What happened to those who came before Zionist Despot Netanyahu in their insatiable quest for political survival, while completely disregarding Iman and fair play?!

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

Allah [The Exalted] says:

ٱسْتِكْبَارًا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَمَكْرَ ٱلسَّيِّئِ وَلَا يَحِيقُ ٱلْمَكْرُ ٱلسَّيِّئُ إِلَّا بِأَهْلِهِۦ فَهَلْ يَنظُرُونَ إِلَّا سُنَّتَ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ فَلَن تَجِدَ لِسُنَّتِ ٱللَّهِ تَبْدِيلًا وَلَن تَجِدَ لِسُنَّتِ ٱللَّهِ تَحْوِيلًا
أَوَلَمْ يَسِيرُوا۟ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَيَنظُرُوا۟ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَٰقِبَةُ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ وَكَانُوٓا۟ أَشَدَّ مِنْهُمْ قُوَّةً وَمَا كَانَ ٱللَّهُ لِيُعْجِزَهُۥ مِن شَىْءٍ فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَلَا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ عَلِيمًا قَدِيرًا
وَلَوْ يُؤَاخِذُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلنَّاسَ بِمَا كَسَبُوا۟ مَا تَرَكَ عَلَىٰ ظَهْرِهَا مِن دَآبَّةٍ وَلَٰكِن يُؤَخِّرُهُمْ إِلَىٰٓ أَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى فَإِذَا جَآءَ أَجَلُهُمْ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ بِعِبَادِهِۦ بَصِيرًۢا

(They took to flight because of their) arrogance in the land and their plotting of evil. But the evil plot encompasses only him who makes it. Then, can they expect anything (else), but the Sunnah (way of dealing) of the peoples of old? So no change will you find in Allah’s Sunnah (way of dealing), and no turning off will you find in Allah’s Sunnah (way of dealing). Have they not travelled in the land, and seen what was the end of those before them, and they were superior to them in power? Allah is not such that anything in the heavens or the earth escapes Him. Verily, He is All-Knowing, All-Omnipotent. And if Allah were to punish men for that which they earned, He would not leave a moving (living) creature on the surface of the earth, but He gives them respite to an appointed term, and when their term comes, then verily, Allah is Ever All-Seer of His slaves. [Surah Fatir. Ayaat 43-45]

It is said that Netanyahu is a political survivor!!! We say that he is just like the tyrants of yore, who spent all their time and energy trying to sow mistrust and contempt in the world, along with their cronies and those who made them look good. When he and his cronies say one thing publicly and secretly plan behind closed doors or buy time to protect their future corrupt objectives to consolidate their insatiable lust for power and their desire to take away the rights of the Palestinians, this is not a new phenomenon; rather, it is the same tactic used by the disbelieving tyrants of the past. When the disbelieving tyrant Fir’awn and his followers confronted the prophet Musa [peace be upon him], they first gathered in secret to plot before attempting to mislead the public with their false accusations against Musa and Harun [peace be upon them]. Allah states:

فَتَنَٰزَعُوٓا۟ أَمْرَهُم بَيْنَهُمْ وَأَسَرُّوا۟ ٱلنَّجْوَىٰ
قَالُوٓا۟ إِنْ هَٰذَٰنِ لَسَٰحِرَٰنِ يُرِيدَانِ أَن يُخْرِجَاكُم مِّنْ أَرْضِكُم بِسِحْرِهِمَا وَيَذْهَبَا بِطَرِيقَتِكُمُ ٱلْمُثْلَىٰ
فَأَجْمِعُوا۟ كَيْدَكُمْ ثُمَّ ٱئْتُوا۟ صَفًّا وَقَدْ أَفْلَحَ ٱلْيَوْمَ مَنِ ٱسْتَعْلَىٰ

Then they debated with one another what they must do, and they kept their talk secret. They said: “Verily! These are two magicians. Their object is to drive you out from your land with magic and overcome your chiefs and nobles. So devise your plot, and then assemble in line. And whoever overcomes this day will be indeed successful”. [Surah Taha. Ayaat 62-64]

