I think the things that really make me angry about all this are as follows.
1) And foremost amongst them . Both my grandfathers fought oppression in the second world war, against the nazis. Many British men did the same, but
many of them did so because they wanted to protect thier home land,against the fate which had befallen the continent. My grandfathers fought because
they were sickened by what had been done by the nazis. They went to war because what was happening was frankly against every fibre of thier morality,
and because every cell in thier body demanded action to prevent further atrocity. The efforts they went to , to perform thier duties, and thier
experiences ruined both of them mentaly. The carnage, the horror, the sheer inhumanity of what they saw in germany and around the embattled locations
they were deployed to ... well it made a mess of thier heads. My mothers father, and my fathers father came home, made babies, and had begun to bring
up kids, it was my parents who bore the brunt of the damage those men suffered. My mother and father grew up damaged as a result, and then I came
along... Even now the echos of that agony and torment make themselves known in my psychological make up. If those my grandfathers sought to protect,
cannot appreciate the effort, and therefore apply themselves to peace and care, instead of destruction and protection, then why the hell should they
have bothered considering what it has cost them, and thier children, and thier childrens children?
2)This recent mess takes the cake. I mean I thought it was bad enough that in retalliation for the deaths of 13 Israelis in bottle rocket attacks, the
Israeli government ordered the destruction of vital infrastructure,and by either extention or deliberate forethought, the death/injury of thousands of
palestinians. But now , moving OUTSIDE thier territory in order to prosecute a "search" that they had no right to perform in international waters,
and then KILLING aid workers and protesters?
Just what the hell is UN law for exactly , if not to appropriately admonish and punish such tyranical behaviour? Disgusting .
3) My last problem with this, aside from any smaller issues I might have with the situation is this. Israel have been justifying everything they have
ever done wrong (assasination, spying on non terror targets like aid groups, MURDERING innocent civilians with tanks during an illegal occupation,
continuing to build on contested land, and general ogrish behaviour) by reminding us of the threat they face every day , just by being where they are.
But I happen to know that the so called danger they face is actualy easily within thier power to completely remove. The main danger is from airbourne
missile attack, and its a pretty nasty method of terrorising people , this I accept. However, what not so many people know, is that Israel has the
technology to intercept any object on a vector which brings it over the border. They have weapons systems ,built inside Israel , which can knock any
projectile from a SCUD to a 7.62 round, right out of the sky. If the Israeli government wished it, they could completely insulate themselves from the
worst weapons used against them, but they dont , and I bet you are wondering why ? Well its very simple . Being embattled from every side, means they
can get away with things that most nations wouldnt. It means they can say "Well what else would you have us do ? We are surrounded by violent
extremism on every side" when people question them about war crimes, or building illegal towns, or assasinating people while using british ID or
anything the hell else for that matter.
Its even more disgusting because the people of God , should be more respectful of his wishes , and further because it stains the word of every Judao
Christian orator around the world. Rather than positioning themselves on the moral high ground, the Israeli government are basicaly digging themsevles
a plot in a graveyard reserved for Hitlerites, and xenophobes of every stripe. MAKES ME SICK !
