Mein Kampf;

So proclaimed the most hated man in history.

Sieg Hail!

What victory is this, then? How many of us must die for your pleasure?

Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer!

We are all one people. Why, then, do you kill us?

Sicher ist der Jude auch ein Mann, aber der Floh ist auch ein Tier.

And El Elyon made us all.

We are the human race.

We are God’s people:

the Jews,

the Germans,

the Palestinians!

All of us together.

We all deserve peace, we all deserve choice.

We deserve what you deny us—

We deserve life.

In your language:

Deutschland, erwache!

Germany, awake!

Discover what we’ve known all along.

Shalom aleichem—

Hashem imachem—

Peace be with you,

May God be with us all.
