Seriously, the intense rising levels of racism and ignorance on ATS lately has become unbearable. I have been lurking around ATS for years before
registering, and I consider ATS to be a place of sanity in a mad and ignorant world.
I believe that hatred derives from ignorance, especially hatred towards an entire "race" of people. It is very easy to generalize an opinion from a
selected few, and form ideas inductively. Hatred towards so many people almost never forms by direct experience, and if and when that comes, usually
the opinion is changing. I can understand people's frustration about the Jewish people, I really do, but I will get to it shortly, I promise.
Before getting started, I wish to emphasize a few points:
A. I am a Jewish, by birth, born in Israel.
B. I do not believe we are superior, I think that humans are the same everywhere (direct experience).
C. I did not choose to become Jewish, I was simply born that way. Like most of you were born Christians in the U.S.
D. That is all that is related to me and the Jewish religion. I don't care about the religion, I do not practice any of its traditions either. I
consider myself as a human being above all, and so are most of other Israelis. The majority in Israel are like me, secular
, but born as Jews so
they are considered Jewish to the outside world, as a "title". As an identity.
I'm writing this post only because i'm touched by the hatred that is spreading here lately, not just for the Jewish but also for other nations and
"races" (We are all one, time to realize it). I saw some harsh posts lately that praised Hitler, denied the holocaust, and even demanded another one.
But as far as i'm concerned, this hatred for a WHOLE nation of people as a result of some generalization has GOT to stop.
I'm not talking only about Israelis and Jewish people here, I wish to speak for everyone who undeservedly feel that they should be hated because of
their ORIGINS, and for no other reason than that.
Now, I know that the wealthiest people in the world are Jewish. But am I rich because i'm Jewish? NO! I'm poor as HELL and I can barely afford to rent
my own place! I am a slave to that system, created by Red Shield, just like the other 99% of the population in Israel. We don't share any "benefits"
because we share the origin of some of the biggest and vicious criminals ever walked the face of the Earth. No, those greedy bastards keeping it all
for themselves. So vice versa, the opposite is true. We suffer from it even more because we share the origin of a selected few, it helps to create the
illusion of an Anti-Semite world. That is ignorance too. But believe me when I say this, there are MANY people in Israel who have come to the light of
truth, there are discussion boards just like ATS in Hebrew, TONS of Facebook pages and groups who tend to awake the others about this whole prison
that we live in, just like in the U.S.. Remember the recent Israel Loves Iran
It is all a part of the awakening.
While Occopy movement protested on Wall Street, do you know where our equivalent movement for social justice started last year, and placed tents all
around? That's right,
We are victims of the system as much as you are, so please remember... We are all ONE in this fight against tyranny. The great majority of the Jewish
people and Israelis, we are the same as you do. We are evolving, we slowly understanding the system more and more. We want to be free, and we want
people around us to be happy so we could be happy too. We all starting to realize, that we are, literally, ONE organism.
I was talking about direct experience previously, I know that reading a thread on ATS is not such an experience as meeting someone face to face. But I
just want to point out that people are people everywhere, I have traveled the world and I have friends from many places, including from places whom I
have never thought to have friends before, such as from Iran, Turkey, and Syria. Great people who are just like the majority of "their" people, want
to be free, want to be happy, etc.
No one WANTS to hate. People simply hate because of ignorance, because of a media that is "spreading darkness at the speed of light" (T. Mckenna), or
because of generalizations from a selected few that are in the spotlight. But truth is:
Muslims, Jews, Christians and Buddhists included.
Don't hate Muslims because very few of them committed suicide bombs.
Don't hate Jews because very few of them are in control of the economy.
It is very easy to hate, but very hard to understand why while going in depth. That is why direct experience is important.
You won't be seeing the majority of us on the news however, simple because we are not interesting and we are not making dark headlines to serve the
I hope that this post helps making the forums just a little more nicer to be around.
I wish to thank everyone who have read thus far, thank you for hearing me what I had to say. Shalom and peace to everyone.
