but posting this and saying..."LOOK!! Hamas betrayed their own people!!"...thats just ignorant.
I think posting this was just fine, it is good info and it gives another angle on this issue.
As posted earlier, this is not black-and-white, that would make everything so much easier. But this post proves there is a little more 'grey' to it
all than people like to admit.
As for saying Hamas has betrayed their own people, i honestly dunno....
It doesn't seem quite logical to learn kids how to throw stones at tanks ? Randomly shooting rockets when you know for a 100% sure that retalliation
will kill hundreds of innocents ? Can hardly call those 'great decisions of a good leadership' can we ?
Is it a way to seek media, make them look like the David against Goliath, gain support from Islam all over the world, but in the meantime offering
also innocent ?
What troubles me most is, that it is so hard to imagine from a Western point of view. My mind is not used to look or think this way, i see and read
scaring/troubling/uncomprehendable things on these issues.
Sometimes i wonder if they are really brainwashed, or am I just too limited in my way of thinking cuz I'm Western-made and teached ?
Anyway, all war is bad and needs to be stopped right now.
Somebody spoke of parallels with Northern-Ireland and the IRA ?
Besides the useless bloodshed and meaningless killings, i can't find any.
And i do not recall the IRA called upon total annihilation of all English people or England......
Parallels that would be nice to see in the future...
- things speeded up towards solution AFTER the IRA dismantled all weapondepots and halted the use of violence.
- that decision was taken AFTER IRA lost all credibility with the Irish people because of that same use of excessive violence.
- they had a political wing, trying to gain some sort of control and rights for Irish people, and with the lack of violence Europe had no choice than
to put the pressure on the English......
And if I'm well informed, i think ETA is going the same way in Spain.
