Racism becomes normal among young Israelis

Racism becomes normal among young Israelis | Conflict and Prejudice | Scoop.it
Something stinks in the state of Israel says Israeli citizen Ilene Prusher. That something is racism, both the assaults on non-Jews by Jews and the wider refusal to give such racism its proper name.

Phonehtet Aung's insight:

What they have done and said about the Palestinian children are horrifying and this should not have happened. Everyone should be treated equally and they should not abuse other races.

It is very disappointing when racism becomes a norm among the young people as they grow up hating people from other races. It is a very corrupt mindset and we should all learn to accept one another. 

Jia Hui's curator insight, July 13, 2014 11:22 AM

I know that a person's hatred for someone cannot be erased in a short period of time. However, the Israelis should never "seized and detained dozens of Palestinian children, some aged as young as eight", no matter how much they are against the Palestinian people. They should put themselves in the shoes of the Palestinian parents so that they will know how much it hurts to lose their children and they would not want the Palestinian people to do the same to them. Therefore, if only each party is willing to learn to accept the other and try to get along with one another, there will then be hope for this conflict to end.

From this article, i felt shocked those Israeli soldiers could just target Palestinian children for doing nothing and was forced to confess to crime they did not commit. The soldiers mindsets are all wrong about Palestinian children and if this goes on, the consequences will dire.

Racist man on the London Underground

A racist man on the London unground starts shouting abusive and racist remarks at Japanese passenger then threatens to kill other passenger on train.

Phonehtet Aung's insight:

Although Britain and Japan were at war in the past, he should learn to forgive and forget, further more, the Japanese is innocent and is not at fault and cannot be blamed for what had happened in the past. The man should just move on and not abuse the passenger.

Its scary how recent this is, and how it still is actually happening all over the world. Yes there have been racial conflicts in the past, but haven't people moved on from that? This video shocked me to see how this man is judging and discriminating JUST based on appearance or assumption. Racism is a scary thing, as it is really hard to escape but i think what these people did on the train was right in defending the japanese guy and telling the old man off. People should speak up if they see something is wrong, because that is the only way to defeat this disgusting thing called Racism.

Well the nasty one should be the racist guy himself. Yes, the Japanese people's forefathers had done wrong and the current generation is apologetic about it but this does not give any reason for the man to hurl abuses at the Japanese.

Medical crisis in Gaza as conflict endures
CNN
Jerusalem (CNN) -- Patients being treated on the floor, because emergency rooms are overcrowded, medical sources say. Medicines running low.

Via Woo Jia Xin
Phonehtet Aung's insight:

Many people are wounded and had to be sent to the hospital due to the conflict between Gaza and Israel, and as a result the hospital are overcrowded and medical supplies are running low, so people are being treated on the floor. It really saddens me that innocent people are being wounded and in such a condition due to conflict between countries

As a result of the conflict between Gaza and Israel, many people have been injured and needed to be sent to the hospital. However, due to a lack of medical resources, Israeli patients in Gaza are being treated on the floor. I do not think that foreigners in a country should be least favoured among the locals, as it may soon lead to yet another confllict.
