I have to agree somewhat. If this were happening to America we would not sit idly as rockets come down. We would occupy Gaza and move the people or
sned them to another country. What people don't understand is thousands upon thousands of rockets have rained down on Israel since 2001 and a lot of
it is funded by terrorist elements and anti-US regimes like Iran.
I appreciate your reply and indeed...There is a graphic counting how many of those too. Now, keep in mind of course, this is only since Israel
forcibly removed it's own Settlers to clear Gaza and try and get something like an agreement going for stability. Err... didn't work out, as you
Over 9 THOUSAND rockets fired...and as you also note, Israel is a small place. Very small.
I'd ask some of the Israel haters how the Palestinians manage to fire thousands of Rockets at only the Jews and not the Israeli Arab citizens that
also inhabit the land outside Gaza...but I've never found even a passing line of logic to support it so I gave up trying. It would seem Israel's ONLY
acceptable course of actions are either to surrender in place and just leave their own nation.....or stand there and be rocketed, sniped and mortared
until defeat comes by default. Any action in defense...is wrong? Go figure huh?
That is no longer the point.....
The point is.... W H Y meddle at all. Why take part in this on either side?
There's no justification to this...
The mere fact that so many people use fictitious scriptures about some people who did this and that 2000 years ago to argue that someone has more or
less right to ANY land in this world, is beyond ridiculos. It's pathetic, it is insane!
History teaches us two things... religion brings NO good... and apparently no matter how much effort we put into the middle east, they wont change,
none of them will. The people might yes, but the psychopaths who lead either side will not.
In all honesty, it would probably be best if all the current leaders in that area would take a bus trip together and accidentally drive out over a
mountain, then let the people try to find some more sane individuals to lead them. Maybe someone who isn't constantly holding a bible, torah or koran
in one hand.
Religion is poison and if it doesn't destroy us this time, next time it will.
For too long we have lead ourselves be clouded by these silly childish texts that try to force ideas into our heads and divide us across borders. The
pin man against man and fear into the hearts of women and children.
For what? Some stupid promise of something special once this insignificant life is over? That alone proves that man is not fit to rule this world...
blind faith is a weakness and once that weakness is covered by a shroud of weaponry it becomes more dangerous than anything else on this Earth.
It is our duty to detach ourselves from this train of thought that will take us no where. It will not enlighten us, it will not make us better people.
It will keep us imprisoned and frail.
It will hinder us from loving and respecting our neighbour for being simply another human being.
There are no differences between you and me... none. The only differences that keep us apart, that keep you from drinking water from my toast and me
from dining at your table is the words of megalomanic psychopathic corrupt individuals such as the majority of parliaments around the world and those
who sit at the top of the banking tree of death.
So why.... why do we insist on letting ourselves be fooled and pushed to hate someone halfway around the world, that most likely will never hurt you
and I, and most likely will fall asleep crying, not knowing wether they will wake up or not because we send their governments weapons and weapons of
That thought alone tears through my heart and I no longer have ANY respect for anyone who openly supports any form of military response from either
Peace... is the only way forth, and you cannot create peace through the barrel of a gun.
