A lesson in hatred

child

AMERICAN journalist Elizabeth Rubin discovered the true nature of hate when she spent two days with a Palestinian family in a West Bank refugee camp.
She interviewed a 13-year-old girl whose father had been killed by Israeli bombs.
The girl, who never smiled, told Rubin that her father wanted her to be a doctor. She said she would prefer to study nuclear physics so she could blow up her enemies.
Another girl at the camp, even younger, clutched a thick handful of what looked liked baseball or football cards. Rubin looked more closely and discovered they were photos not of sports stars but Palestinian suicide bombers.
The there’s a revealing short film shot at an Israeli army museum, that features a range of kids including one who says, “I picture a dead Arab and that makes me happy”.
These things are common when barbarism and hate are taught at a young age.
No wonder history has a tendency to repeat itself.

        Are you gainsaying god’s right to ‘Move in mysterious ways’?

        But talk’s cheap. Your mantra. (“there is wrong on both sides.”) can equally (and equally pointlessly) be applied to ‘justify’ the so-called ‘holocaust’.
        Remember there was a jewish resistance which killed germans when they could.
        Heres a challenge to you:- differentiate the rationalisation and slaughter in the Warsaw ghetto ~ in ANY significant way ~ from the rationalisation and slaughter regularly conducted in the Gaza ghetto?

        ….and no doubt Geurnica, Rotterdam, Dresden, (and let’s not forget Hiroshima) etc. etc. all got what they deserved, since, naturally, “there was wrong on both sides”.

        How dare you accuse anyone else of copping out!

        But there’s no need to ‘feel sorry’; I get much more of what you might call love ~ except for your ‘conventional’ restrictions ~ than you probably do…or could even imagine. And it’s usually not as a sort of reward handed to me by some outside agency as part of a ‘deal’. It just sort of self-generates as a result of me being what I am and doing what I can’t not do…..and it’s permanent, accumulatively.

        The last few days provided just that on several levels; and I’m weary as, with a much-lightened wallet……. but an even more-lightened ‘heart’.

      • Bryan,
        I know vaguely what you are trying to say, but your sentence as a common truism repeated within Christianity, doesnt make sense either grammatically or within the meaning of the words. If I utilize the name Jesus whenever I intend my utterance to mean the word Love, then I’ll be talking nonsense. Similarly, if I substitute the word Love when I’m meaning to refer to Jesus, it will similarly be impossible to understand.

        “Jesus is love”.

        Please translate it into a phrase that will pass scrutiny. As it is, the sentence is just clumsy Christian jargon.

    • The Two State Solution seems unworkable. Many commentators such as MJ Rosenberg and Robert Grenier have suggested that the only alternative solution is the “one state bi-national solution” . Article from 2010.

      Rosenberg writes:

      “The alternative, looming just beyond the horizon, is the so-called one state – or binational – solution in which Israelis and Palestinians share all the land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. How can it be more obvious?”.

      Grenier’s pessimism in achieving the two state solution is succinctly expressed as follows:

      “That the Israelis and Palestinians could reach agreement on a comprehensive two-state settlement under the current circumstances is hard to imagine. That they could actually implement such an agreement is impossible.”

      Grenier’s only alternative is also the one-state bi-national solution as he continues:

      “The fact of the matter, however, is that the idea of a two-state solution in Palestine is finished. Israeli settlements in the West Bank and their attendant infrastructure have made a viable and independent Palestinian state impossible. The settlements, moreover, cannot be undone. Their existence obviates the need for formal Israeli annexation: The de-facto annexation of the West Bank has already taken place. The only remaining solution is a single, unified, bi-national state.”

      There is however another far more practical and readily achievable alternative solution to that suggested by Rosenberg and Grenier.

      That solution involves the division of sovereignty of the West Bank between Israel and Jordan.

      Separation of Arabs and Jews in Palestine – as far as is possible – has been the policy that has guided international diplomacy in the region since 1920. It has been sponsored by the League of Nations, the United Nations and several Commissions of Inquiry. It remains the policy currently favoured and supported by America, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations.

      Although Jordan and Israel have fought several wars following the War of Independence in 1948 they have enjoyed a signed and sealed peace treaty between their respective states since 1994 – which has withstood many political and diplomatic pressures that could have heralded its demise.

      Jordan indeed fits the Hilary Clinton mould of Israel “living peacefully with a neighbor who has the same aspirations for normal life.”

      Presently stuck between their two respective States is the West Bank with a population of 2 million Arabs and 500000 Jews – whose territorial sovereignty remains undetermined.

