I cannot summarize the Jewish history or Israel’s history in one letter. So I decided to bring you just a small and narrow point of view of the gap in life between my world and yours.
A few years ago I went to travel in Australia.
The first thing that ”hit” me was when I entered the shopping mall and there was no security guard at the entrance to search the people that goes inside the mall. It looked very strange to me because since I was a kid in Israel there are security guards everywhere. At shopping malls, at cinemas, at theaters, at schools, train stations, bus stations, coffee shops, restaurants, and so on…
I am not sure if you know the reason for all that security but it is very simple: Palestinian terrorists wants to get inside those places and bomb themselves in order to kill as many people as they can, no matter if it’s grown-ups or teenagers or kids or even babies.
I won’t tell you all the horror stories about things they did over the years, I just wish to show you how different my life and your life is.
I also don’t wish to get into the political argument but I think no innocent
man should get killed in any circumstance, no matter what that may be.
This call should be heard loud and clear all over the world.
I don’t blame you for not liking us so much.
I am sure that you know very little about what is really going on in Israel. But you have to believe me: we wish for a peaceful quiet life like you have and like people in every western country have. I can promise you that.
I can just only invite you to come here and travel here and enjoy all the great places we have here. I know it may sound strange after all the ”scary” stuff I said but I can assure you that Israel has a very high standard of security so it’s a safe place and a safe country.
