There are individuals in our lives who offer an opportunity to believe in the decency of the human spirit Elie Wiesel survived the Holocaust, he devoted his life fighting for the rights of humans throughout the world. There are those who suffer persecution and hatred, and learn from that experience to hate and persecute others. Ironically, Jews on the West Bank in Palestine never learned from the words of Elie Wiesel that those who experience the horror of hate, must never resort to that emotion towards those who are weak.
I once heard Elie Wiesel say in a speech, the wise man poses questions, the ignorant man provides answers. I wonder how those in Israel fail to heed those wise words by raising questions pertaining to their actions against Palestinians? How many Israelis are posing questions as to whether there are other options than those presently being followed by their government to attain peace. NO, those supporting Palestinians, are not perfect humans, yes, some have resorted to hate and violence. BUT, the fact there are evil Palestinians only makes it more important to support the mass of Palestinians who seek to have a homeland and live in peace with Israel. That would be the lesson one gains from the life of Elie Wiesel.