      • From the same 2010 article

        “Division of that sovereignty between Israel and Jordan resonates as a just and fair solution for the following reasons:

        It will restore Jordanian governance to the major part of the West Bank as existed from 1950 up to its loss to Israel in the Six Day War in 1967.
        It will bring the overwhelming majority of its 2 million West Bank Arabs under Jordanian protection, free them from Israeli control and restore the freedom of movement and citizenship rights enjoyed by them between 1948 – 1967
        Not one Jew or Arab will have to leave his present home or business in the West Bank
        Issues presently seen as contentious such as water, refugees and Jerusalem have already been identified and proposed solutions flagged in the 1994 Treaty.
        Drawing the new international boundary between Israel and Jordan to end sovereignty claims by Jews and Arabs in the West Bank should be capable of being achieved within three months.
        There will be a dramatic and immediate change in the current status quo which most agree is dangerous and untenable
        Jordan is the only Arab partner that can honour and enforce any agreement on the West Bank that Israel is prepared to sign.
        It will finalize the allocation of sovereignty of former Palestine between the two successor States to the Mandate for Palestine.

        Jordan cannot be allowed to simply reject such an alternative out of hand and seek to walk away from the looming conflict that must inevitably fill the void after the collapse of the two-state solution.

        Jordan has been part of the problem surrounding the issue of sovereignty in the West Bank since 1920. It now is time for Jordan to step up to the plate and take responsibility for being part of the solution in 2010.”

      • There’s an even better option, Strewth ~ as I tried to point out in a couple of banned posts.

        While it’s obvious “The Two State Solution seems unworkable.”, an “alternative solution is the “one state bi-national solution” ” is equally unworkable.

        ANYWHERE you create divisions you create ~ definitively ~ teams, rivalry.*
        Next thing required will be official (and officially-enforced) bi-cultural divisions, since jews and palestinians have different different tribal backgrounds/’cultures’. And ‘multi-culturalism’ has NEVER succeeded, anywhere, anytime.
        The only real (if possible) alternative is to do away ~ by whatever means are necessary ~ ANY such divisions. The israelis wouldn’t wear that for all the obvious reasons (why compromise when you have overwhelming fire-power?)
        Integration (if it were possible) would mean the end of judaism: the success of the Final Solution without a shot being fired.
        It’s what israel and international jewry fears more than the (inevitable) acquisition of small nukes by groups like hamas. Two or three suitcase-nukes strategically placed would render the whole region uninhabitable for 1000 years.
        That just means the fight will continue in the streets of NY, Melbourne, Cairo, ……….and where-ever exclusive/racist ~ apartheid in any terms ~ tribalism is allowed to exist.

        …….And no doubt “there will be wrong on both sides.” ~ as irrelevantly as ever.
        Then what??
        Yet another ‘Balfour Declaration’??

        *eg… have a look at all the terror, murder and misery caused by all the well-meaning but stupid ‘imposed’ apartheid ‘solutions’ of just recent times- even just starting with all the map re-aligning after WWI: including about 20 variations AND re-variations in that middle-eastern area, including the creation of countries where non had ever existed before:
        Korea/Vietnam/Germany/ Cuba/ the Cold-War ‘Blocs’ The Former Yugoslavia, etc etc etc..
        And it was that very sort of ‘re-mapping’ that directly brought on WWI, which directly sponsored WWII.

      • By JoAnne Viviano The Columbus Dispatch • Friday July 18, 2014 7:54 AM

        Alka Ahuja and her husband, Rajiv, had driven by the Noor Islamic Cultural Center in Hilliard many times, often wondering what went on inside the walls of the massive structure.

        This week, they found out.

        The Hilliard couple, Hindus originally from India, attended the center’s Experiencing Ramadan event on Wednesday. The interfaith gathering introduced non-Muslims to Islam and Ramadan, a 30-day period of reflection during which Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset.

        “We felt there was so much hunger and demand on people’s part to learn about religious diversity as well as cultural diversity,” said Imran Malik, chairman of the board of the American Islamic Waqf, which oversees the center. “The more we know about each other, the safer, more-secure communities we can build together.”

        Participants in the event received a brief overview of Islam, toured the center and watched evening prayers. They then were treated to a daily fast-breaking meal, also called an iftar, dining on dates, meats, rice, hummus, salad and baklava.

        Youngsters who attend the mosque offered their own perspectives, telling the guests some of the foods used to break the fast in areas such as Somalia, Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia and Pakistan. The children spoke of family time, gathering at the mosque for late prayers, meals and fun, and waking before sunrise to eat.

        One boy said the early meal is his favorite part of Ramadan, and his favorite food is scrambled eggs and pancakes.

        “Thank God that IHOP’s open at 3 a.m.,” he quipped to laughter.

        Among the guests was Collette Tucker of Dublin, who said she recently realized that she was taking her questions about Islam to her 11-year-old daughter, whose best friend is Muslim.

        “I’d never experienced anything Muslim,” said Tucker, who attended with daughter Cameron and her 13-year-old son, Calvin. “I thought it was awesome. I wish I hadn’t waited so long.”

