I recall that way back in the 9-11 days, some, or maybe one (and the others who thought it, thought better about not speaking it), voiced that it must take a lot of courage to blow one’s self up, knowing the horrible death they would suffer.
That does take courage – a lot of courage. No matter how hardened you are, it takes a lot of courage, because when you’re pre-planning it, then do the ritual thing prior to the deed, getting ready for it, and everybody is supporting you (when they never did before), for the group, family, the cause, as the time draws near, it’s only you – you ending your life – a life that your family, or your group, or their political, or religious cause, says needs to be done – and they elected you to do it, even though you volunteered.
Oh, they make you think that it was your idea, and how so brave – protecting them, and the children, the generations to come. You be the sacrifice – so we all can live a better life. See you in heaven, son – daughter. Teenagers, thinking the only way they can change the world is to kill themselves so that others will live better.
Not unlike in the USA, parents being so proud of their sons and daughters who go off to war to kill or to be killed – for their parents, for the preservation of the next generation, for the family, the country, the community, the cause of freedom. After all, we can’t be free unless we’re courageous enough to kill or be killed – to slaughter or be slaughtered for our God-given right to be free.
I am recalling again, but now in the present day – not many days ago – people talking about how courageous Benjamin Netanyahu was for slaughtering the Palestinians – the Palestinians who had no way – no effective way – of defending themselves against the holocaust that he in conjunction with the USA administration and military, waged against them. But they’re trying to kill us, is what Netanyahu kept implying, as he slaughtered them – again – again – again…
It didn’t take courage for Netanyahu to bomb an entire country of people, who were actually born, bred – right there in Palestine – living there for centuries. Recall, it’s called Palestine, where the Palestinians grew. It’s not called Israel on any old map I’ve ever seen.
It doesn’t take courage for another president of the USA to bomb Iraq – again – … It never takes courage when you’re the bully. Think about it. You see a picture of the poor and wretched in Palestine – also some rich folks. But see the difference between Israel and Palestine and any sane person would have to conclude that there is one of the two enslaving the other.
It all comes down to ownership. Ownership of land, of resources, and they don’t give a flying fig about the degenerates living on the land they want to own.
The Jews for decades have been saying that they don’t want Gaza. Then why enslave the Gazan people – making sure that they never develop that land? It has nothing to do with rockets lobbed with no destination, nor teenagers throwing rocks at military tanks. Of course the Jews want Gaza’s prime real estate. A seaside resort. The Jews covet that tiny strip of land.
They don’t want peace – they want land – the more the better. It’s all about Hamas they say. It used to be all about Hezbollah. It’s always all about somebody not giving them what they want – land.
The fight to gain Jerusalem has nothing to do with a so-called Holy site – there’s nothing Holy about their agenda – they hate Jesus – want nothing to do with a Jew telling another Jew to treat the prostitutes well – to turn the other cheek at an insult – to give without expectation of a favor in return – it’s about land – and they’ll pull every rabbit out of the hat to make the world think they’re dying as a race, they’re dying due to persecution, they’re dying because they hate themselves – because the whole world hates them – and give us this God damned land – or else you’ll make us do something horrible to you.
That ‘something horrible’ is called in everybody else’s sane mind – absent theirs – a holocaust.
A holocaust for land.
