First a unilateral occupation of a people via their land, then fighting and killing children under the pretext of ‘national security’ now phosphorus burns. What next? Can Israel get away with anything? Isn’t there a limit to what the world will tolerate?
Let me clarify. I am not against Israelis right to defend their ‘country’. And I put the word ‘country’ in quotes for a specific reason: it’s not really still their country is it? The land which they called theirs was rudely taken away from 3million people and handed it over to the Jews coz of what Europe did to them. What did the world expect the 3million people do to? Disappear into thin air? Some articles (I shall post them when I have the time) suggest that these displaced people should be assimilated into society by the other Arab countries. But why? Just coz the western world, which is responsible for all the atrocities on the Jews, decide that the Jews should get the land? What logic is that? If these 3 million were given an alternative plot of land where they could live and they were happy in, then it would be a different issue. But that’s not the case.
And what is Israel doing now? Are the unilateral actions they are undertaking going to help them in anyway? On the contrary, it is going to fuel the anger even more and really get people mad. Farmers who used to deal with the Israelis on a daily basis will refuse to do so now seeing how the very same Israelis have ruthlessly burned their families down. And I think Israel deserves this enmity, given the way it has acted.
One does not make friends out of killing one’s ‘enemies’. One makes friends out of compassion and sympathy.
