Israel-Palestine conflict reignited once again
Red and Black
To understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, you need to know a thing or two about Israel's history.

Alexander Wave's insight:

Surely, this conflict will leave its mark in the course of history to let the future generations decide and justify the conflict on various points of view. This conflict has resulted in tremendous number of impacts that has changed the mentality of the people, all over the world. One serious issue and impact that has up rose,  is very intriguing and shocking. " Respecting Hitler for his effort in Holocaust". Understandable that Israel has violated basic human rights by murdering innocent vast amount of Palestinians. Nevertheless, it should never be the case of respecting Hitler for killing the jews. No it should not be the case. What makes you  different than a killer when you hail a faccist? This just become one of the many dents in the universe. Now the question is, will there be more?

I feel that mass murder should never be something that people can get away with, and especially if they justify it with religion. No religion should teach people to murder others based on their religion.

I think countries should do to help prevent or reduce prejudice which may cause unwanted conflict around the world. But we all know that sometimes it is very difficult for us to eradicate prejudice because the ideas such as racial discrimination being reinforced by people around us. And it also could be passed down by generations which would have great impacts on people.

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.

Alexander Wave's insight:

These type of racial discrimination based on historical events and grudges has dominated the humanity since World War II. Now the real question here is, do we have rights to discriminate another race based on historical events and grudges? I would say, every human have rights. To comment but not discriminate. Why, because these discrimination lead nowhere but further conflicts. In this case, the man was completely at wrong but if he had instead open the discussion instead of cursing and swearing, that would've be more humane.

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.

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.

117John's curator insight, July 14, 2014 10:35 AM

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.

Alexander Wave's insight:

With ongoing conflicts based on racism and religion-ism, the country suffered in all aspects of nation's progress state. A real key to the nation's progress does not lie within trade or oil or etc, but rather what it really lies is peace and security.  When a nation's security is threatened, all of nation's progress, ceased. The lives of people, lost. And the mentality of citizens, threatened. These conflicts bring nothing but injustice to human rights and what the forefathers of the nation has fought for, peace. When there is no progress, where can we go from here?
