Just When One Thinks There is Nothing More to Say - Something Comes Up

Reader comment on item: The Key Issue of Hamas vs. Israel
in response to reader comment: Lull Lingers? Funding Needed for Day of Rage?

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 15, 2021 at 15:06

In trying to get a better sense of where things in the changed politics of the world are heading after being disrupted yet again by all sorts of contravening issues, now noting eleven days since considering the lull from last time, we observed elsewhere about the flags waving and new balloon attacks starting up new sensations of rage that had simmered, but never went away. It begs a question: isn't anyone tired of this; and if not; why not?
It is written:

مَا مِنْ أحَدٍ يَقْدِرُ أنْ يَمْنَعَ الرَّوْحَ مِنْ مُغَادَرَةِ الجَسَدِ. وَمَا مِنْ أحَدٍ يَقْدِرُ أنْ يَمْنَعَ مَوْتَهُ. لَا يُسْمَحُ لِلمُحَارِبِ بِإخلَاءِ مَوْقِعِهِ، كَذَلِكَ الشَّرُّ لَا يُخلِي سَبيلَ الأشْرَار

That being the case, then people, why the rage(?); why the continuation of futility when after it is all expended, what remains when, as it has been shown for several hundreds of years, Israel remains and empires that were spent in delusions of ambitions are in the dust, as it is written.
After all, balloons in flames are like dreams going up in smoke; is that not the definition of futility?
