    Subject: when the rays touched the dream
    Date: Nov 28, 2005
    Sender: DanyaPrevious | Next

    It could be true that I donât have a strong back round on politics, clearly because I am not studying politics, but I am studying a rather important field for me to analyse and interpret the difference between the right path, and the easy one. Last night I saw the documentary by Yoav Shamir, and it is quit obvious that the research done behind the realisation of this documentary was not strong. But perhaps one should go back to history and analyse, rather than simply focusing on one side. I already said that I donât have a strong back round on politics, but I have all the tools to start a research, and that is what I did, however my research has been going on long before that documentary. I would ask of all of you, on not to jump to conclusions, and be one sided only because ăI am Jewishä or ăthey are my peopleä do it for you re own sake, and the sake of truth. I will not start with Palestinians, but I well start with their land, IT IS THEIR LAND, Ashkenazi came out of Europe and did the exact same mistake the Nazis did, one sabotaged fellow humans, destroyed property, and tortured hearts of innocent people. We all know about that cup of water that ran out of space, and started to drip all over the carpet and you ask why Palestinians are having a vulgar demeanour. YOU MADE THEM ACT THIS WAY, YOU GOT THEM TO THE POINT OF SUCH TORTURE AND THE NON BELIEVE OF A GOD BECAUSE OF YOU RE SULFISH, NON-HEARTED, UNETHICAL WAYS, and you have the nerves to ask why? Extremely contradictory to me; I went to Lebanon a summer ago, of course being a Canadian, it was difficult to understand the culture completely, and especially that I went alone, but it would get to that point of humiliation, that Palestinians are no even allowed to travel around is just very disturbing to me. Palestinians are being tossed around like a base ball, and you find it strange that suicidal attacks is the way they manifest their anger, a volcano needs to release some anger, how do u expect Palestinians to react, oooohhhhh·maybe just die in silence, and then the truth about you re chilling massacres will sees to exist. Personally, I am not with or against anyone, I very well realise that there are good and bad among all creatures, but people see what kind of suffering Palestinians go through and no one is able to stop the inhumanity. So Mr.Koch, I agree that the whole filming could have been an act, especially to idiotic Israeli solders, but the fear is the same, and Palestinians DID take it as an opportunity to have a faster way to pass the gait. I wonder if you see how much Israelis think of people as idiots, the chief of solders whispers something the ear of his solder, most probably telling him to lay off in front of the camera, and pretends that we are stupid. I donât know about you, but it did not need an Einstein to realise that. So ··think about it·..the rays WILL NEVER touch the dreams.
