As the song says, a Latin American with no money in his pocket.

Am I crazy?

Stop the world, I want to get off! Here we have the venerable United Nations General Assembly making choices like a teenager dyeing their hair blue just to tick off their parents. Oh sure, the resolution passed, but not without a bit of theatrical flair.

It’s all very heartwarming, everyone hugging the Palestinian cause like it’s the last panda cub at the zoo. But what about the 1,400 Israeli souls lost to terrorism? Ah, those are mere details, puzzle pieces that no one wants to put together.

Before someone raises their finger to ask about innocent Palestinians, let me clarify something. This war is for them, too. The Israeli army, often painted as the villain of the story, remains the most ethical of all the world’s armed forces. They too are held hostage by the terrorist activities of Hamas. Let’s remember other moments in history where the world stepped in to save oppressed populations: intervening in Bosnia to end genocide.

So, are we talking about revenge? Yes, revenge. Because every family burying a loved one wants more than a condolence tweet. They want the group that turned their lives into a nightmare to end. Hamas has to be more than defeated; it needs to be eradicated, wiped off the map like a miscalculation so that no other fanatic gets the idea to tread the same path.

Ah, yes, let’s not forget the crew that got us into this splendid mess. Benjamin Netanyahu and his choir of extremists are giving a performance worthy of a poorly written script. But mark my words, their reckoning is nigh. They will pay, oh they will pay, but on the battleground that terrifies them the most: the ballot box. The loss of power will be their political epitaph, read and forgotten like minor characters in a bad novel. And if justice truly has eyes wide open, maybe they’ll find a new home behind bars where they can ponder the series of missteps they orchestrated.

So, while you, dear reader, ponder which side of this farce deserves your applause or boos, remember: there’s much more at stake than hashtags and fiery speeches. This is the world we live in, a stage set for an unrehearsed play. And the ending is yet to be written. As for me, I’ve already saved my ticket for the final act. Have you?
