Alternative Reality - Destabilizing Morality

This Wednesday marks Israel's Memorial day for those who fell founding and defending the State of Israel, as well as civilians murdered by Arab terrorism. It is one of the most solemn days in Israel, even known as the "secular Yom Kippur" -- and most of Israel's population observes the day and respects it. Israel collectively embraces the families of the fallen, and air raid sirens commemorate the day with a gut piercing sound as Israel grinds to a halt and we recall those who gave their lives fighting against the Arab enemies of Israel.

And yet, there exists a new type of Israeli, who sees a moral equivalence between Israel's fallen, and those of the enemy. The IDF soldiers who died defending Israel and Israel's civilians who were brutally slaughtered by Arab terrorists are now commemorated in a morally-agnostic "Memorial Day Alternative Ceremony" -- sponsored by "Combatants for Peace"
"For the last 6 years "Combatants for Peace" has been holding a joint memorial event, to commemorate the Israeli and Palestinians victims of the conflict. This memorial service is attended by bereaved Israeli and Palestinian families and accompanied by artists." (CFPeace)
This "alternative ceremony" intertwines the truth with lies, fact with fiction, and morality with evil, by jointly memorializing the "Israeli and Palestinians victims of the conflict," and disgraces the memory of those who fought for the Jewish State.

Contorting history to "morally understand"  the "Palestinian Narrative" for the sake of a possible peaceful dialogue is bad enough.  Jointly memorializing IDF soldiers and victims of  Arab terror, with "Palestinian victims of the conflict" is simply too offensive to comprehend.

Those who wish to create such an alternative reality have no moral compass whatsoever.

Jameel:

Yours is one of the very few blogs I read every day. I enjoy and appreciate much of what you write and post, including your comments today.

BUT the scrolling jewishpress.com ad is extremely disconcerting and annoying.

Please get rid of it quickly.

Thank you.

There are two sorts of hypocrites: ones that are deceived with their outward morality and external religion; and the others are those that are deceived with false discoveries and elevation; which often cry down works, and men's own righteousness, and.
