Muslims condemn Hamas attacks and Israeli Pounding
Dallas, Texas: November 19, 2012.
Mike Ghouse, “The long term security of Israelis hinge on justice to the Palestinians, and peace to the Palestinians depends on the safety of Israelis. One will not happen without the other. In light of accomplishing the twin goal, both parties have failed.”
What was Prime Minister Netanyahu doing all these months, instead of initiating a dialogue he chose to pound Gaza; did he think that the missiles will stop reigning on their own? The illegal settlements and lawlessness has to stop; it brings despair to the Palestinians who want peace. The brutal retaliation needs to stop, it is a burden that the Prime Minister may escape but the Israelis will have to carry it on their psyche for generations to come. Is that the kind of Nation Israelis want? Does violence solve the problems, has it ever?
Call for action.
The actions of Hamas are unforgivable, and I appeal to the thoughtful among you, did we give them choices to act differently? A full article is pending publication entitled Security for Israel and Justice for the Palestinians.
The United Nations need to call for an immediate cease-fire; both parties need to hold the fire.
The two state solutions is the way to go forward and one of the most fundamental items to be included in the transaction is to develop a school curriculum without malice towards each other. A new generation must be raised with hope and goodwill, so they can live in peace and prosperity. This should be an uncompromising goal.
