As passionate as people are today about standing loud and proud for what they believe in, all I see is good. Sure sometimes there needs to be more education on all sides, and all of us to take a step away from our perspective to really listen to people around us. Overall the dialogue and search for truth is a good thing. Today there was an amazing conversation from multiple people that had completely different backgrounds. We were all really trying to understand each other, yet also be clear about our stance and why we feel the way we do.
I am Jewish.
I stand with Israel.
The writer of the article above is a Lebanese Arab that lives in Canada, Fred Maroun. I respect his words and feel happy that someone that grew up completely differently than me can articulate and explain why Israel is a unique light in this world.
STAND WITH ME!
