Courage is… speaking the truth. Nizar Amer, a Druze-Israeli diplomat, defended his country Israel in response to Syria at the UN. Spoken with dignity and clarity, he expressed the truth: “Today we heard numerous accusations against my country, Israel. ..While you continue to kill, we continue to heal the wounds. The truth cannot be hidden any longer.” As the Lubavitcher Rebbe states with crystal clarity “G-d gave the Land of Israel to the Children of Israel as an eternal inheritance…” as it says so in the Torah. The Courage to speak the truth, shatters the lies.
