My first post is about my understanding on one issue that has haunted my mind and heart for a long time now....this is the Israel-Palestine issue!!
Any view that is built in the mind is more or less influenced by the media in any country.In my view, the media has always been stereotyped and show whatever suits the situation ;the content is altered to match the desires of either the government or an ideology.
I preferred not to learn about this case from the data and facts provided but to have a direct talk to the people who are a victim of this very problem. It has not been long but still i strongly withhold the opinion that IT IS NOT JUS' AN ISSUE BUT A LONG STORY.
I had always thought that the jews were subject to excesses that crossed the very emotions of humanity and love, this was prevalent especially during the time of the Nazis. My mind was embedded with an impression that it was justified for the Israelis to live in the land they rightly bought from the palestinians. The Israelis have always impressed me with their powerful resistance in all the wars that they have been a part of!!
Destiny has walked hand in hand with me and helped me find the right people whose views i respect wholeheartedly!!For the first time, I am putting myself in the shoes of a Palestine.
A friend of mine who is supporting me in the research of this issue (who is a palestinian) wrote a few lines which highlighted the frustration a common Palestinian bears in the present times.
'As a palestinian i have a huge problem with the israeli they steal our land, they have killed my people every day since 1948 and no one asks them to stop;they forced the palestinian to leave their houses and farm and every thing..and now they said that they own it..they own nothing at this land..and u ask me if we hurt the Israeli or not, we hurt them but what we do is nothing in comparison to wat they did with my people they killed and they destroy, they steal they do many bad thing i cant even count it...and if they should have another land...i do not know any where except palestine is ok for me...'
I questioned myself, How does it hurt when you see your own people suffer because of people you were once invited in your very home??
How frustrating it is, when the wrong doers (from a palestinians point of view)are supported by the strongest country and a super-power???
I may hold many biases with every word i type. I hope to know an Israeli's view also on the same and would like to learn without any biases but as of now I dedicate this post to the spirit of a patriotic Palestinian.
I have began the understanding of Pal-Israel conflict from a common man view and hope to know more about it!!
Inshallah, I would like to visit these two places and feel the very spirit of people there.
n hope that this conflict resolves some day!!
