FOR 75 years, the Arabs did not win any war. Throughout history, they turned out to be the worst advocates for the just Palestinian one. They did not take into consideration the words of some historical leaders who realized from the beginning that addressing this issue could neither be through rhetoric nor confrontation, because the balance of power was not in their interest. Therefore, they rejected the partition decision in 1947 and went to war, even though the late King Abdulaziz bin Saud was the first to call for the support of the owners of the land who knew better about their country, and demand that the Arabs not enter the war in 1948.
However, the Arab governments at that time were overwhelmed with zeal, and sought the war, which they lost. As a result, the Palestinian people were dispersed to the four corners of the earth, and in the meantime, merchants of displacement and camps appeared. They sought to fight the war by monetizing slogans from hotels to increase their wealth, while the fighters deserted the trenches. The Arabs did not accept the advice of Habib Bourguiba in 1965 when he said in Jerusalem, “The Arabs rejected the incomplete solution, and refused partition. Later they regretted it and started saying – If only we had accepted that solution, then we would have been in a better condition than what we are in now.
This is what happened to the Arabs under the leadership of Jamal Abdul Nasser, who was the first to benefit from the issue and made it the engine for his coup movement in 1952. It is true that the Arabs fought four wars with Israel, but only one of them was enough to make them realize that the whole world is against them. This is because what was left of the Nazi plan led by Hitler made the Jews of Europe a spoiled child, especially after being in control of money and the media.
On the other hand, the Arabs did not have the ability to cope with this situation due to their lack of solidarity. Some of the so-called “revolutionary” leaderships charged the people against anyone who disagreed with them, accusing them of treason. They thus controlled the people’s instincts until the “October War” came. This war represented a turning point when the late Egyptian President Anwar Sadat realized that the solution was not war. Despite his victory in the war, he returned to the “give and take” policy.
For this reason, Egypt entered into difficult negotiations, and Arabs realized that whatever was achieved by the Camp David negotiations in terms of the return of the Sinai, the Suez Canal, Sharm el-Sheikh and Taba was much more important than the wars in which the Arabs lost lands in Palestine or the countries of confrontation. Therefore, the late Saudi King Fahad’s initiative in 1981 at the Fez Summit turned out to be the cornerstone of resolving the Palestinian issue. It was based on the principle of seeking peace and proving to the whole world that those seeking war are the Israelis, who rejected that initiative.
Likewise, in 2002 at the Beirut Summit, this initiative was included in the plan of King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz. However, similar to the echo of the first, the Arab reaction rejected any solution other than the so-called “armed struggle”, which turned into operations and skirmishes between the Palestinians as well as kidnappings since 1965. It also included the hijacking of planes and murders committed in various countries of the world. This established the so-called “Arab terrorism” at the time.
This brief narration is necessary for the Arabs to realize that what the Emirati, Bahraini and Moroccan normalization agreements have achieved, and the relations between Israel, Qatar and the Sultanate of Oman is the right path that can grant the Palestinians their rights. As for the rhetoric of the resistance countries and the lackeys of Iran, it is nothing more than speck of dust in the eyes, because there are malicious goals behind the Arab bloodshed, which have nothing to do with Palestine.
That is why today when reports are released about negotiations between Riyadh and Tel Aviv for normalization under the auspices of America, we say it is on point, if the information is true. The Gulf states, with Saudi Arabia at the forefront, were the first to support the Palestinians, and to this day they are paying heavy prices for that. Whereas the merchants of the cause spend what they get from aid on gambling tables. This of course indicates that these people do not seek to liberate their land!
