It is imperative not to be numbed by the death toll numbers reported every day from Gaza.

According to the most recent calculation, 1000 Palestinians have been murdered by the Israeli army, majority of them civilians, who have nowhere to run. Trapped by Egypt from one side and Israeli army from the other, the mostly defenceless Palestinians are being slaughtered in more than two weeks of relentless bombing by what is considered to be the fifth most powerful military on earth, armed to its teeth by the United States and its European allies. 

But what does that absolute number – 1000 – actually mean? How would this number of Palestinians in Gaza compare if proportionately these bombs were to be dropped say on the US, or UK, or China, or India, or Germany?

As a father, nothing is more painful than seeing our Muslim children around the world suffering. We see the Syrians, Palestinians, Iraqi, Afghani – slaughtered and their blood streaming into rivers.

However, as I sat watching, listening and reading the many many condemnations of the Israeli atrocities against our brethren in Palestine, on websites, in the masjid, on YouTube, news agencies around the world – after seeing all the appeals, petitions, marches, protests and pleas for help from many organizations and people, this is the thought that came to mind: Why would Allah (swt) – hurt his own people who worship him?

Then, I thought – Allah loves his people 70 times more than a mother loves her children. Then why is Allah allowing this to happen?? After opening the Quran and reading numerous Ahadith – the answer was clear. When Allahs anger is in full force – when his obedience is lost, when his beloved messenger example is mocked, when his people forget his message and his prophetic way — He (swt) will send reminders.
War, blood, pain, killing and the loss of our innocent children — the only reminder we understand.

With over 50 years of Palestinian conflict – years of debate – our eyes, hearts are sealed with the real problem. Syrian massacre in front of us – a country shredded with no end of war in sight. Iraq millions butchered. Afghanistan shelled for decades…and all the other Muslim nations similar and screaming for help.

The cause? The cause is not the Jews, Zionists, Munafiqs, Freemasons, Bilderbergs – they are not the reason – but only a means; a tool Allah has used to wake up this ummah. But 99% are still asleep.
