Today I’m gonna discuss something important. We as a Muslim believes that we’re bound to respect all the religions in the earth. Because everybody is praying to same God but in their own way. Now let me take you to the main point. In almost every Islamic country, people hate Jews just because of misconception or very little knowledge about the main thing. Judaism is one of the oldest religion and they are the one who hold the Holy Book Of Allah and that is Torah.
Many Muslim countries around the world do not recognize Israel and thinks it is the land of Palestine that Israel has occupied. The thought and founder of State of Israel is Theodor Herzl. He was a Zionist leader and state of Israel is also a Zionist State. There is a clear difference between Zionism and Judaism. Zionism was the movement started about 100 years ago and it is like nationalism. Meanwhile, Judaism is something else. It is a complete religion. Some of the Rabbis call Israel a Zionist State and they do not support Israel. According to Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, creating a separate state is not allowed in their religion. It means, that true Jews do not support Israel. Because they think that What Israel is doing is nothing to do with Judaism. He further said that Jews had lost the right to claim a separate state 2000 years back. You can see the complete interview of this Rabbi by Clicking Here.
Judaism Basic Belief:
One of the basics of Judaism is that we are a people in exile due to Divine decree. Accordingly, we are opposed to the ideology of Zionism, a recent innovation, which seeks to force the end of exile. Our banishment from the Holy Land will end miraculously at a time when all mankind will unite in the brotherly service of the Creator.
Definition Of Zionism:
Its general definition means the national movement for the return of the Jewish people to their homeland and the resumption of Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel.
Look at the main difference. Religious Jews says that Zionism is completely against the Teaching of Torah and God forbids us to create a state. Some of them call Zionism as the Blasphemy Act. So we should understand the main difference between Judaism and Zionism. Jews are being targeted same like Non-Muslims think about Taliban activities as Islamic activities.
For the Muslim, the land of Palestine is third holiest place. Because it was our first Qibla. The purpose to write this post is just to tell that Judaism should not be linked with Zionism. It is totally a different thing. We as a Muslim should respect Judaism. Muslims and Jews both are linked from Hazrat Ibrahim A.S. If we see this, we’re brothers. We need to think beyond the Race, Religion etc… for the peace in the earth. For this I would like to quote some verses from Holy Quran. It preaches equal love for all, equal respect for all, and equal faith in all.
No Compulsion in Religion: (Source)
“We have truly shown him the way; he may be thankful or unthankful” (76:3).
“Clear proofs have indeed come to you from your Lord: so whoever sees, it is for his own good; and whoever is blind, it is to his own harm” (6:104).
“If you do good, you do good for your own souls. And if you do evil, it is for them” (17:7).
I condemn the State Of Israel but not Jews. Because religious Jews think that What Israel is doing is nothing to do with their religion. It is not Judaism.
Now the question is that why they’re getting strong. Look at the example of Pakistan. China is one of the best friend of Pakistan. There is no doubt. China has invested in Pakistan in almost every sector like Telecom, Engineering, Defence, Services etc… Pakistan can never tolerate anything negative against China. Same is the case is with China. Pakistan is a good friend of China too.
Israel and USA are the best friends. USA has invested billions of dollars in Israel and Israel is also supporting USA in defense sector. In United Nation, (I call it so called) USA has a veto power. This country also has the benefit that their biggest ally, the USA, will veto any serious resolution against them preventing any action from being carried out. We can’t do anything. They use the force of the UN and the security council when they require moral legitimacy to go to war yet they are prepared to ignore or circumvent it when votes don’t go their way. Then I must say that United Nations is the organization which is formed to protect the interests of United States. Israel has broken hundreds of UN Resolutions but nothing goes wrong in their way. I must hopelessly say that I am unable to see the good future of Palestine. They’re trapped by two Good friends despite of having 50+ Islamic countries in the world. Isn’t it hopeless?
This to to remember that the whole article is my point of view towards Judaism. I will again say that I am against state of Israel which is a Zionist state and they occupied that land. And as a Muslim, Islam told us to respect every religion. I respect Judaism as a RELIGION. Because they also pray to that same God which is Allah. Palestinians are killed by Zionist and being expelled from their land and it is human rights violation from Israel.
If you’re interested to read about some more cool thing about Kosher, the dietary law of Jews just for the sake of knowledge, you can read my other post by Clicking Here. :) I don’t know why I feel insecure after writing this post. May be people may take me otherwise like agent. But I know what, why and how I’m writing this. I hope you will understand what I actually wanted to say.
