The Crusades Revisited and Arab Duplicity on Palestine


A reflection on the Palestinian issue, influenced by historical Jewish experiences and cultural challenges.

Growing up in New York, I witnessed post-WW2 survivors, like Andrea, and the indelible Holocaust horror.

In 2009, post-Cast Lead, two humanitarian workers left Gaza with a Palestinian mother and her children.

Walking to a fortress wall in Gaza, guided by remote commands, under constant camera scrutiny.

Traversing high-tech security maze, watched by clerks, culminating in full-body scans and scrutiny.

Andrea was broken not just by the process but the company, witnessing the Palestinian family's trauma.

Gaza's conditions, akin to an open-air prison, shock even seasoned observers like Andrea.

Gaza stains the Jewish story, arrogance at West Bank checkpoints may jeopardize Israel's future.
