The Dilemma

The Dilemma
By Donal/VerityINK

Today, I finally got it about the Jews. My mental disconnect ended and I realized their eternal dilemma. I mean, these people have been beset with various nations and groups trying to assassinate them for centuries. And, now, they are being pushed to the edge of having to guard their own survival (no less because no one else will).

However, they do not want to be genocidal themselves. It's abhorrent to them; they are too moral a people--and it's not just a matter of it having been done continually to them that they eschew it.

I finally understand because I am at the point where I am done. My tolerance is gone. I hate the Palestinians/muslim terrorists and wish they were off the earth--and I am so far gone it is only in some moments that I feel badly about this. I can just imagine how the Israelis feel. Living next door to people who want nothing more than their death--calling them apes and pigs--living down the street from an Iranian madman who says he wants the bomb to do it with even more dispatch...

Then, the Jews, thinking of Hitler--and having him forever imprinted on their collective memory and wanting SO badly to never be equated with him--and, yet, having to make sure they endure and that maybe they cannot do that without taking out a large swath of their enemies (who insist on hiding behind their own civilian people). That conundrum is surely the definition of hell: to be genocidal or be exterminated yourself.

You see, I've never quite understood why Israel has not done more to defend itself (though I do understand the United States has had a hand in this, wanting 'stability' in the middle east... and world opinion has never cared one whit for Israel and militates heavily against their own self-defense.) Instead, I think this forever-dilemma has as much to do with it.

Fortunately, Ahmadinejad may make the question moot (and the mullahs, understanding where his insanity may take them, might be what is making him unpopular, at times, in Iran). He is playing a fools game because, of all the people on earth that would be willing to believe someone is really trying to kill them, it would be the Jews. Ahmadinejad does not understand this; they are quite serious, and one bad move on his part will give them the justification they currently may not feel they have.

They've had it for years.

Pardon me for appearing to speak for a people, perhaps assuming without first asking (or being off base entirely); these are only my mental ruminations this morning.

P.S. I wrote this last year and decided to reprint this today as world happenings seem--again--to make it particularly relevant.

Sixty three years after the Holocaust the world seems surprised at the sight of a fighting Jew.Too bad.Because this is the new Jew.The difference between a fighting Jew and a Muslim terrorist is that the Jew fights to save lives and is careful not to hurt innocents while the Muslim terrorist does not even fight but just slays and slaughters innocents.

It is good to be a Jew.

Yes. Few people have done as much for the world--or been the good citizens of every country in which they've ever lived--as the Jews.

No one is scared to walk alone, at night, in a Jewish neighborhood...
