Palestine under the Banner of “For Continuous Support to Palestine


In the introduction to his book Peace and its Discontents, Edward Said wrote “And we must restore Palestine to its place not simply as a small piece of territory between the Mediterranean sea and the Jordan River but as an idea that for years galvanized the Arab world into thinking about and fighting for social justice, democracy, and a different kind of future than the one that has been imposed on by force…”.

For Muslims the world over, Palestine is a strip of territory, an idea and a spiritual presence, the land where the prophet Jesus (May Peace Be Upon Him) once walked. It continues to remain dear in the hearts of Muslims and the quest for justice for Palestinians has never failed to be a force for Muslim solidarity worldwide. However reading into the conflict in mainly religious, Islamic perspective and ignoring its fundamentally political nature – land-stealing, ethnic cleansing, and inhumane treatment of an entire people based on the racist ideology of Zionism to the point of crude anti-Semitism has not helped the Palestinian cause.

The publication of this book by Dr. Hafidzi, which is a collection of thoughtful commentaries and media statements related to recent events in Palestine will hopefully help Muslim readers - presumably the main target audience - to gain a deeper insight into the political nature of the conflict, the failures of past efforts towards peace, and current developments within Palestine while at the same time enhances Muslim empathy towards and solidarity with the Palestinians.

On the Palestine issue, Dr Hafidzi writes as a social activist with Islamic credentials, passionate and committed in his quest of seeking justice in the widest and deepest sense for the Palestine people. But his training as a scientist and academic compels him to be objective and rational in his analyses and opinions. His unabashedly pro Hamas stance may obscure this but is a challenge for readers to seek a much better and authentic picture of this much maligned and misunderstood resistance organization which is now a major player in Palestinian politics, to the chagrin of western governments and neighboring Arab states whose backing for Hamas rival remains unalloyed.

We congratulate Dr. Hafidzi for the publication of this book and hope there will be more similar efforts in the future that will speak as Muslim voices, engaging the wider audience in a common language that is easily understood by all.
