All wars are waged for profits and plunder and constitute crimes against humanity. History tells the truth that herd like passion perpetuates warmongering - killing of the same mankind. The ongoing conflicts between Israel and Palestinian people are no exception but camouflaged record of absurd lies, deceptions and failed leadership. If intelligent leaders were to come in the future, coming generations might term it absurd and utterly foolish that while Jews and Muslims had so much in common; they lived in distrust and wasted time and energies during decades-old fear of the unknown. They breathe the same oxygen so close but find themselves operative in conflicting time zones. The mankind is paying with pains to systematic conflict-making and conflict-keeping policies maintained and applauded by the leading military powers of the globe. Man and humanity are striving to survive against manipulative and highly dangerous military odds, not seen in the living history. Nobody can predict with certainty how the future will unfold for peace and co-existence, not just in the predominantly Arab Middle East but its uncontrollable consequences for the whole of the mankind.
