Gaza Conflict -Innocent Civilians

Postby dolphinsiah » Wed Jul 30, 2014 11:27 am

The recent Gaza Conflicts has claimed many innocent lives. :sad:

I did not follow or understand the history of the Gaza Conflicts .

Just always hearing that this country or that country is being bombed.

First I have the impression it was the Israel fault.
My heart and mind was thinking Israel being such a strong country why on earth they are attacking this Palestinians?

But the more information I gathered is that actually there is this Group known as Hamas digging dozens of 'terror ' tunnels towards Israel border.

So who is right who is wrong??

Just feel pain for the Innocent Civilians living there. :scared:

The victims are so innocent in these war torn countries.
Really pity them.

I came across this on FB.

7 Things to Consider Before Choosing Sides in the Middle East Conflict

OK, I assumed the numbers mentioned are close to accurate.

Very difficult situation and it seems to me where there is only one solution as both group is hellbent on the total destruction of the other party.

I don't really believe 100% what I watch on tv or read in social media abt the Gaza crisis...Some were recycled images from other crises...Need satellite images to prove...
http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-28198622

This 'quarrel' has been going on and off for a few decades...I don't think we should take any sides. Just need to be aware that SG adopts an even-handed position will do.

=====
1. Israeli embassy in SG? - Yes
SG rep in Tel Aviv - Yes, in MFA

2. Diplomatic Relations w State of Palestine? - Not yet. BUT...we also support them in capability-building, anti-corruption, among others.

3. How we voted in 3 key UN resolutions

a. Palestine's International Recognition 2011 - SG voted No
b. Palestine's UNESCO membership voting 2011 - SG Abstained. Why?
c. Palestine's UN "non-member observer state" status voting 2012 - SG Abstained. Why? And to reply WP.



In short, we're pro-Peace. :xedfingers:

为什么人类不断的选择相信战争,当时联合国因犹太人在二次大战遭遇纳粹的屠杀,广泛的同情犹太人的处境,在英国有一个非常著名的复国运动,叫做锡安主义,就是犹太人应该建立自己的国家,而回到他们曾经所拥有的领土,特别是以耶路撒冷为主的领土,以色列这个国家,就在当时西方国家以及全世界人道对她的同情与支持之下正式复国了,可是他复国的土地上住着众多的巴勒斯坦人,也就是经过将近1000年这块土地早就不属于他们了,有新的住民,联合国的一张纸,联合国国际强权的决议,让这些巴勒斯坦人顿时之间完全失去了他们的家园。

It has been going on for centuries. Started with the crusades. Never really ended.
