I have taken an initiative on my own to meet leaders of the American Jewish Congress at a personal level. This may explore avenues of cooperation, and a viable strategy to get Pakistan closer to deal in a two-state solution, procuring gamma rays technology, and securing support for Pakistan in the Congress through Jewish lobby, in addition to lobby that supports my workings. Hopefully, this will help Pakistan in emerging stronger than India at the Capitol, "if a success to pursue Jewish leaders" to forge Muslim – Jewish – Christian alliance is accomplished. This will also help a two state solution, which has been damaged through Hezbollah through repeated hostility, which resulted in Israeli actions. Such actions brought hardships on the Palestinians with no progress in resolution to the existing problem.
I have decided to give my try, and keep my audience updated and engaged in the process. Though, it is a complicated area in conflict management to succeed; yet I will use my maximum potential in this area of diplomacy towards resolution of a longstanding conflict with a two state solution, as well as creating a broader lobby for Kashmir to isolate India.
This is beyond the level of official diplomatic channels of Pakistan. It will be at the highest level including members of the U.S. Congress and other officials. Doors of communication are always kept open in a successful diplomacy.
THE AMERICAN JEWISH CONGRESS'S POINT OF VIEW ON A TWO STATE SOLUTION: Two-State Progress To enhance the well-being of the Jewish people and Israel, and to advance human rights and democratic values around the world. Combating anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry; Promoting pluralism and shared democratic values; Supporting Israel's quest for peace and security; Advocating for energy ajc.org
Though, we do not agree to the contents, yet we need a solution to the key problems of the Middle East where the state of Israel is a key stakeholder in the process of securing peace. We do not want to see bloodshed on either side. A two state solution living side by side at peace is the only viable solution to annihilate hostilities in the Middle East.
The Palestinians are stateless for the past 68 years. Why? Who funds hostilities? And Who promoted diversity? 1. The locks of the Synagogues were opened by Caliph Umar RA on the conquest of Jerusalem from the Romans. Can anyone deny that? 2. The Muslim rulers in the 700 years of rule in Eastern Europe had Jewish advisors? Were these rulers, a lesser Muslims? 3. On the expulsion of Muslim rule from Eastern Europe, the Jews were expelled as well, and all of them settled in predominant Muslim lands? Why was that? 4. Was the act of Caliph Umar RA, or the acts of Muslim rulers of Europe were in contravention to the teachings of Quran? 5. Are there 2 separate laws: one that applies in wartime and the other that applies on peacetime according to Holy Scriptures? The answer is yes. A Jewish spouse is approved for Muslim men. Does this reflect social structure of Islam? The overarching question: 6. The problem behind Middle Eastern stalemate? Who is the problem? a. Extremists on both sides of the camp. b. On the Palestinian side, who funds whom? c. All militant activity including missiles fired by Hamas are financed by whom? Name the country? d. FACT: The Palestinian Authority's budget is 50% financed by the U.S., and the rest by the GCC Arabs. e. Who constitutes Palestinian Arabs? 100% Sunni Muslims. f. Why is there no finance to the budget or welfare of Palestinian Arabs by those who finance militancy? This is the underlying phenomenon, which stands as one of the major impediments in the resolution of Palestinian statehood. g. However, extremists from both sides have to control themselves, WHY? h. Neither the Jews, nor the Palestinian Arabs can throw each other to the ocean, and the recent indoctrination is absolutely detrimental to the interests of both.
The leadership of the Muslim world joined by Pakistan & Turkey could bring a viable solution to the Middle Eastern conflict. Additionally, it will obliterate Indian designs; otherwise this will lead to a larger conflict.
Certainly, the dynamics have changed, and have provided room to non-actors to lead the situation in the Islamic world augmenting hate between the Jewish and Muslim communities in the past 68 years. The Jewish extremist groups are equally responsible for the current stalemate.
A leadership from among the Muslim world has to rise to lead the Middle East in collaboration with the world power, the United States to resolve the issue; otherwise the current rhetoric will result in hardships to the Palestinians and Jews equally. There is no ending to these sufferings. It is as simple as that.
A DISCUSSION IS POSTED TO INVESTIGATE THE UNDERLYING FACTS
If someone has a better solution to this, please come out and the Pakistan Policy Institute welcomes an input on those lines. Putting further fuel to an already unending hostility...can you name the sufferer to it? However, PPI is NOT ready to give up leadership of the Middle East
Rebuttal 1.... Israel to vacate all area of Muslim land, which she captured as result of wars 2... Israel to be contained to her original geographical boundaries.... 3.... Palestinians should have their all area back and form the Government of their choice... This is how two states may exist... But if Israel should continue ruling the Muslim areas and two states should exist is total injustice and amounts to crush the Muslims....
My Response These are Muslim demands at the very least, or Arab demand at best. Why would unilateral demand work in a situation where Israel controls the military power of the region? It can only work, if there is a balance of military power, or tilted towards Arabs.
Rebuttal So might is right This clearly means further sufferings of the Palestinians.
My Response We are debating a ground reality like "Soleh Nama e Hodabiya"?
All international powers are puppet in the hands of Israel???
My Response This rhetoric is unhelpful to break the stalemate. International powers constitute domestic interest groups to frame international policies. Where is that interest group leading the domestic policy at a time when most Muslim nations call "Death to America"? Is that helpful?
Rebuttal If every one is selfish then no solution to the problem Why they call this???
My Response In conflict management, no one is an immediate winner. What was the philosophy behind Hodabiya? May I know?
But there is one party, which is born looser.... the MUSLIMS
My Response No way. History is a witness. Muslim won on 3 occasions:
1. Caliph Umar RA promoted diversity by opening the locks of Synagogues, the places of Jewish worship after the conquest of Jerusalem from the Romans. Those were the glorious days of Muslim rule.
2. The Muslim rulers of Eastern Europe promoted diversity by allowing Jewish advisors in their governments. Those were the 700 years of Muslim rule of Eastern Europe.
3. The Muslim conquests favored diversity devoid of forced conversions, or a rule through coercion; such as 900 years of Muslim rule of India.
Rebuttal Tell me what good JEWS did to Muslims???
My Response They acknowledged and supported Muslim rule of Europe, India, Middle East and elsewhere in most parts of the past 1400 years. They engaged with Muslims in those 1400 years. There was no resistance to Muslim rule by the Jewish community. The only situation that brought damage to Muslims when extremism was promoted and diversity rejected through ill-conceived ideas, or clandestine operations conducted within the Muslim community.
“If it had been your Lord’s will, all of the people on Earth would have believed. Would you then compel the people so to have them believe?” (Quran 10:99)
Well, this is a universal phenomenon that extremists constitute all societies, not only the Muslim societies such as Adolf Hitler, and Slobodan Milosevic. No religion condones extremism and bigotry. Stereotype expressions are good for public meetings, but do not constitute academic debate or conflict management.
Who are those fighting in Waziristan? Can we get DNA with circumcision reports on dead bodies? Or in Karachi, and Baluchistan?
No one can sacrifice life through coercion. Its good for public debate or audience at Nishtar Park, but not scientific statistics.
