Married and Navigating Jewish Life

Blogging about marriage and relationships

Imagine you saw a Jew being attacked and didn’t do anything? Well a Muslim saw it and he did do something!

with one comment

The story can be read here CNN: Jews saved my Muslim after being attacked by replying a Happy Christmas greeting with a Happy Chanukah one

The thing that shocked me about the incident (and no, it isn’t the Muslim because I know plenty of decent ones) is the fact that the Jew who was assaulted stated the following ‘A muslim helped us when our own people wouldn’t.’

Now that’s a crime in of itself that this Jew said that, that he was being attacked for saying Happy Chanukah and no other Jew helped them.

Doesn’t anyone remember the purpose of Chanukah or are people going to remember that since it was only a fraction of the Jews who really rose up against the Greeks that therefore they aren’t obligated to count themselves in that minority.

I’m proud that the person replied Happy Chanukah and that a Muslim saved them – proud of it since it’s in the papers and shows that Muslims can be decent and how some Christians can be ignorant savages.

  1. I’m mostly shocked that saying “Happy Chanukah” should get such a response. Jews generally aren’t fighters. We’re raised to go like sheep to the slaughter. So I’m not surprised at all that Jews wouldn’t rush to the fray.
