The Jewish people is becoming its own enemy!
By Avrum Rosenseweig

As Jews we grew up knowing our fanatical enemies would use our tombstones as toilet seats, that they would shoot men, women and children indiscriminately when angered.

We would bemoan their cruelty and find it almost impossible to fathom their level of brutality. Their way was anathema to Godliness and our teachings of civility.

It was then the Jewish people could ask the world, "how is it you stand by while we are humiliated and our families are shot at and killed on West Bank roads?"

Even those Jews who disagreed with settler ideology felt their pain when they buried their dead, because they were our dead.

Through all of this pain, we kept our Jewish compassion intact and rarely did we hear about brutality perpetrated against our adversaries by a member of our own people.

Sadly, this has changed.

Leading up to the evacuation of "The House of Contention," countless masked Jews have been involved openly and smugly in acts of utter cruelty.

In one situation, Jews set fire in and around a Palestinian home comprising 20 people, many of them children. Security guards form the nearby settlement Kiryat Arba sealed off the entrance to the Palestinian home, preventing assistance.

The crazed un-Jewish behavior continued.

Men - their faces covered as well - hurled rocks down onto the family dwelling while children cried bitterly inside, fearing for their death.

The back of the house was on fire. Groups of Jews stood by and watched, according to reports, "suggesting to the stone throwers ways of effectively harming the family."

I am nauseous just knowing this.

My God, we now have brutes within our nation with the ability - and worse, the desire - to terrorize children, remembering full well the fear in our family?s eyes as they watched thugs breaking down our Jewish doors.

I am ashamed and disappointed. My liberal views about the West Bank and its association to Israel have nothing to do with this article. Nothing!

I must only ask: At what point did Israeli activists turn into vicious thugs blinded by hate?

When was that moment when so many Jews decided it was okay to desecrate Muslim tombstone (like they did to us), to torch fields, to terrorize mothers and children with fire arms, to scribble the Magen David on their mosques?

We were not a violent people. We never danced and sang while our foes suffered. When did we become our enemy?

If the citizens of Hebron are to win their battle, how will they celebrate and live their successes?

If many of their members have fallen to a place where 'the other' is a non-human in their eyes, what will be the character and ideology of Yesha?

How will this influence all Jewish people?

I appeal to the leadership of Yesha to calm the minds and souls of their frontline Jews.

Tell them yelling 'Na.zi' at our soldiers is a reflection of self-loathing and a toppling from the highest rung of ka'vod (respect) for ourselves.

Remind them to ask, if we no longer run to scrub blood off our hands, but instead see it as a badge of honor, what are we as Jews?

Let them know we cannot erase the atrocities we have committed but we can stop ourselves from loosing more moral footing.

The victory of Chanukah is a victory of our resilience, both spiritually and physically.

If the Jewish people loose the upper hand, the core of our Jewish spirit, humility and compassion, what have we as we approach this season but a holiday without light?
