This week it occurs that Jews in Israel and all over the world are celebrating the pesach, the question that always cross by my mind during the Jews celebrating festivals is that "Is it necessary for a Jew to celebrate his festival with delight, that the life of thousands of Palestinians would be affected by more closures and "security procurements"?
During the Jews festival times, if a Palestinian intends to move out of his city or village for some reason, then he should count in his mind the waste of time he would have while waiting on one of the many checkpoints that are waiting for him all over the road, and not to forget to hold his ID in his hand because it might be under request from one of the Israeli soldiers on these checkpoints to check over him, for the purpose of taking care of the security of celebrating Jews in the settlements around, and in Israel. (That if he didn’t find that the road is closed for that day and entry is not allowed).
I am a Palestinian and my purpose in life is not ruining Jews celebrations, whether the pesach or any other celebration, what the government of Israel must recognize is that it must stop the wasting of our time, and stop the wasting of money by putting so many checkpoints and taking so many “security procurements” that are not that necessary. Terror and violence is not my daily purpose that I wake up for, and so are many Palestinians living on this land.
And YEAH, to all Jews where ever they may be HAPPY PESACH.
