it would be funny, if it weren't so tragic, that jewish organisations take offence to the fact that a large section of europeans disapprove of the israeli actions in palestine while not much happens when a whole country is decimated by the world superpower and a whole one sixth of the world's population is branded as terrorists (or at least sympathisers for terrorists!)it makes it still more ironic that it is the same jewish people who are running that superpower and the media that does the branding.
hearing of justice, fairness and liberalism from the same section of people who do not bat an eyelid in throwing aside the basic rules of war not to talk of the basic human values, astounds one no end. leaving apart the controversy of the chicken or egg, one would at least expect some amount of restraint from the "champions of human rights across the globe" when dealing with a sovereign country and its populace. but no even that is too much to expect.
who said that life or world has an obligation to be fair?
but then why decry those who think that power flows from the barrel of a gun?
hasn't the time still come for homo warriens to metamorphose into homo peaceians?


The following comments are for "musing"

Claresbest, your comments are actually to the same effect as what i wrote. The point however is that there is a disjoint between these sentiments and the reality. Existence of Israel is no more the issue at all. The issue is violence. Just as no kind of arguments can justify the barbarism of Al-Qaeda what valid arguments can there be to justify the violence of Israeli state today? Does "regurgiation" by anti-jewish websites of an opinion ipso facto makes it invalid?
The following extract from reportedly a letter from of Israeli army reservists to their, may interest you:
"We will no longer corrupt the stamp of humanity in us through carrying out the missions of an occupation army - in the past we fought for a justified cause (but today) we have reached the boundary of oppressing another people,"
