Is it like the peace that happened in Gaza before a few months (the war on Gaza)?

I think we got too much peace in the last war on Gaza. It is not enough or what?

In the final peace process a lot of children in Gaza lost their families and homes.

When somebody wants to take my home, do you think I will give up simply? No I will fight back.  What about you Mr. President? What are you going to do Mr. President? You will fight back exactly like us, as we do in Palestine.

The peace you are talking about is represented in arming Israel to overwhelm us by flashy peace bombs as happened in Gaza.

Anyway, let us go to the point that you really want peace and you are the president that we waited for. You want to visit Israel to discuss the situation for peace.


But prior to you, many American presidents came to make peace between both Palestine and Israel, but they failed.

Are you going to do the same? I hope you won't, and you won't disappoint me, because I believe you really want peace.

If you really want peace, withdraw American troops from Iraq, and Afghanistan.  Get them back home. In Iraq leave the land to its people and stop supporting Israel against Palestinians. Afterward the killing will stop.  

Mr. President you can be the one who makes unforgettable differences and memorable changes to be remembered forever. Mr. President you can make changes in the region if you really want.

Here I’m not asking you to bring troops to get back our stolen lands. I’m asking you to be clear, to stop Israel from stealing land and building new settlements, to put away all plans that were established by others, because these plans indeed won’t bring peace.

But if you choose one of these plans like “Annapolis” or “The Road Map” we will see more peace bombs, another war, and more homeless children and families.  

Mr. President we are humans just like you. We have two legs, two hands, and eyes. When you visit us you will see.

The thing which I cannot understand is why you are supporting and arming Israel, not Palestinians or Palestine, and for what?

Can you tell me Mr. President?

Is this because we don’t deserve life?
