"That Israeli Arab Thing"
Yeah that whole blood splattered mid-east thing,..see art piece above. Sure looks like everybody's having a good time huh! Long ago a colliege in the commercial news biz told me never to get personally involved with a story. Especially anything to do with the Middle East.
He was right.
I recently was listening to News archive material from the 1950's through the late 90's concerning that region. Amazing. Everyone should be made to listen to this stuff. For the last 60 years nothing, as in absolutely 'nothing' has changed.
Nothing except the names of the stupid political leaders of either side. Although a few 'have' hung on even to this day.
Ninety years old, and still full of shit.
I refer to some of the retired Israeli, and Arab generals that still want blood.
In full disclosure I've always supported Israel. I also always supported the Two State solution like most sane people. However even I'm in despair at the madness of the current Israeli leadership.
Granted Israel doesn't hang women that have learned to read or hang Queers for being Queers. Heck of a choice here. Support Statehood for folks that would kill me or let folks that would leave me alone commit murder.
Here's a vision. I get arrested in a free, and liberated Palestine for crimes against the Koran. Before I know it I'm in a market place having my head cut off. Fact,..the Palestinian Authorities have killed, and still kill Queers.
What the heck we can wait 40 or 50 years for them to liberalize on the women, and orientation thing. Kind'a like Cuba.
On the other hand they're getting beaten, shot, burned, starved, robbed, humiliated,..did I leave anything out? All this by their Abrahamic siblings the Israelis.
60+ Years of pointless butchery, and counting.
Yeah I saw that video of the IDF, Israeli Defense Force, guys shooting the hell out of everybody on that ship. If they were U.S. Special Forces there'd be Courts Marshals forever! My gawd, talk about an op gone to hell.
However it seems the IDF isn't even considering an investigation. So I have to assume they were following specific orders. Shoot as soon as you land,...period.
Sorry no answers here. This mess is so bad, so complicated, and so old that only G-d can fix it.
