War, Through My Eyes

Yes, im against war itself no matter with who or how.. after all, seeing a child all in his own blood isnt nice, in fact, the worst! and you wont care who that child is, you’ll help or at least feel pity..

The thing is, arabs and hizbullah thought that they “have the right” or “can” do whatever to israel cause Israel took arabs lands, and fought palestinians from the begining.. and Israel should feel guilty for all the past times and let them just do whatever..
at least this is not what i think and i dont care what you think of it..

well, My dad told me that his mother told him this story; she used to go to palestine to her uncel’s house, his wife used to ask her and the other family kids to take the eggs and sell them to Abu abdo or whoever the palestinian who had a small market.. she used to warn them if they saw any israeli not to sell him the eggs, if he wanted some he should’ve taken them from that market, she used to tell them “nomatter how high price he gives you, just dont” my grandmother said that they always saw some other kids who were waiting the israeli to sell the eggs to them in a very high price”

This is not a silly kids usual story, this is about something deeper; arabs somehow welcomed israel to be a country itself.. that story talked about some eggs, i can tell you other stories that you may already know about real estates.. i guess you know what i mean.. it started with greedy eggs and grew old, actually very old, to be an evil chicken.. but wait a minute; who fed that chicken? yes!
how can we now blame others? no one is responsible for your misery or happiness, you are.

Maybe im the most one who hates whats happening in lebanon, not because i have a friend there who i check on everyday, but because how pathetic and harsh is the lesson that will never be learned.. i feel so anger how arabs got to this point, how greedy arrogant they are.. no one is innocent but those children who still has no power to defend themselves, to say NO! or to stop this sarcasm..

I really hope next generation will be more resposible.. more mature, less greedy and less absent.. Once again i cant but hope🙂

God Bless All Children All Over the World, for they are the only victims…

PEOPLE OUT THERE, IF YOU DIDNT GET WHAT I SAID BEFORE; i have to say it again; im against war in all its shapes and forms and reasons!! against killing people and children.. totally against! ok??

  1. The arab states have a respnsibility, but they don’t act upon it, I suppose theoreticaly speaking of the arab state combined effort and forces they can launch a war against isreal and maybe even win it, Saudi arabia alone spent 2+ Billion dollars on arms last year, and for what, to what purpose? to fight whom?

    I know there are much at stake, the nature of relations between the arab states and the U.S at one side and the and the racist U.S bias towards Israel on the other side make this impossbile, but still it does not releive arabs as a whole and indeed the islamic nation from its duty.

    it is sad but true, the arab league has no political weight whatsoever, and the military option is naturaly out of the question for them. so what is there to be done?

  2. I think it’s a shame for someone who actually wears a headscarf and claims to adhere to Islamic teachings to have so much hate and racism festering inside of them for no apparent reason except silly childhood stories passed on from equally hateful and racist parents and grandparents..do us all a favor, and shut the hell up, the least we need at this time is someone to preach about love and honor when they are nothing but lying hypocrites..

  3. Palestinian; really pathetic what you have inside your head… by the way, my gradmother is palestinian.. and your comment were in moderation and i accepted it so people can have one more reason why this is all heppening to arab world.
    by the way, i really dont know what my parents really think of all this, they are against war on lebanon,, me too. but maybe they dont think that arab caused that to themselves where i think so..
    mama almost cry about whats happening in lebanon.

  4. Oh dear God, and i am supposed to fall on my knees and praise your blessedness and throw rose petals around you because your grandmother is palestinian?

    The only reason this is happening in the arab world is because we have people like you infiltrating between us and sending messages of indiscriminate hate and racism regardless of their place of origin..

    You don’t need to know what your parents think of all this, what they lovedly pass on to you doesn’t need to be known or spoken for you to catch it..after all, you don’t need to know someone has a disease for you to catch it..right?

    Your mama almost cried?..now that’s PATHETIC of you!

  5. you’re really pathetic!! so its all becase of israel! arabs all didnt sell a meter of their lands and didnt accept anything of that but it just happened?? what are you talkin about??? or are you one of those who blame others for everything!! dont argue of whats obvious!! alot of arabs themselves admit that its their fault!!
    comeon!! dont make me laugh now of how childish you are! you’re one of those who if the sky wasnt too blue they blame israel, if nancy ajram or ellisa fell on the stage they say israel is the reason, if the gum is too expensive they say it has some special ingredients to destroy arabs and its from israel!! (which really happened from some people!) gorw up and wake up alil bit to see, sleepers are so blind! listen to what mature people say, listen to some lebanese songs from majeda al roume that tells what really happened. ya beirout song is amazing. says it all!

