A sad world...

It seems Israel is looking to do a clean sweep. The old saying is, if you want a job done right you have to do it yourself. So much for the value of the UN and other peace keeping agencies. Watch now how the U.S. Security Council springs into action to sanction Israel… Erm… Yeah Right!!!

Watch how the U.N. will attempt to pass a meaningless resolution condemning Israel for the invasion of the state of Palestine. After all, the Hamas government was duly elected by western democratic elections, weren't they? These events will unfold just as sure as the sun will be rising in the east tomorrow morning. More than likely it will lead to a confrontation with Syria that will draw Russia back into aligning with Syria and Iran. Just a gut feel that is… De ja vue all over again? Or will Russia align with the West this time to put an end to terrorism? Observe events in Chechnya closely and alliances with China and North Korea! The world has become one bloody dangerous place in an awful hurry. Does anyone still doubt that the world is at war aside from the New York Times??

It was Israel's reinvasion of Gaza and nothing previous that tipped you off that it's a sad world, eh....

The difficulty with resolutions and sanctions from outside bodies is that they are simplistic and impotent. The US government constantly fails to recognise the precarious situation the Palestinians are in - occupied, starving, humiliated, stripped of dignity and independence.

UN resolutions constantly fail to recognise the precarious situation of the Israelis - with superior military power but under constant threat of violence and warfare (even before the occupation of Gaza and Transjordan) ie. UN's failure to condemn suicide bombings within Israel.

While it's abundantly clear that that Israel, as the occupier, has the moral obligation to initiate and ensure withdrawal from the Occupied Territories, the complexity lies in the fact that they are to negotiate this with an elected body that does not recognise their existence.

I too condemn this latest military action, another in a series of humiliations they deal to the Palestinians to reaffirm that they are indeed the ones in charge. However, what kind of action should they take to ensure that there isn't an Iraqi insurgency-style wave of kidnappings all over Israel (the conscripted soldier whose kidnapping they are using as an excuse was in the pre-1967 area) when Palestine is governed by Hamas? The situation is far more compax that most of the vocal critics on either side are willing to admit.

Hamas are not helping themselves by invading Israel, which is what they did, technically. Sadly, they have given Israel a chance to go in, which they have obviously done in their normal style, ignoring the rules of engagement and doing their favourite collective punishment by knocking out the electricity supplies- they will break the country piece by piece and, while their actions are legally wrong, few will criticise them- even among the Arab world, criticism has been muted because one of the idiots going down the tunnel was Hamas armed wing

I am afraid that Hamas have a lot to learn if they want to be treated as a government- look at the difficulties IRA/Sinn Fein have got into and they had nothing like the trouble. One toe over the border is an act of war- if it isn't an act of war, then you aren't a government. Unfortunately, Israel can say that it is an act of war and they still aren't a government, but they're going to bomb anyway. Do you think they give a toss? - another excuse for carnage…

It's slipping out of any sense of control- a couple of days after Abu Masen agrees on talks with Israel, this kicks off…

And Syria are getting dragged in. Palestine is heading almost certainly for civil war, and the winner of that will be????

Tel Aviv? I’m afraid so…

Grey I am not sure what really tipped me off, there are so many things actually, and this is just one of these things… and I am not even sure that I want this blog to become a political one… But as I have said it in the blog’s presentation: “This is a place where thoughts are aired unreservedly, free from any linguistic or cultural barriers.” Well... once and then you’ll also see some of my political thoughts sprouting up…
Thank you very much for you comment!

thanks for visiting and your comment.
Haloscan resets quite often so when you try to comment and within 3 seconds nothing happens click a few more times.

It has a lot of options that is why I use it. Usually after two to three clicks about five seconds you get through if you retry.

Nice to see some lively debate here. I'm also pessimistic about a possible solution to the Palestine-Israel conflict. It's far beyond a clash of religion/ideology or struggle for national idenity; it's moved into the territory of blood feud, and we all know how difficult that is to end (thanks for the tip, Albania). Very sad, indeed.

Thanks for dropping in on my blog - I promise that I wasn't fishing for comments when I wrote my thoughts about Japanese fashion, though! In response to your question, it is a big no-no to sport that kind of style if you work at a company. Black suits and high heels are pretty much de rigueur in the corporate workplace. However, the number of part-time workers and NEETs (generally young people not in employment or education) are increasing, and they kind of hang about and wear whatever they want, i suppose.

Anyway, hope to see you back sometime, and I'll check you out again soon!

It never intended to be an in-depth and sharp analysis on Israel Leon. It was just a mild rant triggered off by yet another act of “bullying” by an arrogant unlawful state…

Sometime I am really in favour of a thorough castration Grey…
