My voice will always be raised in support of Christian-Jewish ties and against the anti-Semitism that all sensible people fear and detest. But this cannot be an excuse for standing aside as successive Israeli governments colonize the West Bank and advance what are racist laws.
Many Black South Africans have travelled to the occupied West Bank and have been appalled by Israeli roads built for Jewish settlers that West Bank Palestinians are denied access to and by Jewish-only colonies built on Palestinian land in violation of international law.
The 1,200 rabbis may not like what I have to say, but it is long past time for them to remove the blinders from their eyes and grapple with the reality that Israel is becoming an apartheid state, or like South Africa in its denial of equal rights is not a future danger…but a present-day reality.
Albert Einstein (via thelittlephilosopher)
I could not find a date or source for this quote but many repeats of it. I do not hold it as a valid citation but it is a sad but honest sentiment which is shared by many Israelis, Jews and many others around the world. Free Palestine and stop killing Her people.
