Whenever anyone says anything critical about Israel, there’s always an Israeli who will compare it to other countries and say “So what if we suck, we’re still better than THEM”. What kind of fucked up logic is that? How does that serve anything? We need to stop pointing our fingers at everyone else and start looking at ourselves! Like Gandhi said: “BE the change you want to see in the world” …he did NOT say…”Compare yourself to people who suck even more than you so that you can feel better about yourself.”
The problem begins when we set “peace” as some future goal, and then expect someone “out there” to achieve it for us. There is no path to peace; peace IS the path. It begins with me, and it begins with you, and it has nothing to do with governments, or politics, or false promises of a better “tomorrow.” The sooner we all realize that, the faster we can start creating the kind of world we want to see.
