Anonymous , I think the fences erected cross the land has gained very much . Before the erected fences across the land we watched on a Daily basis innocent Jewish bloodshed that was crying to heaven. As to your picture in comparison to the fences in the death Camps has little merrit. Reply

What has Yacob gained? From the picture I was reminded of the struggle of the Arabs behind the security fences we have erected across the land... What have we gained? Yacob could not take blessings away from his brother. We were exiled from the land, not Esau nor Ishmael, and we will continue to fight and be exiled until we recognize our brothers and learn to share these infinite blessings with them and all Avraham's children.

A Rabbi, a Holocaust Survivor, and a Lonely Struggle in the Dark Night.... This (Your) reply with the reference to Jacob's wrestling and the final outcome would seem to be a very fitting reply to the respected Survivor's comments at that very moment in his life...
Thank you for sharing. Reply
