It is because Pakistan does not have compatible cyber security parameters. Which is enhancing more challenges for Pakistan in world? Pakistan facing cyber security dilemma in south Asia.

The past of Palestine before World War-I was not same as now. The Jews started to migrate into the Middle East and Palestine for formation of Jews state through Belfour declaration as the Palestine remained a colony of Britain in 19th century. The Jews started their Zionist movement in the occupied region by threatening innocent people of Palestine. The land of Palestine is very important for all in religious point of view i.e Jews, Muslims and Christians. The land of Israel was recognized by UN in 1948 as an independent and sovereign state. The Israel with the support of western countries remained victorious in the Arab-Israel war. The role of organization like UN and OIC put neutral stance on Palestine issue with series of some failure and successes. Israel increased its build up against Hamas and PLO which were involved in attacks in Tal -Aviv. These terrorist activities of non-state actors involved in the conflict provide a chance to Israel for increasing its crimes in Palestinian territories on vindicating of supporting terrorist groups. In 2020, Israel was recognized as a full member of UN and until now the independence of Palestine has not been decided yet and it might be difficult to resolve it in near future. </em></p> Fahim Ghaffar Khan Copyright (c) 2022 Pakistan Review of Social Sciences (PRSS) https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://journals.pakistanreview.com/index.php/PRSS/article/view/144 Sat, 10 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0000
