Genocide article/video

As a Jewish born South African, this article further motivates my decision to not believe in god, all gods, any god. No omnipotent, omniscient and all loving being would condone a single genocide, never mind many. Any other argument is moot, just this one aspect invalidates the possible existence of a god. There is no such thing, sad, but true. Faith, belief, and religion are simply hope in the good and humanity of civilised society. All we can do is try, in our own personal capacity to be kind to each other. No god to protect us.. we should channel the energy from religion into trying to salvage humanity.

Not So

G-d does not condone genocide. Free-will requires that we make the choices. But you are correct that the solution is for each of us to "try, in our own personal capacity to be kind to each other".

How?

Fight genocide? Wonderful! Now, how are we supposed to do that? We're not the military, nor are we politicians. As somebody, who has a B.A. in Poltical Science, I know that politics is about power. If there's genocide somewhere in the world, it's usually because the world powers choose not to get involved. Either because they have no serious interest in stopping it, or they're afraid of losing their soldiers to violence. But if anybody has a viable peace plan, great, I'm listening.

As a twenty year Jewish veteran, I am dismayed by the low Jewish participation . . .

. . . in the US armed services. Most people do not realize that the political decisions to go to war (and possibly STOP genocide) are largely influenced by the decisions in the Pentagon. Because of the vast money involved, the thinkers and decision makers in the military industrial complex must have persuasion from both within and without their organizations. Simply put, without Jewish Generals to lend Jewish moral persuasion to internal discussions, Never Again is just an empty plea from powerless victims. The IDF should be the Americal Jewish model and ideal for all our military age young men and women.

Why is our generation different from any other??

#NEVERAGAIN Is now #MAYBEAGAIN I live in the USA... our welcome here is slowly ebbing away. I have an elderly mother here... how can I go to the land that I know I must go & want to go?? What is scary is that most Jews here don’t see the signs... or don’t want to see them, albeit they are crystal clear.

You pointed your finger at Obama and Clinton in your video: "Never again, Never Again." But not a single condemnation over children in cages with Trump. And what about some shock over both Busch administrations for the evil in the world during their terms. Shame on you...

How enforcing immigration policies is a genocide? how can you compare that, even if we are not agree with it,even if is not the most humane way, to the atrocities shown in this video?