    FYI if you will talk another word with your sarcasm and silly way i wont accept your comments! talk like a mature instead of making less of people, or you think you do.. you think people out there are too silly to find you reasonable? huh!

  6. Im sure all of us are against Israel and whats hapenning in Lebanon, but the question is why did all of that happen? who caused it?

    I think that Hizbollah did, i think that they dragged their country in to a war that they are not ready to they repeated the scenario of Iraq and Saddam Hussein, i feel sorry for lebanon, im not sure who caused the war is it hizbollah or is it Israel or is it Hizbollah and Israel in order to have an execuse to hit lebanon and reach to syria in the way to constitute “al Hilal al shee3y” well im confused about it, its politics no one knows the truth and what we c definitley isnt the truth, its different from whats happeneng behinf the scenes, but the victims untill now are the lebanease people. God Bless u Lebanon and the Arab World.

  7. Palestinian,

    Racism has nothing to do with it, it is you that advocate racism with such insulting remarks, Or do you consider expressing one’s own thoughts and analysis of a situation that is a fact and agreed upon by almost everyone racism? do you really beleive that the current situation of Palestine would have gotten into its current state if the arab nations had intervened properly at the right time and with proper measures? also, it is true that Israel took by force large amounts of land, but it is also a known fact that many have sold land to Israel, inside Palestine and Outside, don’t try to deny that, it happened.

    Furthermore, I would suggest that instead of using big words in order to try and make yourself look like an intelligent person, that you present a valid reasonable argument, but it would seem that you lack this ability. insulting people and calling them names is not an argument, it is only a sign of weakness and ingnorance, if you have something productive and viable to say then by all means lets hear it, otherwise hold your peace.

  8. Durra Hashem said: “Im sure all of us are against Israel…” and I am asking myself why? Would we all be better of thinking more positively? I am an Israeli and i am all for Lebanon! I think it is a great country with great people and I hope that one day I’ll be able to visit my friends there and they will come to visit me in Tel-Aviv. Israel is here to stay and it would be rather naive to think that it is possible to wipe it out (well you can of course nuke it, but most probably than not only Israel will have to go). So, what good will it do thinking about how you destroy Israel instead of thinking how do we all learn to live together?

    Mybe my questions above sound naive, but i see more logic in them than in the childish claim of Hizballah to destroy Israel. No one gains from such hate-absed and blind claims except for the Hisballah elitte, who make their living on other people’s misery.

  9. Oracle thanks alot for the comment and you’re welcome here, tho some ppl would kill me now :p
    i appreciate that you’re with lebanon, cant you people there force your government to stop all that?? and maybe hizbullah should too.. i hope all this war will end and all will live together.. thats the way it was thousands years ago..
    God Bless All..

    Durra Hashem thanks for your opinion..

    Bakkouz thanks..

  10. Palestinian: what the stories that u’ll tell to ur grandson’s? plz be open minded and if arabs were with islam, islam wont disappoint them but they left it.and plz tell me what do u think of the meeting for the arab “MUSLIMS” prime ministers?

  11. Palestinian (so-called) “I think it’s a shame for someone who actually wears a headscarf and claims to adhere to Islamic teachings to have so much hate and racism festering inside of them for no apparent reason”

    If you walk down the Wihdat refugee camp, or any other refugee camp for that matter, where people have lived a miserable life and have sordid memories of ethnic cleansing committed by jews, brace yourself for what you call “hate and racism ”

    I guess to people like you, it does not matter that so many arabs have suffered from jewish brutality, to you it does not matter that israelis as we speak are killing innocents and destrying two countries and two nations. all you care about is to fish for the angry words of a violated people. I could care less what any arab who witnessed first hand jewish brutality. i owe them to understand their anger, even if i don’t agree with their generalizations. you on the other hand are a callous, insensitive, self-absorbed person, plestinian or not. all you need is an ounce of empathy to understand that those who suffer for so long don’t always have the luxury of loving those who have and continue to cause them great physical and emotional harm.

  12. Oracle you are right in one thing we have to think more positively and that would be “how can we kickout the israelians from Palestine and end their occupation?” maybe you can save your feelings towards lebanon to your self, you should be ashamed from your country and what they are doing in Lebanon and Palestine but you have the ability to say that you love Lebanon!!!!!! thats really funny and naive. and the question of how can we learn to live together is even more naive, coz thats impossible and we will never learn to do that that has been our history and it is our future as well, and though i donot support Hizbullah i cannot accept what u said that they are making their living from aother people misery coz you are discribing the israelians by that. i think you should step aside and be quite.

    and Janoz please talk about your self dont welcome anybody on behalf of others

  13. Durra Hashem; first of all, “Oracle” isnt the israeli government, alot of israelis are against their governments.. he/she was so nice here, and showed good feelings toward arabs and lebanon specifically..
    and im free to welcome anyone i want here, its MY OWN blog! ok? speak nicely or never come back!

