The High Holy Days is the traditional Jewish period for making peace with one’s neighbor. It is a time for forgiveness and starting a new page in relationships with each other.
But, how are we to forgive what is unforgivable. How are we expected to forgive a group of Jewish extremists who maim and kill, even burn to death innocent Palestinian children?
How are we to forgive Palestinian extremists who open fire at innocent civilians waiting for a train in Jerusalem??
Extremism is unforgivable!
Murder is unforgivable!!
Piracy is unforgivable!!!
All stemming from apartheid which is the root cause of these sins.
On this, the eve of the holiest day on the Hebrew calendar, Jews throughout the world will begin the Holiday with the chanting of Kol Nidre …
Both Jews and Muslims pound their chest when begging their God for forgiveness ….
In both cases it is meaningless if the sins are repeated as soon as the prayers are over.
It is time for a REAL forgiveness …. a time for a REAL Peace, based on understanding and love.
It is time to end the madness that is destroying the world!
