What ‘Israel and Palestine Taboo’?
Israel’s actions are discussed many times from all possible angles. Here’s a taboo: President Assad killed in the past year more of his people than all the Palestinians that were killed in the Israel-Palestine conflict since it began. Combined. No word from certain activists.
‘Repeat a lie enough times and it will be believed.’ Is Israel an apartheid state? No. Please see this six-minute video: http://bit.ly/ntYtQB.
‘Israel wants more land!’ Is that why Israel withdrew from most of the occupied territories without a peace treaty?
When my mother was asked overseas, ‘Why don’t you guys end this conflict?’ she answered: ‘Look, people think different things about Jews, but there is, however, a consensus that Jews are smart. And if we can’t solve this problem for so long, it must be a difficult problem to solve.’ This was 20 years ago and is still true today.
Why don’t Israeli expats in the shire deal more with this conflict? I can’t speak on behalf of others but Israelis live with this conflict from birth. I didn’t come here to continue the fight. I came here to live in peace.
