When is it enough? When is it over? When do we actually enjoy a full night of sleep without the worries and constant badgering of the wolves around you? Where are the voices that beat to the drum of peace yet insist on the status quo? Will the path to peace be through US or will be it through social contracts looking to create a truly people centric society that instils education, art, sciences, math, creativity, sports, and other aspirations?
The critics that speak stories of the past as if it’s easy to erase the damage at our expense without compensating or at the very least define the parameters of the dictated terms under the so call peace agreements. The peace agreements that’s failed us for decades, the failure to uphold international law, the failure to ensure a population is able to live in peace, the failure to ensure that generation of children don’t grow up to the sound of war, the failure to listen, the failure to hear the other side, the failure to open our minds, the failure to see through each others eyes, the failure to walk in each others shoes, the failure to understand each other, the failure to simply reach out and talk to us, the failure to communicate directly with us, the failure to open dialogue, the failure to simply say “enough” is “enough”! The failure is not just on the shoulders of the Israeli’s and Palestinians but rather the failure lies in the hand of the world governing body, the failure of the United Nations in ensuring a population lives in peace, security, harmony, justice, without oppression, the failure to release our prejudice towards one another, the failure to accept diversity, the failure of simply understanding one another as neighbors. That’s the failure of the world, the countries, the people, the countless number of oppression, the countless number of victims, the failure to look at them as people rather than just a number. That’s the failure of freedom that the world has not guaranteed the Palestinian people as whole world wide.
