VOI’s Daniel Seaman and Daniela Traub reject placing collective blame for the slaying of an Arab baby and other atrocities committed by Jews.
They say that assigning collective guilt to Jews for the murder of Jesus has now been replaced by other such collective accusations for the actions of individuals. When a Muslim commits murder, many people are quick to announce that he is a “lone wolf.” But Israel is not given the same courtesy. Israeli society does not endorse or encourage these acts, say Daniel and Daniela. We do not teach our children to hate. We are as collectively responsible for this atrocity as we are for the actions of any thief, pervert or murder in our society. listen now
