    We were oppressed and abused since time immemorial and now we see within our own nation, abusers and torturers of those weaker than ourselves. Is this what we have become?. Where are the Rabbonim to speak out for the millions of us who are sickened by this kind of Racist abuse. Where are the millions, marching in Israel to have this scum driven from the land. Is this what our ancestors blood was given up for? Can we not feel, just for a second even how threatening our behavior is and this will only get worse as the settlers fight back, killing innocent Palestinians and no doubt stepping it up a notch to kill both IDF and Palestinians . Consecration of Holy sites, be it Christian, Muslim , Jewish or any center of worship is just plain evil. I truly believe that those who are found to be active in this dehumanizing of Palestinians and their religious beliefs should be thrown in a jail for a very long time and those born outside Israel should be sent back home in handcuffs, to Eastern Europe and to the USA. Today like many other days it seems, I am deeply ashamed to call myself a Jew. I know these criminals, these vermin, these racist thugs and right now I wish I was a Palestinian. Doesn't that say something for someone who loves Israel and so many of it's people? Stand up today and be counted before it's too late for any of us.