  14. Great Post Jano, I have to say I am against any government that thinks that war with all the killing is the only way to peace. We are all God’s children and by following what God wants, there would not be war. The people I believe all want to live in peace and harmony. It is to bad to me that the governments of the world cannot see this. Get rid of the hatred and anger and start talking to each other. Keep an open mind towards others and maybe things can get better. I have made many friends over the internet from other countries and if we can get along, Then why not everyone get along? Keep our faith in God and maybe things will improve. The governments that cause all this is not the people who strive each day to make a better world for their families and children. The children our the future for all of us. If we cannot show them the way to peace, how are they to know what is right? Good story Jano.

  15. Thank you janoz for the warm welcome. I think it is great that we have the internet where we can express ourselves, argue and actually try and understand each other even if the countries are at war. This is why i actually would like to use the opportunity to ask Durra Hashem about the living together concept. Why “thats impossible and we will never learn to do that that has been our history and it is our future as well”? To a certain extend i can accept that “that has been our history” (mostly the recent one) and maybe the present, but why “it is our future as well”? I don’t know you, you don’t know me, but for some unclear reason you already hate me. Why? I am really willing to learn…

    As to your question janoz, “cant you people there force your government to stop all that??”, I am afraid that at the current stage not much can be done. Well there are voices in press criticizing what is happening (for example see this: http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/738739.html), but the general public opinion is very supportive of the military at this stage. If you’d like, i could probably try explaining how this support evolved (of course how it looks like from where i am).

  16. Chet, you’re one of the very few people who got my point i guess.. thank you so much for your comment.. its so rich..
    May Allah be with children and coming generations as their parents might also have been visctims of their parents..
    Allah bless all..

  17. Oracle; i would like to know, really, i mean about why they support their government, till now i read the introduction of the article you gave me the link of..
    i know that governments arent people themselves..

    how is there where you live?

  18. Dearest Jano – I can only echo you!! What is happening in Lebanon now is nothing short of a genocide, creating more and more what we do NOT need but is understandable … blazing hatred! I read a comment at another blog (http://crazyblueh.blogspot.com/) which said
    “…A christian lebanese man said to french tv after bombings in his neihbour hood -where is the hizbollah here? there’s none! But believe me when I say we are ALL hizbollah now!”
    Just guess what world we leave for our children? How our children grow up? BY GOD in essence we are ALL the same and CAN get along … nobody should tell me anything else, the Soccer World Championship was the best example!! If there are differences – and there will ALWAYS be differences – what’s the problem to sit down and discuss it? NOBODY will get 100% of what he wants, EVERYBODY will have to compromise .. that’s just the way it is!
    The earlier our big-heads will get this in their heads, the earlier we can make this world to what we WANT it to be – OUR HOME!!

  19. Dear Jano,

    This war is not about Hezbollah anymore

    It’s war of the pride.

    If you have a sister or brother in the Israeli prison, and you know he/she being tortured for no crime, then you will give execuses.

    Besides,
    Hezbollah are targetting Military targets and all about self-defense. so please think twice.

    We’re all against war, but we have no choice, we should get our children from the Israeli prisons. and there’s no other way.

  20. i understand, but as i said im so angry of old people who were there when israel first tried to harm them! where were they? i dont wanna say it to avoid hurting some ppl but they were busy giving eggs maybe..
    i really hate whats happening thats why i said all above.. i saw in a blog those kids all on the ground one of them without his arm😦 who is the F***ing responsible?? should we always blame others? i doubt😦
    i dont wanna compare but till now we blame our ancestors why they let themselves be forced to leave their land! tho they fought hundreds of years, all together, all books says that russian cizer couldnt get one inch of the land till after hundrends of years.. after all that, we feel angry why we were forced to leave.. alot of them threw themselves in the black sea while watching themselves been dragged away from their lands on the ship.. alot of them been eaten by sharks when they threw themselves… and alot were killed cuz they didnt move a step toward the ship.. i know how it feels to be oppressed and aggrieved.. i know how it felt when i went back there to my homeland and kissed the land.. its something more than anyone can ever imagine, thats why we blame our ancestors yet we are so proud of them for fighting hundreds of years and never bent down.. ever.

