just came across this telegraph article via google news (last time i go there) and it boils my blood. the sheer hypocracy. i am constantly getting branded an anti-semite just for thinking that britain and american government and media is clearly on the side of the jews. probably directly controlled by it.
theyre basically sayign that the palestinians who have been bombed and depossesed by the israeli (US/UK sponsored) war machine for teh last fifty years who are trying to make a stand against having their people and culture destroyed are the justification for the israeli aggression. which came first the chiken or the egg? well in this case, the palestinians were quite happy untill the western powers turfed then out of their own country and gave it to the jews. since then the greedy israelis have been pshign the palestinians further and further back, destroying their villages, killing their citizens and also any one who trys to help them (including british peace activists), undermining theri economy and generally fucking them over.
for ages the israelis wouldnt even talk to teh arabs, the palestinians dont even have their own army, and yet still teh israelis massacre the palesinians. then a few plucky palestinians who are sick of being pushed around sort themselves out some AK47’s, convince a few desperate people to blow themselves up in retaliation, to take the fight back to israel (nto because they want to, cos its the only option they have left) and these palestinians are branded as the evil ones. it takes the fucking biscuit it really does.
if i was in palestine having the people who stole my home and killed my family push me around, i’d be voting for the militant group and id being getting my AK and shooting me some fucking israeli troops.
i hope our governing leaders are all captured and tortured to death. i am ashamed to be british.

someone tell me im wrong. i know im wrong on some of it, cos i havent payed attention to the news in a while. but i defy people to sympathise with israel.
This is where recent US administrations have failed I think. Since Regan declared the War on Terror after the cold war ended. Isreal’s been using the same rhetoric to justify it’s policies helping it win the propaganda war which has contributed to a significant oportunity for peace in this region having been missed. If the US had imposed a fair and peaceful settlement because it’s clear those involved can’t reach one, I’m certain the world would be better off.
However this is where I thought the message I took from Spielberg’s Munich had the most weight in that it’s extremely difficult to build something positive through violent means.
Regardless it’s obviously very important to differentiate between the views and wants of the people, and the politicians who govern them!
