The Fight They Should Be Having

It is ironic that the only time an emergency summit is called by the Islamic world, it’s to do with Israel.

When hundreds of thousands of Syrians are murdered, there is only a muted response at best.

When violence soars in Yemen, only quietness is in the air.

Something like 6700 Rohingya Muslims were killed in Myanmar in the last month, but not a word.

But when Donald Trump recognises a 3000-year-old fact that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, then suddenly the Muslim world explodes in uncontrollable fits of anger and rage!

Jordan’s idiot king, claims ‘palestinian injustice fuels Middle East violence.’

Turkey’s hypocritical leader calls Israel a terrorist state and accuses it of killing children.

The same Turkish leader who happily allowed the Mavi Marmara, a boat filled with many terrorists and no aid, to sail to Israel to cause trouble – which it did,

The evil palestinian dictator – who wrote a doctorate denying the Holocaust and has accused Rabbis of poisoning palestinian wateraccused the Jews of being masters in faking history. The Koran says so, he says. It says the Jews fabricate history.

There are serious problems in the Muslim world, which absolutely require an emergency summit, but a summit of hope, not hate. Instead, we are given a hate fest appropriately held in Turkey, in which the 57-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference, OIC, get together to discuss ways of trying to reverse 4000 years of Jewish history.

The Muslim world is vast and diverse. It has quantities of riches so immense that it can never be measured. It is blessed with limitless natural resources such as minerals and oil, and an abundance of intelligent people who can be trained in any skills required to enrich their societies.

With so much potential among them, and the ability to do so much good in the world, it is a sad indictment in that many of their societies the only thing that can seem to agree on is to demonize a country and a people so small, they would barely register as a pebble upon a mountain top.

Those Muslim leaders, who shamelessly abuse their fellow Muslims, while eating biscuits and sipping tea at a pointless summit, applauding each fiery speech that speaks only of hate, should take a long hard look at themselves.

We will fight for Jerusalem, they say passionately.

Well, how about fighting against poverty?  Or fighting to educate your people? Or fighting for humankind, to improve the world and the hopes and the dreams of all its citizens?

Israel, the country many of them want so desperately to get rid of, fights for all those things – every single day.

And they should too.
