Until recently I believed a lot of the media propaganda too. What changed was that I had a friend who, also believing the media propaganda, WENT to
the M.E. to help where he could. He was surprised to find that his"help" was neither needed nor wanted.
A Palestinian took him into his home; my friend didn't even have to stay at a hotel. My friend was alarmed that the Palestinian didn't
automatically hate Americans and was equally surprised to discover that many Palestinians welcome Americans AND Israeli's. Apparently, not everyone
is a religious zealot even in that part of the world.
He said that Palestinians and Israeli's have kiosks/shops next to one another and intermarry even.
I found all this a little difficult to believe having been thoroughly propagandized by the media so I did a little alternative searching.
I'm a critical care registered nurse so I looked on the nursing websites to see about jobs in the M.E. I asked the recruiters about whether I'd
have to stay on a compound or wear a burka, bow obseqiously to the men folk, bring my own water, do all my margarita drinking before I landed on their
My recruiter was a little baffled (a M.E. representative, btw.) and asked where in the world I got such a ridiculous idea. She explained the posh
living conditions, clean food and water, air conditioning, solid infrastructure, etc. I think she was being condescendingly sarcastic when she
finished her presentation by saying that "we even have electricity".
We're being pushed by the media for an agenda. I've no doubt bombs are going off and that there are explosions and people dying. There may even be
hunger and poverty. You search the news in AMERICA and you'll see that in the past year there have been explosions, people dying, poverty, hunger,
etc. right here in THIS country.
As always, ask: who benefits if I believe this?
