It's about time

 

Ricarda Huch

*18 July 1864 +17 November 1947


She braved the paradox enthusiasm for the First World War and she opposed the Nazi regime resigning her membership at Prussian Academy of the Arts in protest at their expulsion of various writers, 1933.



I think now is the appropriate time to remember people like her...
as well as the events or 'occurrences' they stood up against. 

If smears like: 'Jews your end is near' are sprayed,

If Jewish sites, businesses and synagogues are attacked it might be long-overdue even.

I do not agree with a lot of things that Israel does to Palestine 
(that doesn't make me Anti-Israel)

I also definitely show no expression of sympathy whatsoever for Hamas.

It's sad enough that this conflict demands so many innocent victims and suffering on both sides.

But it makes it even worse if it additionally gives false justification for the anti-Semitic events that occur in European countries these days. 

I thought the results of the European Election had been enough of a warning signal, and I know that's another matter altogether, but in a way it's not. 
It just adds to it.

I fear I might have been wrong
