World, Please Do Not Forget . . .

When the UN General Assembly accepted the partitioning of Palestine [1], it gave those pieces of Palestine that held a majority Jewish population to the Jewish people for them to live on as their “homeland,” as promised them by G-d in the Old Testament [2].

Why?

Could it have been knowledge that the Arab nations surrounding that land would immediately attack and very likely wipe out that Jewish population [3]?

Could it have been that knowing the Arab nations’ plan to attack the Jews was the perfect solution to the UN’s dealing with the “Jewish Question”[4]?

Who knows?

What we do know is that because the United Nations anticipated that the Jewish State would last about five minutes after it was given to the Jewish People, because to its astonishment Israel survived, the United Nations determined they would stand against it [5] – after all, it was supposed to be an extremely temporary part of the landscape of the new Middle East.

But that was not G-d’s Plan.

We all viewed the videos of Gazan men dragging a “suspected” spy behind their motorcycle after killing him for “possibly” colluding with Israel [6].  What we haven’t seen is any human rights resolutions or war crimes tribunals at the UN for this crime.

What we have seen, however, is the UN rewarding Hamas’ unceasing rocket fire of Israel’s civilian population [7] and the lack of implementation of their own judicial system [8] with upgraded “observer status” at the UN [9].

My dear, loving, world, I beg you, please do not forget . . .

     . . . what happened when the Nazis came for the Communists                                                    and the world turned the other cheek?

      . . . what happened when the Nazis came for the mentally or physically challenged               and the world turned the other cheek?

     . . . what happened when they came for the Jews,                                                               and the world turned the other cheek?

     . . . what happened when they came for the Gypsies,                                                          and the world turned the other cheek?

     . . . what happened when they came for the non-heterosexual community,                    and the world turned the other cheek?

72 million lives were lost [10]

SEVENTY-TWO (72) mill-l-l-l-ion-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n.

Do not think that hatred and terrorism stops at Israel’s borders . . . [11]

Do not think that prejudice and bias stop at the UN . . .[12]

It is everywhere [13].

   We must work to combat it.

            We must work for worldwide brother- and sisterhood.

                        Please . . . Do not forget that what affects those on one side of the world    may affect us tomorrow . . .

Do not forget . . .

Tomorrow is only a few hours away . . .

We can do it . . .

We must . . . if not for the sake of humanity, for ourselves . . .

For as Rabbi Hillel once said,

“If I am not for myself, then who will be for me?

And if I am only for myself, then what am I?

And if not now, when?”

Please, World, Do Not Forget!
