The tensions in the Middle East are far too complex for most Americans to comprehend. What is happening in Israel and Gaza today will be written in our next generation’s history books. Who they blame will depend on where you’re from.
It’s beyond the question of whose right and wrong at this point. The Vendettas that have existed for 100′s or even 1000′s of years have permanent scars too deep to heal in our lifetime. All we can do is pray that one day everyone in the world will wake up tomorrow and realize that all this time, we were simply supposed to live a happy life while being good to one another and respecting our human race family as one.
Everyone’s god is looking upon this planet today and wondering how their children have gotten so out of control. Sometimes we all need to learn to take a step back and focus on the reasons why we were put on this Earth to begin with. It certainly was not for war or to kill one another. To me there will always be one god for all 7 billion of us and it doesn’t matter what religion you believe in.
History books about the Middle East are measured by the murders of their leaders and people. It all serves as a chess move towards an end game. Here is one of the latest chess moves (Hamas commander Ahmed Jabari killed on video) in central Gaza on Wednesday.
The strike marked the beginning of Operation Pillar of Defense to target Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror organizations in Gaza. At this point there does not seem to be an orderly government in Gaza but rather a region controlled by different gangs. As well multiple rockets hit Tel Aviv in the first attack on Israel’s commercial capital in 20 years. Many innocent civilians and children were killed in the attacks and the feud between Israelis and Palestinians has reached the next level.
This article is not taking sides but simply observing what is about to happen. Israel said it will “do what it must” to defend the Jewish state and all sides seems to respond with only attacks of perpetual revenge.
Any sensible person would understand that this will ultimately lead to the extinction of one or all sides. The only way to live together in this world is to do so in peace. Children in most of the Middle East are taught or programmed to hate their enemy but who really is the enemy? What I know is that when masses are divided on beliefs there is a great possibility that both sides are wrong and right, much like the the argument of abortion. To some it’s murder of a child and to others it’s personal liberties taken away by it’s government. Strong arguments on both sides but who is right?
I certainly do not agree with the act of terrorism or murder from any group but I feel obligated to ask why each side is so angry and can there be a compromise. If there is no compromise then maybe all sides are a menace to society. America will be drawn into this conflict soon as will China and Russia and the world we once lived in will be very different in the coming years as World War III takes shape. Whether we all survive is up to us.
God have mercy on our souls and give us the strength to learn how to live in harmony.
