I know many of you have seen these pictures floating around on Facebook and Twitter in support of the hunger strikers for Palestine, I wanted to show my support by way of blogging but my support does not fall on one side or the other but on the side of the people who want to live an ordinary life without war. I know many people that are fighting this fight far more fervently as it belongs to them and it is their home and their people and for them I show solidarity as war, especially this unresolvable, must leave little hope of a life examined without pain. This is an unending battle between Israel and Palestine the situation is so historical and complex it is hard to pinpoint blame, although it could easily be put on a refusal of a partition but then that area has always been many an Empires playground and never stable long term, to try to point the blame will leave you indolent.
It is not my battle and so I shan’t be dragged into long arguments about it, just like the war, they are unending brutal and violent in their emotion, don’t believe me have a read here in the comments. I can only show my support for those who are being dehumanised amongst all of it, such as the victims of ethnic cleansing, bombings, shootings and child prisoners. The Arabs and the Jews have a long standing argument, inherent distrust and inability to compromise for fear of one-upmanship, put simply they just don’t like each other, this isn’t helped by the Arab League, Egypt, Russia, United States, The United Nations and the European Union “helping”, amongst them some of the the biggest warmongers and propaganda artists attempting to find a peaceful resolution, with that lot on board you can expect this war to continue well into the 22nd century.
Pop resolution; The solution is two independent states, the reasoning at this stage of their development can only ever be separating them, just as a partition was the thinking in earlier years, I know from experience people want to argue that it is far more complex than that, where to draw that line down the middle for instance? all made a little more complicated with the dark lord natural resource overseers joining in, there is a reason why wars don’t end and if you see United States or even Russia looming in the background you need not look much further for motive, although I am fully aware the Arabs and the Jews need little persuasion but I can’t help but see lurking intent.
Anyway this is solidarity for the innocent, may they find their promised land soon.
