Enroll Saudi women in military service: Shoura members
RIYADH—Maj. Gen. Ali AlTamimi said women can participate in a number of military activities such as security operations, inspections, interrogations, accounting and financial management.
A number of Shoura Council members and security specialists have called for enrolling Saudi women in military service, the Saudi Gazette reported.
They said women should get military training to teach them the use of light weapons. Maj. Gen. Ali AlTamimi, deputy chairman of the council’s security committee, said Islam has not prevented women from participating in military affairs, recalling that women used to contribute to Jihad (fight for Allah) to serve Islam.—SG siege by land, sea and air — the world’s largest known open-air prison. It continues to relentlessly colonise the West Bank as the world wrings its hands and does nothing.
And there were many other Israeli wars: in 1973 with Syria and Egypt, in 1978, 1982 and 2006 against Lebanon, and in 2008, 2012 and 2014 against Gaza.
The waves of desperation and radicalisation that washed over large sectors of societies across the Middle East are undoubtedly tied to the negligence and complicity of the UN and so-called international community regarding the injustice lived by the Palestinians. Other wars, on Iraq in 1991 and 2003, the prevailing chaos across the Arab world, the rise of Daesh and other extremist terrorist organisations, the endless violence and destruction are also linked, directly or indirectly, to the original injustice.
Unfortunately, many still believe that time will erase people’s memory. It will not. Israel could not sit on the ruins of the Palestinians and enjoy peace and normalcy.
The Palestinians did not disappear as initially planned. Despite their expulsion, their population today, within historic Palestine, is greater than ever, and equal to or larger than the number of Israeli Jews. And their determination to recover their rights also persists. Palestinians have come too far and lived through too much to abandon their struggle now.
No human being would acquiesce to the humiliating injustice they suffer. No Palestinian would sit idle while watching an invader in his house, on his land and in his village or town.
Relying on the assumption that the passage of time would delete the past and reshape history according to their designs, the Zionists must be stunned that instead, time continues, year after year, to put the picture in sharper focus, exposing the absurdity of attempting to violently eradicate an entire population to make room for alien invaders and expect normal life afterwards. —Courtesy: TJT
