I’m Jewish

Peace Sign

I’m Jewish. I didn’t live through the Holocaust, but growing up it’s part of my education to NEVER FORGET.

I’m Jewish. I don’t hate Muslims. I don’t think they should be banned from the US. I don’t think they should have to register or have to live in Ghettos.

Donald Trumps rhetoric terrifies me to the core. I have never seen such hatred in my life. I am sickened by the irony that his own daughter, who married a Jew, is Jewish (she converted).

At first I laughed off some of Trumps rhetoric as just trying to get a rise out of people and get higher in the polls, but now I’m terrified. I’m terrified that when he’s compared to Hitler he’s not bothered by that comparison.

I’m Jewish, and I welcome Muslims and people of all faiths, creeds, sexual orientations, colors to be my neighbors, play with my son and be my friend.

We have a common enemy and that’s not Islam or Muslims, it’s Da’esh (aka ISIS/ISIL) and Al Qaeda. Only if we stand together will we be able to stop these maniacs. And to be honest, we must start by stopping the maniac at home first. That maniac is Donald Trump.