    See now? im not against a nation or have hatred against anyone, but i feel so pitty for those kids and women.. someone of their grand grandparents was responsible years ago and now they are all paying the price.. governments and their greed..

    i dont hate but i blame and angry at..

    God Bless All and Peace Upon All

  21. Well I must say reading some comments here and it is just unbelievable responsed and hate.
    As one who lived in free society I’m free to talk and express my thinking, however as our excelent education we always respect other and well distinguish between true to lies.
    I will criticised my society if I think we doing wrong
    with no fear. is it the same in Arab society?
    few things that you never thought about your enemy.
    here one of many examples:
    Arab girl in Israel who had Arab boy friend, had threat to her life from her own family.
    Police officer understand the situation and help her
    by finding a jewish family to take care of her.
    The jewish family treat her well, providing education
    medical services access and the most important family feeling.
    her anger family after word found her and brutality
    killed her, her own family who supposed to protect
    her killed her.
    Lets face the trueth For many years the Arab control
    their life in their viliges with no any Israeli interference, billions of dollars donated even by Israeli government, the palastinient corrupted leaders
    still put the blames on Israel while they reach their
    pockets.
    I guess it is just easy and convinient to find someone to blame for, who better then Israeli to be blamed, you got 100% agreement for that.
    One thing that catch my eyes how arabs kidds
    brain washed for hate, this is something you never
    see in Israeli society we never teached to hate
    good example – look how good medical treatment
    those who came to suicide and got fault and injured
    he got the best medical treatment to save his life,
    in contrary we all witnesses how brutaly 2 soldiers
    killed and murdered when theu mistaken in the road
    to arab teritory.

  22. HA; thanks alot for the comment, i really thought some people would see it from the other side.. or at least from mine:/
    someone blaming himself at least once in a lifetime is healthy.
    and one more thing that people may not know is governments arent the people, and in every nation there is the good and the bad.. some israelis hate arabs and some arabs hate israelis.. it doesnt mean hate is normal..

  23. What i think jano, is you will find an angry, insulted israeli blaming the arabs and whining about their insecurity evrywhere.
    On every blog. Hence it is a bad reason to welcome him, and i apreciate a critical move, like Durra comments.

    The situation from a viewpoint in the christianoform culture is very hard to exactly grasp.

    In fact i always have comment on every mine comments. Yesterday (19-6) i realised that hezbollah in fact may just want to finally free the palestineans from israeli torture prisons. I didn’t write about that in dutch yet.

    However a problem is i don’t understand the notion of islam in all thism much. Islam is a very scary religion from a distance.
    With everything happening on this planet, living at the top of our energetic growth (oil consumption) the possible top of our scientific research, in a world or worldwide communications, were all can talk.. what does religion have to do with it.

    Gristians overhere are generally old or wacky.
    My generation on ppl (todays -parents) we have children late, don’t necessarily marrie, raise children on our own, and live with all the problem it causes.

    I can regard it a colonialist move. saying islam is no good either, where it not even got a chance to proof herself in the industrial era, and actually i do think that. When i look at iraq i realise islamism cannot provide a safety solution for her people.

    Like every belief it seems it make people belief propaganda easier. (that is my opinion about sectarian violence in irak. I don’t blame people for that.)

    Also , it seems, and it is perhaps overly neutral and biased to say so, that through the colonialist conspiracy the non-western beliefsystem(s) have not been lead to perform the better.

    So actually the struggle is cultural and not religious.
    Then: we can be united?

  24. onix thanks alot for the comment;
    i need to say somethings in general and related to what you said above, the problem that people or most of them dont understand is that Islam is something different that what Alot of Muslims do these days, with alot of things, ppl in west think that whats happening in palestine or Iraq or lebanon is because of Islam or relgion, where most of people here dont act with what Islam said.. the same thing to people everywhere, where alot of christians arent what their relgion says, nothing at all.. its too sad i know because all religions are against killing people..
    also the same thing with nations and governments and cultures, those are way different that each others, people and nations arent the same as governemts, people everywhere are against wars but gov’s are with it and start it but never ends it.. cultures are in some places of the world even worse than governments and their greed, cultures can make a misery you know, because in Iraq, most of the problems are because of differences.. and when you grow up with the same thing and talk around you , you just start teaching it to others and spread hate or in some cases love..
    if people themselves had some global ethics which talks about RESPECT and only respect, then you wont see any hate or war..
    all the time when i think of any problem or war or anything bad with people i find the respect is the only solution..
    if you respect the other you may understand him better and love more.. then peace will come by itself..

