Opinion

Proud To Support the Jewish State

This summer was awful for my many friends in Israel. I spent two weeks with a few dozen of them during the defensive operation “Protective Edge” which they were forced to fight. Young men and women – in their early to mid-twenties, leaving their school, their job, their family to put on the uniform of the Israel Defense Forces and fight Hamas – an enemy that targets civilians from “the other side” and then uses civilians on “their side” as human shields to protect themselves. My friends gave first-hand accounts of how they risked their lives to preserve innocent life of Palestinians in Gaza. And also how they fought with determination to ensure that their lives and those of their countrymen were safe. Comments (0)
