A story about boundaries in 11 parts.
As my friend Rachel Goldberg, mother of 23-year-old Hersh Polin-Goldberg who was brutally kidnapped by Hamas on October 7, said at the United Nations.
“When you only get outraged when one side’s babies get killed, then your moral compass is broken, and your humanity is broken.”
As someone who is neither Israeli, Palestinian, nor Jewish, I have felt that my role since Oct. 7 has been, primarily, to listen. After reading and listening to a range of voices, I want you to know how much I appreciate yours. I am with you 100% on this: "If you believe that Hamas is a legitimate, liberation/resistance organization, you are not my friend and I will not hold space on my page for such beliefs." Take care, Jena.