        Malik said the center used to host a community meal annually but hadn’t in recent years because the dates of Ramadan are based on a lunar calendar and sunset times were late. The idea was reignited by the Safe Alliance of Interfaith Leaders, a group that seeks to increase cross-faith understanding in the Hilliard and Dublin areas.

        More than 300 people responded to the invitation from Noor, where leaders are considering other ways to host interfaith gatherings throughout the year.

        Christina Butler, president of the Interfaith Association of Central Ohio, said such events foster understanding.

        “They bring a diverse group of people together for an evening of talking and sharing and certainly eating,” she said. “So it’s just another time to be with each other as human beings in a joyful atmosphere of celebration and sharing and learning about one another.”

        Much like periods of fasting in Christian and Jewish traditions, Ramadan allows participants to experience how the needy might feel when they must live without food, water, shelter and clothing, Malik said. The observance ends with the Eid al-Fitr holiday, expected this year at sundown on July 28.

        “The idea is you practice this on your own self for 30 days in a state of worship and individual form, and then take it to the next level and build the outreach, build the servicing of the community,” he said. “That is the actual essence of Ramadan.”

        The Ahujas said they were intrigued enough by the event that they will consider returning to the center for an Islam 101 course.

        “I didn’t know anything,” said Mrs. Ahuja, who was invited by a Muslim friend. “I think people need to know more about each other’s religions.”

        But WHY do you know she’s indian…or paki or timbuktu-an. (Not ‘how’ but ‘why’?, if you get my drift.)
        My doctor is a jovial, competent and entirely oz-integrated ex-paki (not very long ago), and race is never an issue, nor hardly ever mentioned; he has no ‘sensibilities’ and neither do I. (Let alone any PC-ness.)

        The point is that in a genuinely-integrated relationship pussy-footing around or ‘respecting’ other nationalities/races/whatever shouldn’t even come to mind. If nothing else it creates unnecessary divisions.

        But sometimes they do. He’s one of those very dark-skinned pakis and was slim and trim when I first met him. More recently he’s piled on much weight (all the while admonishing me for being overweight!) so recently I told that he was getting so fat that his skin was getting lighter from being stretched so much.
        Our laughter was so loud that a nurse hurried in to make sure all was well, and the entire waiting-room sat there startled.

        On a person-to-person basis there’s hardly ever a ’cause’ for conflict.
        It’s when ethnicity/nationalism/religion and other divisions (ALL of them artificial and virtually NONE of them significant) are introduced (even with good intent) that the shit flies.

And if THEY take offense at their own guilt that’s their problem.

        But what do we get from those would-be christians? ‘How terrible! But there IS wrong on both sides.’
        You’re comparing a black eye with Crimes Against Humanity, War Crimes and mass-murder. Real christians would be out in the streets in their millions, protesting from the pulpits and demanding that the israeli war-machine be stopped in its tracks ~ by whatever means necessary ….and the perpetrators arrested, tried and executed. Saddam and Milosovich and binLaden, etc. committed nowhere near the atrocities that Netanyahu and his gang has…time and again.

        I’ll quote one of your favourites:- “The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is that Good Men Do Nothing”.

    Legal note: Article 54 of the 1977 Protocol to the 1949 Geneva Conventions, which prohibits the”starvation of civilians as a method of warfare”, states:

    “It is prohibited to attack, destroy, remove or render useless objects indispensable to the survival of the civilian population, such as foodstuffs, agricultural areas for the production of foodstuffs, crops, livestock, drinking water installations and supplies and irrigation works, for the specific purpose of denying them for their sustenance value to the civilian population or to the adverse Party, whatever the motive, whether in order to starve out civilians, to cause them to move away, or for any other motive.”

  4. Lets look at it from another angle !
    Humans spread out over the planet .
    And those locations put up challenges to those in those places .
    Some of those groups where in isolation for tens of thousands of years.
    Some had a contact with groups but kept within their territory a static tribe with similar static tribes around them .
    And then the rest where subjected to ongoing war s of increasing intensity and efficiency .

    Now with such different life,s over such a long time you would expect major changes between humans .
    And the group that was isolated the longest time should show the greater difference .
    Of course the environment would determine physical change .
    But mentally you can take any person and place them anywhere and their offspring will be at home in that location and adapt into that society .
    Even if their for bare where in isolation for thirty thousand years they will fit right in .
    Ergo they have not progressed thirty thousand years in being born there in a so called modern world
    The so called modern man has not changed “MENTALLY ” in thirty thousand years .
    Burke and Wills died within sight of people they “BELIEVED ” where savages.
    In fact they where just morons with the belief they knew the truth.

  5. I saw this clip recently of children being taught to hate Jews.

    If they are taught this from young, the conflict is never going to end.
