Born in South Africa.Educated at Jewish School,fully indoctrinated into Zionism.Made aliyah but left after 10years.The advent of the internet has changed my mind about the Zionist project.I try to learn as much as I can.None of my friends share my point of view.Everything I learn is strictly between me and my computer!I live in Antwerp,Belgium.
Many many moons ago I spent one night under this mans roof!
The year was 1976 and I befriended his daughter who was serving in the same IDF office as I was.
I was a ‘lone-soldier’ and it was a lovely gesture to have me spend some time in someones home and enjoy a home prepared meal.
I just remember the dad going off to work in the morning!
Anyway I think this is a really incredible gesture.
All the swivel-eyed loony settlers and other assorted wrong -thinking people must be gnashing their teeth-‘HOW VERY DARE HE!’
Quite surprised that that the Jewish Board of Deputies had the the wherewithal to condemn this report.
I’m a Jewish South African and I know first hand how unbelievably dedicated and unswerving are the Jewish population in their dedication to Zionism.
So well done to the South African Jewish Voices for a Just Peace for their brave move out of the tribal tent.
One can only hope and pray that Sweden will have the testicular fortitude to prevail.
There will be a lot of arm-twisting and teeth-gnashing in the background,a done deal this is not yet.
But it’s a GREAT start!
