Life's a big mystery but sometimes you can think rationally and get by but sometimes there's things even rationality can't help. I was having a conversation with my dad about the current state of affairs with the Middle East revolt and it sort of went into the Isreal-Palestinian conflict. I watched this amazing documentary in one of the sociology modules I took in NTU and was left absolutely heartbroken at the state of things. Among other things, what I really don't understand is how Israel is expanding their territory on Palestinian land, taking away the basic human rights and freedom of the Palestinian people and continue to do so till this very day and the whole world doesn't do a single damn thing. Imagine living in illegally occupied land in your own country. How are people so heartless? Why aren't people calling out on these extremist who claim they "own" the land at the expense of thousands of lives? How are we allowing this injustice and oppression to still continue? And further more what the hell are the nations within the Arab League doing? 
I. DON'T. GET. IT.

This is the link to the documentary I was talking about:
Peace, Propaganda and The Promised Land

Watch it and be enlightened after which you'll probably feel really helpless and mad.

Hey long time no hear. When I think about this topic I get so fired up internally it's heart-wrenching.
