Pakistan and Palestine Relations

There are bilateral relations between the people of these two countries. An embassy was established by the Palestine Authority in the city of Islamabad which was done on 31st January 2017. Pakistan strongly supports the independence of the Palestinian state. Pakistan does not recognize the Israelian state and for this, the President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf said that Pakistan will only recognize the Israelian state if it withdraws the armed forces from Palestine and establishes an independent state of Palestine in the Greenline so that an international border be formed between the territories of Palestine and Israel. Pakistan supports Palestine as it also participated in the 1970 Civil War that was held in Jordan, in order to suppress the Palestine guerrillas.

Does Pakistan Support Palestine?

Yes, absolutely Pakistan supports Palestinian affairs. Pakistan also takes a stand for it and raised its voice as they demand their rights Pakistan always stands with them. The population of Pakistan recently did protest for the justice of Tehreek-i-Labbaik.

The prime minister of Pakistan Imran Khan at Duniya news in two hours late-night interview gives such a strong response for the Palestinians’ freedom or for their right.

He said that:

“The Quaid-i-Azam had said in 1948 that the country could not recognize Israel unless it granted freedom to Palestinians. If we recognize Israel without giving freedom to Palestinians, we have to also give up Kashmir as well, which we cannot do.”

What has Happened at Al Aqsa Mosque?

Israeli forces raided the mosque while the Muslim worshipers were holding prayers. It is unclear what sparked the violence, but videos of the incident show worshipper throwing chairs shoes, and rocks at the Israeli police. The Israeli police fired rubber bullets and stun grenades at the Palestinian worshipers at the mosque.

According to reports, more than 330 Palestinians and six Israeli policemen were hurt in the clashes. Tension has soared in recent weeks at Jerusalem, which is claimed by both Israel and Palestine.

Ahead of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Israeli forces blocked popular gathering spots of Palestinians at Jerusalem. The restrictions were lifted after two-week-long clashes between Palestine and Israel. The clashes resumed when Israel threatened to evict dozens of Palestinians in east Jerusalem.

Husam zamlot Palestinian ambassador to the UK said that the key to the solution is the systematic Israeli campaign for many, many years of ethnically cleansing Palestine, and replacing them. This orchestrated, the state-sponsored situation has gone on for a long time. Sheik Jarrah, Jerusalem is only an example, the last example of a long, long policy that uses full force.

Why Israel and Palestine War Over Jerusalem?    

The mosque complex in Jerusalem is the rewarded as Islam’s third holiest site but the mosque’s location is also the holiest site in Judaism, known as the temple mount. Neighboring Jordan serves as the custodian of the site, which is operated by an Islamic endowment known as waqf.

The site has been a  flashpoint for Israeli-Palestine violence for decades. It has been the epicenter of the 2000 Palestinian intifada or uprising.

Israel captured, east Jerusalem, the west bank and Gaza in the 1967 middle east war. Israel then annexed East Jerusalem and viewed the entire city as its capital the Palestinians view east Jerusalem, which includes a primary holy site for Jews Christians, and Muslims, as their capital. Some Israeli says the site should be open to all worshipers and men Jews have visited the site to hold prayers.

The Palestinians view the frequent visits and attempted prayers by Jews as a provocation that ignites frequent clashes. Palestine fears that Israel will eventually take over the site or partition it.

However, the Israeli officials say they have no intention of changing the status quo.
