A Dream Dawning. Winding staircases around dreams of moons and star gazers gone to sleep beneath a starless sky, hoping that sleep itself might turn a blanket into a jewel studded universal wonder, that we all hope someday will wind it’s way around our lives making us for once the center of something other than somebody else’s rainbow. When alas, we are both struck and awed by the blanket dropping to reveal nothing more than grains of sand glittering between the wool just pulled down over our eyes. Did we really make it unscathed? Is this a dream of the morning? Or is it the dawn everybody dreams of?
Installing military bases in foreign countries is occupation.
Re: Palis: Sounds like Paris. Implies something royal, like a palace. Palestine and Israel. The Jews rejected Ispal, so now they get placed on the other end, instead of at the beginning. Each get four letters and share the fifth: ‘P’ = power. If you want me to pursue this further I will, and you know who I’m talking to. Though I think it’s best that we don’t. All right you asked for it. I know you’re going to point out that Palestine has more letters, which puts you at a disadvantage. Though Israel minus the R is contained in Palestine, and Palestine is contained in Israel minus the PETN. ‘E’ is repeated. ‘I’ comes before ‘P’ so that should even out the extra letters in Palestine. Okay, so 9 plus 6 equals 15, an odd number, but that’s if you count ‘E’ twice. If you leave it out, that makes equal for both with nothing to share. Okay count it twice. Then, that’s 7 for each of you with the 15th shared. That’s enough!! This little game of yours is over.
Face it, conditions on the ground are not your obstacle to resolution. The obsessive compulsive component of your personalities is all that stops you. The world is going to think you all insane with all this silliness. For years the right of return was the last problem under consideration. We make it the first. Times have changed. Last comes first. Just as you couldn’t form a new government in Germany while the Jews remained in concentration camps around Europe, you can’t form a new Palestinian/Israeli State while Palestinians remain in Camp Gaza and Camp West Bank. The multitude of Palestinians incarcerated in concentration camps in Gaza and the West Bank are to be released, not in ten or twenty years, but NOW.
You were rescued from concentration camps. Now it’s time to dismantle your own. It’s disgusting how you repeated your own history by making nobody forget, lest it happen again, all the while you were doing it. You did it. Face it. Now change it before a group of nations similar to those who freed you, decide to free the enslaved Palestinians.
Now. Jerusalem becomes a state, like Vatican City, governed by representatives from all groups, somewhat like the United Nations. It will become an International gathering place. Everything outside of Jerusalem will exist as one state, one nation called Palis. All peoples will work together for a common goal of peace and prosperity for all. All religions and ethnic groups will be respected and honored, as Palis becomes an example to the rest of the world, a blueprint for integration and positive, prosperous change–a melting pot that turns away no one.
I can see Palis as the capital of the United Middle East. What a sight! Look what they’re doing in Dubais on a piece of land the size of Rhode Island.
The Jews were rejected, the Palestinians rejected. You do have something in common. Put the brakes on the repetitive chatter in your minds my little Palis babies, and get your little buzz butts busy planning this spectacular Oasis. “You can do it. I know you can.” What? You can’t change the name? Since when, my little Maccabees?
It’s time for the Maccabees to come out of the closet. Look Maccabees up in the bible if you don’t know what it means. They occupy a whole section. There’s a reason why Italian Jews look different from English Jews, Indian Jews, African Jews and Danish Jews. It’s not only because they were born in their respective countries, it’s because they really are part Italian, English, Indian, African and Danish.
Most of us don’t know that at some point along the way we have some Jew in us. Sorry to burst your pure race minority bubble scam, but it’s time to drop that poor us, tiny little group of persecuted people, sympathy card that you use as your calling card in the pursuit of all you covet.
I don’t have to say I’m proud to be a woman. That declaration somehow reduces men in my description of how I feel about myself. I don’t have to say I’m proud to be black, when my skin color is out of my control. I don’t have to say I’m proud to be Lithuanian because they’re peacemakers. A lot of Lithuanians aren’t. Just don’t be ashamed of your heritage. Yeah, I’m part Jew. I figure that if I’m English, Irish, Scottish, and maybe Welch, then I’m part Jew. So what. I’m also part Dutch, Lithuanian, Canadian, and American Indian (according to my grandmother) and sometimes I look Arab. That’s probably from the Jew in me. Some people think I’m black in dimmed lighting. Others think I’m Asian, and still others think I’m Italian, Russian, Swedish (when I bleach my hair blonde) and even a man (because of my short hair). So what! Jump out of that self-imposed closet and simply be you! Please.
There are a whole lot more of you than you or anybody else has dared to expose. You’re protected. Though you’re not protected if you do bad. Adopting the five principles would be a smart choice as you come out of your Maccabee selves. That goes for everybody, and don’t forget the Arab you have in you.
To the Arabs, don’t forget the Jew you have in you. See, you already are a melting pot. Don’t think I haven’t seen Arab Irish, Arab Russian and Arab everything else. There is no such thing as a pure race. Even in the most remote regions of Africa, they are not purely African, not purely black.
Did I mention the role the Jews played in the slave trade throughout the world? Oh right, you beat me to it. Everybody was doing it, so that’s your excuse. Did you fail to mention that you were in Africa buying slaves for America? Blacks in America think anybody white is Jew. Jews want everybody to think they’re in the white race when it suits them. Then when it doesn’t, they’re a separate race above all other races. That all societies have done it, still makes it wrong. What’s important now is for all societies who continue to do it to stop. You all know who you are. Egypt offered prostitutes from Egypt for the American troops during the Gulf War.
