Jewish lives matter

“First they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew … Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me” — German pastor Martin Niemoller (1892-1984).

The entire civilized world watched in horror when Islamic State launched its attacks against the people of Paris. Then the human interest stories started to appear in places like The New York Times, with a particular focus on Nohemi Gonzalez, the beautiful 23-year-old California State Long Beach student who had the horrific misfortune to be dining at La Belle Equipe on Rue de Charonne at the time of the attacks.
