i recently learned the UAE was middle eastern. United Arab Emirates. I thought 'Emirates' airlines was Indian. I didn't know.

so the US has stopped trying to play nice with Iran. Investing in Iran hasn't helped peace in the middle-east. So trade deal with UAE and... Some place I've never heard of. An idea that that might better promote peace in the middle-east.

I don't really understand about international politics.

I would like to visit Israel before I die. Experience what it is like to be in the promised land for Jewish people -- as a person who isn't Jewish. Israel is supposed to be the promised land for the Palestines? Is that true? The Palestines, too? Is that right? Are the Palestines and the Jewish people antagonistic? Something like that...

It is about...

It is about crying one thing when you are losing and singing a different tune when you are winning. It's a... Two mindedness. Hypocracy. I'm not quite sure what. It gets me thinking... To moderate. Moderate, yeah, the trauma story. To keep it in check. Also a kind of paying it forward... For the privaledge or advantage that you get...

I mean to say that the Holocaust was horrible... But how many Jewish people would do that to some other group if they thought they could get away with it...

I suppose I might look kind of Jewish. I have a nose. Dark hair. I don't know that I would pass for Jewish amongst Jews. But I would like to experience the holy land for the Jews as a non-Jewish person. To see if it is the promised land... Generally...

Or... If it is like Germany was, for a time there, for the Aryan people. When everything seemed to go their way. In their favor.

Does this make sense?
