For Patriotism SMS At ....

By Sorit Gupto

20 July, 2006

Scene 1.A serial bomb blast in the local trains of the Mumbai, the economic capital of India ,which claimed the lives of some one hundred and eighty people, wounded more than six hundred. Whole nation is stunned.

Scene 2.The city of Mumbai was again back on the track.

Scene 3. A panel of experts , who are discussing how to deal with the menace called terrorism. One of them is suggesting that India should follow the path taken by Israel to curb the terrorism. Let India attack the training camp of Pak Occupied Kashmir, just like Israel has bombarded the city of Berut, the capital of Lebanon and various other cities of Palestine .

Scene 4. Now it is the turn of the TV anchor. She is raising a question, whether India should follow the path of Israel and bombard the Terrorist training camp of PoK and other cities of Pakistan?

Send SMS at ****. For 'Yes" type this and for 'NO' type that.

Scene5. According to the poll survey of the SMSs some ninety percent of viewers says 'yes'. We should follow the Israeli way.

Problem is solved.

How easy nowadays to get a solution of any problem!!!

Let us check out what really we have in the future if we follow the Israeli path.

With the arms and ammunition provided by the US ,Israel, acting in "self Defense', has killed more than 1100 Palestinians since September 2000.

But that was not enough , one has to destroy the very leadership and that is why on

February 5, 2002,Speaking to the Israeli newspaper Maariv, Sharon complained, "In Lebanon, there was an agreement not to liquidate Yasser Arafat.... In principle, I'm sorry that we didn't liquidate him."

Israeli army has raided Palestinian towns several times in past decades and in some instances they had raided the refugee camps, prevented ambulances from coming to the aid of the injured and dying. On March 28, 2002 the Israeli Army invades Ramallah and surrounds Arafat's headquarters. In subsequent days, more West Bank cities and towns are occupied in a military operation with no apparent end or limit. More than a thousand Palestinians have been arrested in the first week of the invasion; dozens have been killed and hundreds wounded. Sharon called for Arafat to be expelled from the West Bank and exiled for life. In the right-wing press and from politicians in the Knesset come calls for even more drastic measures like expulsion of all relatives of suicide bombers; the killing of tens of thousands of Palestinians in order to drown the resistance in blood; the deportation of the entire population of the West Bank, several million people; and a crackdown on political dissent and opposition to the military atrocities among Israeli Arabs and in the Jewish population itself.

However reacting over the Israeli attack, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan charged that Western powers were "keeping mum" over mounting bloodshed in the Middle East, warning that they would "pay the bill" by facing more terrorist attacks.

Only time will tell about the chances of bringing peace in the Israel as well as Middle- East after these recent air strikes , but the history of such attacks shows completely different picture. As Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has pointed out in strong words that "Nothing can justify the showering of bombs on innocent civilians and the merciless destruction of cities and , "Those who back global peace (only) with words will sooner or later pay the bill by facing global terrorism... This is what is provoking terrorism," he was quoted as saying.

It is the real out come of the Israeli air strikes so far . In a message Hezbollah leader Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, Israels most wanted , declared open war against the Zionist regime. Emerging unscathed after air strikes on his home and office in Hezbollah's southern suburbs, Nasrallah warned: "You wanted an open war, you will get an open war."

Now who else but the innocent citizens of Tel Aviv and other boarder cities of Israel like Haifa are going to 'pay the bill'.

Let us clear ourselves about our position and role we are going to play in the future . If we are following Israel, we should concern just with the casualties in Israel, we should not care about the casualties in the Palestinians or Lebanese , as they are our enemies!!!

Next thing is to be prepare for any time suicide bomb attacks in the restaurants, crowded market places, buses, side walk cafes and so on just like the citizen of Tel Aviv are now habituated of. We should prepare ourselves for hiding in the bunkers to save us from the attacks by 'Katusha' rockets. We will be ordered to stay inside and sleep in the bomb shelters as Israelis in the border area are now doing.

We should prepare to get kidnapped like Eliahu Asheri, 18, of Itamar, who was kidnapped by Palestinians from the Popular Resistance Committees while hitchhiking from Betar Illit, southwest of Bethlehem, to Neveh Tzuf, where he was studying.

There will be a blast in the restaurant in our city like one which had happened in Falafel Rosh Ha'ir, some organization like The Islamic Jihad and Fatah's Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades would claim responsibility of the suicide bombing, calling it an act of "self-defense." Official spokesman of the group will call the attack "a natural result of the continued Indian crimes against our people".

And the things like these will go on and on, one suicide attack after another .We will go on "paying the bill".

Are we heading towards this? Wait. As a matter of fact we are heading towards much more destruction and possibly towards the nuclear war.

In the Arab-Isreal conflict , Israel always has an upper hand because of the military assistance from US and she is the only nuclear power of that area. Contrary to that, India and Pakistan both having the nuclear weapons will make the thing much more dangerous for both the citizen of India as well as Pakistan.

Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh wrote in The Washington Post that the American people should open their eyes to Israeli behavior in the occupied territories:

"If Israel will not allow Palestinians to live in peace, dignity and national integrity", he concluded, "Israelis themselves will not be able to enjoy those same rights."

For some strange reason the people of Israel and the American citizens are not able to read the writings on the wall, and now India is going on very that way.

Though India, the biggest democracy of the world has one thing with her,the virtual support of our citizens.

Literally the virtual support , the support of SMSs.

Ninety percent of the viewer has said that India must follow the Israeli way.
