The situation in Gaza that is coming to the attention of the world community consists of high unemployment, their source of drinking water is 97% contaminated, the area is considered an open-air prison that the state of Israel has control over to the point if one tries to leave the military and police forces will use deadly force if necessary to enforce the policy of isolation of the Palestinians living in both the Gaza Strip and the West Bank which are governed by the radical group Hamas in Gaza and the so-called legitimate government  authority isolated in the West Bank. The United States relocation of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem has added fuel to the fire of discontent that is being stoked by the actions of Israel and America that totally ignore the plight of the Palestinian people living in refugee camps for the last 70 years.

Discrimination of any kind is a lofty goal that mankind has never been able to really to eliminate through centuries of human history. The Jewish people know better than any other ethnic group what it means to have it all and not have anything because of religious and racial beliefs. The treatment of people such as those from North Africa who are being discriminated against as they seek asylum in Israel. The inability to find a solution to the problem of Jerusalem and the Palestinians have now come to the forefront of the world community. The time to produce an agreement for the future of those diverse people’s who call the Middle East home is rapidly running out. The future of mankind depends on the outcome of this event.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
