Some times when I see people on the street, they'll follow salutations with 'How are you?' I don't know how to respond to this. I usually get all goggle-eyed and say 'I'm here!' They usually take this as a smart remark, a cutting barb, an anti-social jibe. I don't know what they want me to say. I am there, after all... I'm already interacting like crazy... Sometimes when I walk by an iron fence with spikes on top, I'm always afraid I'm going to trip and impale my head on the spikes... I'm afraid of the subway trains...

Interviews with parents of suicide bombing victims pt 2
INTERVIEWER: Jews do have a choice today. You mentioned that Jews came to Israel because of the holocaust, they didn't have a choice. But, as you know, in everyone's opinion, millions of Jews live in America, and England, and other relatively momentarily safe countries. So the choice to come here was really a conscious decision that rested on more than no choice for you. EZRA KASSLER:,Absolutely. The choice - INTERVIEWER:, [OVERLAP] Explain the - explain the reason - EZRA KASSLER:,It's a commandment, for Jews, (Inaudible) land of Israel. It's a simple thing. It's one of the greatest mitzvahs. INTERVIEWER:,Thank you. [OFF CAMERA COMMENTS] Seth, how has this effected your faith in God? [OFF CAMERA COMMENTS] 12:02:51>>> SETH MANDELL:,My son Koby's death had a profound effect on my faith in God. To my surprise, it deepened and widened that faith. I never really needed to believe in God before my son was killed. It was a personal choice, because there were no consequences. Judaism was a lifestyle that I enjoyed, Shabbat, the family, the commandments, study. And I did it because I liked it. Confronted with the death of my son, I had to look at myself and say, is this something that I've been doing because I mean it, or is this something that I've been doing because I like it? The answer I get, to my surprise, is that I meant it. And the way that I look at Koby's murder remained through the eyes of a person who believed in God. The way that I looked at the world, my place here, remains that of a person who believes in God. He gives into my life, and into my soul tremendous meaning, and every moment of being. I take that as a gift. I take it as a gift from my son, to me, that his death -gives me more life. [BACKGROUND COUGHING] 12:04:45>>>,There was a time when we considered living in Israel to be a choice. Since my son is buried here, it is no longer a choice, we will stay here. There was a time that I could choose whether or not I believed that there was life after death - which Judaism is clear that there is. It's no longer a choice. It's a belief that is part of my every waking moment. There was a time when I thought that I could take it or leave it. [BACKGROUND COUGHING] The consequence. [OFF CAMERA COMMENTS] INTERVIEWER:,My question to you is -many people, when they suffer through tragedy, try to find an explanation. And I understand that ____ faith. What do you say to people when they say to you, didn't you ever ask how a god that you pray to and loved every day of your life, could do this, since god determines what happens in this world, according to people with faith? 12:06:29>>> SETH MANDELL:,When people ask me about my relationship to god, after what I believe to be the truth - that he killed my son, because god, in fact, is behind everything, um, I have to tell them that it ain't easy. That I have an ongoing conversation in which I tell him that I don't like what he did. That certainly Koby didn't deserve it, I don't think I deserved it. And it's not fair. Yet my belief in god, and my feelings toward god do not speak to whether or not god exists. My belief in god is my personal choice. Whether god exists or not has nothing to do with me. My relationship to that entity that we call god is there, like my relationship to my wife, like my relationship to Koby, like my relationship to Daniel. I have to deal with that. I can get mad at it, I can get mad at god, I can laugh at god, it doesn't mean that god isn't there anymore because I'm mad at him. INTERVIEWER:,Do you feel -[OFF CAMERA COMMENTS RE: CHILD CRYING IN BACKGROUND] Has this effected, in any direct way, your belief in a possible negotiated peace? 12:08:55>>> SETH MANDELL:,Yeah, it certainly has effected my belief in a negotiated peace. I believe that Koby was killed because of hate. I believe that the Palestinian Authority directly instilled hatred of Jews in their people for political purposes, whatever those might have been. You can't make peace with people who hate you. You can't make peace with people who don't know how to make peace. So I'm very pessimistic about the short-term opportunities, to really create a dialogue that's meaningful, with the majority of the Palestinian society. On a personal level, I have no problem in being with Palestinians, talking to Palestinians, dialoguing with Palestinians. On an intellectual level, unfortunately, right now, I don't think it's possible to make any headway in personal relationships with them, because they are filled with hatred toward Jews. INTERVIEWER:,What do you think you would do, if you knowingly came face to face with Koby's killer (or killers)? 