Fact is we can’t stop them. They all think they have a hotline to God, or Allah.
The Israeli part is so self-consumed it let 2000 years slip by without noticing, then came trotting back thinking the property they used to own still belonged to them. The Muslims sure-as-hell hate the Israeli ones, but they also hate one-another in-between times enough to make up for anything lost in the process.
Heck, maybe they’re all correct in their thinking. I’d sure as hell hate to have any of them for neighbors, though I’d have to be closer to the issue to know whether I’d want to kill them. I can sympathize with each group over there, though, and understand how they’d want to kill off all the others. Not because of what they believe doctrinally, but because of what they are.
What they are is a geographic conglomeration of kill crazy fanatics who have oil everyone used to need.
But everyone doesn’t need to need the lunatic oil source anymore. Recent oil discoveries just under Texas, alone, are enough to supply all the US energy needs, and the discoveries under the rest of the US should be able to supply the rest of the world.
No need to wring our hands about what the oil Sheiks and Chosen people do to one another. Just back off and let them do it.
If they want to get along with one another they can do it. Hell, they all come out of the same gene pool. They’re distant family.
But if they don’t want to get along, if they’d rather slaughter one another, and if no outsiders can ‘understand’ why enough to think of a way to stop them, is it wrong to allow them to do it? Stay out of the troubles they’ve made for themselves? Just let them settle the whole thing with a giant orgasm of bloodshed?
And is it wrong to believe it would be a relief to no longer have to hear, or think about them. Is it wrong to think maybe the rest of the world could get along peacefully if the Middle East were voluntarily and enthusiastically de-populated by its inhabitants?
Is it wrong that it’s actually a soothing, peaceful thought the world would have that particular brand of bullshit behind it?
