A pride I wish I didn’t have to have but one that I share

Paul Greenberg writes:

I can’t remember being quite so proud in quite this way of the family [of Jews] as I was this past week, when the news was full of images of Jews being forced out of their homes – this time by other Jews. The self-control of both settlers and soldiers required a kind of courage not even war may demand. It had taken 8,000 Israeli troops to capture Gaza in the Six-Day War, when Gamal Abdel Nasser was going to drive the Jews into the sea. It would take a force of 50,000 – trained, disciplined, and almost all unarmed – to remove the settlers.
