Recently my 2-year old daughter was sitting on my lap while we surfed the Internet and she saw a familiar mouse on the monitor. But it wasn’t Disney’s friendly Mickey Mouse; it was Hamas’ Farfur telling children barely older than my daughter to aspire to go out and murder people just like her (5/15, Opinion, Michael Goodwin column, “There can be no peace with merchants of hate”).
The Hamas government looks at its children and sees future bombs and mass-murderers (aka “martyrs”). My government looks at my daughter and sees a future productive member of society.
As Golda Meir said, peace will come when they love their children more than they hate us.
I am grateful that my daughter lives in a culture that loves its children.
