Better be careful here, Josh. When walking into a minefield things can go KA-BOOM in the night. And in the day. And I enter this particular field because?
So, here’s my question, one that I’ve been thinking about for the past half-century. “To be a Jew, must one be a Zionist?” The key word here is “must” as in “I must breathe to live.” And what is meant by Zionist? Until someone suggests a better response, let this suffice: A Zionist believes, as a minimum, that there is something called “the Jewish people” which combines a unique combination of genetic and historic heritages and has a right to create a state of its own in (here’s the tricky part) the Promised Land/Palestine/ Israel.

On May 31, the world’s attention was on the catastrophic oil spill off the Gulf Coast and President Barack Obama’s enfeebled response, a disappointment to his advocates (I include myself), but to his foes, confirmation of his ineptitude.
But while the oil continued to spew from beneath the sea, on the surface Israel’s navy attempted to commandeer a flotilla bent on breaking its blockade of Gaza, and the world’s attention shifted dramatically.

Joshua SteinThere are those Jews, of which I am not one, who see in President Obama a crypto-Muslim or at least a crypto-enemy of Israel driving it to make suicidal concessions, and who feel those Jews who support him are dupes (or maybe dopes). There are other Jews, of which I am not one, who are urging the president to force Israel, for its own good, to conciliate its policies towards the Palestinians so that a twostate solution can happen in our time.
