I admit that I can never see the world through an Israeli eye, and more, not through the world that supports it. It is another naïve perspective of mine into how I see the world. Somehow we grow up within norms that feed us strongly with what is right what is wrong. What is just what is not? And somewhere, we never grow out of this.
I cannot but agree that we Palestinians, by all means, must be the most natural population on earth. What happened to us and continue to happen to us is just a continuous proof.
But then I try to see what the world sees in Israel vs. us. When Israel requests two billion dollars increase in annual military US aid, I think, what do these people see? I mean the Americans now. How do they succeed to convince their people that Israel needs all this to defend itself? Is there anyone in this world who is not seeing what is going on? All this money spent on equipping Israel against young children who are just carrying stones, and someone who is maybe hiding a kitchen knife. Is this sense of sense lost from the world? If Israel prepares fireworks against Palestinians, it can still be victories. If they only use Molotov, they will end this war against Palestinian youth in less time. This entire armory against unarmed children. How can the world not see it, and yet, blind them and enjoy being convinced that Israel is the victim?
With all this money invested in the war against Israel, Israel can provide Palestinians with better lives rather than building an infrastructure of humiliation and discrimination.
These funds can transform killing into a living, instead of this perpetual terror state of affair.
Palestinians are turning their lives into a final destination-killing machine to tell the world that oppression; discrimination and injustice cannot breed life… only death.
The calculation of the Palestinians against Israel is simple. It is a fight for some dignity that is still not stripped away.
Israel has created a collective sense within every single Palestinian that what he witnesses are coming to him next. The terror Israel is deliberately imposing on us is so close. It is there on the street. It can happen any moment at any time. No one is exempted.
Transforming a nation into slaves cannot persist. Cannot be implemented no matter how successful you may think you are. Building Nations on discrimination cannot be peaceful. It is true that Israel and the United States and the West, in general, may be an outcome of the same mentality of colonialism. I can understand why in the United States Israel is nothing but a reflection of their own. After all. The US has been built on the living and killed corpses of the Indians and their lands. The slavery of the Black people is still producing itself into classes of the good and the less good.
After decades of being naïve, and still am. I came to a full realization that the world is run by the brokers of wars who need to make sure that the arms industry remains in business. But somewhere, where are the people in all this. All those scenes of Israeli army not just brutally but seriously stupidly attack children less than five years old. What does the American think when his country is supplying a troop of soldiers fully armed with those collections of deadly weapons to catch a boy who is three? When a military jeep rams into a Palestinian who is less than fifteen because he is throwing a stone. When at least ten soldiers surround a Palestinian passerby and harass him with their weapons and strip him in public because being a Palestinian is an attempted threat.
The escalation of the current wave of Israeli terror against Palestinians is not coincidental. The way they harass people in the streets is only an intended organized tactic to provoke people into death. The scenes on the streets of Jerusalem and elsewhere in Palestinian cities is so discriminative; it makes blood flush to the head of any sensible person.
The whole world is applauding for the Israeli government and its psychopathic army that makes its fame on killing children and youth.
We do live in a sinful world under a mirage of a world peace that is orchestrated by the masters of war.
