Israel and Palestine

Posted: July 14, 2014 in Uncategorized

This WordPress contains pictures and photos of Israeli and Palestinian views on Gaza and the West Bank and The State of Israel .These are pictures that I have seen Tweeted or put on Facebook .

My own view is simple – I would like to see a single ,federated, Secular
nation with a new capital and Jerusalem as a type of Vatican Free city , open to all .It’s accepted by its neighbors , who are also Secular and peaceful . This is probably a pipe dream .

image

There are resolutions against Israel , but you really have to look at who voted for them .I will make it clear here ,that until my Utopian dream actually happens , I AM in favour of An Israel existing and being a democracy, with religion on the decrease . I AM in favour of A Palestinian State existing and one day removing the extremists from office ,to be a democracy . Both states must learn to trust each other .

image

I am fed up of seeing this situation on my TV . Just really fed up of the Flare ups .

image

Religion is the cause ,politics and ownership of land and water disputes continue it . Also Israeli Settlements and house demolition inflames it further . The firing of rockets by Arab extremists is wrong . The use of children in any war is wrong .The use of civilians as shields or being targeted when a surgical strike is underway is wrong . It is also true that Judaism can continue without Zionism , but Zionism can’t continue without Judaism .Hamas also knows any rockets fired at Israel will bring an overwhelming response of military firepower , in which civilians will suffer .

image

To go back to the borders of 1947 is unrealistic , but THESE are the proper UN / Allied Powers agreed-on borders !! Remember that .
To have the borders of 1967 is a compromise for Palestinians , but giving up All Settlements built after 1967 is a compromise that Israel would have to make .

A good question – When Gaza was ‘ Egyptian’ and The West Bank was ‘ Jordanian’ , why didn’t they create a Palestinian state then ?

A rough quote from Golda Meir – ” when the Arabs love their kids , more than hating us …then there will be peace ”

Seeing pictures of children from Gaza being trained for ” War against Israel ” …this is a long way off !

In no order and with NO endorsement by me  … The pictures

Palestine , 1942 coins

Israel has never ” grabbed ” land !

Untrue , Jewish settlers established Kiriath-Arba (after Joshua 14 :15) in Hebron .The private Palestinian land was expropriated (25 Hectares) for ‘ security ‘ reasons & a supposed military base set up and then in 1971 the first settlers moved in .

How can a Secular state have a religious national flag ?

image

image

I don’t think Israel wants this …just safe borders .

image

What would happen if a group called the Phoenician Liberation Front called for their state to be reborn ?

Another coin , 1927 .

image

Bantustans were the South African way of creating a ghetto / area of concentration for a minority ,giving them a veneer of ‘ Independence ‘ , then walking away , still very much in control .

image

image

image

If both sides slowly but surely see that religion isn’t based on truth , maybe things will change .

image

Maps have played a part in this conflict .Some people see this picture differently
See below ⤵

image

For Jewish \ Zionists – ⏫ this map is correct .

image

Then , for others – they don’t even see TransJordan .In their head , Palestine was the left part only .
Jewish homeland IN Palestine is 1947 map .
Israel was attacked and gained territory up to 1967 .
They gained more afterwards .
1967 .
Two state solution rests on both sides agreeing to that 1967 land border and allowing Palestinian people back into Israel or Israel giving compensation .Israel gives up Most / all settlements .It is colonialism to take land by force , throw out the people living there and build your own homes there .Land theft .Wrong .

image

Some Zionists see this as the whole – with Palestinian Palestine being the right and Israeli Palestine as the left ,with Jordan River as boundary .

A solution is way , way off .

Is this area is the ulcer of the World ?

Has the ” right to return ” failed ?

Additional insert – I was given a link to BDS Movement Freedom Justice Equality by a Tweeter . ( http://www.twitter.com/stanleyrogouski )
Boycott , Divestment and Sanctions movement .Founded 9 th July 2005 , by 171 non-gov Palestinian organizations , they use UN Resolutions for a Global BDS campaign . Norman Finkelstein , a pro-palestinian has called BDS ” a cult ” .I don’t know about that .

And this is a map of the Middle East , if all this petty , horrible , nasty , vile hatred born of ( Mythical ) God-given Divine Land certificates & use of Civilian as pawns in a bigger power game continues…..
