Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
I live in a Jewish community, so I know a lot of scared people. The acts of Hamas are awful, but not surprising. The response by so many in the US is nothing short of earth-shaking. “Kill the Jews” is the undertone for the huge street protests. The vaunted “safe spaces” that Woke created on college campuses are now exposed as nothing more than cover for institutionally-supported violence against Jewish kids. I have a kid at Rutgers – this is how Universities purge themselves of Jewish students.
If one reads the media, it seems the whole world is turning against us. If the Hamas atrocities can be openly disbelieved and ignored, then it means any attack against my person or my loved ones would garner the same response from those same people.
But I am fortified by this community. When others tell me how discouraged they are, I tell them that America has a lot of good people, people who know right from wrong and who are willing to stand up for those beliefs. I know this to be true because of all the good people here, on Ricochet.
I, a Jew who loves America, am deeply grateful. Thank You.
