"The problem here is a totalitarian uniformity, a cult-like mentality such that even allies are enemies if they fail to follow the Exact Party Line. " - Phyllis Chesler

I'm Tired

Dear God,

I'm tired of a world like this. We are a peace loving people and yet we never get a peaceful rest from the fear of being slaughtered.

I'm tired of living in a world that allows even one Muslim to execute the Nazi salute and shout, "We want to kill all the Jews, all the Jews should be slain, they have no right to exist!" Without being challenged by the rest of the world strongly and denouncing those that speak this way. This was said in Denmark this week god. In my lifetime. After growing up hearing "never again"...again it is happening.

The world is mad.

I'm tired of living in a world where millions of people continue to justify a culture of people who take their own children and use them as human shields simply to gain support against a race of people they wish to wipe into extinction.

I'm tired of living in a world where the media refuses to report the daily missle attacks against my people day in and day out for years and years and years but is all too happy to report when my people are forced to act in defense against those who are attacking us, and when we have no choice but to accept that some civilians will be killed in defending ourselves from the stockpile of missles that are being shipped in by Iran and through secret tunnels from Egypt just so that an entire race of people can carry out their call to wipe out another entire race of people, my people.

I'm tired god.

Dear god where are the people of the world who will stand for us and stand with us for peace?

Dear god please make them stop forcing us to kill their children.

Dear god, I just want my life back. I want my birthright to live peacefully and for as long as my body will allow, to carry out my passions and to experience love, to bring children into this world and to continue to share friendships and relationships with all people of all cultures and religions in peace.
