Jew hatred on a Facebook page

Photo I took in Israel 2010

I was just about to go to bed.  I’ve been on a great 7 hours of sleep a night run with the help of a mentor.
Another mentor has been coaching me with my finances.
And a whole slue of mentors in my life, working together (though not all of them know each other - yet) are helping me to expand my comfort zone. 

So, when I intended this week to expand myself by 2xs, I didn’t realize I’d get this task.
But, today is my day to post, and as I take a deep breath, I will just go with it and put my faith in the goodness of my heart.

In my micro-cosmic world, I am flying high.  But in the macro-cosmic world, Liz Taylor has just died, Celebrities are unraveling, unrests are uprising and radioactive worlds are colliding.

And I check my email before bed to read the following:

Subject: “Fwd: Jew hatred on a Facebook page..IMPORTANT”
Body:

“Hi,

I received this message to forward:

A Facebook page was created calling for a 3rd “Intifada” on Israel.

For those unfamiliar with this term they are calling for the Arab world to take over Israel by force.  The last Intifada resulted in 18 deadly terror bombings and hundreds of Israelis (both Jews and Arabs) maimed and murdered.

The number of people clicking on the “Like” button is increasing every hour (this evening they had 229,288 likes).

We MUST ensure Facebook is aware of this page.

Please click on the link below and scroll down the left side of the page where you will see (under where it shows how many people like it) a “Report Page” link. Select that option and choose “Contains hate speech”. There is also another one option - reporting violence and incitement to violence.  FB might be more willing to look at that option.

If you don’t have a Facebook account, please forward this to others.”

As it is two minutes before my bedtime, all I can say is, do the right thing.

Love, Light and most importantly, Peace upon us all.

I’m not the bravest, but I damn sure was not raised to stand idly by.
