Appearing small and weak as a survival mechanism

Reader comment on item: Israel, U.N. Favorite

Submitted by David (United States), Dec 5, 2005 at 14:59

What we appear to be witnessing is a psychotic psychopathic group of people under the power and banner of our financially maintained U.N., proclaiming that murder is acceptable for the attainment of some land. Why would such a seemingly intelligent enlightened group of people act in this way? Are the Palestinian's primitive use of suicide homicide bombers and poverty a super simple survival mechanism? A way to garner sympathy and support and disarm any attacker?

Any competent military would be easily able to defeat them utterly and finally, but if they appear weak and underprivileged then they attain a kind of altruistic cover from our own compassionate natures. But, were they to arm themselves, or if say Iran continues with starting another arms race, would the UN be able to resist the call and need for preemptive actions?

The UN is supporting the Palestinian's position because, in my opinion, they are afraid to be seen in the eyes of the world to harm a weak, helpless, and defenseless people, even though those underdogs are the aggressors. Staying weak, primitive, and tribal has become a survival mechanism on a group dynamic scale.

Only by our taking a HARD PRINCIPLED STAND will it be possible to overcome this nearly automatic and autocratic activity.
