I don’t even know why I’m wasting my time writing this out.
Everybody already has their opinions anyway.
Israel was not created for the Jews.
The Jews were used to colonize Palestine by the elites in order to control the eastern Mediterranean and the vital assets in that area, those being the Suez Canal and the vast oil and gas fields.
What’s going on there is colonial imperialism.
The Palestinians were in the way.
Much effort is spent by Jews and Christians in justifying Israel’s existence there. Some people say that God sanctioned Israel for the Jews.
God did no such thing.
God doesn’t sanction land for people.
Our Old Testament was invented and written by the Jews. That’s hardly an objective source.
I’m sure there were prehistoric men who lived in the area 15 to 20,000 years ago who had gods also, and I’ll be willing to bet that they felt that their God had sanctioned the land for them.
They were wrong.
Additionally, those people are dead, and the dead have no rights.
Other people say that there was no formal country called Palestine. That is used to do delegitimize the rights of Palestinians.
There is no moral right to say that people are not entitled to land because they don’t have a formal government and formal legal documents designating such.
That is our western value system speaking.
Still others claim that were no Palestinians living there. That is simply not the case. Muslims were in the majority for over 800 years in what is now Israel from 1200 to now. The Christians were in the majority from the year 500 to the year 1200. The Jews only had two centuries where they were in the majority.
Another argument promoted is that the area was renamed Syria-Palestinia by the Romans when they conquered the land and killed the Jews. The name Palestinian comes from Philistine and was according to some used intentionally to insult the Jews.
So what? That means nothing.
Who cares who named the area? Or why?
An attendant argument is that there’s no connection between modern-day Palestinians and the Philistines from the Bible.
I don’t know about that. Where did the Palestinians come from? If the Romans killed the Jews, who was left in the area?
Some supporters of Israel would like you to believe that the Palestinians rushed in to confront the Jews in 1948 much as the Los Angeles Lakers would show up in San Antonio to play the Spurs.
The numbers and the facts don’t support that.
The Palestinians were there. They came from there. They had to come from somewhere.
Probably they came from the same stock of people as the Jews.
If we go back far enough we see that there was a tremendous mixing of religions back in the early years. People were borrowing from different religions and experimenting.
When Islam moved into the area, it seems reasonable that many Jews might convert to Islam.
Just as we have people switching religions today, we have peoples switching religions back then.
People are always searching for the meaning of life. Our biology has not changed much in thousands of years. Indeed, we are trapped within our biology.
The attempts to delegitimize the Palestinian people are arguments put out by the Empire to justify its immoral actions.
The Palestinians were colonized and are being colonized just as the Native Americans were colonized.
They are being pushed off their lands.
That doesn’t negate the state of Israel.
Israel certainly can exist.
It can exist because this is the way man is. This is the way man has always been.
Man has always moved across borders, set up shop and taken over the joint.
It’s the right of Palestinians to resist.
We should admire that resistance because we would do the same thing.
Would the Jews not push back if someone was taking their land?
They already are. That’s why they’re pounding the Gaza Strip with bombs.
This is the nobility of man, of which there is very little.
Let’s not sugarcoat it with lies.
