Columnist Zaid al-Shami says in an article that nothing weakens nations as division. He adds that our Arab and Islamic nations are now experiencing a very critical stage in their history. Although we are very many in number out states seem to be feeble and unable to act, receiving successive blows. What happens at he Palestinian arena has become something familiar and part of daily news. It is no longer exciting our enthusiasm or calling us to perform the duty towards our brothers. The worse thing is that there are some calling to deal with this attack as a status quo and a fact there is no way of resisting it. The whole west join forces against the struggle of the Palestinian people and calls for deeming any side defending the homeland as terrorist, whether that resistance was with stones or political or media action. This pressure will continue against our Arab and Islamic regimes until they themselves would undertake fighting the resistants and mujahidin in order that those regimes be acquitted of terror accusation. Recently there was an attempted assassination against sheikh Yassin leader of the Hamas organisation and that means targeting every free man . The writer wonders whether what is happening is not enough to make us wake up or do we need more humiliation?