Allah [The Exalted] says:

يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ إِذَا تَنَٰجَيْتُمْ فَلَا تَتَنَٰجَوْا۟ بِٱلْإِثْمِ وَٱلْعُدْوَٰنِ وَمَعْصِيَتِ ٱلرَّسُولِ وَتَنَٰجَوْا۟ بِٱلْبِرِّ وَٱلتَّقْوَىٰ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ ٱلَّذِىٓ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ
إِنَّمَا ٱلنَّجْوَىٰ مِنَ ٱلشَّيْطَٰنِ لِيَحْزُنَ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَلَيْسَ بِضَآرِّهِمْ شَيْـًٔا إِلَّا بِإِذْنِ ٱللَّهِ وَعَلَى ٱللَّهِ فَلْيَتَوَكَّلِ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ

O you who believe! When you hold secret counsel, do it not for sin and wrong-doing, and disobedience towards the Messenger (Muhammad) but do it for Al-Birr (righteousness) and Taqwa (virtues and piety), and fear Allah unto Whom you shall be gathered. Secret counsels (conspiracies) are only from Shaitan (Satan), so that he may cause grief to the believers. But he cannot harm them in the least, except as Allah permits, and in Allah let the believers put their trust. [Surah Al-Mujadilah. Ayaat 9-10]

Netanyahu’s genuine motives frequently unveil themselves in clandestine recordings, wherein he openly discusses his strategic stance against the Palestinians, a narrative that remains concealed until he garners support from his trusted confidants or until someone deceitfully downplays his words on his behalf. As for the heinous atrocities they brazenly perpetrate against the Palestinians that are under constant scrutiny, they persistently opt to refute, shamelessly deceive, or offer hollow pledges of launching an inquiry, asserting “The actions of a few soldiers or civilians do not align with the principles of the IDF or our nation,” all the while Netanyahu perpetuates the oppression of the Palestinians, or they deny all valid claims against them, call it an unfair comparison between themselves and others, and take clear positions against the fair play  ordained by Allah. The conduct of the despots from ancient times exemplified this refusal to accept responsibility for themselves and their cohorts, instead imposing arbitrary rules of conduct on others. Their accountability is dictated by their whims and desires, despite the world observing the glaring hypocrisy and double standards in their words and deeds. This hypocrisy is a constant feature of their international agenda, branding anyone who challenges it as uncouth, anti-Semitic, opposed to self-preservation, or deserving of a full-fledged psychological and cultural battle.

It is quite evident that any attempt to challenge their unethical ways is immediately branded as “the new antisemitism”, followed by subtle insinuations of harm toward those who dare to stand against them. They go as far as issuing a warning, “You ought to be concerned about your reputation as by going against us, you are transforming your establishment into an outcast institution, and you are only fuelling the flames of antisemitism that are rapidly engulfing the globe”. This tactic serves no purpose other than to evade responsibility. They employ a worn-out repertoire of propaganda, but in doing so, they inadvertently harm themselves, as anyone who has witnessed their transgressions recognises their profound delusion. To them, accountability implies that they have become a target, along with their associates, and serves as a warning to those who target them. Truly, this is a language reminiscent of the Mafia, not of individuals who uphold principles of fair play and virtuous morals as ordained by the Creator. Justice is exclusively reserved for those they have branded as criminals and misguided, despite the undeniable evidence of Netanyahu’s aggressive and intimidating behaviour, along with that of many of his supporters. Their actions blatantly prioritise their own desires and interests, disregarding any fair and equitable interactions as commanded by the Creator. Justice is selectively perceived and cherished by them solely when it serves their own agenda, and if their bullying tactics prove ineffective against their adversaries, they resort to public displays in an attempt to manipulate or pressure other influential political figures.

