The bombing of the Russian airliner reflects the long conflict between Islamic extremists and Egypt that has spread south to the coastal fantasy land.21:26 25.11.15 | 0 comments
I'm pretty far left, yet I also believe strongly in hearing all sides (I have spent significant time talking to settlers). I think for a while in my life I had never actually heard settlers' POV, so I at least agree that there is a lack understanding among liberals about what many settlers believe. To give examples, after meeting with settlers, it's started to dawn on me that there were Jews living in the West Bank before 1948 (or 1929), and that many areas very holy to Judaism are there. That being said, I still am against Palestinians being controlled without suffrage, having severe restriction of movement, being violently attacked by the more extremist of the settler movement, etc, and I also believe Palestinians simply deserve a homeland of their own, even if us Jews also view some of those areas as holy. But this is why, I think, even as a leftist myself, I think hearing the other side can help enrich your viewpoint. If you're worried that they will put false lies/propaganda supporting the settlements into Wikipedia, that's stupid to worry about, because us leftists will come and get the admins to edit it out of Wikipedia.
