At some points, I come to pause and think of all the innocent Jews who deserve to have a land. They are not guilty, they are humans, and just like any other person deserves to have a home and a society to live at, so does every Jew. Yet what stops that thought is the terror policy Israel follows in order to maintain its state.
Perhaps the people who live in Israel do not all agree with the oppression their state has had on Palestinian people, but there’s a big portion that believes Israel is doing whatever it has to do to keep their land, which was never theirs from the first place.
Here I must speak of the difference between Zionists and Jews. Judaism is one of the three religions that have a holy book to follow. For that, it is among the accepted religions, even within Islam. The non accepted part of Jews is the Zionists. If we go back almost a hundred years ago, and dig deeper into the Israeli state and how it was formed, we come to realize that they literally forced themselves in a land that was never their own. Jews had two options, taking over Palestine, or taking over Argentine.
They chose Palestine. They say it’s because Palestine is a holy land of their religion; that’s not true. Palestine is simply an Arab country that has no enough support to stop the Zionists from forcing themselves. Argentine on the other hand has strong allies, and is located far from the Middle East. For that reason, Palestine was an easy target.
Despite the reason, what Jews wanted was a land. They ended up getting not only a land, but also a group of people to play with and entertain themselves by torturing and terrorizing the original owners of this land. A fact which I think is very ironic, because it only shows how silent the world is regarding Palestine. Not only did people give away their land, they fled their homes, lost their children, and are being tortured and treated as a chess board to be invaded by Israeli kings and queens.
Perhaps the Israeli state feels obliged to defend what they believe is their own land and right, and that is why they have soldiers everywhere terrorizing men passing by and stopping people from having their basic supplies such as water and food and outside health care. The thing is, Israel is not fighting armed men, angry soldiers, riot rages, or threatening individuals. Israel is fighting every child on his way to school, every women going back home from the market, and every old man walking by his lambs.
Israel has proven to be a simple interpretation of what real terrorism is. Having an international community which neglects any war crime or child’s massacre done by Israelis is of great help. The silent international, and Arab world, which seems to be blinded and unable to witness the oppression going on in Palestine, not only did not stop these acts of terror, but it also contributed to the increase of these acts, as Israel has no higher power to be afraid of, instead it has higher powers that support it.
If I wanted to give up on the international and Arab community who are doing nothing about these acts, I cannot give up on the normal people who see such massacres but remain silent. It is very well understood that political leaders have private interests, and their interests are much more important than innocent people’s lives. But the bigger pain comes when a civilian of any nationality defends the Israeli state, because he/she as well have been blinded by their own media and are unable to witness the reality of these oppressors. Israeli soldiers have gone wild only because there’s no enough awareness for them to be stopped.
The price to be paid here is simply; people’s lives.
