As events continue to unfold in Syria and the world looks on, wondering what to do, I too wonder…what would we do if the atrocities heaped upon the Jews by Hitler…were to play out in today’s society?
Would we vacillate about Hitler…as we are vacillating about Asad?
Would we allow German Jews to be killed by non-German Jews…as we sit by and watch pro-government Syrians murder those opposed to the government?
Would we complain of war weariness having fought one world war…as we are complaining of the several wars already fought in the Middle East?
Would we stand by as Jews are gassed to death…as we now watch as Syrians are poisoned by lethal chemicals?
Do we value Syrians less than we value Jews? Or do we value others’ lives…
…less than we value our own?…
