Today is a dark day in my personal view of the world. The US vetoed a ceasefire on the Gaza assault. We’ve lost count of the numbers of dead. I’m in the process of getting a green card. I like this country. My son was born here. I like Americans. I’ve made some great friends here. So this is really difficult and hurtful, but I have to leave. I’m going crazy at the indifference.
I think of Jesus and how he was killed by Roman invaders under the watchful eyes of his fellow Jews. I think of how Jesus’s heart was broken and Judas. There are many Judases today in this world and it breaks my heart.

When I look at Netanyahu and I see his ministers who are calling for genocide and ‘Turning Gaza into a parking lot’, I don’t see descendants of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob. I see Polish and Eastern European crusaders.
When I see reporters in Gaza like Motaz Azaiza and other reporters risking their lives and about to be murdered by bombs made and paid for by US taxpayers, I can’t help feel that history is repeating itself.
