Unless you've been in a cave or on the moon, you know that the state of Israel and the Palestinian people are at each other again.
Like most Americans, I've bought in to the spin we hear through our Media on who's right and who is wrong. Or who started it, or who the terrorists are and so forth.
Recently I've asked myself: why are the Palestinians shooting rockets in to Israel.
My wife thinks that both peoples are doomed to eternal strife. She may be right.
I came across this video on an open thread at Crooks and Liars. It is long, so bring some popcorn and a drink, then sit back and just listen. You will come away with a better understanding of what's going on. In addition you'll begin to understand why the fanatical Muslims hate us. We give billions to Israel each year for their military. This video shows what that military spends its time doing. It ain't pretty.
View this if you want to make a start at understanding what is driving the craziness we see coming from this region each day.
There's always two sides to every struggle. We need to see both sides if we're ever going to help bring peace or even just stop the killing.
This seems to me a conflict with no good guys and lots of blame to go around. What do you think?
