The Heathen in me


In the middle of a quagmire, where the tussle between religion and territorial control seems to sink the already crestfallen population further, it is people like me who are seemly confused, if not trying hard to rationalize the whole thing. I am a heathen – alright! May be I am really a heathen of convenience. That’s just to give you an idea of who these seemly confabulated people are that I am talking about.

This post is not to condone the kidnapping of 2 Israeli soldiers by Hezbollah. This post is not to condone the irrelevant and inhuman suicide bombings that have become a routine in Palestine or the Gaza strip or the West bank. This is definitely not to condone any kind of dastardly killings that are carried out by any group with any religious affiliation in any part of the world.

Anti-semitism probably has taken a new meaning in the western world for all inexplicable reasons. Makes me wonder why Anti-Hinduism or Anti-Islam or Anti-Buddhism doesn’t get you the front page as much as Anti-Semitism does? All it takes is to talk to a Jew or talk about a Jew in a loud voice to be called an anti-semitic.

Ok..the last point was just to highlight my point before. But the fact remains that it is a highly biased western world – one that is clearly biased towards Jews and Israel.

Why is the world – read that as the western world – or better yet read that as the “US”..simply watching the brutal killings of thousands of innocent Lebanonites and the slow but rapid destruction of the entire country’s economy that took 20 years to build from scratch? (recovering from going down the abyss of yet another destruction spree two decades ago). For “reasons” that “people” like me fail to fathom every time we think about it.

Didn’t the US see a “Qana” coming? Didn’t a president who has been in one of the most reckless wars in the recent memory, killing innocent people himself for some personal vengeance, know better than this as to what the outcome from such uninvited attacks on civilian population would be? Or at least for argumentative fun, Shouldn’t something have been done after 37 children were killed for no fault of theirs?

Cease fire that will work is what the US is for. Yeah right.
Even the Judaist in me knows what that means!

Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!

One thought on “The Heathen in me

  1. Anti-Semitism does occupy more headline space than any other anti-(s) coined in the English language. The media is driven, propelled, thrust down the people by the Americans than any other country of the world in the name of free press, freedom of speech etc. I am not condoning the concept of free press but the way it is been used by the America to drive and show their interest.
    Their interest is JEWS. During World War II, many of the Jews from Europe settled in the US and it is a know fact that most the America is made by the migrant population and of that a bigger chuck done by the Jews. So the Jews sentiment has tied down many a America presidents likes the secularism sentiments has tied down the Indian prime ministers in wooing may a minority communities at the expense of the majority interest.
    That is the reason why America is rallying behind the Israelis and following a dual agenda and brings misery down the people of the earth in various forms.
    These are my personal opinions and may be in correct in my assessment and these are purely my views and not the entity hosting this site / page.
