in addition to this excellent video

this is excellent. In addition, I would say one thing we can all do, is to circulate this. See how we all have the ability to do something for Jews, for israel, and for the world.

Who's the real bully?

Many of us have this experience growing up. In elementary school, I also was picked on and whenever I defended myself, I too was portrayed as the bully and with antisocial problems. My parents really had to put up with alot of hassles from the Principal. It only ended when I completed elementary school and moved on to high school. Europe portrays Israel as the bully but neglects to mention that it was Hamas that rejected a cease fire and it's Hamas that continues to launch missiles into Israel, targeting civilians. Europe has returned to it's old antisemitic ways. Several non-Jewish Europeans have noticed this too. Old habits die hard. It's not about religion really, it's about prejudice and intolerance of anyone and anything different than themselves. A bigot is a bigot no matter how you slice it.

correlation between bullying and terrorism

Thank you for this video - right on the mark! For awhile I was thinking about this idea - how the world puts up with being bullied by terrorists and then wonders why their children get bullied in school. There is a lot to say about this but what I have heard is that if there is proper supervision (law enforcement) and the real bullies are severely punished, the problem goes away.

Memories

As the only Jewish child in my elementary school, that is EXACTLY what happebed to me. I had killed someone two thousand years ago who I had never heard of, but, by golly, I was going to get punished for it. The teachers NEVER saw any attack on me, but certaialnlly saw my reaction even if I hadn't hurt anyone. Then, after THREE YEARS of taking punishment, I lost my patience and lashed out. The principal told my parents that I was antisocial and needed psycholigiccal treatment. Fortunatelyu, they knew what I had been putting up with and read the principal the riot act. I fully understand and empathize with what israel has been going through and all i have to say is Baruch Hashem! It is beyond time. No other country would take the garbage that the Arabs have tossed at Israel without immediatey retailiating. I pray for the success of the IDF and the IAF. I just heard that an IDF soldier has been taken by Hamas. I hope he is safe and is returned alive and well.
