Peace hinges on hopes for
the Palestinians and security for the Israelis, anything short of justice will
not produce sustainable peace. If Jews and Palestinians can take the position
that we cannot have peace when others around us don’t, and work on first
removing bias and stereotyping from their own minds, the conflicts will fade
and solutions will emerge.

What has Romney got to

He will say anything to get elected, including, “as a President I will declare
war on Iran on day one in my office and bombard them to smithereens.” When they
hear elimination of their perceived enemy, men like Adelson and their likes
will write big checks, they are good business men, the know the money will
recycle back to them via Aid to Israel, if Romney gets elected. Who are the
losers? It is the Average Israeli, Iranian, Palestinian, you and I who will pay
the price.

I have always taken a
stand for the Jews and their security, not at the cost of Justice to the
Palestinians, like some of my fellow Republican do, instead stand for what is
right and uphold the human rights.
The mess created by Prime
Minister Netanyahu and a few among the right wing Jews in the United States has
caused a lot of discomfort for the ordinary Jews, their policies are indeed
destructive to Israel in the long haul. Many Jewish Organization in the United
States are gathering momentum to do what is Jewish; Justice.
I wonder if men like
Netanyahu, Bill Crystal, Adleson and their likes existed before and if they
did, were their attitudes responsible for uprooting Jews in Spain, Germany
and other places?  These men are short-sighted and their
actions are directly responsible for building up Antisemitism around the world.
All of us should  stand up against  Anti-Semitism, Apartheid, racism,
Islamophobia, Gayphobia and other evils of the society. 
There is a shameful amount
of Anti-Semitism brewing, because Jews are perceived as taking advantages of
others like illegally grabbing the lands from Palestinians. However, it is not
Jews, who are wrong, it is a few right wingers among them. Indeed, they are
causing damage to Jews in decades to come.
They know what is wrong;
the violations of international laws, building settlements, throwing people out
of their homes and building their own homes  by vacating and
murdering the rightful owners of the land.  Whether God exists or not, the
people around the world know it is wrong and someone has to pay for it
someday’; it will be the ordinary, innocent Jews, as they have paid many times
before, and It is time to say enough is enough.
Men like Romney, Gingrich,
Santorum and others will say anything to get elected and tap in the Jewish
money, the cheap men will compete in licking Netanyahu’s boots. It is so
embarrassing to read our nominees licking the prime minister’s boots. Each one
is eager to give away more  (that’s what support means) than the other.
Romney blames Obama for
spending money on the health of Americans, whereas he is willing to spend the
money on war and destruction. Who will pay for this stupidity?
We cannot afford another
war and Romney is either duping the Israelis or does not give a flip about what
happens to American economy or Israel in the long run.
The Israelis need to wake
up from these fakes who are ruining their future. Netanyahu can bully around
and kill many more Palestinians or Iranians, but the blood of the people will
have a price; protracted insecurity to Jews living in Israel. I don’t think the
Right wing Jews see that, they are determined to teach a lesson without
worrying about the consequences. 
The law of karma works
very well, they will get away with murders today, but will pay for it in terms
of insecurity. Their attitudes is screw the ordinary Israelis and Americans, why should they bother about
the ordinary.
Instead of spending every
one’s time, money and energy in destroying Iran, if they can spend the same on
developing good relations with others, hostilities will mitigate. There is a
Chinese saying, if you want to take the enemy out for good, make friends with
them, on the other hand, if you overpower them today, you will not sleep well worried
sick about your own vulnerability. That is how the law of karma works.

The few hawks do not want to make peace with Iran or the Palestinians, which
means they will have to stop the aggressive theft of the Palestinian land, and
stop the settlements as alluded by Dani Dayan and stop milking America.

In the past, the tyrant
missionaries got away massacring the native tribes, the Hitlers,
 Ferdinands, Saddams, Asads and those crooks got away too. Are the Israeli
hawks thinking of doing the same to the Palestinians? Is the world going to sit
by and do nothing? Indeed they did nothing to stop the Holocaust till the tail
end of it. Are we going to pass the problems to over next generation?

If Israelis and Palestinians can demand accountability from their leaders
measurable by peace and security for both the peoples, then a lasting
sustainable peace is possible. The problem in not Jews or the Palestinians, it
is the right wing hawks on both sides.

A personal note: As a Republican, I am leaning towards Obama again, Romney seems to be an opportunist and not good for America, Israel, Palestine or any one. He is not a man of his own conscience, there was another one like him who played to someone else’s tunes. Obama has blundered, but he will not ruin America with another war.
