Do Not Be Silent

Writing Every Day for Thirty-One Days
to Speak Life over Israel

While much of the earth is speaking death and accusation over the Jewish nation, let’s take 31 days to do the opposite. Let’s speak life over the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.

Day 24: Silence

When the poor suffers
The peoples cry out
When injustice is prevalent on every side
Nations lift their voices
Yet when Israel suffers,
the world is eerily silent

Every time
Every generation
when Jews suffer
those standing against injustice
fall strangely silent

Every generation
when Jews suffer
the blame games begin
The lies of Jew hatred are told

Another generation
of the descendants
of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob suffer loss

So few care
And so many justify
This vile loathing

Over and over and over again
Hatred of Israel rises and falls

Today Jew hatred
is rising again
A tide of anti-Semitism
is slowly overtaking
and we must fight back

We cannot remain silent
We cannot stick our heads in the mud
or cover our eyes and ears
and ignore Israel’s situation

A Jewish nation is treated
as Jews have been treated
Over and over again

This hatred is the same
and we must stand against it
with our voices, our actions
and our lives

Join those who are awake
and willing to stand
on Israel’s behalf
