Middle East Terrorism - The Word Cloud Tarot Show - 09 Oct 2023
This week Hamas terrorists escaped Gaza to murder hundreds of Israeli citizens.
@firstname.lastname@example.org does a five minute tarot reading to examine the issue and finds that force and violent oppression can lead to temporary victory, but bigoted tribal nationalist and racist religious wars are based upon falsehoods. They can only lead to cycles of revenge-violence, cruelty, horror and oppression for all the people everywhere.
Sadly there is no sign of the world raising it's levels of consciousness just yet, so the cruelty and revenge will continue until science and understanding can bring about change.
### Past - 7 Of Trumps, Chariot
Before I was born, in the 60s, Israel was threatened and seized The Golan Heights, The West Bank, The Sinai Peninsula and The Gaza Strip.
There was an _opportunity_ , an _aspiration_, and with _urgent_ _impetus_ their _military_ _pursued_ their _enemy_ and _forced_ their own _power_ and _will_ upon those places.
With great _zeal_ and _momentum_, against _expectation_, they just _achieved_ _control_ They _triumphed_
### Present - 6 Of Wands, Victory
They have _victory_, they _won_, they are the _rulers_, they have the _influence_, they set the _priorities_, their _will_ be done.
Though that may be _overshadowed_, as they are also gaining _notoriety_ because of the cruelty of their _rule_ and the fact their _ongoing_ and _continuing_ occupation is a _recognised_ war-crime.
Because of the glass-table we know what the next card is, and so where this kind of "victory" leads.
### External Influence - 2 Of Pentacles, Change
All things are temporary, even victory. _Change_ is of course inevitable.
Oppressive power does not stop _conflict_.
The _problem_ is that of _revolution_, there is still _flux_, still a _conflict_, the people are _polarized_ and power is _unbalanced_.
There are oppressed people who need _freedom_, they have _resilience_ and they will have a _radical_ _responses_ as they _endeavour_ to _build_
There is always violent _opposition_ to the use of force.
And this change is just _cyclic_, just eye for eye a bomb for a bomb, a death for a death.
We have the glass table, we know where this leads.
Can anything stop it?
### Hidden Influence - 6 Of Swords, Science
Well, there is this one. The six of Swords: Science.
The use of _evidence_ and _reasoning_ and _transparency_ of _investigation_, finding _rational_ answers.
You see all the long tendrils of violence spanning back though the 60 and the 40s and all the centuries, is based on lies.
There are no chosen people, there is no manifest destiny, all religions are false, no race is better than any other, racism has been investigated and it is a lie, it is wrong, there aren't even actually any countries, people made them up!
The bigotry and hatred that fuels this violence is just WRONG, factually incorrect, revenge-missiles and revenge-sieges and ending violence with violence have been tried. They do not work.
That is just Science.
If we learn to think with _clarity_ and _wisdom_, we can _transition_ into a higher level of consciousness, a _transformation_ of understanding, We'd have public have calls for _peace_ and _calm_ instead of more and more wars.
So what are the chances? Has there been process?
What does that "Future" card say?
### Outcome - 9 Of Swords, Cruelty
Well, yeah. Glass table. We already know.
There will be _revenge_ _attacks_ _pain_ and _desperation_, _heartache_, _sorrow_
It will be a _gloomy_ _nightmare_ with cycles of _cruel_ _savage_ _slaughter_, the _assaulting_ and _tormenting_ of _victims_.
Gaza will be an open-air _prison_ with _grief_, _agony_, _fear_, _misery_ and _inhuman_ _mistreatment_ of people that _brutalizes_ them until they in turn get _violent_ about *their* _injustice_.
The _barbarians_ on every side will continue in their _treachery_ and _deception_, using _terror_ against each other until we as a species realize that that can't work.
All of my whole life Israel has been occupying Gaza, they had the power and the will so they took it Just Drove in with their chariot.
They have victory, they have won, and yet they still oppressed their subjugated people. Blockaded them. Occupied them. Murdered them.
Change always comes, an action will have a reaction, brutalized people will react brutally.
And the thing is, everything they're fighting over, the religion and racism and bigotry and revenge is not true.
No religions are true. Racism is not true. Bigotry is not true. Countries are not god-given. Tribes are all made of people.
And most people know that by now.
Science and logic and rationality are here in the background, influencing things slowly.
But... Too slowly.
There will be more cruelty, more violence, more brutalizing people and lots of pain and death before people realize that can't work.
