As for his trip to the Arabian Gulf, it is intended to counter the Democrats campaign that the US is regarded as a hated entity. Through this visit, Bush intends to demonstrate to the Americans that his country is well accepted and popular contrary to what the Democrats are presenting. In addition, Bush will pay a visit to the American soldiers in these states and thus demonstrate his concern for their well-being. Though no announcement is made, he may include it in his itinerary to visit Iraq and get together with the US soldiers, this is not ruled out.
His visit is to Egypt designed to be the crowning touch; Because Hosni Mobarak will be seen as securing the US interests in the region and will be regarded as Arab approval for them. This will also stone-wall European political influence and curb any resistance to the American influence.
What the Palestinian Authority is projecting the illusion that the Bush visit will usher in plentiful bounties for the Palestinians and they will be given a state with defined borders and sovereignty. It is like a man trying to reach his hand in a deep well, hoping against hope that the water will reach his mouth, but off course it does not! Bush has come to pacify the Jews and offer them security assurances, not to promise a sovereign state to Mahmoud Abbas and his Palestinian Authority. Even the widely publicised issue of vacating the settlements which are any way nomadic mobile structures which are designed for a terrain may well be compromised in exchange of a humiliating back off from the Palestinian Authority to accept a disjointed housing in certain parts selected by the Jews. Even the Jews themselves regard such settlements as illegitimate.
As for his initiative of carving an independent Palestinian state, Bush is well aware that an election year is not the opportune time to take up such projects, in fact he clarified this before embarking on his trip and said: “Even if the Palestinian and Israeli leaders do not reach an agreement before the end of the year, I an hopeful that we can lay the general broad line for a Palestinian state”. Certainly it is known that these broad li9nes mean a continuation of the humiliating negotiations with the Jews resulting in giving concession after concession.
Certainly Bush comes to the Palestine in order to offer security assurances to the Jews and to calm them, and this to the Jews means standing side by side with Bush against the so-called Iranian nuclear weapons. He is visiting the Gulf States to counter the Democrats campaign that America is despised and unpopular in the petrol-rich region. While his visit to Egypt, the largest Arab state in the region, is aimed at demonstrating his strength versus the Democrats.
In fact Bush has embarked upon an election campaign for his Republican Party from our lands: the holy Palestine, the vital and strategic Gulf States and Egypt. Our lands are not only reduced to being merely a foreign policy issue for the imperialist colonialist countries, but have also a matter of their internal politics. Such a humiliation would not have been our fate but for our rulers who have sold out not only their world but also have mortgaged others for their sake. Woe to them and their actions!
Palestine is not a crawling insect that these rulers have made it to be for the sake of extending welcomes to Bush, nor is it some thing to be bargained with the Jews. What will restore the honour and pride of Palestine is the marching soldiers across the borders.
The man who will restore to Palestine its honour will be the sincere ruler who will seek Allah for one of the two good things: either victory or martyrdom.
The man who will restore to Palestine its honour will be the Khaleefah, under whose banner the Muslims fight and behind him they seek protection.
What will restore to Palestine its honour is the rule by what Allah (swt) has revealed, a Khilafah Rashidah on the model of the Prophethood.
This is the only way for salvation of Palestine, the entire Palestine.
