This is the second installment of my ‘Then and now series’… an attempt for us to learn from historical facts and not repeat the blunders of the past.
Hatred is not a new concept… but it has survived the ages. That is not an indication that it is here to stay… it must be fought against and eliminated.
When hatred is expressed by the very people that were themselves hated, it is even worse. These people should know better and be in the forefront of the battle against it.
Below is a collection of photos and cartoons… of the walls at the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland, built by the nazis… and of the Apartheid wall separating Israel from Palestine…inspired by the nazis.
Just as the walls of Jericho ‘came tumbling down’, so will this one… and both our peoples will be free.

To see and hear a beautiful song in Hebrew and Arabic that was posted by Chet, click HERE…. it truly shows that there is hope…

    This apartheit wall WILL FALL .. just as the occupation WILL END! NO occupation throughout history lasted .. nor did any apartheit wall (the Chinese was NO apartheit wall!)! I really wonder what kind of mindset these people have .. to think with more and more force and cruelty they will achieve peace … what an UTTER STUPIDITY!! All they achieve is a time bomb, people in total despair, humiliated, hungry – THAT should bring peace to the other side?? Only a total ignorant can think so .. they should all take “Psychology 100” … they’re in dire need of that!!

    In the meantime – what’s left for us is NOT keep our mouth shut and give as much as possible support to the oppressed as possible … and you better believe – I will do just that!

    Good to see you Karin… thanks for the wonderful comment, and yes, it would be criminal for us to keep our mouths shut.
    Every crime against humanity must be exposed… no matter who commits it.. silence is comlacency and that equals guilt.
