    i have these rude awakenings! i lose track of the realities on the ground...the complete exerted effort to oppress the palestinians and prevent them from having possession of their OWN land. it's my STUPID optimism and my STUPID belief that people in general are basically good... but what i forget is that the essence of israel is NOT its people... it's an ideology that has no feelings...no conscience...and no humanity. it's policies have no room for it; they're cold, ruthless, calculating, and deceiving... and one more thing, too...it's one of hate! hate BEGETS hate...so can anyone wonder why things are as they are? and me? with each new awakening my soul grows more cold with "despise"...and with chagrin for ever thinking anything otherwise. israel is a state that's in a state of SIN! and NOTHING'S going to change it until humanity steps in... i don't like saying it...but it's true! more than just true; it's been proven over and over again!
