Speaking of Syria, Eliyahu Kamisher, a student at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, recently entered Syria and spent a week meeting opponents of the Assad regime, both secular and Islamist.
Writing at The Times of Israel, he makes the case that supporting the secular opposition (in its struggle against both the regime and the Islamists) is not only good for the people of Syria, it is (as the saying goes) good for the Jews.
The Jewish and Israeli people must show that they support the Syrian people; that they are not alone and that even in the supposed “Little Satan,” we hear their cries and feel their pain. Western military support may increase, as has been seen in recent days, but this military support needs to be met with equal and greater vocal and humanitarian support from the Jewish people.
Kamisher has helped launch a Facebook page, Jews for a Free Syria, to promote the cause. Check it out and give it a “Like.”
