#Israel versus #Palestine: This Is Who Is Really At Fault

israel_and_palestine_hetalia_by_jhucartoons-d4b8x70We have been told from an early age that there are always two sides to a story. The good side and the bad side. From the TV screen to the Radio waves we are inundated with this belief.

In Hollywood for instance, there is always a good guy and bad guy. The bad guy is normally ugly, bald or from Eastern Europe likely Russia (aka Rocky IV) or Germany (aka Inglorious Bastards). The good guy on the other hand is normally handsome, full headed, and White Male American … sometimes African America if the budget allows.

The good and bad complex become a subconscious part of our life, so when we are hit with a conflict, with stories, we almost instantly pick a size. What we don’t realize is that that side we have picked is a result of the media and our surroundings making decisions for us. Because we are not really picking the side ourselves but rather past experience, blood relations and the media pick it for us.

That’s why our brothers girlfriend or sisters boyfriend is always the one at fault and that’s why I dare say that the Arab nations in conflicts are mostly bad…always evil to those living in the West. That’s the subconscious reality that we are not even aware of. One that is created by Hollywood.

So when the conflict starts we automatically calibrate to find out why Gaza is at fault…the Arabs like the Eastern Europeans are after-all supposed to be evil.

But not so fast, if the middle east had a Hollywood aka Mollywood, the exact situation will happen. Arabs will be the heroes, the good side…while the Jews and the Americans will be evil. But sadly there is no Mollywood. But there is word-of-mouth-hood and in this word-of-mouth-hood the West and Jews are made out to be the bad guys.

But what does all this mean to you? Yes you reading this, looking for a side to pick!

Here is the reality, there is no good or bad side. Not America, Not Israel, Not Russia, Not Gaza, Not Iraq and Not even Switzerland the supposed most peaceful nation in the world that houses most of African stolen money…none of them are good or evil. Instead everyone is driven by their own selfish interests…this is not Hollywood but reality.

The sooner you realize that … the better.

The better because you can better understand the Israel/Gaza conflict. You can analyze the situation without bias because you are now free of the Hollywood of there must be good side bull shit . If you realize that, then you also realize there is a possibility that this could actually be happening…

That Hamas actually wants to destroy Israel and are likely deliberately using children to harbor sympathy from the outside world while carrying out their ulterior goals and that simultaneously Israel might be using the Hamas largely ineffective rocket attacks as an opportunity to justify a massive exaggerated attack on Gaza in a bid to ensure that that region remains in poverty so that Hamas can never grow strong enough to really threaten Israel.

Both scenarios as evil as they are … are both simultaneously possible. If we can understand this and stop searching for a Hollywood good and bad side then we would be able to understand, debate and discuss world issues much better and with an open mind.

Israel versus Palestine, who is at fault? We are…

    Its a pleasure to know that people that think like you do and go out of their way to enlighten the rest of the world still exist.. Keep it up bro..

  3. The battle is an endless cycle of centuries old hate, violence, accusations and counter-accusations. GOD help us all.

    I still think Hamas is more evil. Using their people as human Shields and restricting them to red zones. Hamas should stop firing the rockets and digging underground tunnels.

  5. This is the scary truth about all these world conflicts Israel-Palestine, russia-ukraine-us. Its only when we look objectively at both/all side’s stories, that we can be in a position to give an opinion.

    But thats not going to happen fir the next 3 decades as everyone needs to push their own propaganda. So everyone should create their own Hollywood or religious sect and push till they get enough allies for
    their propaganda. Or alternatively, become soo strong militarywise that no one dares oppose u

  7. These people(Israel and Pakistan) seem to me like they have been abandoned by the world to take care of their problems while their allies probably supply them with weapons. After reading the book “Son Of Hamas” by Mosab Hassan Yousef, one would be forced to think that Hamas is at fault. To me, there is more to this war than “fighting for who controls a/some particular region” as we are made to believe.

    Wonderful way of thinking. I like your style. It’s just that you didn’t feed us with enough Info to be able to know who is evil and good between Hamas and Israel? We need to know for example the genesis of the conflicts, what Hamas is using to destroy Israel, how is Hamas using civilian to gain world sympathy? We also need to know the justification of blockage of Gaza by Israel for decades. We also need to be informed on the Israeli conditions before uplifting the blockade. We also need to know who between Hamas and Israel is violating international rules of war? Until then all or most of our judgment will be driving by sentiments.

  9. Hmm lols with the extremists accumulated around the whole world coming from a particular religion????. Oh believe me it would take more than words, to convince people that there isn’t a good side and a bad side.

    I read “Son of Hamas” and like the previous comment said, it is really difficult not to pick sides after reading that book considering the author . I came to a conclusion a long time ago that there’s no good-bad side to any situation… it is just what it is. But like you said, we are made to believe from a very young (and impressionable) age that there’s a true and false side to every argument (which is sometimes true).
