The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil,
but because of the people who don't do anything about it

The modest “Rachel’s Tomb”
In the heart of Bethlehem,
Sacred to the three faiths,
Has been turned
Into a fortified position
Forbidden to Muslims.
The “Cave of Machpelah”
Which is also “Ibrahim’s Mosque”
Has become the nest of
Baruch Goldstein and his admirers.
Instead of serving as a
Model of inter-religious tolerance,
Both symbolize now the “heritage”
Of hatred and death.
