Palestine Chronicle: How Impunity Defines.....
March 27th, 2016
Reflecting on this specific news article, I wanted to start off with a poem that was included in the article which depicts a violent scene of an Israeli harming a Palestinian.
A lad bold and armed, a young lion of a lad!
It was written in 1948 and almost 70 years later, this vivid description of an Israeli receiving joy from killing an innocent Palestinian is still seen today. The continuing conflict between the Israeli and Palestinian has only lead to both sides of the court to be immune to killings, seeing it as a normative way of living in this part of the world. How can a conflict between individuals have grown into the civilizations being so immune to the deaths of thousands of individuals? Hearing about an loved one, a friend, a teacher, a child, being killed is nothing new to these people, and more specifically towards the Palestinians.
This article I read was found on the PalestineChronicle.com, which by telling by the name of the news site it is more biased to those of the Palestinian race. Which personally, how can you not understand the brutal events that are obviously happening more towards Pakistanis than Israelis.
More young children, babies, kids who have not even had the opportunity of started their primary education, are more likely to be killed than an Israeli solider.
The writer, Ramzy Baroud, also stressed on how no one is being held accountable for the deaths of the Palestinians, absolutely no one. We know who unnecessarily killed these people, the Israeli Army, and yet there is nothing being done to them but a pat on the back from supporters who believe this is how fighting should be done.
The killing, bombing, destruction, of innocent lives whether Palestinians, and maybe even a few Israelis, need to be address more. Destroying lives for the account of own selfishness is not a reasonable way to be living.
