Feeling the hate from “our” side

Posting two links that coincidentally attracted a similar header despite being experiences of two very different people from different parts of the world (Australia, USA) in contact with two quite different facets (university students, ultra-orthodox) of the one country (Israel). Posting the links in the interest of providing one more avenue for letting the other side of the story get an airing among western audiences.

Reporter feels mob’s hate in Holy City — raining spit.

Feeling the hate in Tel Aviv — cosmopolitan Israelis share their views.

For a more positive view of Israelis and slivers of hope I recommend Googling the words Jews and peace or Jews for peace.

    For a contrast see this article on Jewish values http://mondoweiss.net/2009/07/tema-okun.html .
    I must say that I do have Jewish freinds who work with me on solidarity with Palestine. Of course in finality it’s human values that matter and it doesn’t matter what religion a person has or what ethnicity they feel they belong to.

    What a refreshing article! Thanks for posting it. (I would only comment that the values expressed are not so much “Jewish” as simply “human” — or ought to be.)
