I think I'm falling in love with you.It wasnt very bright or was particularly one sided for the british to colonize and divide up the region at the end of ww 1, effectively establishing the state of israel after hundreds of years of ottoman rule, but that is the situation. The UN gave away land that was already occupied, similar to the destruction of native lands and people for the establishment of the american colonies and later nation. However, technology has progressed from arrows against rifles so the affected here use primitive rockets.
If the idea was to create a safe place for jews, they sure fucked up this one. There is nowhere else in the world that would have been more practical? Nowhere that might have resulted in less bloodshed over the years? Or was the entire point for the "holy" land to be controlled by a different group for the sake of historical religious power?
I mean seriously, talk about being bright. Stick a group of people that have historically been persecuted in a region which disrupts millions and millions of people which might do funny shit like fire rockets and blow up buses and public gatherings.
The random rocket shooting and suicide bombing are barbaric, but so are the conditions which led to them. How many palestinian homes have been levled to create new israeli settlements? When basic human necessities are withheld for so long, why does anyone expect anything less than barbarism in response?
Would a mixed society really result in religious persecution? Are there not synagogues in iran? Are there not jews in parliamentary positions in iran? Granted, Palestine is not iran, but iran has not been denied basic human necessities for years.
