I could give a political answer to that one but I refrain..I,m sick of politics in this forum by now myself.Instead I,ll give a social one,
As you know,people are scared of the unknown,it,s a simple fact of life..
You were scared on your first day off school.Well I was..No friends,family.All the other kids around you screaming..WHAT? IS THIS
You get scared if you hear that your place of work is making cutbacks,could it be your head on the block?
You get scared when you move house.It has been listed as one of the most stressful times that humans encounter.What if it the move goes wrong..Your
stuff gets broken/lost.Do you have bad neighbours?etc
Also,as you know,there are a considerable amount of Jewish people living in America,a lot of them in powerful positions I will add.ahem..So therefore
you are familiar with them.Judaism becomes familiar to you.Jewish custom becomes familiar.Their beliefs are no longer strange or alien.
Now all it takes is a little apprehension.You see reports of far off countries with strange men in strange clothes.They are in the middle of a strange
ceremony in a strange surroundings.It,s the dreaded A-rab..
Now all it takes is a little bias in the media to prevent you from learning more about this strange group of people to instill fear...
It doesn,t have to be a blatant..in your face bias..Just enough so that you are prevented from learning the culture of this strange new creature..
The only reports you see of these Arabs is ones of violence,disruption...
THE DREADED TERRORIST
Then you become paranoid..
''But I didn,t do anything to them..why would they harm me??''
sure enough up pops a reason..
They are Anti-christian..ANTI-CHRIST you see in your head..
Anti-Semetist..But why?you say..I,ve lived with Jewish people in my community and they seem ok to me.
Very soon you find out that there are MILLIONS of this strange new breed..and you associate millions of them dancing around firing guns in the air and
jumping on burning American flags.
In a nutshell..You have to see the sides of every story to make an INFORMED opinion...PERSONALLY..without bias.without it being twisted by the media
and it,s agenda.
Try taking a trip to Haifa if you are ANTI-JEWISH..you will see a lot of off duty soldiers there..
Bear in mind that these guys are usually between the ages of 18 to 21..(Girls included.. and they are HOT!!! guys:up
They are happy to talk to you and give you a true perspective on their own personal suffering in times of conflict and you will also find..
THEY DO NOT HATE ARABS!!!..Only hate Arab conflict
Take a trip to Lebanon(conditions permitting)If you are ANTI-ARAB.You will meet the widest range of cultures Co-exiting anywhere in the world.
Lebanese are proud of their country and most of all proud of their people.They have suffered more than anyone should due only to a weak government and
powerful oppressive neighbours.You can visit one of the many military funded beach resorts there.
It cost about $5 to enter but they keep the water and beaches clean and serve the largest hotdogs for ridiculously low prices
I know it has been said before in MANY jokes about 95% of Americans don,t even hold a passport.But I beg anyone who is in doubt or scared..Take that
trip.. go learn for yourself.Don,t rely on what someone else is prepared to present to you as truth...FLY ...AND DENY ...IGNORANCE.!!
