In the moment of 72 years of independence of the Republic of Indonesia, memory of our nation's history recorded an important event about the historical and humanitarian ties of Indonesia and Palestine. In fact, Palestine is the first entity to encourage and recognize the independence of the Indonesian nation, in addition to Egypt being the first country to recognize it. By de jure, Indonesia which had independence on August 17, 1945 needed the support and recognition from other countries to become a sovereign State. More specifically, the support was initiated and given by Shaykh Muhammad Amin Al-Husaini. He was a scholar and activist of the struggle who was then serving as a Palestinian mufti. In his capacity as a mufti, Shaykh Amin Al-Husaini was pleased to welcome the delegation of the Central Committee of Indonesian Independence. His full support and congratulations were broadcast by the Berlin radio on September 6, 1944, to coincide with Japan's recognition of Indonesia's independence. (Zein Hassan: Diplomacy of the Indonesian Revolution Abroad, 1980, p 40). Endorsement and full support was delivered precisely when the Palestinians…

Waiting for OIC's Real Step

"Are we going to let the incident in Al-Aqsa continue to recur? We let this happen anymore", a loud voice affirmed by Retno L.P. Marsudi, Indonesian Foreign Minister in the Opening of Extraordinary Meetings of the Executive Committee of the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) in Istanbul, August 1, 2017. Retno attended the meeting as a form of Indonesian support over the conflict in Palestine and al-Aqsa mosque. Dr. Yousef A. Al-Othaimeen, Secretary-general OIC expressed his appreciation to the Indonesians for their serious commitment to this issue. It was specifically addressed in the private talks at the opening of the Istanbul meeting. OIC has 57 country members, it is the second largest intergovernmental organization after the United Nations (UN). The establishment of the OIC was related with the incident that occurred against Al-Aqsa Mosque, ie the arson attack against al-Aqsa by Denis Michael Rohan, a Zionist Jewish from Australia on August 21, 1969. A month later, precisely on September 25, 1969 OIC was established at a conference of Islamic countries in Rabad, Morocco. Make Jeddah as a secretariat office, the…

Meaning of Al-Aqsa Victory

After 12 days of confronting various Israeli threats and desecration at Al-Aqsa Mosque, the actions and determination of Palestinians especially Jerusalemites made Zionist Israel surrender. Without the real support from most Arab countries that embrace normalization with Israel, the Palestinians able to make Zionist Israel withdraw their troops. Al-Aqsa re-opened, metal detector revoked, and Palestinian Muslim worshippers in droves enter Al-Aqsa Mosque when the victory comes. Zionist Israel seeks to normalization what they have been doing with Arab countries and instability in the region, able to smooth to control Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa Mosque. So that the Zionist Israel is only dealing with the Palestinian people who have very limited material resources without the support of the Arab Countries. As among the efforts of the location of the fight; only with the Palestinian people, and distanced the interference of other States to face the Israeli occupation. This 'conditioning' makes the Zionist Israel more confident to conquer Al-Aqsa Mosque. But later, after at least ten days in the besieged Al-Aqsa Mosque, Israel was rethinking to continue their desecration, as it is pointed…

Desecration of the First Qibla

Started from the second week of July, Al-Aqsa mosque has emptied from Muslim worshippers in twice Friday. The Israeli Zionist soldiers installed electronic gates as an entry requirement for Muslims who want to pray at the Al-Aqsa mosque. This action is not only a form of humiliation, but also the greatest tyranny by blocking worshipers inside the mosque. As Allah mentioned in the Qur'an, in the Surah of Al-Baqarah verse 114 which means: "And who are more unjust than those who prevent the name of Allah from being mentioned in His mosques and strive toward their destruction. It is not for them to enter them except in fear. For them in this world is disgrace, and they will have in the Hereafter a great punishment." At the same time, the illegal Jewish settlers were given the freedom to desecrate Al-Aqsa. They have escorted by Israeli officers to perform Jewish rituals inside the mosque. Zionists really take advantage of this enmity moment to dominate the first Qibla of Muslims, and take any action in it as they please. Al-Aqsa's worshippers were…

