli occupation.

All of this is being met with indifference by a wide range of the Arab public and Gaza's enemies creep out of the woodwork. This group of malicious and corrupt people are the same individuals who invested in the epidemics plaguing the Arab word and benefited from the Arab nation's weakened state and lack of will. They were bound to address some of their impulsive degradation towards Gaza so that they would be able to implement the same vices and grab the reins of authority. Dirt has been cast over the glimmer of hope cowering under the ashes of the revolutions.

The worst thing about all of this is the Palestinian Authority contribution to the aggression against Gaza. It claims that the consequences of such actions are positive because they are carried out by an Arab army, while the people of Gaza suffocate due to shortages of fuel, electricity and medicine. Thousands of travellers are in a log-jam at the Rafah border while the coup's authorities in Egypt and the aggressively uncaring PA in Ramallah do not give a fig about the severe consequences of the siege. more
