I see so much about this topic on ATS, and for good reason. But I see so much hate directed toward Israel when discussing this topic and can't
believe it is simply bigoted. But it often seems that way. In this world where we are supposed to accept everyone...I have to believe that jewish
people are also accepted. So...why so many anti-Israel threads?
I consider myself a quite intelligent and logical thinker, though not extremely educated on this topic. I personally believe that if there is a good
and a bad side...Israel is the good and Palestine the bad. But I'm open for facts and some opinions. I would REALLY like to avoid heated, hateful
and bigoted responses. This is what I believe I "know" and some of what I "think" about the whole Israel and Palestine situation.
I believe that there is no Palestine and that it is simply a made up area...at least officially.
I believe that Israel hates Palestine because they attack them.
I believe Palestine hates Israel simply because they exist.
I believe that most every time there is a "peace"...Palestine breaks it.
I believe the leaders in Palestine want the fighting to continue to keep them in power.
I believe Israel wouldn't wage war if Palestine would stop attacking.
And finally...based upon all this...I believe Palestine is the aggressor and Israel is simply defending itself. Maybe aggressively...but still
So...am I right? And if not...please provide facts that dispute these beliefs, I'm willing to hear and consider them. I can be convinced one way or
the other as I know I'm not up on the history. But...facts and logic rule...not emotion and spewed BS political double-speak.
