The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a struggle over land, sovereignty, and identity. It's a source of ongoing tension and violence in the Middle East. This conflict involves competing claims to the same territory by both Israelis and Palestinians. They clash over historical, religious, cultural, and political dimensions.
Now, in 2023, around the Halloween holiday season, the situation remains a critical issue on the global stage, demanding careful consideration and resolution.
Bombs, Guns, Kidnapping, Murder
Both sides are guilty of doing these things to each other. No one is better or innocent here. Let me get into that:
Israel often appears as an affluent household with people outside, starving and desperately seeking assistance. It reminds me of Tupac Shakur's poignant words, "If I see you have food and you're throwing it around, and I'm starving, I'm gonna ask for some food." Each day, they might be turned away, being told there's no food, yet they return, knowing deep down that there's food within those walls. And as the situation worsens, their desperation forces them to find unconventional ways to secure the necessities of life. Would you do anything to feed your kid, or let it starve?
Israel has experienced the horrors of the Holocaust, a historical atrocity that should give them a unique understanding of discrimination and hate. This painful chapter should serve as a reminder of the consequences of hatred and prejudice. Jews in other countries have to worry about anti-Semitism on all levels. They do have to protect themselves against terrorists and hate.
Rather than placing blame on an entire group, no matter which group, for their beliefs or upbringing, we should strive to introduce alternative perspectives and foster understanding. Ultimately, we are all interconnected, part of the same human family, sharing common origins and experiences.
During this prolonged conflict, the toll is devastating for families on both sides. Lives are lost, and loved ones endure unimaginable pain and suffering.
The actions that transpired do not appear to be part of a grand plan orchestrated by larger governments in the Middle East. Instead, it seems that this group acted independently like a gang. The approach of targeting innocent children and women starkly contradicts the principles upheld by the Ummah. Such actions are in line with terrorism, a stance that is universally condemned and rejected. The Ummah would not stand for this. My opinion will stand based on facts I know about the Ummah, inshallah.
These actions likely deviate from the mainstream values and beliefs of Muslims. which in it's self causes issues for stopping conflict. The hate the jews endure are also a testiment to how it feels. Two oppressed people's, oppressing each other. The logic/// where did it go?
These words may have offended Iran as well. When the president of a nation known for its involvement in armed conflicts singles out a country or entity, it understandably creates tension and can be perceived agressive. Diplomacy and mutual understanding are crucial in such situations to prevent further escalation and to help seek a path toward peace and resolution. If someone was claiming you were involved in something so horrible on a global stage you'd be very defensive too.
How about keeping those things private? And call him, call them, write them.. but don't put more hate on a sect of people for no reason so blanetly. What if someone did that to the USA?
We lack so much empathy in the world...
This group justified the recent attack as retribution, citing perceived provocations such as attacks on women, the desecration of Jerusalem's al-Aqsa mosque, and the ongoing Gaza siege. They passionately argue for their right to anger, pointing to the less than hospitable treatment they endure and the feeling left out.
It's a plea that reflects upon the values taught by figures like Jesus and a global expectation of inclusivity. The whole reason for this freaking conflict is they all claim it's Holy Land. If it's the Holy Land then make it holy, NO ONE OWNS IT. Make it a shrine, a park, I don't care, but share it. You all call that place home, make it home. Jesus would have told everyone to live there. Jesus would have fed them all, and torn down the wall.
Their struggle of being treated as outsiders in their land is felt in thier music, art, and words. The analogy of the struggle of Palestinians(And other peoples) echoes the historical injustices witnessed elsewhere, like when they took all of the native americans land in the United States. The comparison highlights the struggle for rights and dignity, a fight for fundamental resources like clean water, food, school.. basic needs. We'd rather waste money on bombs and missiles than feed a bunch of kids. What?
Nobody wins when people are suffering while we turn a blind eye. The vicious cycle of hate and violence causes more pain, and in the end, nobody is a victor. It makes me mad to witness a world where violence is deemed acceptable, even in the face of differing opinions. We must question our collective morality as a species. Thinking about the alarming acceptance of such notions might help us. What truly matters is our shared desire for a better world, forgetting disagreements and focusing on creating a place where everyone can thrive.
If we fail to do so and instead choose violence, we risk annihilating ourselves and the very planet we call home. Sad for me to say but if you can't agree to disagree and help this Planet then we do deserve to have the entire planet Nuked, because if you don't care... why should I?
