I’m allowed my own opinion, no? And if it’s not oppressive to any socially weak group, I’m allowed to voice it, no? Even if no one else thinks this, no?
I think that Israel should not end halfway its assault on the junta of Gaza.
Was Hitler to have wished a cease-fire halfway the Allied forces’ landing at Normandy, should that offer have been considered? Of course not!
We need no negotiations to end the hostilities. We need to push on until Chamas capitulates or is too weakened or decimated to even do that.
Then we should ask our peace partner Egypt temporarily to accept Gaza as their Mandate area, to install Palestinian democracy-embracing governors to serve the masses, and to prepare for democracy.
Present-day Egypt has much experience setting up a military and police force not infiltrated by Muslim extremists. Of course, we would like to see Egypt become more democratic itself. Maybe this job may help her.
We would want also the populations of Egypt and Gaza to begin ending their centuries-old hatred of Jews, but why try succeeding in every aspect all at once? The assistance they’ll receive from the US, France, and Israel (among other democracies) will be fertile ground for seeds of respect.
Never forget that Israel is the greatest friend the people of Gaza ever had, even if they don’t know it yet. Ah, I found someone agreeing with me. NB: Not Israel’s airstrikes make Gazans needy, hungry, thirsty, hot, and unsafe, but all lack of care, help, or provisions by the Gaza junta. Not only do they lack shelter; they’re used as human shields and told it’s an honor to die.
Also, as soon as Jordan is relieved of its own dictators, its newly invented royal family, steps should be taken to do the same with some areas on the West Bank. In that Jordanian Mandate, there will be no room for terrorist power-hungry fillers of their own pockets. All should be done to further the interests of the people under her rule. But first, Jordan must become more geared toward the interest of her masses, including the Palestinians.
Pipedreams? Who wrote: “If you want it, it won’t be a fairytale”?
When we ignore that large sections of humanity living under oppression without freedom, all of us, will suffer the consequences. How much worldwide suffering has been caused already by the dictators in China (corona), Gaza (antisemitism), Iran (nuclear weapons), etc.?!