Heroic response to the blasphemy of Al-Aqsa

On Friday morning, (7/13), three Palestinian youths and two Israeli police officers were killed in an armed clash in the Al-Aqsa Compound, precisely near Bab al-Asbat Gate (The Gate of the Tribes), in occupied East Jerusalem. The clashes began when the three young men opened fire on Israeli officers near the Tribes Gate, and fled towards the courtyards of Al-Aqsa Mosque, where they exchanged fire with soldiers. Following the fatal incidents, the soldiers completely sealed Al-Aqsa Mosque, and canceled Friday prayers, before preventing all Muslim worshipers from entering or leaving the mosque courtyards. The operation carried by the three young men made Israel increased their escalation against Al-Aqsa. Israel took advantage with this incident, meanwhile Arab and Islamic countries are too busy with their internal crisis, not to mention the political constellation of Qatar as a major State to support Palestine in last time had a shake because of the embargo of some Gulf States and Egypt. Israel's threat and blasphemy against Al-Aqsa Mosque has been run since June 6, 1967, just a day after Israeli occupation took over East…
Every year on May 15, the Palestinians always reminded of their old wounds that are still gaping until today. Precisely 69 years ago, on May 15, 1948, more than 750,000 residents of a state, must expelled from their own homeland. They no longer hold the status of Palestinian citizens but they referred to as Palestinian refugees, and that status still stays to this day. Nakba reminded us of the pain experienced by the Palestinian people at the time, they remained silent to see the Zionists demolished their homes, their property deprived, the garden and their fields were destroyed. Even their brothers became the victims of the Israeli occupation. They forced to flee from the land of their ancestral heritage. Seen from the historical side, the Nakba has brought three big events, firstly, the removal of Palestine word geographically and politically; secondly, the establishment of the state of Israel; and third, began the outbreak of the first Arab-Israeli war The ‘peak’ of the Palestinian tragedy itself could be said started from the Nakba. Because the Israeli Zionist forces at the year…

Resistance Behind Bars

Maybe for the public does not cross their minds, what else is the real counter-action that can be done directly by someone who is in jail. Perhaps it is because the bars are understood as symbols of barriers, including the struggle for rights and righteousness. Then came the perception: helplessness has already hit the prisoners in prison. However, the above perceptions are not generally accepted, especially for Palestinian prisoners. Amid difficulties, they still have a way to fight, despite the physical and psychic attacks of the Israeli armies that currently cause 210 prisoners to be killed and 1,200 people sick. In fact, amid the paralysis of many international organizations to stop Israeli atrocities, the prisoners stand tall against the collective injustice. They face all of that, by doing massive hunger strike. The hunger strike action is effectively inflaming solidarity and popular resistance, now almost three weeks apart, starting on April 17 coinciding with the Palestinian prisoner’s day. Spirit of resistance from hunger strike inflames the solidarity of Palestinians. Palestinians act. Day of rage action was held in across of the…

The Forgotten Prisoners

The struggle of the Palestinian people includes various lines of life, ranging from diplomacy on the political path to physical resistance that sacrifices body and soul. Most of them chose this last path to gain the real independence. They were arrested, imprisoned, tortured because of the struggle that had been done. aljazeera.net reported at least 1,000,000 times the arrests campaign conducted by Israel, since 1967. Palestinian Prisoners' Affairs Commission prisoners released, until 2017 there are 7,000 Palestinians held in 23 Israeli prisons. This number is stunning, because there is no more attention about it in international community. Palestinians view this as a big problem. Their family members arrested one by one, even including children and women. The source of the Palestinian site, alresalah.ps reported there are currently 58 women and 32 minors under arrest. As for male prisoners 4,430 people. 500 of them sentenced to life imprisonment and 600 others became administrative prisoners. The fate of administrative detentionsare even more pathetic. They arrested and detained by the state without trial. Administrative detention (AD) is a procedure that allows Israeli occupation…

Apartheid Wall Isolates The West Bank

The Israeli occupation was never satisfied with the territory they occupied in 1948. Because until now, the expansion of their colonies continued. In fact, such actions proved to violate international agreements that theyagreed. But that's the character of Israel, they always violate all the agreements, it is proof that they are entities that do not obey the rules. Not only that, the Israeli occupation seemed to have confidence, no party could stop anything they wanted. Even international organizations such as the United Nations unable to stand firm against Israel, they only condemn what Israel did. We couldsee from every Israeli military aggression against the Gaza Strip, the UN could notstop the attack, nor sentpeace troops to Gazato end the war, something that seems impossible. The construction of racist wall or the apartheid wall in the West Bank is one example of how racist Israeli occupiers, theyare also ignoring international lawsthrough UN resolutions no. 242. The apartheidwall is the designation of the wall that separates the West Bank from the occupied territories of Israel. Construction began in 2002 during the Zionist…
