The world is once again going after the Jews. What side are you on? Would you have pertected the Jews In Europe? Would you have said nothing? Or would you have risked it all to protect a people, race and religion?
Would you put up a yard sign saying, I STAND WITH ISRAEL? Would you go to a holocaust museum or temple to show your support? Will you reach out to Jews in your area? Will you write a post on your blog to show you side with Israel? To say and do nothing in the face of evil in and of itself evil.
Being a German Lutheran in my 40's I've heard the stories of the holocaust. Some of my friends grandparent lived through it. They told me of the people that said and did nothing. No one wanted to believe that it could happen. The one thing that rang true with all of them is, they did nothing in the beginning. Their heads were in the sand. But hind sight is 20/20.
To think this would never happen again is ignorant. It always happens and it's always the Jews that have been persecuted throughout history. Will you make a stand now as too never let this happen again?
