Indian Muslim Leaders: ’Israel’ Should Stop Day-Dreaming Its Overlord Over Middle East

20.6.2013

‘Israel is the only remaining apartheid regime in the world, which is destined to disappear from the map of the world, sooner or later like the apartheid regime in South Africa”, said Indian Muslim leaders on Wednesday in New Delhi.

In a joint press statement, Indian Muslim leaders stated, “We condemn, most forcefully and unreservedly, the “Israeli” President’s suggestion to the Indian government to disregard the Indian Muslim community in developing and strengthening relations with the Zionist state.”

“First of all, this is an unacceptable interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign and free state. Moreover, it is a blatant disregard of the democratic principles which take public opinion into consideration while formulating national and international policies,” said the statement.

It further mentioned that tiny but highly arrogant “Israel” should realize that it is committing a mockery of democratic principles by suggesting policies to a country which is 200 times its population.

Moreover, it asked “Israel” to give Palestinians their inalienable rights, return the occupied lands and stop its criminal siege of Gaza Strip and equally illegal settlements in the West Bank.

“Israel should stop day-dreaming that it can continue to overlord the Middle East thinking that it can forever rely on the blind American support. Middle East’s sand is shifting fast and even “Israel’s” American allies are now saying that a decade from now “Israel” may not exist,” the statement remarked.

The Muslim leaders further advised the “Israeli” President to ask the Jewish settlers in occupied Palestine to return to their original homelands while those remaining in Palestine will have to live as loyal citizens of a free and democratic Palestine.

“We also advise the “Israeli” President to stop thinking about India where a vast majority of people of all communities know the reality of “Israel” and how it was built by violence and deceit on stolen land with blind European and American support,” they stated.

It added that in India “we know that “Israel” is the only remaining apartheid regime in the world, which is destined to disappear from the map of the world sooner or later like the apartheid regime in South Africa.”
