“Regrettably liberals too often remain strangely silent about the excess of leftist governments. I think that is because leftist governments clothe themselves in such lofty language that their good intentions are taken as an article of faith, no matter how brutal or barbaric their actions may be.” ~ Ed Koch
I’m told that the former New York City Mayor also said that Jews should be the first to recognize and stand against persecution because of their own history of being persecuted so many times in so many places, the painful memory of it is woven into their DNA.
But does the strange liberal silence Koch observed trump the responsibility of the Liberal Jew in matters of persecution? Can it even be genetically possible for any liberal Jew to knowingly support any government, leftist or otherwise, that not only turns the blind eye to persecution, but legislates it domestically while it aids, abets and arms it globally? Look and see for yourself!
I sent this powerful eyewitness testimony about the persecution of Christians in our own military to one of my closest liberal Jewish friends. It had absolutely no affect on her…she couldn’t “understand” why I asked her to watch it!
We are in a time and place I never saw coming. It is a place so dark and horrible I am literally afraid to find the words to describe it. But here goes…I can actually see my friend turning on me. I saw the title “On being tortured and executed by the one you love most” up on Ann’s wall the other day and I swear it brought my friend instantly to mind. It made me realize that our lives are mini Passion play copies of the original. We go around and around and around in a perpetual neurotic whirl of love/hate acting as if we’ve never been here before…knowing that we have!
I don’t guess it’s always darkest before the dawn…I know it is!
