Pursuing Peace and Prosperity: Israel's Path Forward

Updated: Oct 24, 2023

Nations frequently find themselves at a fork in the path when faced with hardship and strife. A crucial issue has once again come to light as a result of the recent occurrences in Israel and Gaza: How should a country react in trying circumstances? It is crucial to refute the notion that when something bad happens, governments may turn to destructive measures.

It is vital to remember after a terrible experience that using military munitions on children or waging wars of aggression are just as wrong now as they were yesterday. It is not only ethically repugnant but also ineffective for a nation to go on a violent rampage in the face of hardship.

It's important to note that we do not support irrational behavior in the midst of difficulty in other spheres of life. Because of a personal setback, a normal individual cannot use violence or harm others. No matter what challenges someone may be facing, the rules still apply to everyone. These are the times when family, friends, and loved ones join together to support one another and keep one other from making poor choices.

However, a separate set of laws frequently seems to apply when it comes to nations, particularly those with strong military forces. "You're either with us or against us" becomes the catchphrase, and occasionally actions that need to be carefully considered are excused under the pretext of self-defense.

Concerns have been raised by the current Middle Eastern conflict, in which Israel has carried out airstrikes in response to Hamas attacks. The number of people killed as a result of Israel's bombing campaign has substantially increased, but no one seems to be paying attention to the carnage. It is more important than ever to voice meaningful resistance to protracted war and destruction.

It is crucial to avoid making hasty decisions during times of crisis when nations are attacked and emotionally charged. The world appears to lose sight of wisdom and compassion just when they are most needed. There is concern that this war can worsen and involve more countries. It's time to alter the story and address the circumstance logically.

Peace may seem distant and war may seem easy, but it is at these times of difficulty that we must work the hardest for it. Israelis and Palestinians can only hope for a shared and successful future by cooperating, admitting past sins, and making reparations. It's time to reject the assumption that countries can act destructively in the wake of catastrophic occurrences and to uphold the values of empathy, comprehension, and cooperation instead.
