Challenged below for why I am mourning genocide in Gaza. I mourn genocide in Gaza because I am the granddaughter of a family half wiped out in a holocaust and I know genocide when I see it. People are asking why I am taking this ‘side’. There are no sides. I mourn all victims. But every law of war and international law is being broken in the targeting of civilians in Gaza. I stand with the people of Gaza exactly because things might have turned out differently if more people had stood with the Jews in Germany. I stand with the people of Gaza because no one stood with us. I went to synagogue last Friday night and had to leave because I kept waiting for the massacre of Gaza to be addressed. ..nothing. where is god? God is only ever where we stand with our neighbor in trouble and against injustice. I turn in my card of faith as of now because of our overwhelming silence as Jews…I don’t mean Israelis, a separate issue…about the genocide now in Gaza.. I want no other religion than this, that is, seeing rather than denying my neighbor under fire and embracing rather than dismissing those targeted with annihilation and ethnic cleansing.

[Los judíos israelíes no se dan realmente cuenta (o no quieren darse cuenta) de lo que hicieron y todavía hacen al pueblo palestino porque ello es] el fruto de un largo proceso de adoctrinamiento que empieza en el jardín de infancia y se prolonga durante toda la vida de los israelíes. Un adoctrinamiento que da una percepción racista del otro, al que describe como hostil, primitivo, casi no existente. Todo ello para que la gente no se sienta interpelada por cuestiones morales. La segunda razón es que el capital político en el que se funda el estado judío se basa en la superioridad moral derivada del Holocausto. Incluso un gran intelectual como Martin Buber escribió algo tan estúpido como “tuvimos que hacer una pequeña injusticia a fin de corregir una gran injusticia”. ¿Por qué lo uno se conecta con lo otro? En Israel se me odia como a nadie porque sostengo que en el Holocausto hay una lección universal, no una lección sionista.

You have to be ok with your own fears. If you’re an honest person, you’ll make mistakes, but that’s when the most interesting things happen.
