PALESTINIANS THANK INDONESIA

There is no doubt that Indonesia’s adamant refusal to establish diplomatic relations with apartheid Israel will be a a significant morale booster for the Palestinians who are struggling around the clock to survive a decades-long Israeli onslaught aimed at uprooting them from their ancestral homeland.

Indonesians pray for the Palestinians who were killed in the airstrikes launched by Israel.

Occupied Palestine

 

Palestinians must send a message of thanks and appreciation to the big sister, Indonesia, for her principled refusal to normalize relations with Israel. the shameless apartheid state that occupies our country and torments our people on a daily basis.

Israel has been seeking to woo Indonesia to embark on this dishonorable diplomatic feat for the purpose of further weakening the just Palestinian cause in the conscience and consciousness of Muslims world-wide.

Some utterly undemocratic Arab regimes, notorious for ignoring the feelings of their own masses, hastened to embrace the poisoned Israeli solicitations. They didn’t hesitate to swallow the Israeli bait: hook, line and sinker.

These well-known tyrannical regimes effectively committed moral adultery with their own national honor and dignity by embracing Israel and betraying Palestine.

Furthermore,   some of these entities even sought to outmatch the apartheid state by perfecting their own draconian measures against the Gaza Strip that many Palestinians began to wonder if these Arab regimes were siding with Israel or with Palestine.

But, al Handullila (thanks to God), Indonesia has demonstrated she has guarded her chastity by refusing Israel’s solicitations and venomous courting.

This feat on the largest Muslim country’s part deserves admiration and gratitude.

It shows that Indonesia is still espousing some moral principles in its foreign policy. It also shows that Indonesia is still not willing to trade her genuine concerns for Palestine and al-Masjidul Aqsa for expediency or some quick benefits that come with normalizing relations with Israel.

In fact, the government of Indonesia has  demonstrated its faithfulness to its own predominantly Muslim people who wouldn’t be comfortable with normalizing relations with the very state that practices murder, ethnic cleansing and discrimination in the ugliest form against Palestinians. Needless to say, this virulent modus operandi is pursued on no account other than that the Palestinians are not members of the “The Holy tribe,” clinging to their homeland and refusing to leave.

There is no doubt that Indonesia’s adamant refusal to establish diplomatic relations with apartheid Israel will be a a significant morale booster for the Palestinians who are struggling around the clock to survive a decades-long Israeli onslaught aimed at uprooting them from their ancestral homeland.

This means that the Indonesian decision will definitively serve the cause of Palestinian resistance, resilience and steadfastness, all considered vital prerequisites for Palestinian freedom and liberation.

Finally, the Indonesian step also shows that the vast majority of Muslims around the world still have their hearts where they properly belong, namely on the side of the Palestinian struggle for freedom and justice.

Once again, thanks, Indonesia.

    On the one hand Indonesia helps the Palestinians, on the other, it craps on the Papuans in West Papua.
    No country is perfect, I suppose.

    The Zionist entity doesn’t need an embassy in Jakarta. It has the US, UK, and Canadian embassies to Jakarta to look after its interests involving trade, tourism and Hasbara.

    Last year, a delegation of Indonesian journalists visited the Zionist entity on an invitation from Israel foreign ministry extended through the US or Canadian embassy in Jakarta.

    Benjamin Netanyahu held a meeting with four journalists in his office in Tel Aviv – urging them to make it possible for normalization of ties between the two countries.

    “The time has come for official relations between Indonesia and Israel. We have many opportunities to cooperate in the fields of water and technology. Israel has excellent relations with several countries in Asia, particularly China, Japan, India, and Vietnam,” Netanyahu told them.
