[8] Zionism – [Intoxication with desire for control and an absence of sound rectification]

In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Allah [The Exalted] said:

وَإِذَا قُلۡتُمۡ فَٱعۡدِلُواْ وَلَوۡ ڪَانَ ذَا قُرۡبَىٰ‌ۖ
And when you testify, be just, even if (it concerns) a near relative. [a]

When you testify by way of a statement to judge between people, differentiate between them in a discourse, and speak regarding matters and circumstances, be just in your speech, adhere to truthfulness regarding those you love and those you hate, be fair and do not conceal what needs to be made clear because it is forbidden and tantamount to injustice to divert (from justice and fairness) when speaking against the one you hate. [b]

(Theodor) Herzl had several meetings with both the Christian Zionist Lawrence Oliphant and the Christian Zionist William Hechler in the long series of cooperation between Jewish and Christian Zionism, as Jewish Zionism emerged as an open organization, starting from its first conference in August 1897. Its conference approved the Zionist political program, which does not differ in some of its provisions from the calls of the Christian Zionists, especially regarding the settlement of the Jews in Palestine and the establishment of a state for them therein, recognized by the countries of the world. Thus, Jewish and Christian Zionism have agreed together, until today, to work to transform Muslim Arab Palestine into a Jewish state. [Footnote I]

Furthermore, the colonial politician Joseph Chamberlain 1836-1914, who was a member of Gladstone’s government, then resigned from it and assumed the Colonial Ministry from 1895-1903, held a meeting with the founder of Jewish Zionism, Theodor Herzl, in London, and proposed to him the establishment of a Jewish state in Al-Arish or Uganda. One of the most enthusiastic Europeans in serving global Zionism, seeking after their interests and ambitions was Arthur James Balfour (1848-1930), who held several political positions in Britain. He was Minister of the Exchequer, then Prime Minister from 1902-1905, then Minister of War from 1915-1916, then Minister of Foreign Affairs from 1916-1922, where he issued in this capacity his famous declaration, and after the Balfour declaration on November 2, 1917, when it was stipulated that the British government pledges to establish a nation for the Jews in Palestine.

His niece, the biographer of his life, Blanche Dugadel, says, “(Arthur) Balfour was influenced from an early age by studying the Torah in the church, and the more he became accustomed to it, the more his admiration for Jewish philosophy increased, and he always spoke with interest about it, and I still remember that, in my childhood, I quoted from him the view that Christianity and its civilization owe a lot to Judaism, but they have befouled this religion in the ugliest image”. One of the Zionists spoke about the life of Balfour and described him as saying that his most prominent Biblical beliefs that he inherited in his childhood, and upon which he was raised in one of the Scottish Evangelical churches, are “God’s chosen people, their right to the Promised Land, and the fulfillment of prophecy, by gathering the Jews, in the State of Israel in Palestine”. [Footnote II]

In the year 1906, he [Balfour – the Christian Zionist] met with the Jewish Zionist Chaim Weizmann in a Manchester Hotel and stressed to him the need for Christianity to provide all its capabilities to the Jews, in order to achieve the opportunity to return to their homeland. Peter Grosz -a Christian Zionist, one of the employees of the Planning Committee at the Ministry of State, during the era of US President Jimmy Carter, and Director of Middle East Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, in New York – said about him, “Balfour had a better understanding of Zionist ambitions than Herzl. It is reported that Balfour used to say, “If a homeland must be found for the Jewish people, it is futile to search for any place other than Palestine”. Balfour announced after his departure from Washington, in May 1917, saying, “I am a Zionist”. This was after he finalised the declaration named after him, following his meeting with American President Wilson and his meeting with the Jewish Zionist judge Louis Brandeis. [1]

Footnote I: There is no doubt that Zionists are oppressive thieves, yet many, if not all, Muslim rulers have called for a two-state solution in order to protect Palestinian blood and honour. This matter, however, is not left to activists, militant organisations, Iran’s Raafidah, and their so-called axis of resistance; rather, it is returned to the Salafi Scholars and rulers to determine. Allah [The Exalted] said:

وَإِذَا جَآءَهُمۡ أَمۡرٌ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡأَمۡنِ أَوِ ٱلۡخَوۡفِ أَذَاعُواْ بِهِۦ‌ۖ وَلَوۡ رَدُّوهُ إِلَى ٱلرَّسُولِ وَإِلَىٰٓ أُوْلِى ٱلۡأَمۡرِ مِنۡہُمۡ لَعَلِمَهُ ٱلَّذِينَ يَسۡتَنۢبِطُونَهُ ۥ مِنۡہُمۡ‌ۗ وَلَوۡلَا فَضۡلُ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيۡڪُمۡ وَرَحۡمَتُهُ ۥ لَٱتَّبَعۡتُمُ ٱلشَّيۡطَـٰنَ إِلَّا قَلِيلاً۬

When there comes to them some matter touching (public) safety or fear, they make it known (among the people), if only they had referred it to the Messenger or to those charged with authority among them, the proper investigators would have understood it from them (directly). Had it not been for the Grace and Mercy of Allah upon you, you would have followed Shaitan (Satan), save a few of you. [Surah Al-Nisa. Ayah 83]

The Treachery of the Rāfiḍah Shīʿah Towards Sunni Muslims and Their Aid of Invading Disbelievers Against Them:

War is stratagem! [Do not be deceived by Treacherous Houthies’ (Raafidah) declaration of war against Genocidal Zionists of Palestine]

Footnote II: Maybe Balfour would not have followed this path if he had not been raised on this erroneous narrative- from a young age – from an abrogated and distorted Scripture. This emphasises the importance of sound nurturing even more, particularly in relation to sound creed. Al-Allaamah Abdullaah Bin Muhammad Bin Humayd [may Allah have mercy upon him] said: “We say that children are the most important part of the family, so they must be taught what benefits them and are distanced from evil companions. Teaching them necessitates that which the Book and the Sunnah necessitate in their religious affairs so that they are nurtured upon a sound, beneficial, and good nurturing. We do not say that it is prohibited to study the beneficial worldly sciences because the religion of Islaam does not prohibit it, such as the knowledge of medicine, economics, business, and its likes. However, these affairs come after the rectification of the creed and after being [acquainted with] the knowledge of Tawheed. This is what is specified as an obligation”. “It is obligated to teachers to implant the true creed in the hearts of the young generation. They should clarify -for them- the wisdom, beauty, and underlying reasons behind the rulings of the Islamic law until their hearts grow in Imaan and radiate with its light so that they become upright and benefit their country, governments, Islamic Nation, its people, and the Religion. Therefore, the teacher who teaches your child should be an upright example for his pupils. They take him as an example in fulfilling the commands of Allah and in his manners”. “However, if his teacher is one of the corrupters, the enemies of Allah, His Messenger, the religion of Islaam, and the Muslim lands, (the student) will follow his footsteps because a student treads upon the fundamental principles of the teacher”. [2]

Finally, from a historical perspective, the Children of Israel – behind whom the Zionists hide to pursue their lust for power and dominance – are not the natives of Palestine, rather, they entered the land during the time of Prophet Yu’sha Bin Noon [peace be upon him] whilst there were already tribes inhabiting the land.

From a religious perspective, there is a distorted connection between the Zionists and some Christian factions in their claim that the Children of Israel – behind whom the Zionists hide to pursue their lust for power and dominance- are the rightful owners of Palestine. Read below:
