I'm Very Bothered By the Gaza Situation
I don't know where best to post this but i just have to vent. This situation with Gaza really bothers me. In Israel they have right wing extremists. One of them assassinated Rabin cause he tried to make peace with Arafat. In the Muslim nations they have extremists, some killed Sadat for making peace with Israel. Now the extremists in Gaza were sending rockets into Southern Lebanon. It was wrong. But the response? To punish all the residents of Gaza like is happening, its mad. And it bothers me that more Westerners and Israelis dont see the madness. They blame Palestinians or Islam. They blame Hamas and then try to crush Hamas. When will the violence end? When will people of good will reach across to one another and try to make peace instead of slaughtering each other? When will we wake up to realize we are all sisters and brothers and when we respond to the extremists with extremism we become the hand of evil in this world?
