From all tears that are cried about Israel and her citizens, a huge sea can be filled.
Sunday we were at Damsquare with our Pro Israel event, after a year of absence due to escalating violence towards us. In the meantime we had other events in other cities, but on sunday the Israeli flag once again waved proudly at the Damsquare.
It is fantastic to see, feel and experience the joy of the Israeli tourists that are visiting Amsterdam. Instead of the continuous hate, which they are welcomed with in Amsterdam by BDS movement (Boycott, divestment and sanctions) and Hamas supporters, they are welcomed with the winning Eurovision song festival song from Netta “Toy” . The sounds of Eyal Golan, Omer Adam, Sarit Haddad and others are filling the air, it is an explosion of happiness, joy and hope among the Israeli tourists attracted by the blue / white flag that can be seen from far away. Pictures are taken, we get compliments,drinks and many times you see people in tears, full of emotions.
We live in a world of hatred, jealousy, abuse of power by government leaders. Historically, hatred is unfortunately mainly focused on the Jewish people. That the Jewish Inhabitants of Israel are just normal people like you and me is less and less clear for the rest of the ignorant world.
They fall in the trap of the Propaganda that is widely spread by the Hamas, they condemn Israel, they call them aggressors, child killers, terrorists and even Nazi’s. Hamas stirs up their own population to rage against the Israeli soldiers, boys and girls who have to defend their country with blood, sweat and tears. Nobody in the world thinks about the fact that the Jewish people don’t have another country.
Nobody in the world thinks about the fact that these soldiers, are sons, daughters and spouses to someone, they do not see the tears that are shred in despair.
World you really think the Jewish people enjoy the fights and the tension between the Arab israeli’s and the Jewish population, You really think world, that the relatives of the soldiers are euphoric about the fact their son, daughter, husbands, wifes are in danger all the time. You really think world that the country that celebrates life, is cheering about casualties, even if these are terrorists?
This country, this amazing people are fighting for their right to exist, they are defending their borders and keep defending eretz Israel against a certain death.. When people that celebrates life must fight against people that are celebrating death, who would you choose ignorant World?
Look to the tears of the woman on Damsquare, look to the joy of the tourists in Amsterdam that see the Israeli flag proudly waving. See this people as humans, look further then just a video on the internet. See the truth, unite instead of condemn.
There have been enough tears from sadness, let there be tears from joy
