Resistance from Forced Migration to Defiant Survival!

In 1978, the people of the region awoke to the reality that they could triumph over their oppressors—those false deities who had manipulated the media to serve their absolute authorities. This realization came when the revolution in Iran triumphed.

In 1979, the Afghan jihad emerged against the communist coup and Russian military intervention, elevating awareness among our people. Arab youth actively participated in the Afghan saga to protect it after all paths to Palestine seemed blocked.

The Afghan jihad served as a profound inspiration, reviving the hopes of Muslim nations to achieve the goals of Islam's great message.

In 1992, specifically on April 6th, the Serbian aggression on Bosnia began. This crisis significantly contributed to the collective awareness within the Muslim Ummah, prompting support, through men and wealth, for the Bosnian resistance led by the exceptional Alija Izetbegović, may Allah have mercy on him (1925–2003). He transformed the equation from “migration in the face of genocide” to “resistance for survival.” The Palestinians seem to have greatly benefited from the Bosnian experience, despite the substantial sacrifices (200,000 Bosnian martyrs).

In 1996, jihad ignited in Chechnya, accumulating experiences within the Muslim Ummah. One notable outcome was the “Arab Spring,” which emerged in Tunisia in December 2010. Despite the stifling of the “Arab Spring” and the return of autocracy and dictatorship, the spirit of revolution and resistance persisted, breaking the barrier of fear.

Today in Palestine, we witness unprecedented historical resilience. After the displacement following the massacres suffered by the Palestinian people, we find a resistance that the enemy has never experienced in its history. It even acknowledges facing an unparalleled catastrophe since the establishment of its crumbling entity, with Allah’s help.

In summary, those who led the resistance in our Ummah against the occupation are leaders known for their Islamic orientations in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Iraq, Syria, and almost every country. As for those appointed by the occupation to represent the wretched countries, they are exposed puppets who worked to entrench indirect subjugation to the occupation in various ways, including empowering its culture.

Today, in Palestine and elsewhere, the resistance is Islamic, not nationalist or communist. Some, shamelessly, speak as if they are part of the resistance, attempting to undermine it and not hiding their hatred for it. The school of the “Muslim Brotherhood,” and proudly, “Hamas” as part of it, will turn back the clock, resuming the Ummah’s cycle of a new civilization, in spite of hypocrites, haters, and disbelievers.
