It’s 1770. Frederick the Great looks into the distance and says “I’m going to invade Russia.” Then he thinks. “No, I’ll just work on industry instead.” At that moment, the clouds part, and Charles XII descends in a ray of sun. He smiles and places a hand on Frederick’s shoulder. “You did it,” he says, “You passed history.” It’s over. Prussia lives to see another day.
It’s 1812. Napoleon Bonaparte looks into the distance and says, “I’m going to to invade Russia.” Meanwhile he thinks, “what can go wrong, I’m me after all.” Suddenly the heavens open and Frederick the Great descends from the clouds in a fiery golden chariot of light. He looks sternly at the Emperor before saying, “do it for the vine.” Prussia will have it’s revenge.

NNNNGGGGHHHH IT IS THE CUTEST THING I EVER DREW
So I spent about six hours yesterday brushing up on my Israel-Palestine relations wondering if I could possibly make a video about it. The answer is…I cannot. Just taking a look at my Tumblr ask box has convinced me of that. If I did make that video, I would not condemn Hamas or Israel purely because I am incapable of making that kind of judgement.
This is not me not being true to myself. It’s not me fearing retribution from one side or the other. It’s that the more I learn about it, the more I do not know. This is a pattern…when someone that isn’t involved in an issue has an opinion on it, it tends to be completely useless. Once they learn about the topic, they understand their uselessness. I have come to understand mine. In the script I abandoned, I wrote:
I don’t know what should be done and neither do any of the smartest, most informed people in the world. Having an opinion on how to fix this would be like me having an opinion on how to perform a brain transplant. No one can do it…least of all me.
In my video, my main concern would not be figuring that out, but simply increasing the number of people in the world who understand the conflict on even the most basic level.
In my searchings and readings, the attached link was what felt to me like the most unbiased, fullest picture of the conflict in the fewest words. There are, to be sure, many things that this leaves out. But I felt like it was delivering the kind of depth that, ideally, a video I would make would provide.
Unfortunately, that’s not the video I’m making for tomorrow. Every time I wrote it (four times) it ended with a me feeling like it was completely inadequate to the task of explaining how complicated the conflict in Israel is.
I’m not saying I’ll never make that video…I’ll keep working on it, but it’s not a two-day task.
But if you want to know what’s up with the Irsrael-Palestine conflict, this link is the one I would suggest you start with. It’s pretty impressive work.
I’ve finally almost fully completed it! Now someone wanna come and get the ones from yoshpet so I don’t die a million times?
