The Silence of Elie Wiesel

| No TrackBacks

"I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."

That's what you said, Mr. Wiesel.

And now your silence on Gaza is deafening.

Not a word on your website, not an op-ed in the NYTimes, nothing.

Your vow to never speak ill of Israel is wrong, Mr. Wiesel.

Surely you cannot continue this silence as Israel descends into barbarism. Surely you cannot condone this oppression. Surely you cannot lose faith in what is right.

Please speak.
