An interesting piece...


Yair Lapid wrote a very interesting piece entitled "Why They Love To Hate Us". Check it out:

One hundred years of conflict, 6.5 years of war, billions of wasted dollars, tens of thousands of people killed, not including the boy lying next to me on a rocky beach at Lake Karon in ’82, with his guts spilling out of his body. Both of us staring the wound until he was evacuated by helicopter. Until this day I do not know if he is alive or dead. All this, and it is still impossible to understand.

It’s not only what has happened. It is also what did not occur – the hospitals that were never built, the universities that never opened, the roads that were never paved, three years stolen from the lives of millions of young people in uniform. Despite everything, we are still clueless as to the core of the riddle.

Why do they hate us so much?

I am not talking about the Palestinians this time. The conflict with them is intimate, focused, and has a direct impact on their day to
day living. Without getting into who is right or wrong, it is clear their reasons for not wanting us here are very personal. We all know that in the end it will be resolved: Between us, in blood, sweat and tears that will soak the pages of the agreement that is signed. Until then, this is a war we can understand, even if no sane person can understand the way in which it is being waged.

But the others. They are impossible to understand. Why does Hassan Nasrallah - together with his tens of thousands of minions - dedicate his life and his considerable talent as well as the fate of his country in order to wage a war against a country that he has never seen, people he has never met and an army he has no reason to fight?

Why do children in Iran who cannot even point to Israel on a map (mostly because it is so small) burn its flag in the city square and volunteer to commit suicide in order to destroy it? Why do Egyptian and Jordanian intellectuals incite the naive and helpless against the peace treaties, knowing full well that revoking them will set their countries back 20 years.

    You and I had a discussion about this the other day. This is a good example of what I was talking about... a Jew who does not know his own place in the universe and how that affects the minds and "spirits" of the people around him. Has he never read the Jewish scriptures? Does he know nothing of history? Anthropolgy? Politics? Much less the occult, the esoteric and the metaphysical? That a Jew would even ask such a question sort of disturbs me as a Jew.

    The answer of course is complex and has many intertwining threads, but if you need a place to start just look at the name of the country in question... Iran.

    It means "land of the Aryans."

    Add millenia of Central and West Asian ethnic, religious and cultural clashes, misguided Arabism, radical Islam, organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood, the influence of Christian and European anti-Semitism and the Christian and Muslim propenstiy of mystical apocalypticism to that and you have a dangerous equation.

    They didn't wake up one morning and decide they hated Jews or wanted to destroy the state of Israel. It's not a mystery at all why they hate us. We need to stop being so surprised about this shit.
