Because we choose life…

17 10 2011

1941 days…. 1 day left… tomorrow he is getting home.

I said I won’t say anything, I won’t write about it, but I can’t just not say anything.

Yes! We are living in  a crazy world, a deal like this is crazy to begin with, 1027 killers with blood on their hands, 1027 killers that any other country would’ve probably killed a long time ago, 1027 killers for one boy! Unimaginable!  But do-able!

Crazy? YES!

Insane? Abso-fu**ing-lutely!!

Cruel, you ask??? I’ld most definitely say so!!

A mistake? NO! That one NO!!! WHY?  And who am I to say that?  Yes, is true, I didn’t loose anyone in my close family to terrorist attacks and I hope I never will, I lost an uncle, killed by arabs he worked with, and no, I don’t take that easy, but NO!

We don’t choose death, we choose life, we fight for it, we fight for liberty, for truth, for freedom, we fight for Gilad, because the life of one, no matter who that soldier is, is more important than revenge. Because we choose to believe that we are better than that, because we want from all this wrong one thing to thriumph in the end and that is LIFE!

It was a bold thing to do, an impossible deal to make, a crazy unimaginable agreement to sign, sent like from the depths of hel itself, kind of Sophie’s Choice, but this is the cruel reality we are living and dealing with, and between two wrongs, we choose the less evil of them two, we choose to save a life, to save a soul, we choose one family to save, the only one there is left to save. No one says Gilad is more important and as cruel as it sounds, he is the only one alive now!

My heart goes out to everyfamily that has lost a son, a daughter, a mother, a brother, a sister,parents, grandparents, but by keeping their killers in prison (and let’s not talk about their unbelievable conditions!)  it won’t bring them back, but we CAN stop another family to go through the same hell, we can stop the Shalit family from having the same destiny by bringing him home, NOW!

I don’t applaud the deal, I don’t applaud the release of cold blood murderers, I don’t celebrate releasing killers, as Netanyahu said, and I so much agree with that, I really don’t!   But I applaud Netanyahu!

I stand up and applaud him! For the courage to say „It is time to get this boy home!”, „It is time to do the unthinkable, the bold, the courageous!”, „It is time to even have negotiations with terrorists, if that is what it takes to bring this boy back home.”      We are probably the only country in the world that has agreed to negotiate with terrorists, let’s not speak about signing a deal, but that makes us so much more human, so much more alive and heroic, that makes Netanyahu go up the ladder so many steps in my eyes.

For him, one life is more important than 1027 terrorists! 1 Israeli for 1027 Phalestinians. Think about it!! That speaks louder than words.

This deal is maybe crazy, maybe insane, maybe cruel, but infact what our Prime Minister has done it is simply to celebrate a jewish life!

And for that the whole Israel should applaud him!! I know I DO!
