In an earlier message, I asked: “Have you seen a beautiful Jew lately?” I then asserted that “They are everywhere; and they are just as beautiful as Christians and Muslims.” What I did not mention was the fact that sometimes, they are more beautiful.
Here is one: Nurit Peled-Elhanan, a Jewish Israeli, an education professor at Tel Aviv University, a wonderful human being, and a mother who lost her daughter in a horrible carnage caused by a suicide bomber. In her unimaginable grief, Nurit searched for the root cause of her tragedy and found it in the dispossession, oppression, and injustice imposed by the state of Israel on the Palestinian people. Here is this superb human being talking about the reality of the state of Israel and its so-called “Jewish Democracy”:
Watch this wonderful Jewish mother, and listen carefully to her words through which she uncovers the truth that lead to the greatest loss of her life; the death of her daughter. As activists for justice and peace for all, we believe we have courage; but when we witness such greatness, we are humbled.
Hope is the stuff from which life is made!
