I know I have not been severely active in here for a long time but in my thoughts and spirit I am always here .
As sone of you know I am of Jewish heritage , roots go deep and I feel very connected to Israel etc. This Christmas I received a very special gift from a christian friend . A neckless with the star of David and I wear it always as a token of my heriatge and also gratitude to the woman who gave me this from her heart. The reactions I get on the other hand is not that pleasing mind you. At one time I spend time with my so called friendly negbours , they invited me for coffee and convo.
The man of the house turned to me with fear in his eyes and asked me if I was Jewish and why I had my neckless. I told him that it was a gift from a friend and nothing more because I knew from instinct where the convo was heading .
After this meeting we have not talked nor visited eachother . His children are mean to my little daughter , one time they threw a huge rock at her chest and laughed at her as she was screaming and crying . They tell her she is not wanted and that she is ugly and disgusting.
I have tried to confront the parents and the children about this but they always blame it on my daughter. She is of course upset about this and reacts with anger and sadness . I feel strongly that this is antisemitism related as I see no justice for their action .
I wonder how to stop this and how to make people understand that we all are alike and worhty a life in harmony and happiness.
To be honest I never thought that in sweden where I come from in these time and age could be that unknowing and racists.
We learn about religion and cultures in school and we are thougth to respect eachother no matter what but still this fear is among us . I am extremely upset over this and sad
