The Israel-Palestine conflict is a deeply entrenched issue that has, over the years, become a topic that elicits strong emotions and heated debates. here i urges for a shift in perspective, calling on people, especially Muslims, to break free from the fear of vocalizing their support for Palestinian resistance groups.
One of the most effective tactics employed by Israel and the West is the branding of Palestinian resistance as terrorism or extremism. This tactic has, over time, cultivated an atmosphere of apprehension, especially among those who have grown up in the West. The fear of being labeled as a supporter of terrorism has stifled voices that should be advocating for Palestinian rights.
Israel’s with the determination to eliminate her enemies, continues air strikes in Gaza and they are selectively taking down their targets, the objective is clear

The conflation of Palestinian resistance with terrorism has not only impacted the pro-Palestinian movement but has also given anti-Palestinians ammunition to use against any pro-Palestinian narrative. This narrative forces the conversation to revolve around the legitimacy of Palestinian actions rather than addressing the core issue of Palestinian suffering and dispossession.
Palestinian resistance is not a static entity; it’s a dynamic movement with a multifaceted history. It encompasses various strategies and actions taken to achieve the ultimate goal of Palestinian liberation. I underscores the importance of supporting Palestinian resistance, not just when Palestinians are on the defensive but also during times when they take bold steps towards freedom.
The ongoing Palestinian resistance, including efforts to regain lands, infiltrate regions outside of Gaza, and push for their rights, is not mere “offense.” It is a significant, unprecedented step towards the long-overdue Palestinian liberation. These bold moves are integral to achieving genuine freedom and must be supported unreservedly.
I emphasizes that neutrality is not an option in the current moment. There is a choice to be made: either you support the cause or you do not. It is a time to stand with Palestinians who are making tremendous sacrifices to free their homeland, Al-Aqsa, and attain justice. The fear of being perceived differently should not deter individuals from voicing their support.
The path to justice and liberation is not an easy one, but it is a path worth taking. Trusting in Allah and standing firmly in support of those fighting for Palestinian freedom is the way forward.
