We woke up, to war...

TheChroniclesofBlaaaaahnia was never meant to be about politics. I had designs of putting all of my thoughts of that nature onto another forum. But alas, I feel I must have my say on this. Last weekend or the weekend before, we woke up and another war had broken out. We were all groggy-eyed and a post- Sharon government, trying to look like they mean business are well at work murdering people in neighbouring Lebanon, how very intelligent to start WWIII over Sunday breakfast, I might add.

Granted the Middle East isn’t the most politically stable area on earth and there’ve been cross border raids for years. But is the life of one Israeli soldier captured worth more than the estimated 1000 Lebanese and Muslim lives lost? Is being killed and captured not part of a soldier’s job description in the first place? It’s definitely not in a civilian’s job description to be bombed by US sponsored Israeli weaponry in your own home. Something’s awry and we all know that governments have wars to detract attention from the real deal at home. And now according to a New York Times Report it seems as though there is not going to be an end to all of this anytime soon.

Israel attacks “Hizbollah Targets” such as schools, airports, hospitals etc. And somehow or the other this is regarded as “Israel’s right to defend herself” and not as terrorist activity which Muslims are accused of when they dress as Muslims and have a birthday party together. The bottom line is that this whole business is just pure arrogance. There’s arrogance on the part of Israel knowing full well that they’ve got the US backing them regardless and arrogance on the part of the Arabs who won’t give up without a fight or unite or insist on talks. (Talks which never seem to see things from their side anyway.) Sometimes I really think that we are“nothing but a shadow, a faceless generation, devoid of love…”

I support the Palestinian Muslims and Christians because they do live in appalling poverty, misery and under extreme oppression meted out to them by Israel. This is not an anti- Semitic statement at all. The Word semitic encompasses and implies Arab as well. Not all Jews are Zionists the same way not all Afrikaaners are AWB members. Jews like Muslims and Christians are As-hab Ul Kitaab (People of the Book).Zionism is not a religion.It's a political and nationalist ideology that is flawed and based on warped logic, just like how Apartheid was constructed. I understand the desperation which drives the Palestinians to fight for their land, their people and their cause. But I do not understand war. Killing people on both sides will not make the situation better. Human Life is human life. The same righteousness and God we’re all fighting for is Merciful and will judge each individual accordingly. The same Satan we’re fighting against is the same Satan encouraging us to fight supposedly in the Name of God. God doesn't ask us to fight for Him. If He wanted to he'd smite us all off the face of this earth. God asks us to show gratitude for the multitude of favours He's bestwoed on us.I agree completely with Ed and Live again “There’s nothing more Godless than a war”. People have become so desensitised and so lacking in humanity that this does not matter to both sides.

Each side views its fallen heroes as martyrs to the cause and each side is equally indoctrinated into the righteousness of their cause. The Lebanese should wake up and smell the kah-wa because this whole thing looks like a complete set-up to get Iran and Syria involved. And then Dubya can claim they’ve gone against some obscure clause in something or the other and invade, loot and plunder. And by the way

if it's ever leaked.Conspiracy theories aside….

How sick do people have to be to take the life of another human? How sick are you to teach innocent children to hate? How sick are you to allow children to believe that there is only one version of anything? How sick are you to teach children that your political ideology is more important than your ethical/religious one?

I’m not pasting these pictures because of sensitive readers etc but click and have a look and you tell me whether that’s warranted or not?

Right now I don’t even know if I’m making sense or not. All I know is what I feel and what I feel is that this is all completely unjust and iniquitous. Both sides should read Anne Rice’s Queen of the Damned. Akasha might’ve been onto something when she told Lestat the only way for the world to be safe, is to kill all the men and leave only a good few for breeding purposes. When the legacy of violence and subjugation and hate has been eradicated then she will allow the numbers to increase and the population to grow. And the world shall be at peace…. Apparently….

Seem's like nothing's changes since-
“Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace


You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one


Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world


You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one.”


“The world got smaller but the bombs got bigger…” how sad, how arrogant, how disrespectful, how narcissistic, how corrupt, how true- how humanly inhumane.

*sigh* such is the mark of the species you lot chose :P
The Elven-Vampyre

I can't say much but I'd have to agree. Very eloquently put... I just might quote you in future :)

Given now that the US is sponsoring bombs and weapons to Israel... this is going to on for far longer than we think, and more people are going to die sadly...

I'd liketo just reverberate the comments of Leila Khaled regarding South Africa on this issue that South Africa shouldn't mediate in the current conflict, but they have to choose a side.

Somebody needs to knock down that God-forsaken fence becuase Evil is Evil, plain and simple... it's written in blood across the news. and we all need to fight it, regardles of which side it is.

Peace,

M.

I cant argue with a single point you have made, you are 10000% correct, the world is two-faced only the opinion of the JEW is respected, forget the rest of the followers of the various other religions in the world, only Israel is allowed to "defend" in this manner, its utter and complete BS!!!!! if the situations were reversed i would without a doubt say that the rest of the world would not give two shits!!!! cos then Israel would be right in capturing the militants and therefore it would be incorrect for Hizbullah to DEFEND itself... its utter and complete BS, if the muslim country is not a puppet of the Americans then its defense force etc are labelled as TERRORISTS... this world would be a much safer place without AMERICA shoving its fat face all over the world further increasing tensions and hostilities among the various nations in the world!

You Know Who... hahahaha (No i will not get a blog)

very well put. Yet somehow we still think the matter must be more complex if the struggle has been going on this long. The US has always been supporting Israel, possibly out of guilt for it's lack activity in preventing many deaths.

your points are really good and are appreciated by all who view war as as the trait of a morally degenerative society that refuses to learn from its mistakes (read: WW1, WW2, Vietnam)its an ongoing, destructive cycle. the battle is supposedly against the evil, so why arn't the instigators fighting themselves? i agree: when all else fails, turn to ann rice.sound advice is always provided.

My comment as pasted from The Organ Harvester's post of a similar nature on Tuesday 25/7/06:

Strange though how in a time frame just shy of 2 generations of living history. Israel and it's people have forgotten the horrors they(and gays, gypsies, Poles) were subjected to under Hitler. Israel has used this to earn world sympathy for far too long. Surely if it's still so fresh in your memory as you claim, then you'll know better than to treat other people in the same if not worse manner? Funny how also, there seems to be more WWII holocaust survivors now than at the end of the war?
