Israel’s intention to decapitate the government of Palestine should the United Nations accept the Palestinians as an observer member rendered consequences even before the announcement was made. While the Foreign Affairs Minister of Israel threatened Palestine with attacking his political leaders, terrorist organizations in the region began to launch bombs across the south border between Gaza and Israel.
But the reaction from Israel’s foes did not stop there. Egypt requested immediately that Israel toned down its speech of aggression and decided to pull its ambassador from the Jewish capital. Additionally, the Palestinian government has now asked the United Nations’ Security Council to stop Israel’s attacks on Gaza.
On Wednesday night, U.N. observer Riyad Mansour confirmed that Israel had publicly threatened Palestinian leaders and that the Israeli government was boasting about killing Palestinians after blowing up Hamas mastermind Ahmed Jabari.
Mansour said that “war crimes are being perpetrated by Israel against the Palestinian people.” The U.N. observer than said that “the international community must act to bring an end to Israel’s illegal policies and practices against the Palestinian people”.
From Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood, an ally of the United States in Libya and other countries in the region, said that it “will not allow the Palestinians to be subjected to Israeli aggression, as in the past.” In a statement, the now turned political party said that “swift Arab and international action to stop the massacres committed by Israel must take into account the changes in the Arab region and especially Egypt.”
The Muslim Brotherhood, known historical for its own movement of social and military aggression against anyone who disagreed with its precepts, founded the Freedom and Justice Party in Egypt, and now, it is a strong player in Middle Eastern politics. In mid 2012, the Muslim Brotherhood arrived to power in Egypt after winning the general election, which brought to power party leader Mohamed Morsi, the new president-elect.
The statement issued by the Freedom and Justice Party included a warning emphasing that all options are now on the table to resolve the latest round of Israeli aggression against the people of Gaza, and the consequent response of Hamas, a terrorist organization that is charged with launching attacks from across the border in the south of the Strip.
It seems that Israel’s speech of aggression against Palestine and its elected government has caused a flare of unrest around the Jewish enclave in the region. No Arab nations seems to agree with letting Israel kill Arabs under any circumstance, especially after the country’s leaders have been adamant about their intention to kill Arab leaders. With Israel now announcing that their fight across the Gaza border may turn into a full ground attack against Hamas and the Palestinian people, the conditions are established for this confrontation to developed into a full blown war.
With Mohamed Morsi’s political party announcing that it will not let Israel oppress Palestinians or any other Arab population, it is expected that the 1979 peace treaty signed between Egypt and Israel will come to an end, and with that, war will be given a green light.
