I may hold an opinion which may be bias but forgive me for this because presently I am researching from the Palestinian point of view and is bound to influence my opinion.
Israel turns 58 and continues to be a young child in the international community of nations.
58 years back, it was the Israelis who bore the excesses of evil and after 14th May'1948, they were the ones who spread their hand across the geographical entity of Palestine and spread the message of mayhem and ruthless butchery. It was on that very day when it got a legal status and made their homes by destroying the peace of others.
The paradise which was once accompanied by humanity continues to be a victim of pool of blood everyday. They not only seem to destroy their houses but also snatch the element of family or life from them. With the passage of time, the citizens of the world seem to have been 'desensitized' by the whole conflict.The bloody tales of this land remain ' just another story' for them. The stacks of dead bodies have immune the land of Gaza Strip, West Bank, Golan Heights from the very day of Israel's creation.
As stipulated in the Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, "The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies. The International organizations and the globally 'much concerned ' European nations have become deaf and blind to the happenings . The convention remain merely papers having no practical importance but only nominal academic value.
The Israeli settlements in occupied areas goes unchecked. In an endeavor to establish their home(Israeli) in occupied territories, the coldblooded killings of the Palestinians have become a global concern. The irony is that the concern for this middle-east conflict is just till lip sympathy or seldom donations or aid. 60+ new Jewish settlements have been built by the Israeli government on confiscated Palestinian land between March 2001 and July 11, 2003.

European countries overtly support Israel and are the selfish guardians of this illegimate child. There hostile attitude towards the Palestinian side of the story is evident of their connivance. Israeli army seems to cross the very threshold of humanity while dealing with Palestinians but there is no apprehension by any country and why have... when these actions which fade away with words and speeches....
It is thus hoped that one day ..one day... the Arabs who originally belong to this land get to see a recongnized country with the soft touch of humanity and peace. The dormant sovereign nations of the global community should wake up from the shackles of sleep and open there eyes to justice and humanity.
