Palestine British policy towards Palestine reveals a persistent pro-Israeli bias, from Lord Balfour to Theresa May. The Palestinians are the victims of the cruel geopolitics of a region in which foreign powers have always played a decisive role.  Britain, the pre-eminent Western power in the region in the first half of the 20th century, was no friend to the Palestinians and it is still no friend today. Leaders of both main parties have tended to side with the Zionists in this bitter, bloody, and apparently intractable century-old conflict.

With the advent in Washington of an Administration with radical new priorities regarding Israel, and a disdain for Palestinian rights, Palestine is facing a daunting reality. In recent years, ascendant political currents in America and Israel had already begun to merge. We have now reached the point where envoys from one country to the other could almost switch places: the Israeli Ambassador in Washington, Ron Dermer, who grew up in Florida, could just as easily be the U.S. Ambassador to Israel, while Donald Trump’s Ambassador-designate to Israel, David Friedman, who has intimate ties to the Israeli settler movement, would make a fine Ambassador in Washington for the pro-settler government of Benjamin Netanyahu.

Barely two months after destroying Gaza and committing genocide on its oppressed and brutalized Palestinians, had Israelis who turned peaceful Middle East into a killing field, have now turned their designs on Masjid Al Aqsa.

Unarmed and helpless Palestinians are bravely facing the barbarity of Israel – an entity of   violent settler Jewish extremists planted by Britain and promoted by United States in violation of all accepted legal and moral principles in the robbed Palestinians lands.

Masjid Al Aqsa, the first qibla of the Muslims, second oldest masjid after Makkah and the third most important holy place in Islam after Makka and Madina is located in the city of Jerusalem known to Muslims worldwide as Al Quds (The Holy) or Baitul Muqaddis (The House of Holiness).

The historical significance of the Masjid Al-Aqsa in Islam lies in the fact that the early Muslims turned towards it in prayer for a period of around seventeen months after the hijra or migration to Medina in 624 AC.
