If I want to be a bigot, anti-semetic, or just plain hate any person or group of people, that is my right and you have to live with that. We are all
entitled to our opinions. Especially in a place such as ATS, a forum where you are encouraged to speak your view on a subject, even if it may not be
shared by other members.
As for me personally, I think Israel as a whole is completely hypocritical. They spout peace and unity in the middle east while engaging in absurd
amounts of conflict. I am sure diplomacy might work... if your agenda wasn't complete cultural genocide and the abolishing of Palestinian land. So
what if they own some land. I bet if Israel actually helped Gaza with medical aid, food, and the establishing of infrastructure, then they would be
much less inclined to hurl glorified bottle rockets at their oppressors through sheer desperation. Anyone would.
I do not believe Palestine is completely right either though. I think maybe if they stopped the rocket attacks, suicide bombings, and promoted peace
by doing, then maybe Israel would be a bit more inclined to help. They show no reason for Israel to be peaceful, although there are many, many good
people in Palestine that are caught up in a hell on Earth.
Someone has to make the first move, either Palestine promote a peace through halting all attacks, or Israel allowing aid and food into Gaza, as well
as letting them keep what little remaining land they have left - or trade all of the land Palestine occupies scattered about, to Israel in return for
a piece of land more concentrated, which they could start their own small government within.
Both sides would have a decent incentive to live in peace, harmony, and to prosper as seperate entities. This would be the model the rest of the world
could maybe even look up to in the future, the idea of two groups of people rising to peace after years of conflict.
I can only hope for the safety and survival of the innocent people caught up in someone elses war.
