People are going insane. Most of them are socialist liberals without a doggon clue about the world. The veritable arm-chair “thinkers” that don’t have any idea what the real world is like.

You see, I had written this very long, yet far too truncated, history of modern day Israel and Palestine. Yes, it was missing some history prior to the history I wrote about. Thanks to a brilliant comment by one “Inside_Passage”, I have found that history completely unnecessary. My mistake was to use history to explain a completely insane and stupid situation in the middle east. A situation that is so childish yet has caused problems with the world for centuries.
Various “experts” from both sides try to say it’s the UK’s fault for the situation. Some say they caused their own problem and are reaping the consequences for their stupid pride. Some say it’s their religion that has prolonged the situation and aggravated it.
Regardless of the weirdness of the past, and previous generations, one must understand that such vengeful circular and destructive behavior only results in the destruction of the nation or people participating in it. When the enemy (Israel) has done everything asked of them more than once to get peace of their enemy (Palestine), and then just get bombed again a month later by Palestine, you tend to realize that Palestine doesn’t want peace, they want you dead, and a vivid reality begins to overcome you.
How do you define “innocent” when a child is indoctrinated to hate Jews and the find every opportunity to kill them from the time they speak, how do you say they are innocent? Especially when the militant adults, in a cowardly way, surround themselves with the “innocent” to make retaliation by Israel look bad.
A nation, whether you “recognize” them or not, has a right to defend its borders and citizens from outside attacks. If you stockpile rocket launchers in the basement of a school, then it’s your fault your children died from a military strike to destroy it, not those that destroyed it.
While I don’t doubt there are people in Palestine that would rather just live a peaceful life. However, when the well funded Hamas gives you free medical care and schools your kids, it’s hard to tell them to get lost. The Israeli’s, on the other hand, would just rather the bombing on both sides stop. What the Palestinians don’t admit, is the reason why they are living in a bombed out house with a child missing a leg, is the very people that gave them the wooden leg and is schooling their children. Unfortunately, as long as Hamas and other such organizations exist, true peace in the middle east just won’t happen. It’s this whole sick idea that they are entitled to the land.
Hamas, PLO, etc has always been offensive toward Israel, and Israel has always responded defensively offensive (a valid war term). They bomb Palestine because Palestine has been relentlessly bombing them. Israel has stopped many times, and it has always been Palestinians that broke the truce.
The UN has never been kind to Israel. Of course, the UN has always been a bloated and inept bureaucracy friendly only to themselves and their own power.
I still say Israel has every right to defend themselves. One of the first rules of war is to absolutely and totally demoralize and obliterate the enemy until THEY sue for peace, not when some arbitrary arm-chair bureaucracy says stop. Israel has the right, after all these years of this insane crap they put up with from people that openly cry time and time again, not for peace, but Israel’s ultimate destruction by, and I quote, “bathing the sand in their blood”. Claiming to want the genocide of a people is no way to illicit sympathy or sue for peace. Yet it’s what liberals love to do, is sympathize with these blood thirsty murderers.
Hamas deserves no negotiations. Want the retaliations to stop? Get rid of Hamas and stop sending rockets into Israel. When a group of people have become so bloodthirsty that all they want is the death and utter destruction of another group of people, then what’s really going to happen is their own utter destruction, because the world, as a whole, does not accept such behavior out of any nation or people. It’s a simple solution for such a “complicated” problem. As long as you are genocidal, you will be destroyed.
Here’s how I see it:
- Israel wants to exist in peace. Would rather do business and commerce with their neighbors without fear of attack. However, will retaliate against aggression to their sovereignty and people.
- “Palestine” (as a group) wants Israel off the map, and then have peace. Will do anything, sick and bloody to do it, even send their own children with bombs strapped to them to do it. Will only make treaties if it’s militarily convenient at the time to better position themselves without fear of discovery. As Islam teaches that morality and social rules of behavior only apply to other Muslims. It’s OK to lie to infidels, even in contracts and treaties, as long as it benefits you or “Allah”. I can see why they always think they have never done anything wrong, as according to their own religion, murdering, raping, and stealing from infidels is allowed especially if you are in Jihad. Even more so if those infidels are Jews.
