I just got in from a family gathering. During the afternoon, the adults were talking about this latest battle between Israel and Palestine. Towards the end of the heated discussion; my nephew asked me how come Israel gets to kill so many kids and nobody else is helping them?
This is the message the world is sending to the children of the world as long as it approves of what has happened.
He then asked me is Israel better than Palestine. He told me that kids at his school told him the reason Israel can do what it wants is because God loves them better than anyone else.
Honestly, I didn't know what to say and be gentle about it. So, I've decided to come to this list and ask everyone; is Israel better than anyone else; in this case Palestine? Does God really love Israeli better
than anyone else? Remember; I've got to keep this on an 8 year old's level of conversation.
How come Israel gets to have weapons of mass destruction; ie nuclear warheads and no one else in the Middle East gets to have them? How come they get to have and use a huge Air Force and tanks against a country that doesn't have one tank or jet fighter?
How come Israel gets as many weapons as they want; and they get to block all weapons into Palestine?
What makes Israelis more important or better than Palestinians?
My nephew asked me when did this fight start? So, I'm asking this group, when did this war start? At what
date did the first stone get thrown?
He asked how come Israel got to come into Palestine and steal all their stuff and not have to give it back?
What do I tell him?
So, I'm asking; when does Palestine get their stuff back?
Map attached 1945 Palestine....
For those who don't think Palestinians don't get to have restitution for the things Israel has taken from Palestinians; why not?
What exempts Israel from rule of law?
