Babies were Betrayed in Gaza!

There is no greater crime in the capacity of human cruelty than the abuse of children. They are the most vulnerable and dependent in our care. The Creator has given children as a trust to the world, and there can be no justifiable negotiation on their abandonment or neglect of their needs.

Every civilised nation shares this basic understanding, and it would only be the most despicable of ideologies that would compromise this point of view.

Babies and children are apolitical. They do not take sides in the agendas of adults. They have no interest in winning or losing material assists. Ego is undeveloped. Their purity, sincerity and unconditional trust are universal. Every child is born the same, and it is only how they are nurtured socially, that determines who they are as adults.

However, the most evil of crimes has been committed in the hospitals of Gaza.

Al Mashad released footage of the decomposing NICU babies at Al Nasser Hospital who were forcibly abandoned under the orders of the IDF.

The nurses and parents begged to stay to look after the dependent premature infants however, they left after being promised that the Red Cross would collect the babies and secure their safety.

However, this was a lie. The Red Cross were prevented from entering to collect the babies.

Approximately ten days later, during the so-called “ceasefire”, professionals returned and witnessed the sickening catastrophic sight of decomposing tiny bodies. All of the neonates in the unit were dead and remained uncared for and uncollected. They were left long enough to have worms crawling out of their flesh.

What was their crime to deserve this punishment? What kind of mind and system allows this to happen? Where are the Muslim rulers to offer support to the mothers who carry these lives for months secure in their bodies until they were betrayed by the authorities in the Dounia!We know Allah (swt) places a severe condemnation and punishment for this in the ayat of Surah Al Takwir 81; 8-9:

[وَإِذَا الْمَوْءُودَةُ سُئِلَتْ بِأَيِّ ذَنْبٍ قُتِلَتْ * وَإِذَا الصُّحُفُ نُشِرَتْ * وَإِذَا السَّمَاءُ كُشِطَتْ * وَإِذَا الْجَحِيمُ سُعِّرَتْ]

“When the female (infant), buried alive, is questioned -For what crime she was killed; When the scrolls are laid open; When the world on High is unveiled; When the Blazing Fire is kindled to fierce heat.”

Oh Ummah of Mohammad, fear that you will be placed party to those that neglected these lives and may Allah (swt) return the authority of the Khilafah (Caliphate) with a just amir to remove these vile betrayers and oppressors from our lands.
