Anger over Gaza Deaths

Anger is perhaps the most tepid of feelings any conscionable person could garner from Monday's slaughter of 58 Palestinians and the injury of another 2,700 at the hands of of Israeli forces in Gaza.

And that the Palestinian deaths would come on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Jewish state, makes it even more prosperous to comprehend, since some 700,000 Palestinians were displaced during the process of giving Israel statehood, May 14, 1948.

Palestinians with stones and flambeaus have waged a non-winning uprising against a well-equipped and armed Israeli army from the start of my conscious history. And despite the staggering deaths over the years, Palestinians still continue their resistance to Israeli occupation, their quest for independence and their demand for ancestral lands. Thus, the Palestinian claims must hold credence and demand justice.

Israel must not be allowed to murder Palestinians with impunity. Israel's so-called accepted hardline to Palestinian protests must be condemned and the state should be held responsible for the killing of so many Palestinians.

Yet, the powers that be are very unlikely to hold Israel responsible for taking Palestinian lives. So the carnage of violence will therefore continue in the region. Israel's might clearly dominates the Palestinians. But what will happen should the Palestinians become equally equipped? 

A peaceful resolution to the mutual sharing of lands and cohabitation is needed in the old Biblical lands. Israeli celebrations and Palestinian deaths are unacceptable realities to violent radicalization in the Middle East.
