The hypocrisy of some Arab Islamic governments in claiming to support the people of Gaza

Strategic Council Online—Interview: An expert on regional issues said that some Arab governments chant slogans and take positions in support of the Palestinian people, but at the same time propose shortcuts to preserve the economy of the Zionist regime as a result of their hypocritical foreign policy.

Hossein Rooyvaran referred in an interview with the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations to the news about the economic, commercial, and transit assistance of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to the Zionist regime and said that the Zionist regime is pursuing psychological warfare and spreading false information about the Gaza war.

He added that “some governments in the region are often aligned or subservient to the orders given to them by the Westerners. Maybe these governments have a safety margin, but they can’t oppose the West, and if they oppose the West, it will be done in a predetermined scenario.

Rooyvaran said that since the beginning of the uprising in Palestine, especially the organized uprising that started in 1965 with the Fatah movement, these governments have had a problem with such movements and defined them as a threat to their security, so they tried to weaken this movement in some way. They even tried to curb it through financial aid. They gave financial aid not to promote and realize justice in this land but to bring them to a kind of compromise, which happened to some extent in recent years.

This regional issues expert stated that some Arab governments of the region doubt the resistance and its capabilities since the beginning of the Al-Aqsa storm operation and stated that they consider the resistance and liberation movements as an adventure and a threat to their national security and go so far as trying to help the Zionist regime behind the scenes.

Referring to the economic situation and the problems of the Zionist regime in the current situation, which is involved in the Gaza war, he said that the Zionist regime did not have a strong economy until 1985 and was mainly dependent on US aid, in such a way that about 30-40% of the official budget of the Zionist regime was financed by the American aid. But since 1985, the severe crisis of the Zionist regime occurred, and the United States took over the management of its economy and tried to transform this economy, which had socialist dimensions, into a free market economy; this coincided with political developments and the transition from the stage of absolute rule of the Labor Party to the Likud Party. Since then, the US has given it 3.8 billion dollars a year, but this amount of aid is not even one percent of the economy of the Zionist regime. Today, the Zionist regime’s GDP is 520 billion dollars, and its per capita income is 38 thousand dollars.

He continued that the start of the Al-Aqsa storm operation had practically stopped the economic cycle in the Zionist regime, meaning that the daily production of goods and services, which earned about 1.4 billion dollars, had been reduced. A lot of damage has been done to this sector. On the other hand, due to the summoning of reserve soldiers and the people being in shelters, many economic opportunities are lost daily. To these, we must add the disruption of the tourism industry and the production of services and goods or the cessation of activities, especially in the technological fields.

He pointed out that after more than 100 days of the war, it can be said that the Zionist regime has suffered economic losses of more than 100 billion dollars. The decrease in the value of the “Shekel” (the money currency) of the Zionist regime, Ansarollah’s confrontation with the Zionist regime, and the threat of movement of sea vessels to and from the Zionist regime have practically created economic problems and inflation of 10-20% has been created, which is significant. In general, the economy of the Zionist regime has been seriously damaged by the Al-Aqsa storm operation, and returning to the previous conditions is costly and time-consuming. If we put the cost of the war next to the economic cost, I think that the losses of the Zionist regime will exceed 120 to 150 billion dollars.

In response to the question as to why the Arab governments, contrary to their official positions and slogans in defense of Palestine and condemnation of the Zionist regime, financially and economically help this regime in some way?, this regional issues expert considered the behavior of some Arab and Islamic governments as a result of their “hypocrisy” and said that slogans and positions raised by these governments in support of the Palestinian people are meant to appease their public opinion.

He continued that, unfortunately, these governments are not sincere in balancing their internal social conditions and dependence on the West.

Raviran stated that the US announced that a large part of the weapons given to the Zionist regime was sent from the American bases in the region; in other words, these weapons went to the Zionist regime from the American bases in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates by sea, air or land. The Zionist regime is killing Palestinians with these American missiles that are transferred from these countries, and these governments have remained silent against these actions.

He pointed out that the primary behavior of these governments is the alliance with the West and the Zionist regime. What is falsely declared in support of Palestine has a domestic audience. They are trying to cover their political behavior, which is full of hypocrisy, with religious and Islamic colors. The UAE is one of the countries that has sent the most humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people. At the same time, it has normalized its relations with the Zionist regime. Its general policy is against Hamas and the Palestinians and has put them on the terrorist list, so if they help the Palestinians, they aim to cover up their complete obedience to the West and its association with the Zionist regime.
