<= Mr. Karl Vick
The September 13, 2010 issue of TIME Magazine arrived yesterday. The cover story is titled "Why Israel Doesn't Care About Peace" and is illustrated by a large Jewish star composed of daisies. Yes, daises—as in "counting daisies, don't have a care in the world."
This is precisely the point of Karl Vick's article. He writes:
Israelis are no longer preoccupied with the matter [of peace with the Palestinians]. They're otherwise engaged: They're making money; they're enjoying the rays of the late summer … they have moved on.
Vick quotes an Israeli real estate agent in Ashdod, one Eli, who tells him:
People are indifferent. They don't care if there's going to be war. They don't care if there's going to be peace. They don't care. They live in the day.
According to Vick, Israelis don't care about peace, peace negotiations, or about the Palestinians because they are simply having too good a time: sunbathing, swimming, café-hopping, profiting from start-up companies, and, according to polls cited by Vick, utterly disconnected from "politics;" indeed Vick suggests that Israelis resemble Californians more than they resemble Egyptians. These are all points which scream: Israel does not fit in; if Israelis were only more impoverished, more indolent, and paradoxically, even more "laid back," they might be recognizable as indigenous to the region, a true part of the Middle East.
These are Vick's thoughts, not mine.
Let's try to put some common sense on the mind of Mr. Vick:
1) Israel left Gaza at 2005
2) Israel willing to give piece of land for peace to the so called "Palestinians" also if Judea and Samaria are NOT occupied territories by Israel but the Arabs.
3) Just several days ago, the "Palestinians" stroke 2 terror attacks when the peace negotiations started in the U.S.
Mr. Vick, please wash your mind and tell us how can you say that "Israel doesn't care about peace?"
And I thought the media should be neutral in the news....
