Ughhh, this is one of those topics I cant let slide by without a comment. My head would explode if I did, I'm sure of it, lol.
You cant take 1 chapter out of entire collection of books and come up with a fair idea of the complete story.
Whats missing are the moments prior to this scene. The IDF repelled out of a helicopter gunship, under the cover of darkness, in riot gear and
carried heavy weaponry, they were the attackers. I'm def pro-peace but I know fer sure if I needed to protect myself, or mine, there'd be some crap
going down. It'd be on like Donkey Kong..lol.
These ppl were civilians and had every right to protect themselves by any means necessary, sticks, poles, chairs...etc.. Being thrown over board
is just one of those means.
I'm not anti-jewish/Israel/semetic, I am however anti-zionist. Whats going on over there is wrong. It's evil and immoral and why it's allowed
to continue is beyond me.Theyre using the excuse of Hamas, who were democratically voted in, to use collective punishment against innocent ppl. The
Palestinians are having their familial lands ripped out from underneath them, community water supplies are being blocked off, community mills are
being destroyed and crops ripe with food are being overturned.
Why must hospitals be blown up? Or school houses with children still in them? Why block food, water filters, and medical supplies from ppl
who've done nothing wrong? It's genocide, the killing of a group of ppl because of who they are. By the grace of God or by dumb luck we happened to
be fortunate enough to be born (insert anyplace) and not in the M.E. All because of some BS religion that states one group of ppl deserve more than
another. Because their God says this small patch of Earth is their holy ground. 'Their' God? A God who holds one group of ppl higher than another is
not a kind, just and loving God.
So, If I were one of these ppl on this boat, I'd fight for my safety and I'd fight for those who cant or arent able to fight for themselves
because it's the right thing to do, because somebody needs to help these ppl who deserve health, happiness and safety just as much we do. I dont
believe in a 'God' per say but I do believe we are all 'part of a Whole'. I believe that 'if' we are ever to be judged it will be directly
related to how we treat our fellow man.
So, there. There are my thoughts on everything from that clip to the reasons why that ship was going there to begin with.
I have to add 1 more thing to my HUGE post but I feel it's true and would maybe change the course of whats happening in the M.E. I have a very
dear friend that I met online about 3 yrs ago, Ghassan is His name. Him and his family live in Beruit and We've all become 'pen pals' of a sort.
They are some of the most amazing ppl I've ever had the chance to know. I love everyone one of them, from the mother to the wives to the brothers to
the little sister. It's personalized whats happening over there for me. I always say..."If everyone had a Ghassan then there'd might not be a war
at all." Everybody needs a Ghassan.
