if the world would only acknowledge these facts, it would be the beginning of a Tikkun for a very sick Olam

Because I am visiting my grandchildren in a different state on the way to Israel, I don't have the same access to a computer as I would at home. Therefore, wherever I can I plan to plagiarize other peoples' works, heheh - just kidding - I will post interesting items as I receive them, and of course - hakarat ha-tov - give credit where credit is due. This is verbatim from my colleague M. in London. Yes, it's that M., from double-oh-seven fame. (Ya didn't know I was so well-connected, did ya?)

So if you will, assimilate this:

The Jews are not demonstrating with their dead on the streets, yelling and chanting and asking for revenge.

The Jews are not promoting brainwashing of children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non Muslims.

The Jews don't highjack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics.

The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

The Jews don't have the economical strength of the Petroleum, nor the possibilities to force the world's media to see "their side" of the question.

My prayer to the Almighty - In the coming year, may the Muslims begin to invest more in normal education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems. This would undoubtedly make the world a better place for all of us. Surely YOU can move their hearts and minds to do so?"

Great message. But my cynical side keeps thinking of the exchange from Fiddler on the Roof, when Perchik says that someday the rich people's money would be theirs, and Tevye responds "If they would be willing, I would be willing!"

Would that those who really need to hear this messge, would listen to it!

Golda Meir once said somethig to the effect of we can only have peace once the arabs love their children more than they hate us!
G'mar Chasima Tova!
Thanks for the poignant message.

Please forgive me for not commenting on your comments in a timely fashion! I am at my daughter's mercy (!), caring for the grandkids and cooking for the upcoming chag, so NO TIME.
Elie: Absolutely. I've said time and time again, I feel as if we are all preaching to the converted. Those who need to get the message, don't. What to do? Keep preaching, and showing correct behavior, morals and ethics by example.
Kasamba: Good to hear from you! Yes, that is a very famous statement she made; still true today. (In other words, there has been no change in the enemy whatsoever!)
SWFM: Thank you; it was my source, M. of London, who sneaked it to me. I never reveal my sources...!