  25. the only thing that i can tell you is i wonder how lazy arabs are and how fool they are.let me tell you that when i say arab i don’t mean palestinian , lebanies ,syrian or egyptians because i don’t believe that they are arab acoording to history.let me tell you what happened to iran during 8 years of war against iraq(or may be i should say against US and europe).after islamic republic victory Us made damn saddam hussain attack our country, at that time you couldn’t find a man all around iran except in khousestan province because they were all gathered there to defend their country .they were from age 11 to … .and every soldures of us that was killed people in iraq were celebrating and dancing and didn’t understand that a moslem had been killed.actually at that time i was just a baby what i said is according what olders are saying.when i became older i could understand by myself.my grandma was living in a valley that all neighbours were jews(the most coward and chiken hearted people in iran).i saw them all left .you know were they went.how palestinians let them intrude their land is the question.they let them in by having no unity.and now those jews that were scared when they were seeing blod of their own injuries are killing childs and women and… .now i am saying to people from nile to forat be more careful about what is happening in your country because israel is going to be a country from nile to forat and creat new midle east.

  27. I know im late to write comment on this..or actually reading the post, i was just surfing the archieve and found it. At the time jano posted this i was busy counting the Israeli missiles falling just a couple of miles away from me. Ive read every comment up here and i discovered how people get to be conditioned or simply get overwhelmed by the media.

    To Oracle i would say, i hope he\she gets to read it. The day is not far off when you can come to Beirut freely and i go to Tel Aviv as free, but that doesnt depend on our states, it depends on few lunatics like the both of us who can hardly see any point in fighting, i have suffered Israeli war, and i know Israel has been a terrorist state, i ascertain that well, I have lived almost 30 days in the last war here, i was in lebanon and the aggression of Israei army is tremendously unbelieveble and the whole world saw it, even though the most powerful media companies did their best to present Israel as a victim and Hizbulla as the invador and attacker, thats not the case !! Oracle , im not the one who think Israel should be wiped out like few mad voices here and there, but lets face it…u were asking (So, what good will it do thinking about how you destroy Israel instead of thinking how do we all learn to live together?)
    you were wondering if your question sounds naive, im sad to say it, but it obviously does sound naive, not to me…but to your own state, the state that believe in nothing but murder, are they willing to drop their racist back grounds and make friends with lebanese ?? i doubt it…you might be thinking now im one of those Hizbulla supporters, let me make it clear, Hizbulla is a re-action, its a by-product, when Israel invaded Lebanon back in the seventies Hizbulla was not yet born, it was not even in the womb !! so lets remove the cause and the effect will be removed simultaneously, yes Hizbulla sent missiles to Israel, which doesnt make me feel good as those missiles that were thrown on lebanon by Israelis, but was there another alternative ?? be objective, im not saying one atrocity justifies another, but that what always happen in the sick world of politics, this seems to be the rule, all the talks about the International Security Council stopping the war in lebanon months ago is pure nonesense, what stopped the war is the resistence that hizbulla made, i know this sounds harsh and im not in support of it, but thats the fact that happened.
    In fact i share jano’s vision as far as war is concerned, to fight is a very primordial and primitive, its f**king crude !! theres no reason, so i guess jano is right, you Israelis should pressure more on your state, its about time, the time is ripe to try a new approach, violence has never succeeded in solving any problems, Israel failed to destroy Hizbulla, and even if they succeeded, another resistence will pop up out of nowhere, and this whole futile game will continue, so you pressure your goverment, and make sure the day Hizbulla thinks of wiping Israel out i will be the first lebanese to protest again it, but i know this is not its agenda, though, thats what most people think, i dont like hizbulla, but what hizbulla did was a must to stop the war, i dont like the Israel government either, i love concrete human beings, i dont care where they come from.

    I believe Arab cant be blamed here, Israel was finished with egypt, Jordan and Syria is 6 days !! just like the story of god when he created the world is 6 days, so israelis must have rested on the seventh day !!
    arabs in short are like ( do whatever u will, just leave us alone )

    lebanon is a difficult matter, still i see a way out of all this, as i said earlier, Remove the cause, the effect is gone accordingly.
    I hope this will never happen again , and i hope all of you people reading this will not come to experience such war as long as you live, its the sickest expereince one can have, its just ugly, and by the way i would like to thank you jano for sticking to me and checking on me in the war time, that meant alot to me and i believe i’ll always be grateful for that.
    thank you
