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.

Joshua SteinJoshua 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.
