Current Affairs

I’m still new enough to Judaism that today’s rampant antisemitism leaves me slack-jawed and wordless. So I find places where others (Solomonia this time) say what I mean better than I am able to at the moment.

The cold-shoulder approach that the Israel-rejectionists have exercised since Israel’s founding, and particularly since 1967, has been the chief and most visible (and legitimate) justification for every Israeli “unilateral” action since. You can’t negotiate anything with people who won’t even talk. Instead, you do what you have to do to go on living, including taking unilateral police action and building real walls to represent the figurative ones other people have already erected.
