A discussion of Israel’s Nation State Law with Eugene Kontorovich, Einat Wilf, Sayed Kashua, and Peter Beinart
No, it is not peaceful. It is an antisemitic movement aimed at Jewish genocide
Freedom does not come free……
Honor those who gave their last full measure of devotion….
Perhaps nothing speaks more eloquently to the sacrifice of the soldier than President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address:
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
Just a question for the Middle East mavens:
If someone was violently trying to enter your house and they are screaming for your death as they do it, do you happily let them in, or do you shoot them before they breach the front door (remember they have been there before and have killed others of your children)?
Or do you have to wait and allow them to kill one of your children this time before you respond?
Or should you instead just offer them tea and cookies and hope for the best?
And has the world set different rules for you because of how you pray to God so everyone else in the world can defend themselves, but not your family?
