“We Need Allies”

Yesterday I sat in on a talk about anti-Semitism in Europe. I am on the board of the organization that the speaker, X—, was from. During the question-and-answer period someone asked, “What can we do? What can be done?” X— (the executive director of the organization) seemed a bit taken aback because he had been talking about what the organization does. So I held up my hand and said, “What we all need to do is recognize that we need allies. We cannot do this alone. And the mission of X—’s organization is just that. They are doing a lot toward that end.” Everyone (much to my surprise) applauded loudly! The tone changed.
