A terror minefield.
Zakir Hussain, Makkah
Terrorists from among the Jewish settlers attacked and burned a house in Nablus, in the West Bank, killing an 18-month-old Palestinian baby and wounding the family members. Israel, the occupying power, should be held fully responsible and accountable for the consequences of these mounting and systematic terrorist acts perpetrated by the extremist settlers in the occupied Palestinian territory. Saeb Erekat, the Palestinian official, has rightly called the incident a "brutal assassination," from which Israel cannot be exonerated. It's indeed, as OIC says, a dangerous escalation of "terrorist acts" by extremist settlers. These settlers are protected by an indifferent against the Palestinian people, their land and their holy sites. The whole settlement project in fact is loaded with risks. It is a minefield of deaths and destruction which Israel has created and which has a tacit support of the US and the other so-called world powers that are mightily armed but are short of ideas and a vision, and hence this pathetic situation. Imagine the international community, including the permanent members of the Security Council that continue to affirm their everlasting relationship with Israel. They must hold this little horror responsible for the political, moral and humanitarian disasters in Palestine and take concrete measures to stop these crimes perpetuated by the Israeli Army that has occupied the Palestinian land. They must help Palestine government in following up the dossier of Israeli crimes and infractions at the International Criminal Court.
