"That Jew" Video...

There are moments when you won't like what he says, and moments that you will, but if you're really listening...

his story is not only to Jews.  nor is it only to really is to humanity...

We are fallible.
We are not perfect.
We are proud and arrogant and closed-minded sometimes because
we are human.
we want peace,
we want to be able to live
and to continue living
and we want that for others, as well.

We are not interested in making targets of others.
We are people that want to remember where we came from
and be supported
wherever it is that we are going.
We are interested in other cultures
and we do not take issue with their differences
if it means that we all can continue living.

This is not to say that there is not bad in the world;
if you are killing people
for whatever reason,
we are not supporting you.
Because it goes against our humanity
and everything that comes with it:
the desire to live,
to grow,
to marry or not,
to have families or diverse friends,
to travel,
to love,
to interact,
to change
and to exist.
If you rob someone's existence,
you are not respecting humanity.

And humanity is what we have in common
and humanity is how we can save the world from it's troubles
because humanity is nature;
it is us in our most natural state.
It is giving and kind and free and happy and it is LOVE.

If we love one another,
if we love the world and the natural beauty
that come from letting things be
and exist and to grow as they are
and not what we want them to be,
then we are exercising our humanity.

You may not like how we says all of this...
you may not like his reason for making the video in the first place...
but I can imagine there have been many moments
where you were at your wits end,
wondering how things were going to get better
when things were happening that were outside of your realm of understanding or seeming control. You didn't see the logic.
You were searching for the humanity.

This is it.
Understanding that we're all the same
and we are different
and that's ok.
Upholding all of the good in the world
that allows people to live
and to be free
and happy
and healthy.
Humanity is love.
Is it in you?

My name is Eitan Chitayat. And #IMTHATJEWThis has been simmering with me for a while.And I’ve been wondering when would be the right time to let it out.The time is now. Last year, after the Charlie Hebdo massacre went down in France, radical Islamic terrorists entered a kosher supermarket and gunned down innocent Jewish shoppers who were just out to buy some groceries. They were killed because they were Jewish – no other reason. The world remained largely silent. And look at anti-Semitism now. It’s 2015 and it’s everywhere you look. In the streets. In the media. In the classroom. It’s practically en vogue. Is this really what we’ve come to? Lest any Jew forgets – because of all the violence directed at us, the hatred, the incitement to harm and kill, the vile words, the missiles, the rockets, the knives, the rocks, the deafening silence of the world that we all feel right now – we should be proud of our heritage, accomplishments and spirit. Just like anyone else on this planet. And we shouldn’t be shy about it. Rise up, speak up and keep your chins up. We'll get through this because we love life and we're strong and smart and funny and beautiful and talented and resilient and educated and hard-working and positive and so much more. We’re okay. In fact, we’re more than okay. We rock. And here's a little reminder.Love and peace to all.#IMTHATJEW --------------------------------------------- Bob Dylan- Elena Kagan- Richard Dreyfuss- Jack Black- Alan Greenspan- Drake- Ed Koch- Gabriel Macht- Golda Meir- Randy Savage- Moses- Billy Crystal- Lou Charloff- Asaf Goren- Ben Gurion- Mark Spitz- Jeremy Piven- Yael Arad- Michael Bloomberg- Sergey Brin- Larry Page- Howard Stern- Sheryl Sandberg- Shia Labeouf- Mark Zuckerberg- Bar Rafaeli- Rachel Weisz- Peter Sellers- Alicia Silverstone- Billy Joel- Adam Levine- Roman Abramovich- Abba Eban- Manuel Valls- Steven Spielberg- Jesus Christ Superstar- Bernie Madoff- Adam Goldberg- Joan Rivers- Paul Newman- Judge Judy- Menachem Begin- Yitzhak Rabin- Sammy Davis Jr.- Amar’e Stoudemire- Ben Stiller- Jeff Goldblum- Larry King- Sacha Baron Cohen- Arthur Miller- Albert Einstein- Sigmund Freud- Ruth Westheimer- Monica Lewinsky- Francois Englert- Carl Sagan- Ilan Ramon- Paul Rudd- Jonah Hill- Seth Rogan- Andy Samberg- Mel Brooks- Jerry Seinfeld- Bill Maher- Larry David- Scarlet Johansson- Gal Gadot- Natalie Portman- Carrie Fisher- Haim Topol- Joseph Gordon-Levitt- Amy Winehouse- Ed Milliband- Bernie Sanders- Matisyahu- Stephen Fry- Sara Hurwitz- Leonard Cohen- Leonard Nimoy- William Shattner- Daniel Pearl- Pope Francis- Dalai Lama- Sarah Silverman- Madeleine Albright- Mark Knopfler- Yoni Netanyahu- Yitzhak Rabin- Families of Eyal Yifrah, Gil-ad Shaer, Naftali Fraenkel- Gene Simmons- Yuri Foreman- Liev Schreiber- Eli Weisel- Shimon Peres- Coen Brothers - Harvey Weinstein- Beastie Boys- Simon and Garfunkel- Rina Wertheim- Lucian Freud- Ralph Lauren- Nigella Lawson- Adam Sandler- Woody Allen- Harrison Ford- Lenny Kravitz- Madonna - Dustin Hoffman- Benjamin Millepied- Kirk and Michael Douglas- Jon Stewart- Gene Wilder- Pink - Winston Churchill - Franklin Roosevelt- Martin Luther King Jr.- Jim Henson- Bill and Melinda Gates- John Lennon----------------------Special thanks to Dana, Adam, Uri, Hed, Ari, Dina, Shelley, Avi.***The use of these media materials is protected by the Fair Use Clause of the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976, which allows for the rebroadcast of copyrighted materials for the purpose of commentary, criticism and education.***
