Yeah Israel, how dare you build a wall to keep your people safe from suicide bombers, muslim extremists who want to kill you any way possible, and country’s who want to see your people wiped off the map. HOW DARE YOU JEWISH HATEMONGERS!

This nonsensical battle between the two countries have been meaningless. It’s time to grow up. And furthermore, its people like ‘Rob Biggs’ instigating racism for no particular reason. Is it because he was abused as a child? The world may never know. BUT I do know, is that when we can appreciate everyone’s beliefs as there own entity without being judged, that my friend is peace. We are one world, it’s time we started acting like it.

When did Jews conduct suicide bombings against German children? Never, the answer is never. When di Palestinians kill everyone they can? Every chance they get. The Israeli wall stops homicidal maniacs from murdering civilians. But hey, thanks for coming out in support of the Party of Allah (Hezbullah)and rocket attacks against schools and hospitals.

In light of all the glorification of that transcendent
moment 20 years ago, I’m glad someone is at least
acknowledging the walls still in existing or still
being built.

I always think of the Warsaw ghetto wall.  The Star of David on the tool box is very good touch.

I am marking my 2nd “anniversary” online this month, although a senior citizen (health delay - CFS/ME). I remember my shock at seeing a Star of David on a tank, a military tank.  I grew up Orthodox Jewish in Brooklyn, on the edge of Borough Park, with a Bubbie in Borough Park (who was a socialist and Orthodox Jew). She was a feminist in deed and not a racist.  (I’m now an atheist Jew.) I signed one of the online petitions in support of the Goldstone Report.
