Gaza’s Stark Reality

What’s going on in Palestine is no joke, but who brought it on were the leaders and militant followers who attacked helpless civilians in Israel last Saturday October 7th. It’s a sad reminder that innocent victims caught in the crossfire have no say in matters conducted by terrorists.

Hamas has a lot to answer for to the Palestinian people. On one hand they say it was on behalf of the Palestinian people who are overpopulated along the Gaza Strip, but then when you look into it the scenario is another. São Paulo has 2.84 million citizens instead of 2.3 million in the same land size of Gaza, so what exactly is the reasoning for the barbaric act? Then they have a 40 km shoreline for tourism which São Paulo doesn’t have.


If they lived in peace then foreigners would be visiting, and then in place of 50% unemployment they would fill vacancies for helpful services, and to top it off the country could be vibrantly attractive to follow Israels example of development. If you live well with your neighbors then they would probably be supporting each other with trade agreements.


Instead, since the twentieth century Palestinians teach their children to be hostile towards the Jews whilst many of them talk about jihad instead of peace and love. Schools provide activities to worsen the hate. A June 2015 opinion poll found that Islamic Jihad was viewed favorably by 71% of Palestinians in the West Bank and 84% of Palestinians in Gaza. Inciting hate and war with the annihilation of Jews and Israel is a holy war declaration.

However, many people condemn Israel for protecting their nation, an original home of the Jewish people thousands of years before Christ. By the end of World War 1, The Balfour Declaration of 1917 offered British support for the establishment in Palestine for the Jewish people. It was George V at the time: God save our king! 75,000 Jews legally emigrated to Palestine from 1922 to 1926. Palestinians were reluctant to accept the solution, and instead caused riots and massacres to destroy Jewish morale.


Fortunately, Jews rose to fight back, and history shows time and time again how the Jews club together to overcome Palestinians continual insistence to dethrone Israel and its chosen people.


Uncivilized countries don’t support an Israeli state. Countries such as Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen do not recognize Israel as a state. Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan also do not recognize Israel as a state.


Nevertheless. Saudi Arabia are about to turn the tide and reach an agreement with Israel to create a new alliance ‘deal of the Century’ which clearly in the eyes of fanatic Muslims goes against the tide.


Have a great day!
