I debated when it came time to fill this drawer in the cabinet. Do I write about the past two weeks in Israel? How can I not? Do I offer my opinion? Possibly. Do I want to engage in a discussion of the many rights and wrongs? Toward what end? Does it enhance anyone’s now to bring war into this space? You decide.
In the end, I gathered links to articles and information that are rarely shared by the American press.

Some people, no matter how clearly, factually you provide black and white evidence, choose to remain stuck in their hatred. I blocked someone (a distant cousin who found me on 23&me) on FB. I sent him the Hamas Charter, the BLM manifesto. His heels are dug in. So much for self-hating Jews 🙁
Facts, shmacts. I think that for some people, hatred
is comfortable. Hatred doesn’t ask us to reflect or look
inward. Hate is powerful feeling; I guess nurturing it gives
some folks the senses that they, too, are powerful. A waste.