The elaborate mechanisms they have established and financed under the guise of promoting justice and accountability on a worldwide scale are selectively enforced, protecting their own interests above all else and disregarding the welfare of others. The unfolding drama is evident to all, casting a shadow over their purported international justice system, which they exploit to target others relentlessly. Netanyahu and his cohorts stand out as key figures in this relentless campaign. Those who possess political power and attempt to challenge this deep-rooted corruption can anticipate a rapid onslaught encompassing psychological, political, and material warfare against both themselves and their supporters. Moreover, they are likely to be branded as authoritarian, particularly if they advocate for justice for the Palestinians and an end to Netanyahu’s genocidal campaign. Instead of the Zionists, it is those who rightfully hold them accountable that bear the brunt of the barrage of anger, dissatisfaction, threats, and intimidation. The extensive discussion on the equitable implementation of justice has the potential to span numerous pages when thoroughly examined in light of the actions of Netanyahu and his cohorts, who provide unwavering military and political backing to sustain their oppressive treatment of the Palestinian people. However, the essence of this matter can be succinctly encapsulated by the profound words of Shaikh Salih Aala Ash-Shaikh [may Allah preserve him], as he eloquently elucidated the concocted laws devised by the global powers after the second world war. He said: “When a human being wishes to grant another person rights, he will not be free of desires, because the person who codifies laws, whatever they may be, will include their desires in them”. “Every ruling that contradicts the divine Islamic law must have been dominated by desires, and hence it is not correct. There is no doubt that desires hinder people from fulfilling rights in the way they should be fulfilled. As a result, since those principles (concerning equality and human rights) were founded on the opinions of individuals, so human desires, as well as the interests of the major powers and their desire to control weaker nations or countries with a high level of welfare, did interfere”. [1]

This is why we are witnessing something intriguing in our era with this notion of human rights, international law, genocide, ethnic cleansing, and other terms which some people exploit when it suits them, but turn a blind eye when it does not favour them. For example, if a weaker nation supported by certain major powers is attacked by another stronger nation, some ideologues emphasise the necessity of sovereignty and accuse their opponent of genocide, yet this is never important for them on behalf of Palestine! As a result, international law and human rights are employed unequally depending on who is affected – as a means of cheating against some and benefiting others. This intricate web of power is the very foundation upon which Netanyahu and his cohorts thrive. They are not mere political survivors, but rather, they embody the essence of oppression, willing to go to any lengths to subjugate others, all while disregarding the principles of fairness bestowed upon us by Allah. They emulate the tyrants of yore who employed cunning strategies, such as the incessant use of captivating slogans, placating their criminal allies, and skilfully evading accountability for the havoc they wreaked. They masterfully manipulated time, garnering support and captivating their nationalist base with a mesmerising political narrative. In their quest for dominance, they cunningly orchestrated conflicts and rivalries among their adversaries, sowing the seeds of violence and unrest. Throughout the annals of history, those accountable for such reprehensible conduct have consistently prioritised their vain desires and lusts. They deftly navigate the treacherous waters between their loyal adherents and formidable adversaries, adroitly evading the weight of their obligations. Such is the modus operandi of Netanyahu, devoid of any intellectual prowess or extraordinary brilliance. Instead, he simply treads the path of the accursed, insatiably hungry for power and control. Allah [The Exalted] says:

إِنَّ فِرۡعَوۡنَ عَلَا فِى ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَجَعَلَ أَهۡلَهَا شِيَعً۬ا يَسۡتَضۡعِفُ طَآٮِٕفَةً۬ مِّنۡہُمۡ يُذَبِّحُ أَبۡنَآءَهُمۡ وَيَسۡتَحۡىِۦ نِسَآءَهُمۡ‌ۚ إِنَّهُ ۥ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُفۡسِدِينَ

Verily, Fir’aun (Pharaoh) exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group (i.e. Children of Israel) among them, killing their sons, and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the Mufsidoon]. [Surah Al-Qasas. Ayah 4]

