wake-up

Wake Up

It’s a shame to be human beings. I, for one, am ashamed of being human on so many levels.

Heck, even animals are much better and more compassionate than we are.

Tomorrow people across the world will be partying and celebrating New Year, watching fireworks and competing against other countries/cities on the best fireworks display.

I myself won’t be attending the fireworks. There really is nothing to celebrate. If this is what the “New Year” brings, what’s to celebrate?

Yes, “life goes on”, but sometimes you need to pause to take a look. In a moving train you barely see the scenery. However, if in the background there is a tree lit up in flames, you’d pause, concentrate and take a good look. And you can do that while the train is still moving.

So far, presidents of the countries that constitute this corrupt world are phone calling each other to end this war. I can only assume a typical phone call goes like this:

President A: OMG! Did you see the news?!

President B: Yeah! Well my secretary told me then I had to watch it when President C called.

President A: We must do something!

President B: Indeed! Let’s make a statement of condemnation.

President A: Perfect! How about a summit?

President B: Great idea, we can group-condemn and the world can see we are as upset as they are.

But here’s the truth. These presidents are not protected by the fight-for-freedom-banner-carrying US. Israel is, and with the US just nodding, everything is suddenly humanitarian. Hamas are the enemy. Palestinians are the enemy. Kids eventually grow up to fight, so they’re the enemy too.

It’s of course, humanitarian. I mean, God forbid, a person in Gaza – cut off from the whole world – might fire a cylinder to hit the pavement and disturb people having a spa in Tel Aviv. “Oh Uhed, these kids make too much noise in the neighborhood”… “yes dear… guys, wipe them out”.

Those who yell and shout against Israel’s massacres are accused of hostility against Israel and antisemitism.

Come on guys, really, are you that stupid? Israel has a record of being chronically retarded in terms of anything humanitarian, claiming the land is “rightfully” theirs. They claim to have been “before Arabs” for thousands of years. Yet it took them till 1948 to decide to “settle” into someone else’s garden.

Israel is one ugly duckling that would grow into anything but a swan. It’s laughable, really, if you look at it from an alien’s perspective – how a group of people occupying a small piece of land on the whole planet is running the Global Show and everyone is an audience.

“But what CAN you do, really?” is a question that has always been asked. And no one – honestly – knows how to answer, including myself. We all have the rage, we all have the passion, and we’re all pissed off.

We have been conditioned by our governments – puppets in the Global Show – to not have any reaction. Any riot from us would put our countries in an “embarrassing” spot. Though if you look at it, EVERYONE across the world rallying against this creulty shows everyone else a clear message on what the good majority of people want.

And democracy goes with the majority, right? Or are the voters selected?

There can’t be two states. There is only one state, which is Palestine, with Jerusalem its capital. We won’t stop Jews from their religion or a pilgrimage. We’ve allowed that for years across history. Jerusalem’s Quarters were not named randomly.

If you insist on having Israel as a state, then why doesn’t Big Cousin Bush donate a state to Israel? How about Alaska? We shouldn’t second-guess Israel anyway, right?

“The Land of the Free” isn’t the US – it’s Gaza. Even with their isolation from the rest of the world, the massacres, the oppression, Gazans are, without a doubt, the most powerful people on Earth.

That’s what freedom is.

    You expect the whole world to come to a standstill whenever there’s (another) outbreak of Arab stupidity? Really? :O

    I should think of a creative way to insert the word “arrogance” here, but it’s hardly worth the bother. Just like this post. The whole Arab world has been paralyzed over the same issue for more than 60 years, so it’s not like you’ve just reached some bold new decision with this post. You just wanted to criticize the rest of the planet for not wallowing in your misery as much as you are… or am I missing something? Why don’t you go burn down some embassies, I bet that will cause everyone else to notice your pain.

    Yes, you are actually missing something. I clearly mentioned that life goes on, and just like when Gaza was impounded several times before, I did not make a huge issue out of it calling on the world to stop and bask in misery.

    What I have been trying to say in this post that the recent events in Gaza are of an entirely different proportions. I am not calling on the world to STOP I am simply calling for something to be done instead of the usual condemnations.

    Hamas provoking was admittedly stupid, and yes I am criticizing the Arab world and the rest of the world in general, because JUST LIKE OTHER MAJOR ISSUES this cannot be ignored.

    Burning down embassies won’t help. I don’t believe in DAMAGE. So yeah, I guess you missed a lot in this post. Re-read it with a different perspective.

    you are totally right.

    If you ever bring someone from another planet and look at our situation, he’d totally think that humans lack the basic senses of judgement & fairness. After all, this is what you should expect whenever you attempt scratching a bully.
