Isn't It Ironic?
For those who have been living under a rock, Israel is evicting Jews from the Gaza Strip this week. Now here's what is sooooo ironic about this: Last night on ABC World News this Weekend we saw a woman saying how it was wrong for her to be evicted to make room for Palestinians. Never mind that the state of Israel exists because the same thing was done to Palestinians. Oh, but the irony continues! sympathisers for the settlers have snuck into the strip and say they will put up a fight. Hmmm.. This sounds like an Intifada! Oh but it gets even more ironic!! How about a member of the Israeli security forces going on a killing spree? And on TV we see Jews, American Jews at that, claiming "It is our land and we aren't going anywhere! You have to hold on to what's yours!"
It would seem to me that the very actions being seen here by Jews in Israel only proves the correctness of the Palestinian position, it's rhetoric and even it's violence. If there is indeed violence in the next two days when Israeli security forces have to physically remove the settlers, then Israelis woudl have lost any and all moral high ground they may have had with any thinking people who see the clear parallels.
