"To comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable"

Israel in Gaza, Israel with Arabs

Israel is beating the life out of the people of Gaza, literally. Every  man, woman and child is paying for Israel’s “Right to self-defense” with their lives, the lives of their loved ones, with their hunger, with their injuries and with their loved ones. No one is spared. It appears that nobody in Israel nor any Israel-supporting Jew, recognizes the similarity of the State brutality between today’s Israel and the Nazi Holocaust.
Shoah compared 9

Shoah compared 92
The Palestinians have the temerity to stand their ground, to demand, not beg, but Demand, justice and equality with God’s Chosen People. The Palestinians wage war of terror on the Israeli people who only want peace so they can live their lives and continue to take all the lands they want and to dispossess all the Christians and the Muslims. Israel is and must become, a land for Jews and only Jews. Any Palestinians who cannot be bought or bullied, must be killed.
Right of Self Defense
I was going to say, it takes a lot of guts for Israelis to take the above position, but it does not, there is no courage, chutzpah or guts involved in the attitude Israelis and their supportive Jews take towards Arabs and Muslims, all it takes is the comfort of knowing the ONLY world super-power will stand behind Israel no matter what. If Israel shells and bombs Gaza, the US will ship replacement bombs and shells, if it costs Israel a lot of money to wage this self-declared “War!”, the US will foot the bill and all the while, our president will chastise Muslims for not standing up against the “Terrorists in Gaza” and he will blame the people of Gaza for attacking Israel. Our president and the entire US Congress, is standing up for “Israel’s right to defend itself”. Proportionality be damned.
Jews all over the world, have been so thoroughly programmed into the belief that they are just about to be exterminated a la the Shoah, that they no longer see the humanity of anyone they are told, is “the enemy”. Palestinians are at the top of the list of vermin and disease that most Jews have been led to believe, the world (of Jews) would be safer without. Islam and Muslims have also been effectively portrayed as the singular existential threat to all Jews so, most of them also see Islam and Muslims as disease-ridden garbage that must be eliminated.
So it goes, that while the Jews of Israel try to complete the genocide of Palestinians, the Jews of the rest of the world, rally to Israel’s support and ensure their governments also support Israel with money, materiel and politics. To be sure, there are a number of Jews who are not supportive of Israel in their persecution of the Palestinians, but those numbers are not significant enough to matter.
Let us not focus entirely on Jews in this tragedy, there is plenty of blame to be shared by Muslim governments who are silent while the genocide continues, who actually support Israel and hope for a complete destruction of Gaza and who are willing to kill their own protesting people. To the shame of every Muslim, Israel’s free hand at mass slaughter in Gaza, is strengthened by the silence of Muslims.
Gaza & Arab silence
In America, Muslims are still in complete disarray while the Jews who support Israel are hard at work on American politicians. Resolutions are passed, defending Israel’s contrived right to its imaginary existential defense and now, the US Senate is poised to pass Stand With Israel Act (S.2265) which will further strangle the people of Gaza in order to legitimize Israel’s occupation of lands it never owned.
In an almost Alice-in-Wonderland manner, everything that Israel and its Jews do, is attributed to Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims; Israel terrorizes Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, but Palestinians are blamed for terrorizing Jews in fact, the term “Palestinian”, seems out of place in Israel unless it is precede by “Terrorist”. Jews of Israel grab the lands and properties of Palestinians, but the Palestinians are blamed for wanting to push Jews out to the sea. Jews are the ones slaughtering Palestinians, but when a single Jews is killed, it seems that the Palestinians have launched another Shoah.
America and its Americans are completely fine with this state of affairs because they have been careful cultivated to believe Israel’s narrative as the only Truth.
So, when will the Holocaust in Gaza stop?
When it serves Israel to stop it and then it will be praised by Western leadership for its “restraint” and Israel will get buckets of money and arms as a reward while the Palestinians will have to endure more hunger and deprivation until they accept Israel’s right to own whatever lands its Jews want and agree to live in humiliation and dispossession in silence.
The holocaust will not stop because of demonstrations because it has already been proven that demonstrations don’t matter in political decision-making, money and vote do and Muslims are absent in these real and meaningful items.
It is complicated. We cry, we weep and we pray. The rest is up to God, we are not involved.

P.S. As a rule, I don’t republish other people’s writings, but this article is worth reading:
Excerpt: I was in Israel last year with Mary [a mutual friend]. Her sister works for UNRWA [the UN agency for Palestinian refugees] in Jerusalem. Showing us round were a Palestinian – Shadi, who is her sister’s husband and a professional guide – and Oren Jacobovitch, an Israeli Jew, an ex-major from the IDF [Israel Defence Forces] who left the service under a cloud for refusing to beat up Palestinians. Between the two of them we got to see some harrowing things – Palestinian houses hemmed in by wire mesh and boards to prevent settlers throwing shit and piss and used sanitary towels at the inhabitants; Palestinian kids on their way to school being beaten by Israeli kids with baseball bats to parental applause and laughter; a whole village evicted and living in caves while three settler families moved on to their land; an Israeli settlement on top of a hill diverting its sewage directly down on to Palestinian farmland below; The Wall; the checkpoints. and all the endless daily humiliations. I kept thinking, “Do Americans really condone this? Do they really think this is OK? Or do they just not know about it?”

    • Just because you feel enraged or frsytrated, don’t shut down. Put your rage to good use and talk to others about it, see if you can convince Muslims to start to talk to each other in the spirit of cooperation and work jointly to wield the vast political power that is lying useless within our hands.
      Work on it and get others to also work on it.
