Memories of the Holocaust

Opinion: Editorial: Israel's dark turn (captimes.com):

"After seeing a photograph of an elderly Palestinian woman sitting atop the rubble of a home destroyed by the Israeli military, Israeli Justice Minister Yosef Lapid said he was reminded of his grandmother's suffering during the Holocaust. "

Recently I wrote elsewhere:
“Friedrich Nietzsche wrote, "Battle not with monsters lest ye become a monster and if you gaze into the abyss the abyss gazes into you.
I suppose if we gaze into the abyss we might see Nietzsche gazing back. Man separate from God does not need to fear becoming a monster. He already is one. Without God man has no way to measure his own depravity. Good is only good in relation to God.”

Looking at Israel I think increasing the violence will only lead to increased sorrow. The only lasting solution is for them to turn to God.
