As we celebrate Pesach (Passover) this year, let us acknowledge the struggles of other people in this world, especially the Palestinians, who share land with many Jews. I have seen the top picture circulating around by fellow Jews this Pesach in recognition of the oppression of others. I found it strange, however, that the Palestinian struggle wasn’t being acknowledged.
When we say “next year, in Jerusalem!” What do we mean? Do we mean Jerusalem will be owned by Jews? Or do we mean “let all who struggle find justice and peace”? I will state this clearly and bluntly: Israel is a settler state, just like the United States. It is built on the blood of innocent people. Those people need their land back.
