US Jews protest Israel's actions
"Israel has already violated the U.N. cease-fire resolution and continues to violate international law and basic human rights on a daily basis in Gaza and the West Bank," said Samantha Liapes of San Francisco. "As American Jews of conscience, we cannot stand by silently as crimes against humanity are perpetrated in our name. We call on U.S. Jewish Institutions to stop funding Israeli terror and start funding the rebuilding of Lebanon and Gaza."
These kinds of 'speaking out' is the kind I grew up with. Just being part of a group, nationality or sharing of religious or cultural membership, does not absolve one of speaking out against wrongdoings by people of one's 'own'. In fact, that is when it counts that one does.. speak out.
