whew a lot of reading here, and i'm not used to that. lol
anyway i see that this thread has taken a turn for the worst but don't be deterred! i will not even try to say i know as much as you guys do about the conflict but i will say that I do know there are people suffering really bad over there. anytime you put people into the situation the Palestinians are you are going to have some form of retaliation and of course the one's in power always call it terrorism which it is not! i know for a fact if the same things happen here in the USA most of would fight to the death than let someone else take over our home land!
i know i maybe simplifying things but if you put aside Hatred, racism, or double standards then you will see the lopsidedness of the conflict.
i live in NYC and have met Jews and Palestinians who are very peaceful and do hope for peace in that region however naive it may sound. i have also traveled to Egypt 2 years ago and despite the negative policies towards Muslims and Arabs from America the people there treated me and my American friends with the utmost respect and care! and not the fake kind just for tourist money but the average dude was cool, you know human.
NO ONE wants or likes to be oppressed but its always the ones who are the furthest removed from being oppressed who can never seem to understand it or the reactions it causes. maybe because they just believe the hate that was taught or passed on just because. also they can afford to have hateful ignorance because the situation never really affects them directly!
i don't have any real new solutions but i refuse to sit on the fence. i am not anti-Jew and do not hold any hate in my heart for them and I'm not Muslim. but i know what is happening to the Palestinian people is not right period! and since the US has had a large hand in creating the problem, then we should use our resources to solve this problem.
Peace to you Taloube and stay strong in your struggles!
