It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Speaking of Resurrection...

How auspicious that on a weekend when, coincidentally, Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, and Jews read of the resurrection of the dry bones, the Falacstinians would have a miraculous resurrection of their own.

Apparently the Hamas Health Ministry reported that Muhammad Zen Ismail Al-Farmawi was killed by the IDF in an incident in Rafah, in Azza. Miraculously it was reported by the Arab Ma'an news agency that he was in fact detained by the Egyptians.
“[i]t turns out Al-Farmawi was among 17 Palestinians detained by Egyptian forces shortly after [they] infiltrated the Egyptian side of Rafah via one of Gaza's numerous underground smuggling tunnels. The detainees, among them 12 minors, were returned to security forces at the border on Friday. They had been questioned about tunnel locations, leading to at least three closures, Egyptian security sources said.”
Though it's probably pretty hard for a 15 year old to top a miracle like resurrection, Hamas will no doubt attempt to get him to turn water into rockets, though what they really wish is that Al-Farmawi was still dead. After all, Noam Chomsky doesn't care if a boy is reunited with his parents.
