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.