12:10:10>>>, SETH MANDELL:,The Talmud says, that those people who are righteous are alive, even when they're dead. Those people who are - those people who are evil, are dead even when they're alive. The people who killed my son are evil. There's no question about that. The people who my son [SIC] - the people who killed my son are not human enough for me to consider them as part of who I am. I'd like to think that I would turn around and walk away. If I were in a position to do something to them, whatever I did would not be as part of emotion. To me, those people who killed my son are no better or worse, no more responsible than the rocks they used to kill my son with. If I could disappear them I would. INTERVIEWER:,You love Tekoa, don't you? SETH MANDELL:,I love Tekoa, as a place to live. It's a wonderful community, it's spectacular scenery, it's a place like no other in the world. INTERVIEWER:,And if, as part of a, a vital piece that you believe would bring peace, if you had to move, would you do it? 12:11;36>>>SETH MANDELL:,If I thought that my leaving Tekoa would bring peace, I would get out of there in a heartbeat. The raison d'etre the people who live in Israel, that Jews live in Israel, is not directed at one part of Israel or the other. There's no larger divine imperative to live in Tekoa, or Tel Aviv. They are both part of Israel. That's how I make my decision, in terms of the spiritual aspect. So, if it means peace, if it means saving lives, if it was a real peace then I would certainly leave Tekoa. I think it's ironic, that the only place that I can't live, as a Jew, is a place where Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, walked with their goats. But nonetheless, if that's the cost of peace, it would not be a problem for me to leave. INTERVIEWER:,Sherri, do you feel the same way? 12:12:43>>>SHERRI MANDELL:,I would leave if I really thought that there was going to be peace, and I could live in another place in safety, and I could still be in Israel. But, I have this funny idea about democracy. That even if Yasser Arafat was the ruler, where I live, if he could guarantee me safety, then I would stay there. But it's not guaranteeing me any safety. In fact he's telling his people to go out and be martyrs. INTERVIEWER:,Well, I'm going to ask you to be foolish for a moment. They say that when the temple is destroyed, if the prophecy was taken away and given over to evil doers, that if you could project a hundred years into the future -you know, those that are only responsible - ____ to what you're saying now. But based on everything, what do you think is going to happen in this crazy part of the world? SHERRI MANDELL:,I don't know what's gonna happen tomorrow. How do I know? We're gonna have a war with Iraq. We're preparing gas masks. I don't know if we're gonna be attacked or not. I don't know if Bush is going to attack Iraq. I don't know if Iraq is going to attack us. I have a hard enough time processing for the next week. That's about as far as I go. INTERVIEWER:,But do you believe that Jews will be here a hundred years ago? Do you think so? SHERRI MANDELL:,I don't look that far away. I'm, I'm - I have to survive today. I don't have an opinion on a hundred years from now. INTERVIEWER:,Daniel? You were, you were very close with your brother. How many years separated you from your brother, in age? 12:14:34>>> DANIEL MANDELL:,Two. I was two years younger than my older brother. INTERVIEWER:,And then you stopped crying, you didn't want to cry anymore. You were afraid to go back. But after a while you had to come back and you had to come to terms with the fact that your brother was gone. And how have you dealt with that, in the last two years? How has your - has your behavior changed from what it was before, when he was alive? How do you feel about all these things now, after some time has passed? DANIEL MANDELL:,Well, first of all, you change into a completely different person. You, you act different toward other people, you think differently about other stuff, you look at stuff from other ways. You completely change into a completely different, different person. It's even the way that you talk tends to be different. Everything. INTERVIEWER:,Can you see yourself having an Arab friend? 12:15:53>>> DANIEL MANDELL:,At this moment, I can't see myself having an Arab friend. And even if there would be such a thing, at this moment, I wouldn't be able to trust him. And I wouldn't be talking to him. Because who knows, maybe one day when we'll be meet - we'll be meeting, so maybe somebody from some place will come tell him, take a gun with you and shoot him - or stab him. And, so I can't trust somebody that I know that there's a chance that he will do that to me. [OFF CAMERA COMMENTS] ,My vision is that the Messiah will come and there won't be anymore problems. The Arabs will just disappear and life will be perfect. There won't be anybody to fight over this land with. And my children - my grandchildren will live wherever they want in Israel, for however - wherever - they won't have a problem to move anywhere. And nobody will come. And they won't have to drive in bulletproof busses to school everyday. Just because of that, that the Palestinians want to kill us. That's pretty much it. INTERVIEWER:,That is a hopeful, and certainly optimistic approach. Are you still optimistic? Seth? 12:17:55>>> SETH MANDELL:,First of all, if I were to envision Israel a hundred years from now, I know one thing, which is that there will still be Jews here. There have been Jews here for the past three or four thousand years, and there will be Jews here for the next three or four thousand years. So that, I have no doubt. What the political situation will be, I don't believe that the Creator of the universe brought the Jews back, after two thousand years of exile, only to have us fall off the map as a political entity again. So I think there will be a Jewish state. There may or may not be a Palestinian