[وَجَعَلَ أَهۡلَهَا شِيَعً۬ا – and made its people sects]- Meaning: Various organized and differentiated groups were established, and he effectively employed each group according to his desires within his kingdom. [2] He organised them into factions and various factions to assist him, and they complied with his wishes and followed his orders. [3] He organised them into separate groups, manipulated them according to his wicked desires, and dominated them as he pleased, utilising his strength and authority. [4] He organised them into various factions, leading them to follow his every wicked and corrupt desire, or he manipulated some to influence others to comply with his commands. Alternatively, he formed distinct groups under his control, assigning each group different tasks like construction, farming, excavation, and other laborious duties. Those who refused to work were punished, thus ensuring their obedience. Another method he employed was to create divisions among them, fueling animosity and discord to prevent them from uniting against him. [5]

[ إِنَّهُ ۥ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلۡمُفۡسِدِينَ – Verily, he was of the Mufsidoon]- Meaning: Those individuals whose intention is not to rectify either religious or worldly matters, and this was due to his corrupt behavior on the earth; [6] engaging unlawful killing and displaying defiance towards Allah.[7]

Nevertheless, it is common knowledge of the fate that befell Fir’awn, as no disbelieving despot throughout history has managed to evade the consequences of defying the commands of Allah, no matter the grandeur of his schemes or the might he wielded.

Allah [The Exalted] says:

قَدۡ مَڪَرَ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلِهِمۡ فَأَتَى ٱللَّهُ بُنۡيَـٰنَهُم مِّنَ ٱلۡقَوَاعِدِ فَخَرَّ عَلَيۡہِمُ ٱلسَّقۡفُ مِن فَوۡقِهِمۡ وَأَتَٮٰهُمُ ٱلۡعَذَابُ مِنۡ حَيۡثُ لَا يَشۡعُرُونَ
ثُمَّ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَـٰمَةِ يُخۡزِيهِمۡ وَيَقُولُ أَيۡنَ شُرَڪَآءِىَ ٱلَّذِينَ كُنتُمۡ تُشَـٰٓقُّونَ فِيہِمۡ‌ۚ قَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمَ إِنَّ ٱلۡخِزۡىَ ٱلۡيَوۡمَ وَٱلسُّوٓءَ عَلَى ٱلۡڪَـٰفِرِينَ

Those before them indeed plotted, but Allah struck at the foundation of their building, and then the roof fell down upon them, from above them, and the torment overtook them from directions they did not perceive. Then, on the Day of Resurrection, He will disgrace them and will say: “Where are My (so-called) ‘partners’ concerning whom you used to disagree and dispute (with the believers, by defying and disobeying Allah)?” Those who have been given the knowledge (about the Torment of Allah for the disbelievers) will say: “Verily! Disgrace this Day and misery are upon the disbelievers. [Surah An-Nahl. Ayah 26-27]

The commentators explain that this is in reference to Namrood, who constructed a towering structure in an attempt to ascend to the heavens and challenge its dwellers. Subsequently, Allah dispatched a powerful wind that hurled the summit of the tower into the sea, causing the remainder to crumble. [8]

[قَدۡ مَڪَرَ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبۡلِهِمۡ – Those before them indeed plotted]- Meaning: (The plotters), in opposition to the messengers, utilised various cunning tactics to dismiss the messages they delivered and implemented extensive measures to safeguard their schemes.

[فَأَتَى ٱللَّهُ بُنۡيَـٰنَهُم مِّنَ ٱلۡقَوَاعِدِ – but Allah struck at the foundation of their building]– Meaning, an affair came to them from its basis and foundation [فَخَرَّ عَلَيۡہِمُ ٱلسَّقۡفُ مِن فَوۡقِهِمۡ – and then the roof fell down upon them, from above them]- Meaning, that which they built became a punishment for them.

