Hatred inherited generation by generation brews conflict, ravaging society with a plague of antagonism. The Middle East, in particular the Israeli/Palestinian region has unfortunately been a ground for larger powers to flex their muscles rather than the local residents who are suffering, victims of the testing conditions.
Nationalities may create a flag for people to identify themselves with, acting as a banner that leads them through the light of the day and the darkness of night. But if we ponder for a moment, how has humanity managed to civilise and evolve over the centuries without a concrete nation/border? Porous nations with larger banners representing philosophical movements may sacrifice the potential to manage its larger populations but order still remained. Culture, arts, technologies still developed and we still identify much of the past as “classical”, timeless eras which we will continually return to in practice.
I fully appreciate it will be relatively very easy for me to make my next point as the Palestinian nationality isn’t something I own. However for the greater good of humanity is it really a bad thing if this nationality is sacrificed for the birth of a widely accepted Israel? Let me make it clear, I do not condone the manner within which the state was established but when the world had its chance to prevent the occurence, it lost. There isn’t one Jewish state in this world but the growing need for a state is supported by the distinction between the Hebrew and Jewish community. Hebrew being the language such as English, is the large branch under which the Jewish now sits. Not every resident in England can be identified as a Christian, so we refer to all those people from England as English. Now within the Hebrew community the demographics now cater for atheist, Sikh and Buddhist Hebrews. This growing community now has a greater case to remain in the land which they have claimed as squatters just in the same manner the American, Canadian or even Australian nations were established. Now if hypothetically if the state was accepted worldwide, what need would arise for there to be conflict? Decades of enmity could be wiped away. On the premise that the indigenous Palestinians are treated as equals in society, receive full representation in parliament and are compensated with some form of remuneration for the land and identity they would forgive for the establishment of a Hebrew democracy. The new settlers are not planning to burn the place into ruins and desecrate any existing landmarks. They want to create a sophisticated and civilised home open to visitors too.
Now this is only an idea, it needs work and is open to be scrutinised. I am not claiming to be the bastion of righteousness but I’m only proposing a solution I see minimising casualties and providing an avenue for life to rejuvenated into corpses, quickly. It’s too late to turn back and the current circumstances would only permit the he Palestinians to be ‘gifted’ sovereignty over their refugee camps. They need to cut their losses short otherwise they’ll end up a completely masticated group of people sensitised to harshness and failure, struggling to even find a glimmer of peace in their own dwellings.
Now we could give up nations and borders as fences are only drawn up to keep intruders out. But I think that’s a mouthful of a demand where in some parts of the world the polio vaccine has the power to strip you of your religion.
