All of the Gaza strip and more was considered holy ground; dumping a group of refugees from WW2 in the middle of that; and setting up a separate
state, was the most disrespectful thing, that could have been done to both the Jewish and Moslem people. Israel was segregated instead of assimilated
into all of society...that was the big mistake; how many other countries have been set up that were strictly made up of refugees by other countries? I
can't think of another...and then taking sides instead of being uber diplomatic and treating all equally?
I have nothing against Jewish or Moslem faithed people, but they both should come together and see they got the shaft; just because the area fell
under territory of the crown...didn't mean all social convention needed to be trampled. But if you fall under a territory of another country; you can
very well expect to get dictated too...it's like using foreign aid as leverage; once you accept aid you have to accept the stipulations that come
with it, and if you grow dependent on it...then you're gonna take a knee or try to fight those obligations; Saddam was trying to break out of the
obligations...and look where it got him.
The sad thing is many governments don't have transparency, with it's people so the citizens have to find out the hard way, what the hell is going
on...usually after the fact if it ever comes to light, what they were up to. I honestly have no idea what the US agenda is for other countries, the
propaganda from growing up here, I would assume we are in foreign affairs, simply trying to gain world peace and harmony. Is that the case? I honestly
have no idea, and if that is the case...then the political leaders of the US have a really odd way of going about it. Because I think just, shear
talking and diplomacy could achieve that.
In other posts I have been against foreign aid...in it's current state you bet. Billions are given to build weapon stock piles and military
forces...that's what I'm against. If instead 100% of it went to schools and building a sustainable infrastructure, and aiding programs abroad to
garner cultural understanding and foreign relations then I'd be all for it. As it is now foreign aid is like giving both sides a meal, putting a cork
on the end of one sides fork and then giving the other side a knife to go along with the fork...that's the kind of agenda I don't get.
A good sign that propaganda is working; is when people start hating other people they've never met, or spent enough time with; to form an
understanding of life from the others perspective...and we call politicians the puppets.
