Last week I watched Dawn of the Planet of Apes. Wonderful movie, I loved it and is looking forward to see the next movie in the series. The interesting thing about this movie is how much it depicts the fighting among mankind. In the movie it is Apes against human. However in our reality it is humans against humans in bloody, senseless wars.
The movie drives home the hard truth that people who are hungry for power will risk the lives of their own people to obtain that power and many die needlessly. When we look at what is currently happening in the Middle East one can only wonder how many will have to die before there is peace between Israel and Palestine. Will it have to take an act of nature to bring about a total destruction of Gaza for this fighting to stop? Do they realize that when they are all dead the land will still be there?
