My Stance on The Middle East’s Main Conflict. Because Real Peace is Not An Option: Real Peace is An Urgent Necessity, for All Humanity!

Jean-Pierre Ady Fenyo

The Following is what I wrote for a Friend who is Not Properly Informed and who did not Study Political Science, does not have a proper basic understanding and knowledge concerning the disparate Zionist Movements, and The History of Antisemitism, nor what The Holocaust, World War Two, and The Antebellum Pre-WW2 period was about.

Dear Friend,

I have asked You not to discuss contemporary politics, especially that which relates to the Middle East.

You are not qualified, as You refuse to read serious academic level books and essays on this topic.

I have read tons, researched tons and fact-checked tons, and I have my own views which are atypical of those held by others.

My views are not accepted by either most Israelis nor by most non-Israeli people throughout the Middle East and World in general.

My views are not accepted by Extremists on either side of this issue. And I support a Global Movement of True Moderates for Peace, Prosperity, Real Social Justice, Environmental Sensibility, and Ethics in the Public and Private Sector, and in Society in general.

It is not Ethical to do things that are illogical and which put all Life in danger, including the lives of Israelis and Palestinians, of Jews and non-Jews.

Racist-type Zionists … who are unlike the non-racist-type zionists….would accuse me of being anti-Israeli and thus Anti-Jewish. They are wrong.

Racist-type people who falsely claim to be serving the best interests of Palestinians, would accuse me of being pro-Israeli and thus anti-Peace. They are wrong too.

Racism of any kind, anywhere and by anyone throughout the World is something I oppose wholeheartedly.

Palestinians have been victims of horrors. Israelis have been victims of horrors.

Jews…and I am using the broadest meaning of ‘Jewish’ here…. who are not Israelis and not interested in becoming Israelis are victims of the harm done to vulnerable Palestinians and vulnerable Israelis…mostly the poor and working-class and lower-middle-class….

I tend to support OneVoice Movement for Peace and Combatants for Peace.

I oppose those specific so-called Pro-Israel groups who oppose real peace, and who actually cause immense harm to Jews everywhere in Israel and around the World. exactly on account of…precisely because those groups deny the Historical rights and suffering of the peoples who make up the Palestinian nation.

I oppose so-called Pro-Palestinian groups which actually cause immense harm to Palestinians everywhere in the Holy Land, the Middle East and around the World, exactly on account of….precisely because those groups deny the Historical necessity of some Jews to be able to have their own nation, able to have an actual realistic means to defend the right of Jews to never again suffer the horrific inhumanities, the war crimes, the genocidal mass murder and torture of millions of infants, children, women and men perpetrated by the Nazis and other Fascists, who are all anti-Semitic racist monsters.

I oppose false narratives from people on both sides.

I oppose the dangerously unsophisticated and nuance-missing narrative about what the various Zionist movements were about…

Because there is NO SUCH THING AS ONE SINGLE FORM of Zionism and it is false to say that Zionism is always the same one thing, when some forms of it are day/night-different from other forms!

I oppose the dangerously unsophisticated and nuance-missing narrative about the Palestinians.

It all easily gets too complicated AND in the chaotic confusion INNOCENT PEOPLE ON ALL SIDES…including non-Israeli people like me get harmed. Harmed just because I oppose those who oppose real serious efforts at real Peace, Prosperity and Justice.

Whatever will become the accepted agreement to bringing about Real Peace between both sides; it will have to be based on the understanding that opposition to the rights of Palestinians to have a Secure Homeland to Live On is actually anti-Semitism, as is the opposition to the rights of Israelis to have a Secure Homeland. Whether it will be some sort of Two-States Solution, or some sort of Unusual Switzerland-like Cantons Solution, or whatever…IF it delivers Real Peace then I will support that Solution.

IF YOU KNEW ALL THAT I KNOW FOR FACT; you would understand things in a way that would help bring about peace sooner.

So: please my friend: READ THIS OVER AND OVER and stop sending me sentences and words that I cannot accept and which actually serve the very interests of those who want perpetual war.

The enemies of peace in The Middle East are very clever and deceptive, and include the extremists in Israel, Iran, Saudi, Egypt, etc.

PEACE IS NOT OPTIONAL…PEACE IS URGENTLY NEEDED….FOR WITHOUT PEACE all of Humanity is at risk of TOTAL DISASTER.

Best,

JP
