I am. It's written and produced by the West's outgoing gerontocracy. And it's going to take all of us to clean up the mess.
“Our bus leaving the Palestinian territories was stoned by the very Palestinian children for whom our taxes, in part, funded the “education”. One of the windows was smashed. It was hardly an “incident” at all – quite commonplace I understand.”
Substitute the word Palestinian for Harvard, same thing.
And now the government schools in the west are doing the same thing and worse.
Good people of every religion should mourn the death and injury of all the children and innocents from either side. The cycle of hatred goes on and on: Rinse (the blood off the pavement) and repeat. Qui Bono? The rich men north of Richmond and their counterparts in most every country. Will we ever learn? Or, the haters gonna hate and the fighters gonna fight. and the rest need to be out of the way. (increasingly hard to do given the technology of war at hand now.)
A two state solution will never solve the problem. Hamas wants death to all Israeli's and until HAMAS is removed, there won't be peace for Israel or Palestine.
You are correct about our own stupidity. Somehow we think that the nicer and more generous we are to terrorists, we'll turn them around. It's never going to happen.
I feel as you do and write at commonfolk365.substack.com. Come take a look!
That's the best opener I have read in a long time...
Raheem - my Pulse+ app is not working and hasn't for several weeks. Just trying to let you know. Have tried reinstall. I miss it!
Thanks for the up close observation. The insanity of funding our own destruction. The people that call themselves Palestinians have been victims of their leaders for almost 100 years now. Now they are cannon fodder again.
Extremely disappointed that the author confuses causes with effects. I’m a European of Ashkenazi descent and I’m disappointed about the European support for the Zionist settler colonialism project.
Hamas was created and funded by Israel. The goal: to undermine the support for the secular Fatah. And now the Palestinians are blamed for the rise of Hamas? Hello?
We’ve indeed seen this movie with the CIA-created Mujahideen. We indeed know how it ends. Well, some of us do, anyway.
Finally, Zionism is not Judaism and is not Jews. There are many anti-Zionist Jewish organisations.
In 2007 we got lost and ended up in the West Bank. We asked for directions and were curtly directed to a dead end street. A gaggle of young boys with what looked like rocks in their hands surrounded our car and we suddenly realized we were not safe. Later we found out that the license plate on our car identified us as the enemy.
Sadly, You are a voice crying in the wilderness.
I’ll say it....I AM SICK TO DEATH OF THESE MUZZIES!
Sadly, The product of teaching hate.
Unfortunately, 99% of Americans and Europeans don't know the history.
This is a blood-lust feud that goes back 2,000+ years. It has never ended. Study the history like I've done for the last 60 + years. But most important, study the 20th Century history and what the East European 'colonizers' did to the native Arabs of Palestine, then you will better understand what a blood-lust feud is.
There has never been a resolution of the issue...and there never will be. Innocent men, women, and children are sacrificed as in a ritual to perpetuate the blood-lust. The Torah, the Talmud, the Quran and even the New Testament reek of blood-lust.
So, getting all emotional and making statements of disgust and blame mean nothing, because they emanate from ignorance: ...what goes around, comes around. Or, as Paul said: As you sow, so shall you reap.
The wheels of karma never stop turning.
Do you feel the majority of Muslims disavow the three choices ?
