Muslim regimes suppress their own people and thus ignore the plight of the hapless Palestinians in order to serve the interests of zionism and imperialism. Their specialty is to finance terrorists against governments they do not like.

Even as the zionists continue their barbarous attacks on defenceless Palestinians in Gaza (the death toll has surpassed 1800 since July 8, of whom 80 percent are civilians), the Muslim regimes are in total disarray.
Several regimes, among them Saudi Arabia and Egypt, are conspiring with the US and Israel to disarm Hamas altogether. Self-defence against alien invaders has been turned into a crime.
The illegitimate regimes in Riyadh and Cairo have denounced Hamas’ resistance; both want Hamas to surrender and never think of opposing Zionist crimes. The two regimes, and indeed many others, have encouraged the zionists to continue their criminal attacks on the Palestinians and to 'finish off Hamas'.
The situation elsewhere is little better.
Saudi-financed and armed takfiris are on a rampage in Syria and Iraq. The Mosul Dam was captured by the takfiris today (August 3), according to Iraqi State television. They also seized the Ain Zalah oilfield as well as the towns of Sinjar and Wana near Mosul in Iraqi Kurdistan.
At least 200,000 people have been displaced in Sinjar.
In Aleppo, Syria meanwhile, the terrorists fighting government forces have announced the formation of a new revolutionary council. For the residents of the city, life remains grim. The new council, revolutionary or not, is likely to be no more successful than all previous groups with fancy titles.
The takfiris have also attempted to infiltrate Lebanon although they have remained totally silent about the zionist crimes against the Palestinians in Gaza.
Western ‘liberated’ Libya, is in total chaos. Heavy fighting between rival militias rages for control of Tripoli airport that has remained closed since July 13. Scores of people have been killed. In the other major city, Benghazi, the US-backed renegade general Khalifa Hifter has been driven out of several military bases, including the base for Special Forces.
In Pakistan, the army continues to bomb the tribal region of North Waziristan resulting in a million refugees. There are widespread fears that such attacks on the tribal people, at the behest of the US, will only exacerbate the security problem in Pakistan. Terrorist attacks are likely to escalate.
But it is the situation in Gaza and the Muslim regimes’ pathetic response that is most depressing.
The Saudis have denounced Hamas for resisting Zionist attacks. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia in order to deflect attention from his criminal conduct announced a donation of $26 million to ‘help’ the people of Gaza.
The people of Gaza are unlikely to see any of this; most if not all of it will end up in the pockets of Mahmoud Abbas’ cronies in the Palestinian Authority.
In any case, Saudi ‘royals’ routinely drop more than this amount in tips when they visit the brothels of Europe.
The choice facing the Muslim masses is clear. In addition to confronting the global evils of Zionism and imperialism, they have to deal with the illegitimate regimes in the Muslim world.
This struggle must begin with the liberation of Makkah and Madinah, indeed the entire Arabian Peninsula from the clutches of the debauchers of the House of Saud.
