I have a thought in my head that needs quick understaning, for I fear my logical mind is unable to give the benifit of the doubt to these Gaza
settlers that are being expelled from Gaza and West Bank. Now I don't want anyone to think I'm anti-sematic, which will probably still be claimed,
but anyway here is my issue...
In 1968, in the 6 day Middle East war, Isreal invaded Gaza and west bank from Jordan and Egypt and easily took control of those settlements. My first
question is why? (I know the biblical reasons, that is not an excuse to bring back imperialism) Anyway, so they controlled it for a few decades, now
different societies wants them to give it back, (a large % of Irealies are for the Gaza pullout) so why not be the bigger people and take a step back
for the greater good of humanity. Is the greater good of humanity not in these settlers better interests?
Then I read articles about settlers defying their jewish military brothers, (the same military that gained the land for them) saying that jews don't
expell jews. They have even been qouted as to calling the soldiers "Nazis" and writing their identification numbers on their arms, like that has
some sort of association to this situation. I do understand about the covenant from Abraham about the the holy land etc... but I must qoute the great
American writer, Ralph Waldo Emerson, who said, why do we put so much history between us and out God?
So here is my question... Why do these Jewish settlers stoop so low as to refernce Nazis and consentration camps in their efforts to stay in land
that lawfully didn't belong to them until they invaded and stole it?
