''Deal of the century is pro-Israel colonial plan''

Since taking office in early 2017, Trump has been formulating the plan, along with senior adviser (and son-in-law) Jared Kushner and special Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt.   According to past statements by U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, the scheme would give Israel parts of the West Bank which are considered “occupied territory” under international law.   “The deal of the century is a pro-Israel colonial plan,” Rabab Abdulhadi of the San Francisco State University told Anadolu Agency on Sunday.   “Peace means respecting the inalienable Palestinian rights and self-determination, allowing the Palestinians to decide their own future, giving refugees the right to return to their lands, eliminating racism and discrimination, and stopping all the abusive practices against the Palestinians.”   “If you [U.S.] don’t provide this, there will never be peace,” Abdulhadi said.   She argued that Trump, Kushner and Greenblatt are all “pro-Israel, pro-racism, and pro-Islamophobia”.   “This is a new attempt to divert, derail and liquidate the Palestinian cause,” Abdullhadi said. “To confront this scheme, the Palestinians have to continue what they are doing; resistance.”   Details of the U.S. plan are expected to be announced after the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, which will start early next month.    Practical steps    Mohanad Mustafa of the Haifa University in Israel said the Arab states have yet to come up with a clear position on the U.S. peace scheme.   “The Palestinians need a clear and obvious Arab stance rejecting this deal,” he said.   He called on the Arab world to take “practice steps to support the Palestinians in face of Trump’s plan”.   “The Palestinians should feel that they have an Arab shield,” he said. “However, it looks like that the Palestinians are going to face this scheme alone.”   The Cairo-based Arab League has rejected Trump’s peace plan, saying peace cannot be achieved without first guaranteeing Palestinians’ legitimate territorial rights.   The expert went on to call on the Palestinians to end their internal divisions and “come up with a unified position against the deal”.   “We, Palestinians living inside Israel, know very well the nature of the Zionist project and we, as well, should embrace a clear political position regarding this deal.”    Palestinian unity   Hani al-Masri, head of the Ramallah-based Masarat research center, believes that the Palestinian unity is the best effective tool to confront Trump’s plan.   “The Palestinian people should take the lead and exert pressure against the Palestinian leadership to impose unity,” he said. “Without such unity, it is difficult to regain our national rights.”   Al-Masri criticized Trump’s approach of dealing with the decades-long Palestinian-Israeli conflict.   “Unlike previous administrations, Trump didn’t come up with a scheme that convinces both conflicting parties,” he said. “Rather, he totally embraced the demands of the Israeli side.”   He said Trump tends to use the fait accompli policy in dealing with disputes.   “Even before he announces his plan, Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Syrian Golan Heights and seeks to terminate the refugees’ right to return.”   Al-Masri also said that the U.S. administration was pressuring Arab states to normalize relations with Israel.   “Israel is not only a threat to the Arab world, it’s also a threat to the whole world,” he opined.

As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
