Isn't it pretty?

It's Not Easy...

Being Jewish. I'm not talking about all the restrictions of keeping halachot, though that certainly isn't easy either. But what's so hard is watching the news lately and seeing Israel trying to desperately to defend its citizens, and hearing the world denounce them for it. And it all boils down to the fact that we are Jewish. First, I will admit that I wouldn't feel as strongly or have such a difficult time if it wasn't Israel that was going through this, if it was some other country on some random continent whose citizens have nothing in common with me. Maybe it's not right, but it is just the way it is (and it happens every day, which just goes to prove it). But it hurts to know that there are those out there who want to wipe out Israel because it is a Jewish nation. Who want to kill other human beings due only to the religion that they were born into. That they would stoop to kill civilian children, kidnap teenage soldiers (when will they release them?) and any other person just because they happen to be Jewish. It sucks, to be blunt. And it sucks sitting here with nothing that I can do other than read the news online and pray as hard as I can that it will be over very, very soon.
