The War on Gaza & Interesting Comments

Reading some comments in English language blogs about the war in Gaza pisses me off. It clearly shows that truly some Westerns do not look at Arabs as equal human beings. Why? Read this:

Iranian propaganda

In response to a video made by Saudi blogger Raed AlSaeed and others asking the question Why the children of Gaza don’t deserve to be killed?“. Man, I cannot see any logic in involving Iran while watching a video showing the photos of dead children. It is the Israeli attack on Gaza which is going on for around 3 weeks so far and might go on for some more time with no real international intervention. In the contrary, the White House supports Israel for defending its people. Cannot Palestinians defend themselves? Sure not!. They are less of people and humans to the Israelis; this is what I can read from all the rubbish of the politicians around the world.

 

Another interesting comment is:

Why no Arab is condemning the photos of Palestinian kids dressed in kamikaze cloths?

Honestly, why should I!. 

Most of these kids saw their father, uncle, neighbor or another kid their age killed by the Israeli army, what do you expect him to do? Preach for peace and become the new Ghandi?. It won’t happen because he is a human being and through history we saw many people want to take revenge and who want to defend themselves physically rather than Ghandis.

 

Is revenge good?

I don’t think so. It keeps the heart full of anger and keeps the cycle of death going on. In the same time, I am saying such words sitting in my house in peace after having my morning coffee while my children are still sleeping in peace. What would I say if I was in Gaza today seeing the death toll go beyond 1000 people with more than 30% of the dead are children and women. Let us recall what Ehud Barak, the current defense minister of Israel said 10 years ago when asked what he would do had he been born Palestinian and Barak replied frankly  “I would join a terror organization.” . The reason? Defiantly not that he or anyone who was born in Palestine would love to die or cause pain to others, but as a response to all the horror Palestinians are going through for more than 60 years.

 

Israel and others think that wiping out Hamas will eliminate all voices that oppose the existence of Israel and who are against the inhuman practices and actions of Israel. In the contrary, as of what is going on in Gaza, many more minds and hearts around the world see the real Israel Palestinians know.

  1. Hi Ahmad
    Interesting!! but could you please be kind and tell me what ? Gaza is? Hamas? Arabs? all these big headache thing!!
    I used to hear these names b4 and I remember the sleepless nights I spent thinking of ppl there

    ppl who can’t watch prison break or lost
    ppl who can see all kinds of crimes happening to their families in front of them, who needs action american movies then!

    thinking about ppl who don’t have any patchi or pepsi or Mac
    those who spen days without a piece of bread
    who can’t feed their crying babies

    who have no chance to close their eyes in peace as we do at night

    I am so confused
    why are we so happy
    why are they so desperate
    but the truth is, that i am not happy with all what i have got
    they are not desperate either with all the hell they live in

    sorry
    I was here by mistake

  2. Samira,

    I don’t have words to say.. you said so much in your few lines.

    Maybe we live till the day all the mistakes are corrected.

  3. I wish if I were any thing but a human being
    If I were able to leave this planet to another one
    where is no human beings
    no killing
    no bitterness
    no lies
    i am feeling like crying
    why are we so hard on each other
    why can’t we just accept each other and live in peace?????

  4. Samira,
    Just because we are human beings!. We have the choice to be good or bad. Many choose to be bad and some others choose to be good.

  5. I hate people

  6. Dear Arab, please look into the history… after the WW2, the borders have been rewritten numerous times… Germany lost great part of land to Poland, the Czechoslovakia to CCCP (did we lost or caused the War<? no… we didn’t. Also, the numerous jewish population MOVED from the arab lands. Well, let the israel be, you can learn so much from them. … but I hardly think you will understand… arent you muslims superior to all others? with your peaceloving “so called” .. a Prophet?<!]

  7. Prauge,

    At first, you cannot compare what happened in Europe after WW2 and the case of Palestine. Why? Because in Europe the nations went through war and boarders did change however no one denied the existence of the other which was the case for so many years by Zionism and Israel. Palestinians lived in the land of Palestine for so long before Zionism decided to create the Jew state in their land.
    Additionally, I am not an expert in European culture to explain why Palestinians did react differently to them. Yet, I do understand the Palestinian cause and support the creation of the independent Palestinian state.

    For sure Arabs and Palestinians in particular have so many things to learn from Israel in aspects of unity, focus on goals, importance of education, creating alliances and be countries of law and order.

    I do not think Muslims are superior to all others. I do think some Muslims want to understand and be better human beings and Muslims as well.

    I personally do not like the so judgmental tone in your last statements against Muslims and the Prophet of Islam “Mohammed” who I believe he is the Prophet of God and I wish his real message will be well spread around the world so people will at least appreciate the values and religion he introduced from God to mankind.

  8. Thank you Ahmed explaining our just cause to the world.
    I wanna say to the person who mentioned lost and prison break that we (The Palestinians especially in Gaza) watch all the great series such as Heroes, House, Lost, P.B, scrubs, Friends, …etc.
    p.s: I wrote these words to show to everyone that we keep up with the great stuff and we are not ignorants.
