If you value life, you will live and if you value death, you will die.In that sentence is the crux of the Middle East equation and the very reason why there will never be peace. In that sentence, is why there are so many dead Palestinians, including civilians. If you value death, you will die.
We value life and so we put our innovative genius into developing the Iron Dome. We value life and so we build bomb shelters.
We value life and so we mourn, as a nation, for each and every death. Every one...I can tell you many of their names, which one was married only 10 months, which one's wife gave birth to a baby girl days after he was killed. I can tell you about the soldier who was engaged to be married; the ones who played guitar and sang.
Each was a life, a whole world and we do not celebrate their deaths. We go to funerals, as I plan to go to one today. And there, we sing sad songs of compassion, of faith knowing that at their funerals, they scream out for revenge, shoot guns in the air, and promise in allah's name, more will die.
The truest sentence in the world at this moment is...
If you value life, you will live and if you value death, you will die.
