Paul Kelly Song: Sleep,Australia, Sleep - Ecological catastrophe

The Jewish Pendulum

[article still being drafted]
Neighbours Israel and Palestine share long overlapping convoluted histories dating back to the ancient Canaanites, Egyptians, Hittites and Hebrews. Successive wars and empires has seen control and power in the region change many times and also the territorial divisions by the conquerors. Might has ruled and been the recurring theme shaping the borders, not unlike other places of human occupation world over.

Despite a history of persecution of the Jews, Israel's current persecution of Palestinians demonstrates the relativism of conquest. The plight of the Jews and the power of the Jews seem to be a recurring unresolved pendulum of extreme power, extreme views and extreme consequences...throughout Jewish history. Lessons need to be learned to stop this self-defeating pendulum.