State somewhere next to it. But we'll be there, and we as a family are here because the place that you can be, part of the cutting edge of that Jewish history, is right here in Israel. INTERVIEWER:,So no regrets. SETH MANDELL:,Well I regret - if you wanna - if we talk about regrets, I certainly regret that my son was killed. I certainly regret that this is a time that, that happened. Jews have been getting killed because they were Jews for thousands of years. I never thought that I would be part of that history. I never thought my son would be part of that history. Yeah, I regret it. I regret some of my choices. I might not do them again. Once faced with the current reality, I have to live my life from here onward. From here onward says that I can't run, I can't hide. I live here in Israel as a Jew. INTERVIEWER:,Sherri, you've lost a child in the most horrible way imaginable. How do you feel when, on the news, you see that a Palestinian baby was shot by accident, in an action against terrorists, conducted by the Israeli forces. How do you feel about that death? How do you feel about the parents? And please repeat the questions so that we know the context. 12:20:17>>> SHERRI MANDELL:,When I hear that a Palestinian child has been killed, I feel horrible. I feel - my heart goes out to the parents. And I, I don't know exactly what they're feeling, but I'm sorry for them, I'm sorry for what's happened. But, my son was purposely killed. Arabs - the Palestinians are coming in on Shabbat, to where people are sitting and having a Sabath meal, and they're coming in intentionally and killing children. They're going into children's bedrooms and kill them in cold blood, in their beds. Israelis are not doing that. The Israeli Army, regrettably, sometimes kills children and people by accident, but they're going after terrorists. They're not going after babies in their beds. And there's a big difference. [OFF CAMERA COMMENTS] INTERVIEWER:, What do you see? 12:21:26>>> EZRA KASSLER:,What do I see? I see, first of all, that college students who are going to see this movie are intelligent enough to understand the truth. And the truth is that the western countries, and United States of America, are dependent on Arab oil. And because we're dependent on Arab oil, they have to give in to Arab states. Arab states aren't democratic, they're all dictatorships. Israel has to give in to America, because they're getting money from America. But I don't see - I see - I don't know what will be. ,I hope that we won't create another Arab State, they call it a Palestinian State, another Arab-Palestinian State on the western side of Israel. And I believe that if we continue to hush up the truth and say there is no equality, no symmetric situation between twenty-two Arab nations, all dictatorships pointing a finger at Israel, that Israel captured land in a war of descent and of defense in 1967, they asked King Hussein to stay out of that war. And even on a humane level, we have a right, as much as anyone - if I'm the biggest leftist, to live in security. NO one has the right to come into my house and, and kill me. And do things like - if we did, just a little bit of how they behave to us, there wouldn't be any Arabs in this land, they'd all be dead. Now, I'm not professing that. ,What I'm saying is, we have to tell the truth. And the truth is, there should never be another Palestinian State. Which the intelligence reports say, it's the salami plan of cutting Israel, the Arab countries say that, to destroy Israel. It is the good people, and the left should be on our side in saying we should fight for - we should fight for justice - and the justice is, when a Hitler comes up, and the terrorists, and the people who support the terrorists, which is the vast majority of Palestinians support it. And they should be, either thrown out of here by force, or the ones that, that are attackers be destroyed, they should be annihilated. That is the right thing to do. We just got mixed up between right or wrong. ,And you know, something? The world, and maybe some Arabs would understand - they would really understand and have - and then maybe there could be real peace. But by, by - because we're afraid of America, and the media not coming out and telling the truth, I think that we're only harming ourself [SIC], we're also harming - I was - I lived in Israel, in the territories when, when they just started throwing rocks. We - why, why, why would I drive and get a rock thrown at me? What? Because I was there? So that means maybe I should take a - and throw rocks throw a window of some car and kill a little kid in that car. That was unacceptable. But I guess politics, and Jewish, I don't know what to say, impetism, was - didn't do the right thing. ,I believe that Israel's survival is at a test right now. So imminent survival of the country is at a test right now. And it's not taken for granted. We can be annihilated here. We've been raped, murdered in the most brutal way possible. I believe there's a possibility to that. And just to finish, god willing, we'll recognize that we have to be strong and lead the world in a war against terrorism. And god willing, the Messiah will come. How will he come? When everyone gangs up on little Israel, and Hashem like the splitting of the Red Sea will show its power. , INTERVIEWER:,Do you believe that there is a silent majority of Palestinians who want to have, as I say, two falafels in every pot, and a camel in every garage? (Inaudible) Do they want to have vacation homes, that they want to have big screen TV's and just