No Unanimity Among Jews

Israel has been challenged by leaders among Israel's Arab citizens and by Israel's High Court. They claim that Israeli Arabs do not enjoy the same rights as Jewish Israelis.

To put the issue as simply as possible: Is Israel a democracy or a Jewish state?

Four letters to the Editor in today's NYTimes, all signed by writers with Jewish-sounding names are split down the middle. Two choose democracy and two choose a Jewish state.

Jew-haters who accuse (all) Jews of showing no reasonableness in defending Israel take note. There is no unanimity among Jews on this issue. None.

Probable reasons for this antagonism will be discussed in a later post on this blog.
