The human face of conflict. war, political threat, Intifada, struggle for the good life, women and their loved ones searching for the "good life" under war. Israel, the Israel Palestinian conflict.
Dear Mr. Stephens,
I've writing in response to your newspaper article out of a sense of overwhelming gratitude to you and Mitt Romney.
Because you are of course right. Years ago, Israel was the "pluckyunderdog, the proud member of the Socialist International."willing to
give its all to build a country in which its people could live in
peace with its neighbors. And you are right again when you publicly
acknowledge - finally someone, no, not one, two wonderful individuals
acknowledge - that Israel exports "technology, not tyranny and
terrorism," that it devotes all its energies that are not dedicated to
defense, to life-enhancing research. May God bless you for that.
Because, though Israelis have by now relinquished their dream of
peace, they have no interest in perpetuating their tiresome Arab
Israel conflict. Nor, strange as this might seem, is Israel (no larger
than Rhode Island) interested in giving away anymore of its territory
for a peace that is never forthcoming. What is wrong with this
generation that rewrites history every five minutes, and lies to do so? - What is wrong with our generation that it so intensely wants to believe a people whose fury at Israel stems simply from Israel’s being there, near them – more, for its being plucky, successful, and dedicated to life.
The Palestinians too can have a life of wellbeing. All it needs to do is to allow Israel to exist, and build a home dedica of its own on the territory they already call Palestine..
Israela: secrets, lies, and alienation. Heroism. Arabs saving Jews and Jews healing Arabs in Israel. Israela: An eternal struggle for peace. Three women and their loved ones seeking the "good life" under war. The complex social structure of Israel, tradition, history, war, Intifada, and love.
