Part 1. A little background
It is hard not to hate Israel. Here is a little country that just won’t go away. And it’s got an army of willing soldiers – no burnt out prison drop outs recruits – the IDF loves Israel. They know how to do their jobs and more than that – they know why they are doing them. Sitting on a piece of spiritually important land that has been under siege since time immemorial – they cover their borders and do what they must to protect their country.
Israel’s larger problem – one of many – is that it is full of Jews. Nobody likes Jews – a case in point was the nastiness in WW2 that Hitler didn’t solve, to his regret. But Hitler’s idea had a huge family tree and Jew hating, Jew-berating and Jew-baiting has been an historical pastime since easily 93 CE. Well a game that can last that long isn’t gonna disappear quickly.
Israel became Israel a long time ago and before other newer religions co-opted the area – Jews held the stewardship of Israel and they held it seriously. The West Wall of the Temple – in size alone – is an indication of just what the Israelis were able to create a long time ago. Smitten, smited, smote – they soldiered on moving like a tribe of outcasts throughout their Diaspora. In Arab lands they became “dhimmies”. “Dhimmies can never be citizens but they do have to pay and they pay and pay and pay at the whim of whomever is in charge. The do NOT have equal rights. They serve a purpose because they know how to work and take care of their own. The image of a Jewish dhimmi laying around sucking on a hookah, out of work, may have happened – but I haven’t found any reference to it. SO the fact they contribute – despite Draconian code and laws – is just another reason to hate them. Fact is that Judaism follows so many holy observances that it’s hard to have time to work and pray and plot.
Israel is a productive country. What? Jews aren’t farmers or factory workers. It has scientific and manufacturing sectors, garment trades, agriculture and all the talents the Diaspora brought together in 1948 (and of course before). And Jews are a creative and talented people. In the 101 year history of Alfred Nobel’s Prize – 180 of the winners have been Jews – from various countries – but Jews. People hate that. For the record nine Muslims have won the Nobel Prize; five of which have been for Peace*. (*There is an interesting argument about this which is too long to discuss here.) Mostly they figure some huge Jewish conspiracy rigged it all and so the prizes aren’t all that important. But ask someone casually if they were to win the Nobel Prize for anything – how would they feel? The answer is usually the same. The time for the International Zionist New World Order speech never goes away but you all know what it is.
I won’t bore you.
Part 2 A little foreground.
And now it comes to Gaza. Gaza is a political and ideological and religious mess. There are so many sanctions related to it that I would never get them all in order and/or I would bore you to tears. Let’s just say that Israel relinquished the Gaza Strip by accord and let it go. When a terror group (Hamas) won the elections in Gaza – the surrounding countries seemed to have a problem with that, including Israel. Israel built a big wall. Not very neighborly but ghetto mentality creates ghetto ingenuity. Gazans went south to their brother in faith and purpose – Egypt – Egypt built a wall. Draw your own conclusions.
Into the picture comes the Guerilla Flotillas. “Humanitarian” ships that have been offered docking and offloading in two countries – Egypt and Israel. The offering countries also agreed to get the goods to Gaza right away. Cyprus refused to allow to dock. How rude. I can see not trusting Israel – but Egypt. What’s the problem? Israel told the ships not to approach an embargoed Gaza. The Guerilla Flotillas did it anyway. Israel went to stop them and all hell broke loose. People were shot, people were injured and people are mad. Now some idiot Irish ship is chugging to where it doesn’t belong to try the same thing. Turkey (who thinks someone recently died and put them in charge) has issued stern warnings to “dem Jews”.
Part 3 My own observation
In my opinion there is not a two state resolution – a simple look at the map of the area will show a first grader you cannot accept a country in pieces in another country you hate. Illogical, a waste of effort, time and money. Humanitarian aid is abundantly available from dozens on non-allied agencies – their books are clean and show no ties to Jihadis. (Oops – forgot Jihad – the engine that drives all this).
The received wisdom is that Gaza is a peace seeking, failed and barren state under siege with clean hands. This happened because Israel set it free and then Hamas took over. I would say it speaks more to the ability of Hamas to oversee a country than it does Israel letting it go. From the pix I have seen recently Gaza has a lot of food, people drinking coffee at cafes and plenty of potatoes. Smart Jews probably photo shopped them – but they look real to me.
So I can see why so many people hate Israel. And those crafty, clever, money making, smart productive Jews. What I cannot see is the rationale. Just as the QED in the Guerilla Flotillas. They sound more like a stupid, provocative act designed to force Israel’s hand and bring in things other than food and medicine. After the last 9 years – Why is this so hard for people to imagine. Or shall I dust off my burqua?
