When cannibals don't seem bad all of a sudden


They say what starts on blood, can only feed on blood. The Israelis have beaten the cannibals, while the later take a life to feed on, the formers take lives and keep on taking lives for the sick nature of their being.

60 Palestinian have been killed within 24 hours. Everybody is silent. The so-much-civilized world all of a sudden falls asleep amid all the killings of innocents in Gaza. Why should they care if the Arab world doesn’t care?

In case somebody is wondering about the photo of the dead child, no, he wasn’t killed by a terrorist attack; he was only five months old when he was killed, among many others by a democratic country supported by a western world so full of hypocrisy and double-standards and an Arab world so full of betrayal and cowardice.

Good luck Gazans. You are on your own. We are busy; we have freedom of speech to defend in Europe, imaginary terrorist plots to halt in the US and royal and presidential chairs to save in the Arab world.

their bank accounts,their chairs, their thrones, their kingdomes, no matter how small the land they will rule in the future after the new american middle east map, or how small the amount of money they will recieve, these are what they care for.

and i too feel sick of myself, i feel sick everytime i watch these blood, coz the first idea it occurs to me when i watch them: what were i doing when they were killed?
i'm always asleep , deep asleep, while they are being murdered.

I have nothing worthy to say. I feel so bitter the only way to keep my sanity is to force myself to look the other way.
Yet, being a firm believer that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, I know that someone (may be innocent bystanders + the culprits) will eventually pay for these atrocities. The longer it takes to get back with the "tooth for a tooth" the more devastating the consequences are going to be.
"Revenge is a dish best served cold". I might not condone revenge intelectually but on the personal human instinctive level I can't be a hypocrite when it actually happens one day. And rest assured, it will.

I couldn't have said it better my self. Although I'm not sure who to blame. I look around me and I see more people interested in the colour of Paris Hilton's underwear, than in what's happening in the world. The media here is killing me. The bias is clearer than daylight and yet the masses still believe in everything that Fox and CNN tell them.

Meanwhile "our" leaders are fueding about whether to have a summit or not in Damascus, as if the summits ever produced anything. On the bright side, at least Annapolis was a success.

My blog is about Syria and yet I keep posting on Palestine. Palestine is Syria too and so is Lebanon and Iraq and Egypt. Their tragedies are ours.
