As a Christian, I was taught--following the example of Jesus--to come against evil in the opposite spirit; to counter hatred with love, fear with courageous compassion, violence with peacemaking, ignorance with empathy... What I see in this video--coming from an elderly white Jewish man and a young Muslim woman of color--is the embodiment of what Jesus taught and demonstrated. And ironically, it is the antithesis of what I see modeled by so many who profess to be followers of Jesus.
