didn't know where to put this so I thought here sounded close enough

Why is it that all the people of the world are labled because of the goverments that govern them.

with the wars going on around the place, it isn't the people, it is the leaders behind it.
Israel is looking like the bad guy in the conflict in Gazza, yet the Israeli people themselves are not the goverment, the Israeli people would love peace, same for Palestine, Hamas is not Palestine, they are just the ruling party.

If we judged each and every person based on the political leaders they have, we are in trouble.
Not all Americans are for Bush or for Obama, yet the American people are being tainted with the same, a war loving nation.
Most Americans just want to watch sport, have fun and live free

Our leader in Australia is an idiot,
I didn't vote for him so why should I be labled an idiot as well?

we are usually given only 2 choices on election day, Bad and worse,
and unfortunately one always gets in to office.
we are puppets of the media and big business.

we are all born the same way, we all live and we all die, wouldn't it be good if we could all live and die as happy people and not as un happy races ruled by angry goverments.

Amen Brother!
We most certainly are not our governments.
We have just been led to believe we should be.

This is a huge problem going around but it's really the media that spreads this kind of behavior. Hamas started the problems (not palestinians) and Israel is being protested against. It's ridiculous. We need to see world leaders for what they are and not label the people that have no control.

Clearly it’s unfair to label people because of their nation. Not much different than labelling people because of their skin colour.
If you’re a citizen of a country chances are you are a subject of its news media and culture. Doesn’t mean you are the product of these things, but a lot of people subjected to them are (and hence they exist the way they exist).
Secondly if you’re a citizen of a country you’re probably either a taxpayer or investor.
This is why in all kinds of warfare population centres are delibretly targeted; not just industry. One exception being where international law can be uphold.

Therefore there are good reasons to make assumptions; providing you comprehend the difference between assumption and fact.
