This is the Israel that many the fanatic Muslims want to destroy.
Watch this 3 1/2 minute video and I promise you’ll be glad you did. Then send it as far and wide as you can. Help spread the story of who Israel is. Remember when Hurricane Sandy hit NY? Israel was the only country to send aid!
My response to this email was the following:
How many good deeds does it take to make up for taking people’s homes, cutting off their water, strangling their economy, and applying massive group punishment for any resistance? I was raised to abhor the group punishment meted out by the Germans in WWII against the people in the occupied countries because of the acts of their resistance fighters.
Do all the US’s good deeds make up for the coups we have fomented? Does it make up for the genocide we committed against the native Americans at the birth of our country and on-going? Does it make up for the Iraqis and Libyans and Syrians that have been killed because we wanted to spread democracy in the middle east?
On the other hand, do you have good feelings for all the humanitarian aid that Cuba has given out around the world?
Do you have any capability to see things as your adversaries might see them, and stop to think that maybe you can’t make up for acts of inhumanity by a few acts of humanity?
How many murderers get off because they can point to all the billions of people that they did not murder? In the eyes of our laws one act of murder wipes out all the good acts you have done.
