Who lost the debate?
Well, the world is falling apart,
the economy is tanking
and our two Presidential candidates
were smiling all over the place
and acting buddy buddy
like this was some sort of prep school high school debate.
My friend yesterday asked me yesterday, do I consider myself a Jew to which I responded, “yes.” I asked him the same thing, to which he responded, “yes.”
We both asked almost at the same time, “why do you consider yourself a Jew?”
We had the same exact thought: ‘Because if and when it happens again, all Jews, religious, non-religious and even atheists, will be on the same side of the barbed wire fence.’
…. and we the same thought next: “Not this time.”
David Harris message today, from AJC:
“tomorrow …on the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will unleash his anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and anti-democratic message on an audience of world leaders at the UN General Assembly.”
May all wake up to the sounds of the Shofar and the world be at peace this coming New Year.
If you tell me you ‘tolerate’ me, my religion, belief or lifestyle,
I will tell you to piss off,
and not give you the time of day.
If you tell me you respect me, my religion, belief or lifestyle,
I will welcome you with open arms,
and I will give you the same respect in return.
