The following video is a little over 6 minutes but worth watching. It is a montage of two videos and my own minor additions. I am not a religious person but since Israel’s foundation is on Judaism, I thought that bringing in the 10 commandments would be very relevant.
A gentleman has been coming on my blog and leaving extensive comments, reasonably polite, but insisting that Israel is right and Palestinians and other Arabs are wrong and the whole world is wrong and only Israel is on the right path. It is this gentleman who motivated me to do this video because I watched with horror what Israel did in 2008 and 2009 and the whole world sat on the sidelines.
In Ten Commandments what Judaism teaches is peace and Israel is doing quite the opposite. Israel carried out mass killing in 2008/2009 in Gaza and Lebanon. It carried out killings before this, and it continues to do so to this day. Gaza is like a concentration camp as some world leaders put it. Rev. Desmond Tutu called the treatment of Palestinians apartheid and a Jewish British MP said that Israel was behaving like Nazis see my earlier post
Israel is building settlements on land which belongs to Palestinians. That is definitely not the way to peaceful co-existence. When you take other people’s land and homes there will be reaction. Just think of it this way, if your neighbour plants a bush a few inches on your property how would you react? Now think of that neighbour taking over your home and pushing you into the shed. And then build a huge fence around that shed to keep you imprisoned in there. It is this kind of injustice that the Israeli government is perpetuating on the Palestinian people. As long as that goes on there is a very little chance for peace. Israel must obey UN resolutions and pull back to pre-war 1967 boundaries. This is essential for peaceful co-existence. The two state solution will be the solution and even leaders in Gaza have said, including Hamas, that they will fully recognize the existence of Israel if this happens. Those actions are needed for the sake of Israel, for the sake of Palestinians, and for the sake of peace.
