People Stranded at the Berm … Others Deeply Immersed in the Illusion of Security!!

Amnesty International called on the Jordanian authorities to facilitate humanitarian aid passage to about 75 thousand people of Syria trapped on its north-eastern borders in Rukban Camp, located on the Syrian-Jordanian border. The organization said in a report on Thursday, 15/09/2016, that the conditions of those stranded in the camp is extremely miserable due to food shortages and the spread of disease resulting in the deaths of a number of them. The organization also released satellite images showing makeshift graveyards which reveal the plight of the stranded refugees. This is in addition to the successive raids by the crusader alliance warplanes on the neighborhood on Wednesday, which claimed the lives of more than 40 martyrs and wounded 57 people, mostly women and children, in addition to the destruction of several residential buildings.
The plight of the people of Syria continues to escalate for the past five and a half years, as the revolution broke out on 18/3/2011, and the conspiracies against it still continue in all ways and means. The martyrs still ascend, and the number of refugees keep growing inside and outside Syria in camps, with all kinds of suffering, in every sense of the word. The refugees to Jordan, were the most in number according to the United Nations, more than 630 thousand registered refugees, while the authorities say their number is about 1.3 million, since the majority of them are not registered with the International Organization for they had entered Jordan before the war.
According to Amnesty International's report, published two days ago, there are 75 thousand people of Syria trapped behind the berm (sandy ridge in a barren area) on the Jordanian border, after the decision to seal the Rukban and Hadalat Border crossings, following the aftermath of a car bomb attack on a Jordanian military post serving refugees in the Rukban Border region on June 21, which killed 7 people and injured 13 others. Among these refugees are children, pregnant women and patients who live in tragic situations under the threat of hunger, thirst and epidemics. A number of them lost their lives due to preventable diseases, simply because the Jordanian authorities did not allow them to enter Jordan, and denied them access to aid, medical treatment and a meaningful humanitarian response. The organization said that only one delivery of food aid had reached the stranded refugees since early August.
It is worth mentioning that the United States will host a Refugee Summit, which is an international summit on refugees and migrants in which Jordan is the co-host along with the United States and five other countries, on the 20th of this month in New York, in which Amnesty International called on the participant world leaders to “move beyond rhetoric and make concrete commitments to welcome their fair share of refugees, relieving the pressure on countries which are hosting large numbers of refugees”. The organization also called on Jordan to grant immediate entry to refugees at the berm.
A summit here and a conference there, are all conspiring against the insurmountable Syrian revolution. Here is another summit while the Syrian wound is still heavily bleeding, and most of the victims are unarmed women and children. So for how long, O Ummah of Islam will you surrender your destinies to your enemies?! Until when you will keep seeking refuge under the shadow of the Kuffar which is nothing but darkness and destruction?
O People of Jordan, honored and courageous:
This is the situation of your people, the sons of Syria, stranded in the desert with no shelter, no food, and no medicine. Is not the believer a brother of another believer, who he protects against loss and defends him behind his back?
O the Ummah of Islam:
Is it not time to stop the bleeding in Syria, Palestine, Iraq, Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Pakistan, Chechnya, Burma, and Central Africa and every place where the life, dignity and honor of the Muslims is being violated?! The bleeding will not truly cease except under a Khilafah Rashidah (Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood, which will spare the pure blood, liberate the land and protect the honors ... So work with the workers to establish it in place to attain the goodness and glory of this world and the Hereafter, Insha’Allah.
﴿أَلَمْ يَأْنِ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَن تَخْشَعَ قُلُوبُهُمْ لِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَمَا نَزَلَ مِنَ الْحَقِّ وَلَا يَكُونُوا كَالَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ مِن قَبْلُ فَطَالَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْأَمَدُ فَقَسَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَكَثِيرٌ مِّنْهُمْ فَاسِقُونَ

“Has the time not come for those who have believed that their hearts should become humbly submissive at the remembrance of Allah and what has come down of the truth? And let them not be like those who were given the Scripture before, and a long period passed over them, so their hearts hardened; and many of them are defiantly disobedient.” [Al-Hadid: 16]
