I feel like people were baited. Right before Nabka they moved the embassy to Jerusalem and used a Trumper priest that calls Islam the religion of Satan for opening ceremonies. Using bullets that explode to do as much harm as possible to people protesting, people who feel trapped and want to go home. I feel like there are so many ways to broker peace and this was not that. This created amputees and dead to be mourned. Then the U.S. saying this is not a crime to attack people this way? It must have been common knowledge that there would be protests. I don't understand this course of action. Where are the real peacemakers and what should be done? I have wondered since I was a child how this situation can become better and wonder now what ideas people have.
Yes, people are baited, on all sides. This conflict is greater than moving the embassy and than the shooting of more people. It's greater even than simply Israel v the Palestinians. Leadership on both sides have brokered deals (Israel with the US and with neighboring Arab countries), (Palestinians with Iran and other Arab countries) that keep this conflict entrenched. With Trump in office, the religious right are now married to Netanyahu and he's just the wrong leadership for Israel's future.
The Israeli people and the Palestinian people are the only parties that want to see an end to the conflict.
@Anemynous reaction is pretty standard to the complexity: blame the easiest to grasp, most visible problem: the Israelis killing unarmed civilians. Unfortunately, Arabs use suicide for PR, too. The whole thins was a setup on both sides.
This issue is much too complicated to reduce it to emotional reaction like Anemynous. If there is to be real change, leadership on both sides have to be held accountable for their actions. The Palestinian Authority and Iran want to wipe out Israel. Netanyahu and the religious appear to be perfectly fine without a two-state solution. The neighboring Arab countries allow/count on Israel to help them control their own populations but publicly condemn Israel. There is so much at play here.
Get informed. Look at the UN and how many countries with dictators are represented. This issue goes way beyond Israel and the Palestinians. Hope you keep posting and look beyond what's visible for the answers to your questions.
I am greatly aggrieved by it, and many other atrocities practiced under the sanction of a faith or political ideology. I can't fathom how the perpetrators are failing to grasp the irony of the genocide they are participating in. Fuck Zionism! The problem isn't that Jews want a homeland. The problem is they don't want anyone else in it. That's garbage.
