The Survival of the Jews


When we were led into the gas chamber, YOU said nothing.
When we were forcibly converted, YOU said nothing.
When we were thrown out of a country just for being Jews, YOU said nothing.
When we now defend ourselves, all of a sudden YOU have something to say.

How did we take our revenge on the Germans for their Final Solution?
How did we take revenge on the Spanish for their Inquisition?
How did we take revenge on Islam for being Dhimmis?
How did we take revenge on the lies of the Protocols of Zion?

We studied our Torah.
We innovated in medicine.
We innovated in defense systems.
We innovated in technology.
We innovated in agriculture.
We made music.
We wrote poetry.
We made the desert bloom.
We won Nobel prizes.
We founded the movie industry.
We financed democracy.
We fulfilled the word of Hashem by becoming a light unto the Nations of the Earth.

So, world, when you criticize us for defending our heritage and our ancestral homeland, we the Jews of the world do exactly what you did.
We ignore you.
You have proven to us for the last 2,000 years that when the chips are down, you don't care.
Now leave us alone and go sort out your own backyard whilst we continue our 5784-year-old mission--enhancing the world we share.
