Why bother with concepts like 'international law' which only exist in fanciful theory and not in the reality?When American interests dictated that Afghanistan and Iraq should be invaded there was no recourse to these lofty ideals - they just did what needed to be done, in order to secure their interests. Holding Muslims in Guantanmo Bay and the action in Iraq are widely deemed to be violations of 'international law.' These ideals are non-existent in the reality and are instead tools of the colonialists who wish to restrict other countries actions by holding them to it - but when it comes to themselves, then they are accountable to no one and are not constrained by any law when it comes to securing their own objectives. Only those who are profoundly unable to think and are smitten with the west could fail to see this. Even the rediculous Socialists have seen through this facade now - just a shame certain Muslims haven't.In any case, why should we refer the matter of the occupation of Muslim land to these courts or the western judicial system?Allah (swt) defined for us the solution and response to this problem. Allah (swt) said,"Fight in the way of Allah those that fight you "[TMQ Surah AI Baqarah 2:190]"Fight them wherever you find them, and expel them from wherever they expelled you "[ EMQ Surah A1 Baqarah 2: 191]Muslims have a right to defend the occupation of their land. Jihad is the method prescribed by Allah (swt). May Al-Aqsa and indeed of all Palestine be liberated soon.
