What Israel Has Achieved with Her Slaughter in Gaza

I was appalled when I heard the Israelis’ latest attack was directed to a cemetery. As if the outrageous previous attack on a school with UN flag wasn’t impressive enough. As if the civilian casualties consist of women, children and the elderly aren’t satisfying enough, now they have to destroy a graveyard as well. Even the dead weren’t spared!

With the slaughter in Gaza Israel has successfully grabbing the dubious honor of becoming the most hated country in the world from their best friend the US. Israel has also succeeded in turning moderate Muslims (which never have contempt nor dislike for the Jews – at least not like other western Jews haters) into Jews haters and Osama's cheering squads if not outright supporters.

I for one who’ve never had any particularly strong feeling for Israel nor the Israelis/Jews – except that wishing for the government to never formalize a relation with Israel until they recognize Palestine, now is hoping for the government to send our own troops to Gaza or at least permit our young men who want go overseas to do their jihad in Gaza, and to stop any cooperation and dealing with Israelis until indefinitely.

I also found myself understanding the hatred felt by some to the Jews. Hatred which have its origin in their understanding of Scriptures. I start to see Israel as an evil force, and the Jews as individuals who have no thoughts for others except themselves. How could I not? They decide to punish the Palestinians for the annoyance caused by the rockets fired to their region by blockading Gaza for almost 2 years and slaughtering its population. Their tit for tat is done base on their sense of justice, which is non existence. Their argument that other country would've reacted exactly the same was laughable. What other country would exactly do like what they did except for their beloved friend, the US? That's why they're buddies because they're so alike. Look at India, they didn't go attacking, or nuking their neighbour after Mombai attack.

If holocaust happened to other races, the lesson they learned would probably that if they ever have power they’ll make sure that it never happens again. To anybody. But this is the Jews we’re talking about, the race who defied God after being chosen, the bigger ingrate one could never find on the face of the earth. The lesson they learned is that they will do what ever necessary, by crook or by hook to keep themselves safe and free.

When I heard that Osama bin Laden had finally sent his new message calling for Jihad in Gaza, I felt like cheering him. Good for him. I also found myself wishing that he would live long enough to terrorize the Great Buddy of Israel and other cowardly Arab leaders and bring his fight for once and for all into Israel. Imagine that! Support for terror and chaos from a peace loving girl like me!

I who was aghast when I found out that my own brother bought Osama bin Laden’s poster and regarded him as a hero who deserved to be idolized. This is from me who despises and considers those who designed, ordered and executed suicidal bombings which targeted civilians as evil. Just imagine how others more radical, others with more justified reasons, others who become the victims of Israel would feel.

The slaughter in Gaza which was precluded with almost 2 years blockade and has caused thousand of Palestinians lives, has succeeded in creating more enemies for Israel and the Jews. It has succeeded in raising support for Osama bin Laden, Al- Qaeda, and Hamas, regardless whether those supporting Muslims agree with their ideals, methods or goals. Those new supporters just want someone, anybody, who would stand up and stating their willingness to fight for the oppressed.


I see no peace in the future. There would be no peace as long as those with military powers have no intentions to have peace materialize.

If there is peace, there’s no more justification for their spending. What they need is continuous wars to practice and hone their skills in the battle fields.

Hence, we'll never see the ending of wars and conflicts.

Blame it on the Israelis

Who would’ve thought that it’s possible for our world to become a gloomier place to live in. With the global economic crisis, several wars on progress, and more wars in the making, everyone seems to incline to forget that once upon the time they’ve made an ambitious plan called MDGs. I guess with the war on terror being promoted by one of the most powerful world leaders, WMDs has no other choice but to usurp MDGs.

And as the results we have increasing numbers of suicides, homicides, and psychos running lose on the streets, in the workplaces, and practically every where with none the wiser. And let’s not forget the very real and stunning number of civilian casualties in various parts of the world. Not that those figures managed to stun those needed most to be stunned to turn the tragedy around.

We’re living in a very unhealthy and crazy environment where contradictions, hypocrisies and double standards are normal occurrences. In a feeble effort to keep my sanity in tact I avoid news channels, and immerse myself completely in one of my vises, watching various Korean, Taiwanese, and Japanese series. However, just like drinking, one can’t stay drunk forever. One has to finally wake up with the after effect and back to the unpleasant realities.

