Every Jew has a say in Israel

Reader comment on item: May an American Comment on Israel?

Submitted by yuval Brandstetter MD (Israel), Jul 29, 2008 at 01:00

The only justification for the existence of Israel is for all Jews to have a stake in it. And they do. The State of Israel was restored by Jews for Jews and for the express purpose of being the National Home of the Jewish People. Not the Israelis, the Jews.

Yoram Schweitzer represents the uppity Israeli Jew who denies his own Jewish heritage in exchange for a non-existent Israeli identity. if there is an Israeli identity, then the Palestinian identity is equally valid, and the Palestinian claim to Palestine is equally valid. Since the Israeli identity is nothing more than an apparatus for enabling the jewish State to function, and since the Palestinian identity is nothing more than a counter-measure invented by the Arabs to deny Jews their homeland, it follows that Jews, all jews, are the sole rightful owners of the Land of Israel, Certainly their opinions must be heard, considered and respected. And Zionist Jews even more so.

So keep on thinking and making comments, its an uphill battle to be a true Zionist, especially when post-zionists such as Yoram seem to hold positions of power.
