Desire, and Human Nature. EVERYONE I know wants to live in peace.
Well, the real world doesn't work that way.
You need to separate what you want, from real life political conditions.
WHY are those Jews living in Iran, still alive ? Hmmmm........
Do you think those 25,000 Jews would be safe if Israel attacked Iran? Do you know what happened to the Arab worlds 800,000 Jews after the 1948 war?
Politics are controlled by the Supreme Leader and his council. They already had a "revolution" to change their Government. You make it sound like
they can NEVER have another one...........
You don't seem to get what I'm trying to point out.
I already signed that petition to nominate that Ronnie guy for a nobel peace prize. Does that change anything? Does that change the fact that 75
million Iranians are daily subjected to virulent anti-zionist propaganda? Do you get the 'information' filter there is much 'thicker' than it is
here?? Just think for a second, in practical terms. Iran has cartel on the news, as said, in in IRNA. Therefore, everyone with Iranian cable is
subjected to only one type of news; if they have satelite, they probably pick up Al Jazeera (which is just as radical) or Al Arabiya, assuming they
are Arabic speakers, as in the Eastern provinces. This situation can only create a very large population of HIGHLY misinformed people. And yet you
feel there exists a substantial 'base' in which you can appeal your appeal to peace.
It's not that I don't want peace, I just want to know the overall situation before I start pandering to my would-be killers for peace.
Do you get that? Do you get the Israeli government isn't a "bad guy"?? It's seems this is implied in your post. That for some inexplicable reason,
both Israel and Iran want to attack each other; that no 'context' exists for why Iran opposes Israel, or for why Israel must be circumspect by
taking precaution by attacking their nuclear facilities.
Machiavelli is a good place to start if you want to get an idea of how government has ALWAYS functioned, whether in the west or the east. If you start
offering fig leafs - do you think the hard hearted Islamists will be moved by that act?? They will laugh at you, and then kill you, and then laugh
some more at how easy it was.
One can hope and dream. Unfortunately, Naysayers, like yourself love to point out "facts"
It takes two to tango. I have no problem with some people holding out their hands to make peace. But you better make sure you're making preparations
in case your quixotic dreams of peace with an enemy with religious convictions to see your state destroyed, doesn't work out.
Its those who are actually willing to sacrifice themselves, that are informed.
And they are outside the mainstream.
Again, it is only logical to assume that the majority think along the same lines as the government, since the IRNA - the state owned new media in Iran
- shapes their views. Your insistence, or rather, refusal to acknowledge this only shows how fanciful your thinking is.
