What if both sides are right?

Reader comment on item: Europe's Jews vs. Israel

Submitted by Jeffrey Sheff, Jan 27, 2019 at 14:18

Are local Jewish communities wrong to fear the ascent of "civilizationist" parties which attract and possibly legitimize the views of local anti-Semites just because these parties support Israel? And is Israel wrong to welcome the support of these parties if their foreign policy is much more supportive of Israel than that of their opponents? At some point all diaspora communities may have to choose between these priorities: the welfare of themselves and their families versus the welfare of Israel: aliyah may become the only way to resolve this.
