Hope. I am all about Hope. And peace. Would love it!<quoted text>It has turned out to be an exquisite waste of time. In the beginning there was a sense, if not a promise of hope that when the sides sit down they will be able to hammer out a lasting peace built on mutual respect.
Boy was I wrong about that one. No matter how much we change, THAT seems to remain the same. I'm ready to say that my idea of settling the Arab-Israeli conflict via the internet and Call of Duty has as much if not more merit than Oslo. No real estate changes hands but all the violent tension is released and at the end of a day of warfare my way, everyone goes home for a meal, some rest, and are off to school or work in the morning. Israeli kids get to grow up to be doctors and lawyers and Arab kids get to grow up to be matzoh.
I think he wishes this thread would die because he hates that we have become friends.
But here's the central message I've tried to get across here, even before I could even speak English well enough to articulate it somewhat coherently: PEACE/HOPE CANNOT BE BASED ON LIES, HATRED, SERIAL FALSIFICATION, INTRANSIGENCE & TERROR.
"Men" like Arafat, Abbas -- nevermind Sheik Yassins of this world -- are NOT peace-makers. I doubt they are even human.
If there was some hope for true, real PEACE 20 years ago -- what with PLO's creator/patron Soviet Union collapsing and American/Israeli/Western/Free Way of Life seemingly prevailing forever..... well, after the new generation of Pali-kids has been raised on the most vile, genocidal propaganda that essentially considers Jews to be prophet-killing cockroach-vampires who cause all worldly ills & wars, and who therefore must be exterminated -- or at the very least thown into the sea!
Hell, even the Sinai bedouin, who just 10-15 years ago, which is extremely short period of time, historically speaking... whereas those bedouin were pretty moderate if not secular/friendly ----> have now become raging al-Qaeda allies!
Where the heck are you gonna get Martin Luther King or Nelson Mandela now? And I tell you, even Ghandi would throw up his hand if he had to deal with (radical) Islam leaders. I get a huge LOL'erskate when I hear Irish confounded by lack of progress is peace process in M.E.... Hamas/Sunni Islam to IRA/Catholicism is what lightening is to lightening bug (as a certain American writer would put it) They just have NO idea who they're dealing with here, LOL!
As the Great Ize of Conneticut might have said "Before you can lead the life you want, you must first LEAVE the life that you DON'T want".
Before you can have TRUE peace, justice, freedom... you at least MUST reject the (massive oil-funded) Muslim-Marxist Matrix, its unbelievable lies, arrogance and all-encompassing hatred & envy!
Start with telling the truth about "Palestine", IRD. And go from there. There is NO alternative.
