Why the Israel/Hamas issue will never end

17 July 2014, 13:21
I believe that the Israel / Hamas issue will never end because super powers that support both sides of the conflict have a vested interest in perpetual destabilisation of the Middle East for no other motive other than greed and profit off of the blood and misery of residents of the middle east as a whole. 

The gun culture is completely out of control.  Hamas is supported by Iran, who in turn is supported with munitions by Russia.  The russia gun industry, despite the overall decline of the Russian economy, is still booming.  Russia still produces dozens of new models of guns that it ships all around the world, for example the two firearms talked about it The Blaze .  Everyone knows about the AK 47 but the AK-12 is new, a quality gun, and is being sold to para military and governments all around the world.  In fact, the shotgun manufacturer Saiga is on one of the most exported shotguns in the entire world.  Saiga-12

On the other side of this is Israel and their supporters the United States.  I don't think anyone needs convincing that the gun culture of the United States is completely out of control.  They are a gigantic exporter of firearms across the entire world and supply Israel with the majority of their training and munitions.  The gun culture in the US is so out of control that there are large portions of their citizenry that are armed and support the idea that the government should be exporting weapons to the world.  Take for example
Concealed Carry License , which shows the process of receiving a permit to carry a weapon, secretly, anywhere inside of the United States.  This pervasive gun culture feeds the sentiment that what the United States government is doing by supporting perpetual conflict around the world is morally OK. 

I don't know the answer to these problems, I have just been feeling frustrated lately with the new outbreak of violence between Hamas/Israel and the ISIS militant situation, and felt like I needed to vent.  Thanks for reading!

With reference to Sean Davison's article "Assisted dying will save lives" (7/12/2016): How long before people are offered assisted-suicides to free up beds or because of some administrative mix-up? The poor and vulnerable in our society bear the most exposure. Read more...