have a quiet life and go on. EZRA KASSLER:,I have to answer that question. I have to answer that question. SHERRI MANDELL:,(Annoyed) It's my turn, honey. (OVERLAPPING VOICES) [OFF CAMERA COMMENTS] 12:26:19>>>, I don't think this is an argument about economics. I don't think if we give the Palestinians, McDonald's, and shopping malls, that we can solve the problem. This is, this is a problem of a leadership that is bankrupt. A totalitarian leadership, a dictatorship that has no values, other than hating Jews. So, they don't build up their people in any way, they don't build their communities. So, we don't know what regular Palestinians are thinking. Because there's - we don't hear their voices. Their voices are silenced. INTERVIEWER:,But my question is, you know, you live across the road from Palestinians, don't you think that they want the same thing for their kids that you want for yours? To grow up in a ___, and children, and grandchildren, and educated? On the Palestinian side, they're influenced by Israel, the western world and so forth. They have more western values than perhaps Syria, and (Inaudible). [OFF CAMERA COMMENTS] DANIEL MANDELL:,It's not possible that the Arabs - the Palestinians want their children to grow up and give birth to other children, and to have grandchildren, because they send them out to blow themselves up to kill the Jews. So there's no chance of that - that they want them to actually grow up and have grandchildren. SHERRI MANDELL:,I don't think that - EZRA KASSLER:,I wanna, I wanna answer that question, also. DANIEL MANDELL:,They're - Arabs, the normal Arabs might, but Palestinians, at this moment, I don't see and I don't hear. SHERRI MANDELL:,I don't - 12:28:00>>>, DANIEL MANDELL:,[OVERLAP] I'd like, I'd like to hear them, but I don't. They're - I've heard tons of parents come to the school and say, why don't we have the Internet site just so the Jewish kids and the Arab kids will be able to hear, and speak together. But I don't hear any of the Arab parents come and say, why don't we do it too? [OFF CAMERA COMMENTS] EZRA KASSLER:,The answer to the question is, of course, they would like, after all, luxury, and feel well and comfortable. But, if they won a battle they will destroy and murder just like the Nazis. Weren't they the highlights of the human being - the human race? The Germans. They were orderly, and they were, and they were the top of education and technology. But they still murdered all the Jews. So, yes, they would like to be nice. The only reason why they didn't annihilate the Jews, in the State of Israel, is because we're strong. And we must be strong, otherwise we'd be annihilated. [OFF CAMERA COMMENTS] 12:29:14>>>, SHERRI MANDELL:,I think we have to differentiate and distinguish. When my son was killed, I didn't say - I took no pleasure in his death. I didn't glamorize his death. I don't honor his death by terrorism. I am sorry for his death. The Palestinian mothers are being taught to glorify those deaths, to romanticize those deaths, and to say, I want to send my other children to be killed. That is a gap in values and in morals, that cannot be bridged. That has to be condemned. That has to be condemned by the world at every turn. Every mother in the world should be saying, right now, Palestinians have to be told they can't send their children to be killed. We will not accept that. Instead, the world allows it. The world says, let's try to make peace with these people. INTERVIEWER:,Don't you think there are lots of Palestinians who, who, when they wake up in the morning, tell their children, listen, I love you, I don't want you to be a martyr. My neighbor may, but I don't? Otherwise, wouldn't we have hundreds of thousands of martyrs? They've got lots of children. SHERRI MANDELL:, We do. EZRA KASSLER:,They're trying. They're in the thousands. INTERVIEWER:,So you're saying there are none that disagree with that? You've never heard of that? SHERRI MANDELL:, I'm, I'm - there are people, there are lots of people who don't want to send their children to be martyrs. But what is the message in the society? What's the message in the culture? The cultural message that is not being disputed, is saying, we want to be martyrs for Jerusalem. Yasser Arafat says, I want millions of martyrs for Jerusalem. They're saying it outright. They're, they're, they're saying it as loud as can be. We don't want to hear it. WE want to pretend they're not saying it. They are saying, we want to die, and we want to send our children to be killed. [OFF CAMERA COMMENTS] 12:31:15>>> SETH MANDELL:,I believe that, ten years ago, at the beginning of the Oslo Process, you could have found a majority of Palestinians who want what other middle class bourgeois societies wanted. I believe that the Palestinian Authority has radicalized their society, to the extent that, according to the polls, 80% of the - polled in the society, agreed that suicide bombing is a valid way of, of protest. I don't know - I believe you need time, education, and democracy, to bring the Palestinian people back to where they are, first of all human beings, and second of all, Palestinians. First of all, they're humanitarians, and second of all, politicians. I think it will take time. I think that maybe the answer, ultimately, to the question, of what is going to happen, what is going to happen, will be a democratization of the Palestinian society, and humanitarians, and that comes out of a Palestinian society. And they will, themselves, decide that we can live together. I think it's a long, long way away. [OFF CAMERA COMMENTS]
