Is there something wrong here?
So today I took my family for a bar-b-que to celebrate our Nation’s holiday: Passover. Look at the picture above, is there something strange going on? It’s an Arab family enjoying the beautiful Israeli spring weather next to mine. Israel is the future of peace in the world despite the lies you here from the BDS.
Today I was disheartened deeply when I saw that my country was being labeled as Occupying again.
When you call Israel an Occupying State, what does that mean exactly in relation to where you are in America. How long have you lived in your home, how far back can you trace your family history in comfortable America. Where were they before? Who settled America, and who was in America before the White Man? The entire country is Occupied by settlers who came to make it big financially in the new world. How did they get the land? Through eradicating the Native Indian population. Doesn’t sound so nice, but you’ll get over it, right? It won’t change anything, because you didn’t actually do the dirty work. But you still will enjoy your country.
The area which is being talked about in the News now is called Samaria. This is Ancient Israel land according to the bible. When our country was surrounded by all sides in 1967 a war started and this area was captured by Israel. The question is, who started this war? Can you imagine Arizona being surrounded by California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Mexico and each of those states were crying out for the death, murder and rape of every citizen in Arizona? That every Arizonan was going to be pushed into the Grand Canyon? Let’s say that Arizona went to war as a defensive act and captured some of that land. Let’s say that to keep the peace and protect their citizens they didn’t return that land. Would anyone say anything about Arizona being to blame?
Some politicians ridicule our Prime Minister with witty catch phrases like when it comes to Israel, “It’s all about the Benjamins.” Sad. Our people, can proudly trace our Nation’s history back for the past 3,300 years. Just yesterday I visited Shiloh, one of our Nation’s most revered sites in Judaism which is located in beautiful Samaria. Are people that daft to say that the Jewish Nation is occupying a place foreign to our people? Whereas we can honestly claim that this is Our land based on our Torah which has been kept for over 3,000 years, people in America should be more cautious with their words, pointing fingers and claiming we are in the wrong. Take a look in the mirror yourself.
In the meantime, as Jewish parents you have to know that this is a huge test for you. How much effort will you put into educating your kids about their own heritage. Get involved and don’t take the lies they spill on us. The Jewish People are here to stay –
How can you help?
