Jews are not a European people; we are a Semitic people from the Middle East. Jews are not occupying foreign soil, we have returned to our ancient homeland. We are called “Jews” not because of Judaism, but because we once lived in Judea and Jerusalem was our capital. We lived as a people in our land for millennia. We saw the fall of the great pharaohs of Egypt and the rise of mighty Assyria. We suffered under the rule of Babylonia and our people defeated the Syrian-Greek Empire.
Our goal must not only be to advocate for Israel, but to tell the story of our people. The story of our kingdom destroyed, our bitter exile and our ultimate liberation. It is the story of the undying hope of a people for 2,000 years; a dream to live as a free people and return to our homeland. That is the story the world must hear again and again.
