There are many people in Islamic countries, who accuse the western people for conspiring against Islam and Muslims for the creation of the State of Israel.
While we (the western people of today) tell them that:
- There was no conspiracy involved, but Israel was created merely due to the circumstances of that era.
- The UN was in its initial stages of formation at that time. The colonial rule, and its end created a lot of issues at that time. And no one is 100% perfect. A lot of decisions of that time did not serve 100% justice. But it was not only limited to Islamic countries, but vice-versa was also true.
But naturally, these people refuse to accept it and they keep on putting the blame of conspiracy upon the Western people.
So, let us show them a mirror, and their own double standards.
Israel VS Azerbaijan
On one hand, these people oppose Israel and condemn the West for its creation. But on the other hand, these same people support Azerbaijan in case of Nagorno-Karabakh against Armenia, although it was Armenian land for centuries, and Armenian people were living there all that time.
These same people today condemn Britishers for colonial rule, but they happily forget the colonial rule of the Ottoman Empire and Persian Empire and Russian Empire, which resulted in Nagorno-Karabakh becoming the part of Azerbaijan, despite its population being Armenian for the last thousands of years.
It was Persians who had colonial rule upon the Christian population of Nagorno-Karabakh till the 19th century, although Nagorno-Karabakh of that time was 90.8% Armenian-populated (link).
In the 20th century, Azerbaijani Forces were attacking Karabakh Armenians, while the local population was fighting for their freedom. Then the Ottoman Empire sent its forces to kill the local movement of freedom. But that Ottoman invasion ended as Britishers defeated the Ottoman Empire in the 1st world war.
Then the communist Bolsheviks captured that area, who were as colonial themselves as Britishers were. And it was this colonial Russian Communist Party (Bolshevik), which decided that Karabakh would remain within Azerbaijan, despite the fact that the local population of Nagorno-Karabakh was Armenian and fighting for their freedom from all the foreign colonial rules.
And when UNO was formed, it also accepted the decision of colonial Communist Bolsheviks and declared Armenian Nagorno-Karabakh to be a part of Azerbaijan.
Double Standards (Total Hypocrisy)
- They condemn the colonial rule of Britishers, but you will never hear from them condemning the colonial rules of the Ottoman Empire or other Muslim empires of the past.
- They praise the local freedom movements of Muslim countries against the Bristish Empire, but they are happy for communist Russians to colonize Armenian-Karaback and then declaring it a part of Azerbaijan.
- They oppose the UN decision of accepting the State of Israel and call it the conspiracy of western people against Islam/Muslims, while they happily accept the UN decision of Armenian Nagorno-Karabakh to be a part of Azerbaijan and never call it a conspiracy theory of Communist Russia.
Is Western population a hypocrite for accepting the State of Israel today in the name of UNO?
Nothing is 100% perfect in this world.
When UNO was formed, there were dozens of conflicts due to colonial rules. Unfortunately, it was not possible for the newly formed UN to provide 100% justice in all the conflicts. The UN made right and wrong decisions at that time, and the world accepted them.
For example, even till 1989, the 77% population of Nagorno-Karabakh was Armenian and they wanted to get their freedom from Azerbaijan. Nevertheless, these same people didn’t accept it in the name of this same UNO decision of accepting it as a part of Azerbaijan.
And the rest of the world also accepted the decision of the UN in the case of Nagorno-Karabakh.
But when this same rest of the world also accepted the State of Israel in the name of a UN decision, then these same people didn’t accept it.
So, who is hypocrite and showing double standards here? The rest of the world who accepted Nagorno-Karabakh as part of Azerbaijan, or these people who don’t accept the state of Israel even today?
Israel was on the opposite side of West till 1953:
Israel was on the opposite side of the west in 1953. It had achieved independence 5 years earlier by a campaign of terrorism against the UK, and had gone down the path of left-wing government and kibbutzim, which was a fairly pure version of communism.
The British Foreign Office and the American State Department made absolutely no secret of being on the Arabs' side at that point in history.
In fact, the reason why the Suez Conflict of late 1956 ended up with the USA ordering Britain and France to withdraw was because the Americans could not stomach the idea of key allies being in bed with Israel.
The Suez campaign by Britain, France and Israel in November 1956 was a total military success. But the Americans finished it off because they would not tolerate them getting into bed with Israel, and indeed President Eisenhower sought economic sanctions AGAINST ISRAEL.
So, these people should please save us from their conspiracy stories against Islam/Muslims. It was neither a conspiracy against Islam, nor against Muslims, but it all happened due to the circumstances of that era. Justice was not served in those circumstances to all parties, but it is as it is, and calling it a conspiracy against Islam/Muslims is stupidity, while at the same time not looking at your own stance in case of Nagorno-Karabakh is hypocrisy.
If the Western world really wanted to conspire against Islam/Muslims, then the issue of Israel would have been long solved, and there would have been no Palestinian present anymore. And Israel would have already captured Canal Suez and a large part of Egyptian land too.
All Arab states support Azerbaijan on the issue of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Even the Palestinians themselves support Azerbaijan on the issue of Nagorno-Karabakh:
In April 2018, Riyad al-Maliki visited Azerbaijan and said that the Palestinian state and its people support Azerbaijan's position in the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and its settlement within the international law (link).
If Israel gets more sympathy of Western people today, then again radical Muslims are at fault here. Islamic countries have abysmal record of human rights, abysmal record of treating non-Muslims and their hate against them in name of being Kafirs. Just look how Islamic countries don't even allow non-Muslims to preach their ideologies and they don't let Muslims to abandon their religion of Islam.
After all these injustices against non-Muslim in Islamic countries, how can they demand that the Western people don't sympathize with Israel?
Israel treats its Muslim citizens many times better than Islamic countries. They are allowed to preach Islam, while Islamic countries don't allow non-Muslims to preach their religion. Israel also allows Israeli Arabs to marry the Jewish girls, while Islamic countries don’t allow Muslims girls to ever marry a non-Muslim. There is absolutely no comparison between the two.
