The military action that we are watching in the Middle East right now is just a preview of coming attractions. Tensions in the region are rising with each passing day, and all sides have been anticipating future conflicts and preparing for war for decades. It would be wonderful if everyone could sit down, forgive each other and agree to quit fighting, but that is not going to happen. Most of us that live in the western world have a very difficult time understanding the mindset of those immersed in these conflicts. In the Middle East, there are vendettas and grudges that go back literally thousands of years. Children are raised in schools where they are taught to bitterly hate their enemies from the time that they are first able to speak. As Americans, we have forgiven former enemies such as Germany and Japan and we just expect that everyone else should be able to forgive as well. But that is simply not the way that it works over there, and there is no long-term solution in the Middle East that is going to be acceptable to all sides. Right now, Israel, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, Syria and Iran are all preparing for war. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail in this current crisis, but that will only delay the inevitable. There will be war in the Middle East. Yes, politicians such as Barack Obama will do their best to broker more "peace agreements", but even the declaration of a "Palestinian state" will never stop the fighting. In fact, it would just set the stage for more war. I don't mean to sound pessimistic about the region, but the truth is that there will be more war until it is not possible to fight any longer. Any "peace plan" will just be a pause in the warfare.
AMEN to that.
Got to remember folks, the Middle East has become in the last few years more and more like a dry tinder box ready to “burst into flames”.
I don’t know how anyone could not believe if you read the prophesies and then look at what is happening.
They need to take over completely the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip. Then they need to expel the Palestinians by sending all of them into Egypt. Let that idiot Morsi deal with them.
I believe it re the Jordanian guy you met. But remember that in Israel they are not driven by hatred. THEY WANT ONLY TO SURVIVE AND LIVE IN FREEDOM. This is not a fight between equals. Israel wants to prevent their own death, which makes their tactics more “final.” They have no goal to annihilate anyone who doesn’t wish them harm.
“Right now, Israel, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, Syria and Iran are all preparing for war. “
Right, they are all the same.
WARNING - Moral equivalency in this thread
It looks like the IDF will enter Gaza within the next few days. It is the only realistic way to stop the Islamic death cultists of Hamas and Islamic Jihad (both supported and armed by Iran) from rocketing deeper and deeper areas of Israel.
