Take a stand

„Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must – at that moment – become the center of the universe.”
Elie Wiesel

Unfortunately, it is the matter of fact that antisemitism in Europe is on rise.

Personally, I have Jewish roots and I felt it on my skin.
Hence, a few days ago, some guy have asked me: “Oh you have Jewish roots, it means you are Gypsy?”
I was shocked.

Firstly, Gypsies are people who have been brutally murdered as well in WWII.
Furthermore, if I had some Gypsy blood I would be proud, why not?
Moreover, the only shame and crime is HATE.

Nevertheless, I am proud because I do not ask people about religion, race etc.…
However, I guess it is a matter of home education.
In addition, I hate none, but yes, I will raise voice if someone is discriminated against because of religion, race, different name or surname.
I will raise my voice when so called “brave” people attack those who are poor and weak.

Therefore, It is not about religion but humanity.
Hence, I will always take a stand and proudly support Israel, I won’t stay silent.
We have to talk about rising of antisemitism. It is shame, such a shame, especially for Europe.

Moreover, any time if someone attacks someone who you don’t know, don’t judge, be hummable, raise your voice and take a stand for justice. It is not human to be racist, to support antisemitism and discrimination.
It is shame. Frankly, I hope that you will wake up Europe because in your time so much evil is done to Jews.

Please take a stand, raise your voice, it is not hummable to stay silent when innocent people are attacked just because of religion, race or nationality.
„Without memory, there is no culture. Without memory, there would be no civilization, no society, no future.”
Elie Wiesel

Being silent and ignorant is crime, remember it. Be brave and take a stand.
