Never Again

Lucinda Marshall writes this following article:

“The time is long overdue for Jews to return to their role as the world's conscience, who come to the aid of the dispossessed, the wretched of the earth. Once again, we must join those who demand the end to unjust wars - in Iraq as well as Lebanon - and an unjust occupation in Gaza. We must honor the example of American civil rights workers Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, not that of the mass murderer Baruch Goldstein or Yigal Amir, killer of Yitzhak Rabin.”
As Jews we must rethink the meaning of Never Again and realize that it applies not only to our own religion but to all people, even those we see as enemies. We must finally accept that An Eye for an Eye has truly made us blind. Only then can we begin the long road to real peace and security in the Middle East.

The question is "Can we separate our Jewish Religion from our support of the State of Israel?" And, should we? At the very least we should recognize the conflict of interest we may have as a Jew versus being a supporter of Israel. At different times, we may go different ways, but we should at least be aware of each separate dimension.
