I Really Need To Start Writing Again

Posted on: October 20, 2007

Those 2 last weeks were the most unbusy weeks of my fucking entire like. Israel teachers are in a huge strike against the authorities, and they have all the reasons to, poor teachers, getting low wage payments and are treated like whores on duty. Basically out educational system sucks balls, this is why I’m going to a “Nerd’s school”, getting the bus every morning and driving it for 40 minuets every morning (last year was 1 hour) when I have a high school 5 minutes walk near my house. When I say its a Nerd’s school i really mean it, no one is popular, everyone is behaving as he likes to without giving a crap about others and we don’t do drugs, a real fucking nerd school. But I’m enjoying it, its something i wish to everyone to experience. So the strike i think will last something like 3 months or so, so fuck.

Well this was just a test to see how reliable you people are to my blog, well i guess if you continued reading till here then you do care about me :).

Recently I read a book by an Irish writer. Julian Gough, who was previously on a Rock band (I think they still exist), the book is called Juno & Juliet and its about two gorgeous twin sisters who goes to the university at Galway in Ireland, just an amazing book that touched me allot (the plot doesn’t sound real exiting but let me assure you its a fabulous book)  and through this book I opened to the real world. It’s like I was one touch away from liberty and self choices, It’s like I was living real life outside the cell I’m in. I know that I’m supposed to feel like freedom is at my doors, just one year away, but unfortunately it isn’t. As an Israeli citizen I have to go to the army at the age of 18 for 3 years of obligatory service, which kinda sucks balls more than the teachers strike. Now the thing is that I’m in a dilemma, a huge dilemma, to go to the army and waste 3 years of my “life” defending my country from those fucking terrorists bastards or get out from the army by making myself a jerk that dont give a shit about the army and fail all the tests and then they will let me go and will tell me I’m not needed in the army, that will make me a bastard in the eyes of israeli people so getting work here in the future will be almost impossible. Two fucking choices that I have to choose from before the 18.11.07, this is the date of my tests for the army. I don’t want another institution that will prevent me to fly to my freedom as a person. I want to open, discover, learn, enjoy, just start living fucking life!! But on the other hand people had died for my protection here in Israel, the least i can do is to serve the army as a gratitude to those who died for the country,its  not a big country that let their man die for no purpose, we are in a fucking war since the country was established, its the fucking only country that jews can live in totally peace in society, the only country that Jews have. I really can’t decide, its pissing me off, freedom is one step away from me, life is about to begin and i need to go to the fucking army, just fuck it.

Ahhh, music will not accompany me here on this post, because of my laziness and boredom. You will have to forgive me, and I promise you all that more music will come next time, with a great joyful post about how the sky is blue and how the wind whispers to the lovers.

If you feel to comment to a shitty post as this one, do so, i will appreciate it alot.

We definately read the blog. As about army.. although I as a reader don’t want you to go (the blog will be closed then,right?), but I think that by going there you’ll get invaluable expirience and meet lots of new people.. By the way what’s the public reaction at those who don’t wanna go to army?

hey ariel,

interesting post. I hate military, I hate weapons – but there´s one big exception: the IDF.
I think until the day when mankind will wake up (will they?? I´m not so sure) there will be wars in the world and you can´t just take a pacifistic point of view and say “stop all wars! disarm the military!”. can the iran be stopped without weapons, the terrorist or to take a historical example: who did stop the shoah? who fought the nationalsocialist germany? it were the armies of the soviet union, britain, usa, france, canada and all the allied countries (and the Partisans, all my respect to them!!!). it weren´t peace prayers or demonstrations.

and because antisemits want to destroy the state of israel (I´m very carefully to compare something with the national socialism and the shoah, but what does the iran regime, the hizbollah or the hamas want? they want to kill the jews, if possible worldwide and the first step is the war against israel. so iran is planning a new holocaust) there is the necessity of an strong army in israel, as sad as it is: no IDF, no Israel (and that is also the reason why I stand with israel and the idf in every conflict and war. for sure there are a lot of cases the idf did shit, but I think israel ´s democracy is strong enough to make this public and discuss it – there are so many critical people in israel, they just don´t need the whole world telling them what they have to do (and all this people which alway bash israel keeping their fuckin mouth shut in other cases not concerning israel….)

but of course you know this all, I don´t have to tell you, I just want to explain how I can feel with you (and I have some friends in Israel, all did go to the military and they all told that they had the same hard decision to make). and it is making me angry, really angry to see that young people have to grab a weapon to save their own life and that of the others in their country, just because antisemitism is still on the rise.

compared to that I have such an easy live, never had to question me military or not? I just walked out of school, had the time to discover the world and went to university.

ok, I will quit here, wrote enough. all the best! greetings

Hey Ariel,

I just wanted to tell you, that I absolutely enjoy reading your blog. Keep it up. 🙂

Take care

@Urbanology-Wow, thats was a hell of a comment. I have exactly the same view as you have, after reading your comment it’s like i felt it was me writing (with better grammar and fabulous English).
And you know what your right, I can’t just tell myself “Fuck the world, I’m against war”, this is the situation we are living in, as fucked up as it is, there is no other way. IDF right now as lost his reputation a bit to the eyes of Israel people because of the last war (which they fucked up big time). But i think i would not live with myself later on knowing I could have done something for my country, defending it from all those antisemitic and terrorists who don’t want the existence of Israel. Guess I’ll have to take the army as a fact and make the most of the 3 years I’ve got, even if Israel is a shitty place, again its the only place we’ve got.

@Russ – Answer for your question: Because our country is based on the army, and well most of Israel’s citizens went to the army, people won’t respect me at all, I won’t get a job anywhere respectable (if i decide to work in Israel), and I’ll be in the lowest position in the Israeli society. Thanks for reading my blog 🙂

@Benjamin – Thanks for your words.
Take care to
