For Every Arab Day of Rage, I declare a Day of Hugging a Jew
These last 18 months or so have been rough for your friends who are Members of the Tribe.
There was last summer.
And now attacks that stab us in the back and leave us for dead.
We really thought that after the Holocaust and after the State of Israel was formed that the horrid days of the pograms and the persecution were behind us. How wrong we are.
Again we feel persecuted.
Mad as Hell.
And utterly alone.
If you are not Jewish and have a Jewish friend, girfriend, boyfriend or spouse or co-worker, ask us how we are doing today.
If you are in the same town, please give us a hug.
Give us a call.
Send us a text.
Tell us, without condition, that you cannot believe the barbarism that is going on in Israel, where Jews are supposed to feel safe. Tell us that you stand strong with us and if the hatred comes here, wherever that might be in the Jewish diaspora, you will speak out for us and protect us.
Please. We need your friendship now.
