jtem replied to your post “One time, I burnt the Israeli flag. If I ever do it again, I will be…”
The Palestinians are their own worst enemies. “How dare you bomb me after I fired rockets and mortars at you!” I agree that a Palestinian state is way overdue, but it’s up to them to want it more than they want killing.
I’d bet $100 that Israel would make up a terrorist organization so that it could continue it’s murder of the Palestinians.
On top of that, as far as I can see, Israel needs to fuck off, and the nations that support Israel and/or Zionism aught to give away a slice of their own territory to the people of the nation formally known as Israel for a new state that doesn’t revolve around imperialism and colonization.
But don’t they have an interest in destabilizing the middle east (etc) so it can be made more easier to exploit for resources?
Is there no solution but for the Palestinians to accept genocide on their knees, JTEM?
That’s just how I see it (so far), I know this is bigger then the both of us, sitting cozy on tumblr.
You’ve been heavily misinformed.
Google: al-Nakba, “The catastrophe.”
According to the Palestinians, this is when a numerically superior Israeli force drove them off the land. But, according to reality it’s when the Palestinians themselves TOGETHER with Egypt, Jordan & Syria declared a war of annihilation on Israel.
Get it? A tiny Israel — much smaller than it is today, with no modern army — was facing war of annihilation from a vastly superior enemy, yet the Palestinians have completely flipped this. They have reversed it.
Instead of a tiny Jewish state struggling against all odds just to exist, the Palestinians today insist that it was a militarily superior Israeli army engaging in ethnic cleansing.
That’s today. That’s the narrative the Palestinians are spoon feeding you today.
And look at the current “Crisis.” Three Israelis were kidnapped and murdered. Three of them. The Palestinian authority did nothing. Then an Arab identified youth was kidnapped and murdered. The Israelis arrest and prosecute his attackers. In response, the Palestinians begin raining rockets & mortars on Israeli civilians… and when the Israelis strike back at Hamas, they pretend to be victims.
You don’t have to like the Israelis, you don’t have to agree with them but the fact is that the Palestinians are unworkable.
What do they want? A Palestinian state in Gaza and the west bank?
THEY AREN’T SAYING THAT!
They’re not fighting for a Palestinian state, they’re fighting against Israel. They are literally AGAINST peace. They don’t want peace. They want “Victory.”
I will have to try the wikipedia articles I am compelled to cram in with my assignments and legal docs I’ve gotta critique. haha.
RE: Israeli’s murdered etc, did you blog about it? can you link me please? or any references/tags? would be appreciated.
Lastly, no Israeli/Palestine argument is complete without some sort of shit flinging, so fuck you, call me misled! haha, yeah I probably am tbh I’m pretty keen to learn all I can without being too emotional about it.
P.S aint non of this shit black and white.
