So, as i am jewish by blood, live with a grandmother who survived the holocaust and have family living in israel at this very moment, i believe i can
sufficiently give my 2 cents on this:
it doesn't matter what major religion is practiced by Israel. it doesn't even matter that they started building these weird westernized housing
complexes to make you feel like you're driving through suburban Utah. the only thing that is of interest here to both sides of the discussion is the
MASSIVE rift that the "zionists" have driven through the middle east.
say what you will about islam, i can say the same of christianity. these weakly constructed points of view take nothing away from the fact that most
of the world doesn't even recognize the state of palestine, or palestinians themselves. most of the world also doesn't realize how segregated the
zionists of israel are making themselves from their muslim neighbors. who are we to take away a culture from a foreign people? this is what they call
themselves, therefore this is what they are. unfortunately, it seems like many are of the opinion that they don't deserve this.
it really comes down to one simple point - the jews didn't have anywhere to go post WW2, so the united states gave them the okay to settle in israel.
under what authority this was done is beyond me, but that's what happened. since then, instead of maintaining the holiness and religious culture of
the area, some powerful, nasty few decided they would become "zionists" - those that see israel as the state of the jews. this is where absolutely
everyone should get off the boat.
this "who shot first" business is laughable, since this has been going on for decades. they've been shooting at one another for the longest time.
it's ridiculous to think that only one side is responsible for agitating the situation. the zionists have been agitating the middle east for too long
as it is. i'm surprised it's still standing.
the jewish people are a part of a wonderful culture and religious background, as are muslims. the only reason no one is living harmoniously in that
region right now is the complete attitude of segregation that the Israeli elite have taken with regards to their palestinian neighbors. it is not a
jewish state. it is just another remarkable state in the middle east, and is one that any religion or culture should be welcome in.
i'm not religious at all, but i can respect traditions that have been passed down through thousands of years, even if some are archaic and subject to
misuse. history allows for this possibility, and if anything, it is an opportunity for us to overcome our ancient selves.
this, though, is not about religion. it has NOTHING to do with being jewish or being muslim. i can say with much confidence that the true agitators of
the middle east at this moment in time are the west, and those that align themselves with a "jewish state of israel."
it is preposterous to think that we have any business being there, and that there should be such a thing as a "jewish state of israel." such factors
only serve to agitate a region and its people. i mean.. is anybody really confused why they're bombing one another right now? it just seems like
everyone has an opinion, but the facts of the matter are quite clear.
we have no business fighting somebody else's revolution, and dealing with foreign disputes of regional agitation. if the united states does not like
the status of their middle eastern political and business dealings, then we should respectfully pull out of the region and bring all of those much
needed resources home. the less we are present, is the less we are seen as instigators.