[وَأَتَٮٰهُمُ ٱلۡعَذَابُ مِنۡ حَيۡثُ لَا يَشۡعُرُونَ – and the torment overtook them from directions they did not perceive]: Meaning, they thought that such a building would bring them benefits and protection, but instead, the punishment they faced came from the very structure they had created. This parable is among the finest examples of how Allah thwarts the schemes of His adversaries. They contemplated and analysed the teachings of the Messengers, only to deny them and fabricate false principles and rules, used them to reject the Messengers’ message, and employed deceitful tactics to cause distress and harm to both the Messengers and their followers. However, their plot backfired and turned into a source of evil against them. Ultimately, their own plan led to their destruction, as Allah says:

وَلَا يَحِيقُ الْمَكْرُ السَّيِّئُ إِلَّا بِأَهْلِهِ

But the evil plot encompasses only him who makes it]. [Surah Faatir. Ayah: 43]

This is with regards to this life, and the consequences in the hereafter will be even more humiliating. Due to this, Allah says: [ثُمَّ يَوۡمَ ٱلۡقِيَـٰمَةِ يُخۡزِيهِمۡ – Then, on the Day of Resurrection, He will disgrace them]. [9]

Verily, in the same manner as the unbelievers of yore persisted in their falsehoods and deceit, unwilling to cease their wrongdoing until they faced the consequences they had earned, similarly, Netanyahu and his cohorts persist in their ruinous ways. Deception and falsehood underpin all their strategies and self-preservation methods, yet they shall never succeed in fooling those who adhere to the divine guidance and the teachings of wise scholars throughout the ages until the end of time. Imam Ibn Al-Qayyim [may Allah have mercy upon him] stated: “The fact that whether a statement is lies and falsehood can sometimes be discerned from the statement itself, its contradictions, perplexity, and the clear indications that reveal its falsehood. Lies can be evident based on their reality, their appearance, and what is being concealed. It is sometimes known based on the circumstances of the utterer of the lie, as someone known for lying, wickedness, and deception will exhibit these traits in their words and actions. He does not utter a statement or engage in an action resembling that of a pious and truthful individual – someone free from all evil, deceit, lies, and wickedness. Instead, the sincere person’s heart, intentions, words, and actions mirror one another, while the liar’s heart, words, actions, and intentions also align”. [10]

Imam ibn Al-Qayyim’s statement, as cited above, accurately reflects the observations made by many regarding Netanyahu’s situation. He is not only known for his deceitfulness at present but also for being one of the shameless habitual liars who falsely claimed, in front of the entire world, that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. This led to the tragic loss of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives.

Nevertheless, he persists and up to now has orchestrated the murder of more than 34,000 Palestinians under the guise of self-defense and retribution. Allah [The Exalted] says:

وَالَّذِينَ كَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِنَا سَنَسْتَدْرِجُهُم مِّنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
وَأُمْلِي لَهُمْ ۚ إِنَّ كَيْدِي مَتِينٌ

Those who reject Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), We shall gradually seize them with punishment in ways they perceive not. And I respite them; certainly, My Plan is strong. [Surah al-A’raf. Ayaat 182-183]

[سَنَسْتَدْرِجُهُم – We shall gradually seize them with punishment] – Meaning, Allah provides them with an abundance of sustenance and respite, leading them to believe that they will not be held accountable for their disobedience or face any consequences. Consequently, they grow in disbelief and wrongdoing, causing harm to themselves unknowingly. This is why Allah has says: [إِنَّ كَيْدِي مَتِينٌ -certainly My Plan is strong] [11]

[ سَنَسْتَدْرِجُهُم مِّنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ – We shall gradually seize them with punishment in ways they perceive not]: Imaam Sufyan Ath-Thawree [may Allah have mercy upon him] stated that this means that whenever they engage in (major) sins, Allah grants them a favour by causing them to overlook seeking forgiveness. [12]

We ask Allah:
رَبَّنَا لَا تَجۡعَلۡنَا فِتۡنَةً۬ لِّلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلظَّـٰلِمِينَ
وَنَجِّنَا بِرَحۡمَتِكَ مِنَ ٱلۡقَوۡمِ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِينَ

Our Lord! Make us not a trial for the folk who are Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers). And save us by Your Mercy from the disbelieving folk.

Finally, let it be known that this response, in no way, condones the crimes committed by Hamas or others against innocent individuals. Please read the following article below:
