The day of catastrophe

May 15, 2008


             On the 15th of may 1948 the nation of Israel was declared independence after majority of member countries of the United Nations approved the western conspiracy of the homeland for the Jews.It was forced at the expense of the arab Palestine displacement.They, the arabs lost the war to western-Jews army.
              On this day 60 years ago also known as’Day of Nakba’, 750000 Palestinians were officially chase out from their homeland.Nakba day literally translated as ‘day of catastrophe’ also set into motion series of events which caused untold hardship for millions of people until today.The Israelis carried out the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from the land they controlled.It was part of the comprehensive plan,designed by Zionist high command, to expel Palestinian from their homeland after the British mandate expired.
The plan started with the approval of Balfour declaration by British parliament in 1898.The declaration was made known on November 2, 1917, hence it was named’ Balfour Declaration 1917’.
             The Balfour Declaration of 1917 was a classified formal statement of policy by the British government stating that the British government “view with favour” the establishment in Palestine of “a national home for the Jewish people” on the conditions that “nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine” or “the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.” The declaration was made in a letter from Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Lord Rothschild (Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild), a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation, a private Zionist organization. The letter reflected the position of the British Cabinet, as agreed upon in a meeting earlier. It further stated that the declaration is a sign of “sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations.”
             The record of discussions that led up to the final text of the Balfour Declaration clarifies some details of its wording. The phrase “national home” was intentionally used instead of “state”, and the British devoted some effort over the following decades, including Winston Churchill’s 1922 White Paper, to denying that a state was the intention. However, in private, many British officials agreed with the interpretation of the Zionists that a state would be the eventual outcome.
            From 1898 onwards the plan started with the massive buying at any prices of non productives useless land belong to arabs in order to gain lands for later claim.This strategy is also currently used in Malaysia and the British colonialist forced the Malays to accept foreigners as citizen of Independence Malaya as the precondition to granting her one!!!!
            That condition all stated in the Jus solli (rigth of soil) agreement!!. This policy left big scare to Malaya and main reason for racial polarisation.The climaxed was the May 13th incident of 1969.It has hithertho forced the malays to sacrificed most of their ancestors rights and morality in the name of racial harmony. The latter generation were make to suffer resulted in most of them trapped in the lost horizon of unknown culture and identity.
           The same strategy were incurred towards Patani people with the formulation and signing of the Anglo- Bangkok treaty in 1909.The siamese did the same tactics as adviced by British (In Palestine and Malaya) towards the land of Patani !! 90% of the present day siamese domiciled in Patani were immigrants from far north Thailand.They have emigrated into the malay heartland bringing cultures and religion, forcefully grabbed lands in the midst of malay kingdoms.In modern days after being neglected by brother muslims in neighbouring countries the plight of Patani sufferings
and anguish has agravated ever since.

              Thailand, pursuing the policy of “assimilation”, compelled the people of Patani whose language is the Malay language to study the Thai language instead. The people of Patani, feeling that their fundamental rights were being threatened protested and agitations continued, they were determind not to lose their separate identity.
             The shameful and barefaced abuse of the “khak”, or forced labor might have been tolerated without any uprising. But the last straw that broke the back of the long-suffering Patani people was the enforcement of the New Thai Education Act. The Act forced the Patani children to attend, study and practise Buddhist principles and ethics in Thai schools.
             Settlements of Thai families into the purely Malay villages in Patani were encouraged. Such settlers were given land and assistance until they could raise their own crops.
There are measures that are looked upon by the people of Patani as attempts to erase their national identity. It is objectionable to them that the Thai government was forcing them to adopt the Thai culture and language, by insisting on the use of Thai in schools and government departments.
             Names of places and landmarks in Patani were changes from the Malay language to the Thai language, in the attempt to erase all “traces of Malay identity from the map”.
The immigration of Thai people from the north and central Thailand into the south is an effort to “submerge the Malay population and to make south Thailand (Patani) a predominantly Thai area”.
Visits of the Patani people to Malaysia, Indonesia and the certain Muslim countries and vice versa is now discouraged. The common culture with Malaysia has, indirectly been cut off through Thai Radio and Television.Any application or renewal of passport were treated with suspicion.
            Patani earned 35 percent of Thailand´s total foreign exchange.With the pumping of gas and oil of Patani sea the latest contribution is unknown . Comprising of five provinces and divided into 35 districts, the Patani area gets a little over two percent of total foreign exchange earned for development purposes.Patani will never accept Thais
