Jews hold know by now that turning the other cheek and going through life in denial does not work. In much of the world "right" is the result of "might" and weakness is exploited. Those of us who support liberal values and want to preserve the freedom we have because we live in a democracy with separation of church and state, with founding fathers who admired the Jews, need to stand up now before it is too late. We are blessed to live at a time in which Jews have been able to regain sovereignty over our ancient homeland after 2000 years of wandering.
Please stand up for Israel and stand up for the rights of women, religious freedom, artistic freedom (but not the freedom to spread hate) and equal rights before the law.
