I am one jealous Jew
First as a Jew I am jealous of how rapidly the black community banded together to have a world wide demonstration against being murdered for being black. Why am I jealous? Because Jews being killed by the nazis went quietly without marching En mass against the nazi party. I wish as a Jew we had the same passion as the black community.
On an other note I notice how when people report about the marches they bend themselves into a pretzel to make sure we know that every black person was not a rioter and that was an evil group that infiltrated the peaceful blacks. Now as a Jew I have to wonder why when asked who killed Jesus how easy it is to say Jews. One syllable Jews. No pretzel bending to say there were peaceful Jews and the Sanhedrin and sadducees asked to kill Jesus. Nope no pretzel bending. Jews.
I think think this message is taught mainly by Catholic Church although my believing friends say the same thing but quickly add it’s our sins that killed Jesus. If all Jews killed Jesus all blacks burnt and looted stores and all police hunt blacks.
Thanks for letting me vent. Interested in your take.
It's A Girl!
With all the strife and turmoil in the world, G-D has never failed me and always gives me something to hold to when things appear their darkest. This time G-D has given me a new grandchild---IT'S A GIRL! And just in time! After seeing the senseless ransacking of businesses, the taking of innocent lives and the rioting, I started wondering if there was any goodness, honesty or innocence left in the world.
Then G-D gave our family new hope & new life in the form of a baby girl with an angelic face and a beautiful little smile to remind me (I'm convinced), that all is not lost and HE is still in control. My youngest Son and his wife just had their first child and what a blessing she is! My faith is refreshed and restored!
I am reminded of what G-D tells us in Jeremiah 29:11. Don't take my word for it, look it up, read it and keep the faith!
