There’s a lot of social media about the Middle East Conflict given that Israel has now decided to invade the Gaza Strip. I’m not the type of person who’s invested in politics, but I do hope that people out there learn about the history of the conflict, and the recent actions taken by both Israelis and Palestinians and their governing powers.
Although I’m in no particular position to takes sides, I am, however, only fully supportive of the human rights in which both Palestinians AND Israelis should have. My thoughts and prayers go out to the suffering, but not of those who continue this war of no means.
Each side has a different story to tell. Jews simply want a place of their own, having been condemned for decades and facing genocide in the 1940s. Palestinians simply want their homelands back, free from control, inequality and suppression.
Whose fault? Meh, I blame the so-called peacekeepers and the UN. It wasn’t right to strip individuals of their homeland for others. Land for refugees only resulted in making more refugees, but of a different ethnicity.
But hey, it was already done. Milk has been spilled. Just clean it up.
BUT SERIOUSLY, CANT YOU GUYS JUST COMPROMISE?
Instead we’ve got Palestine trying to get Israel out of the picture and out of the map, but they don’t have the resources to do so. Result? War. Deaths. On the other side, we’ve got Israel tired of Palestine bombing their “land”, that they’re willing to pull out their war machines just to make a point. Result? More war. More death.
But hey, there’s hundreds of videos, images, and different types of media out there to sway you to support either group. And honestly, I don’t want to hear the sappy death stories or the drama between citizens blaming other citizens when the people in control are the governing leaders. THEY decide and implement the change… and well… expect the people to follow. BUT stubborn angry people, will always be stubborn angry people.
If things were black and white:
I commend Israel in attempting to make peace with Palestine countless times according to history.
I think Palestine should get over the land divisions, make peace, establish a foundation for their current population and develop a nation that could eventually welcome its current refugees. Who knows? Maybe make a better compromise with Israel - minus the warfare. But is it ever that easy? Of course not.
So before we all become sympathetic for the Palestinians slaughtered by war tanks and bullets, they are not the only ones suffering amidst all this warfare and HAVE NOT BEEN. I’m just sayin’
Religion. Land. War. The ongoing cycle for centuries. Will it ever stop?
Overall, I think it’s better to be informed about world matters than by the subjected biases that social media can create. That’s really what I wanted to say, but I guess I wanted to put a little of my own two cents in.
I get it. Death by masses. Palestinians dying. Is it right? Of course not. Is any of this right? Hell no.
So, that’s just my opinion on the matter. If I’m misinformed, then by all means, please do correct any statement of fact I said above. But if you simply disagree, well, I just don’t really care. That’s your opinion.
….. Wow, This is what I do late at night.
