#Israel versus #Palestine: This Is Who Is Really At Fault
This post has been seen 8673 times.
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…