The world is definitely not a pretty place to live in. Particularly for those caught up in the middle of conflicts and wars. Where no heroes rush to save the helpless victims, where no happy ending to look forward to and there’s always this certainty that regardless whether they’re right or wrong, the powerful will always prevail.

In the real life of our world, the voice of reason, and humanity have no effect nor power to change the world into a better place. We have been utterly deceived and manipulated to design a system that gives a free reign to limited few to shape and run our world.

And unfortunately for those stupid people, namely us, the gullible, the good citizen of the world, those few who run the world are the warmongers, the greediest and the worst among us.

Those who when told that the policy they’re taking are wrong and opposed by practically the whole world only said unconcernedly “So what?” Which is one of the most typical characters of those the worst among us. They simply don’t care about what other people think, what they care about is only that they get what they want. By the way, this is Dick Chaney I’m talking about in case you don’t know.

Those who when asked “Why are you bombing and attacking civilians?” justified his country’s actions by saying that “If you back down from attacking your enemies – the terrorists – simply because they are using civilians as their shield, then you’re giving a very wrong message to them!”

I got chill when I heard his justification. I wonder whether he’s listening to what he just said. Whether it’s possible that he doesn’t get the menace, the cruelty, the injustice, and the plain and simple fact of how wrong it is? Good guys, the heroes, the humane, the sane, don’t attack and kill civilians, NO MATTER WHAT. ONLY BAD GUYS DO THAT! ONLY TERRORISTS DO THAT!. But who am I kidding, in case you don’t know that’s Benyamin Netanyahu speaking.

The conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinians is the biggest deterrent to the world peace. Most of the countries in the world get this except for few. The world deserves a peace. It doesn’t deserve to be plagued and bothered by the constant fighting and bickering between these two. Nobody wants to witness the sufferings of the people who are caught up in the conflict between them. Certainly not on daily basis. Certainly not like what we’re witnessing recently.

And when the world is finally moved against Israeli’s attack on the Palestinians, and asking for immediate cease fire, guess who stands up to support Israeli’s right to attack to defend themselves from relatively harmless missiles fired by Hamas?

I’m not going to name names, suffice it to say that it’s a country which deemed it necessary to drop nuclear bombs in two big cities of its enemy simply to win the war, regardless of the civilians costs. It’s a country which deemed it necessary to attack and occupied other sovereign country simply to topple its leader.

I’m really sicken and tired by all the things I see happening in the various parts of the world. I hate that I have to say bye bye MDGs, welcome WMDs! Yes. I’m changing from against WMD to pro WMD! I’m that piss if you must know!

And to one of the biggest players in the world peace or should I say world's recent tragedy - the Israelis, please take off the gloves already! Stop playing nice for a few hours before continuing with your bombings. Get serious and get down to business. Drop all the pretense of being a good guy. Drop your WMDs in all the Palestine’s cities to finish them off, you don’t have to worry about a thing. Your great buddy will stand by your side.

The whole world will probably say their peace of mind for a relatively short time, but that’s all about it. No real sanctions. At least not in this world and not as soon nor as terrible as what some of us want to befall upon you.

Do it, and give us a peaceful world we need. I need my sanity back. I don’t want my blood pressure to skyrocketing whenever I accidentally turn my TV on.

The peace is not in the hands of the weak, it’s not in the hands of the needy. It’s in the hands of the powerful and the rich.

It’s not the Palestinians who are the major obstacle to peace. It’s the Israelis.

How to Begin 2009

With regards to this Blog, I might start with writing a number of reviews of kdrama and jdrama. The long holidays gave me the chance to finally watched few of those DVDs I bought.

But, it might take sometimes for my reviews to be available here for they are entirely dependent on my mood.

So to help you out, I'll give you some clues:

1) Don't listen to those who get upset by fake musicians in the Bethoveen Virus, this drama is actually very good. And I adore Kim Myung Min who plays Master Kang. What a great actor!

2) My opinion of Japanese drama has shifted greatly after watching Hotaru no Hikari. It is a must see. You just have to see it. It's so good that the moment I finished it I just want to watch it all over again. And I never feel that way about other series!

3) Painter of the Wind is also a good one. But I don't like how it ended.

Hopefully I'll get into the mood soon enough before the desire to write them disappear all together.
