Israeli-Arab Conflict

Posted by Janus on July 29, 2006

Everyone who knows me might be wondering what my opinion is on this conflict currently taking place in the middle east, well i’m not going to mince my words with this considering the severe situation.

As far as i’m concerned i’ll say that i will concede that Hezbollah did start the conflict but that doesn’t mean that Israel can dish out a collective punishment for the actions of some. Hezbollah while having large support aren’t near having the support of all the citizens of Lebanon so that in theory should mean that the general population are of limits, but for Israel that’s never the case. I understand they want to protect their homes but that doesn’t give them an open ticket to attack with no regard for human lives, personally i believe Israel could protect their citizens more effectively if they returned stolen lands and prisoners. It also wouldn’t hurt to financially help out the Lebanese and Palestinians so that they have less reason to hate Israelis.

What annoys me the most is the international reaction, Of course i’m not happy about the American reaction but it’s my own peoples reaction that surprised me the most. It seems to me that Europeans are getting sick of this endless Israeli-Arab conflict, the problem is that we as Europeans will always be closer to Lebanon and Palestine than to Israel. I think we have gotten bored of Israels refusal to settle problems without force and America’s interference in something they know nothing about nor have a stake in.
