Defending My People, Defends All People. Will Your People Be Next?

In my Times of Israel Blog, I adamantly defend our Jewish community. I hope we will hear from more of our friends as well.

Netanyahu is fighting the Israel-Hamas War within Gaza, in ways that many Jews object to, but this does not mean that they don’t still support Israel and the Israeli people. Jews, Israelis, and the Israeli government are not synonymous. October 7th will forevermore be a tragic scar for Jews. The daily clips of Gazan dead children and parents screaming in shock cannot continue.

Meanwhile, antisemitism has escaped the confines of the thin veneer it hides beneath, and it’s clear that the reprehensible behavior of antisemites is spreading it’s poison worldwide.

I believe that once any people are treated unfairly, and in this case, reprehensibly, everyone is a possible target.

In the video above, you’ll see and hear members of the Jerusalem Youth Chorus https://jerusalemyouthchorus.org/ with Sam Tsui, singing Home. Their website states: “The Jerusalem Youth Chorus is a choral and dialogue program for Palestinian and Israeli youth in Jerusalem.”  Their mission is to “provide a space for these young people from East and West Jerusalem to grow together in song and dialogue.” While co-creating music and sharing stories they want to “empower youth in Jerusalem with the responsibility to speak and sing their truths, as they become leaders in their communities and inspire singers and listeners around the world to work for peace, justice, inclusion, and equality.”
