Their Heroes and Ours…

There is inside of me a part that thinks our greatest victory, even if the world does not recognize it, is simply that we are not like them.
Natan Sharansky has always been one of my heroes. Here he is pictured with his mother after his release from prison in the Soviet Union. He landed in Israel on February 11, 1986.

I will keep saying this to myself…each time Bibi Netanyahu releases more murderers. To ask the obvious question – how would he feel if someone freed Yoni’s killers is not a fair comparison, though Bibi would readily put forward a politician’s opinion about peace and compromise. Yoni Netanyahu was not murdered; he was not a victim. He was a brave fighter who fell in battle. What pride can a family take in knowing their father, husband, and grandfather was murdered from behind with an axe? They can take pride in his life, the things he valued and loved but in his death? No.

And so I’ll say it again – I would rather live with the pain and sadness of this day of surrendering to politics and stupidity, than live in a culture where today they celebrate. If, like me, today angers you and hurts you – just look at our heroes, and look at theirs.

May God bless the land and people of Israel with the ability to survive the leadership of those who forget that you can’t buy peace, not even with our blood.
