Reader comment on item: Accepting Israel as the Jewish State[: Public Opinion in Four Arab Countries]
in response to reader comment: Try a Different Perspective About the Jewish State of Israel

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), May 24, 2010 at 23:38

Hi,

I would like to again tell you that when you try to define "Jewishness" in terms of biblical things particularly old testament things , try to be more detailed and specific about what do you mean by Jewishness of Israel and how it should be condsidered by all Jews ?

You have to accept one thing that the definition of Jewishness is not a settled matter , even 60 years after Israel came into being. The Russian Jews are increasingly having a hard time against the ultra-orthodox , haredi Jews. And you should also remember that day by day the haredis are getting restless and angrier against the current Zionist enterprise.

So if the haredis and Zionists are not united about the Jewishness of Israel then kindly tell me how a non-Jew like you want to describe about the Jewishness about Israel ?

I request you again to think beyond the old testament when it comes to the Jewishness of Israel. And another point do not try to define Jewishness since like others you are also considered a Goyim i.e. inferior by those ruling Israel , currently.

Submitting....
