The First Night

Sarah Tuttle-Singer

{Sarah Tuttle-Singer is the Times of Israel New Media editor. - ML}

Tonight is the First Night of Passover and as the news comes in from the Gazan border, I’m thinking about this:

Our enemies have dehumanized us throughout the centuries – they call us vermin, they call us filth.

We must not do that

We must not celebrate death.

We should celebrate life.

Because we are a people who believe in the sanctity of life – so much so that we even diminish our joy when we remember the ten plagues during Passover by pouring out wine.

We must not dehumanize and call people “animals” or “garbage.”

Not even terrorists.

No matter how disgusted or how angry we are.

We should mourn our dead together, and celebrate our continued survival as a just and moral people, together.

Because when the Egyptians were drowning in the sea, God told the angels not to sing songs of praise.

I know we are only human – but so is everyone.

  3. "The killing of Palestinian demonstrators by Israeli forces in Gaza is tragic. It is the right of all people to protest for a better future without a violent response." Bernie Saunders.

    It's not like they want all of Israel and the right to decapitate 3 month old settler babies is it? They're only human , right. Vote for Bernie and get a metal throat protector.

    1. This is a funded propaganda campaign using humans as fodder. "Palestine" is a huge lie.
      It was evident during the presidential campaign that Bernie hasn't got a clue, so no surprise there.

    2. A Sanders presidency would be a disaster for world Jewry. Because he is so ugly toward Israel himself it would represent a signal to everyone that it's open season on Israel and her defenders.

  4. If she did not do this all the time, this could have been a meaningful post. But she is such an apologist for terrorists that this post ends up being another instance of virtue signaling.

    2. A look at sober look at the pro-Hamas western reporting might help.

    3. Come around when Gazans breach the border and slit Jewish throats en masse? Perhaps. But remember, according to Bernie et al they just wants better lives. Dead Jews help accomplish that.

  5. I think we're all too aware that they are humans. Who else pulls such stunts?
    Can we call them crude, cruel, vicious, inhumane, supremacists, Jew-hating murderers?
    May we call them backward, retrograde, medieval? How about ugly?

    Mr. Cohen responds:

    Hundreds of millions of Muslims alive today sincerely believe that Jews are apes and pigs, or descendants of apes and pigs.

    Whether or not this is an accurate reading of the Koran is not relevant; what matters is that hundreds of millions of Muslims believe it.

    Please save your “we must not dehumanize” speech for the people who need it the most: MUSLIMS!

  7. It is a proper sentiment that for the Palestinians to simply show up at the Gaza border is not a reason to kill them. However, it is equally necessary to point out that there is a line that the Palestinians could cross in doing so that would warrant deadly force, as was tragically demonstrated when that demonstration happened. We must also protest those like Bernie and the media who push the notion that there is no such line that they could cross or refuse to examine any evidence of them crossing it in order to condemn Israel for a "disproportionate" response.

    1. That may be the most concise and reasonable assessment that I have seen thus far. If I borrow it, I will give you full acknowledgment.

  8. Total number of Muslim nations: 57

    Total number of Arab nations: 22
    (with total land area 350 times the size of Israel)

    Total number of Jewish nations: 1
    (65% the size of New Jersey, one of the smallest states)

    If a Palestinian State were created,
    it would be the 58th Muslim country
    and the 23rd Arab country.

    Israel’s “West Bank” has been an almost-completely-self-governing Palestinian area since 1995.

    The same is true of Gaza since 2004.

    Last but not least, Jordan (a nation more than three times the size of Israel) was part of the British Mandatory Palestine, and was originally intended to be part of the homeland for the Jewish people. Jordan ** IS ** Palestine.

  9. One wonders how many Dems/Leftists, usual suspects pray the Gazans breach the Israeli border. I betcha the numbers are huge.

  10. The great thing about human shields is they present a large stable target to shoot at. And if they get shot they die doing what they loved and the rest of us get a few fewer violent Nazi retards.

  11. It's amazing how conditioned some of these people are. To believe the worst about Israel, no matter what, no matter that what others do while they look the other way. Then they complain about human rights, as their anti-Israel partners violate women, children as normal as day. The words of the critics are empty.

    They are prey to fake news and so uninformed about fundamentals. Their ability to confront the world as it actually exists, where others are not seeking safe spaces, but purposeful in pursuit of power, is scary to consider.

    It's really foolish to think that policy should be guided as if utopia is now here. Especially by people detached from the everyday existence of most, too privileged to understand basic human nature. Thinking whatever they have was stolen. In their utopia, Palestinians love Jews. That should say it all right there.

    One should no more trust their views than trusting what a teenager says about the inner workings of democracy and what constitutes morality.

  13. I can imagine in a far off era when there really is a Free Democratic Islamic People's Republic of PLOistan and this is how people settle their disputes with the phone company or a dispute with their neighbor over a fenceline. Just march over their dead bodies by the thousands, burn their houses down, behead the fleeing women and children and then squat in the dust screaming, tears running down their filthy faces that someone owes them recompense.
