Israel's S.O.S.

Yes, I agree with this.

Really? "Settlements, clearly, are the keys to all this." Really?

In 1948, why were the Arab armies out to destroy Israel?

In 1964, why was the PLO founded?

In 2005, after uprooting every Jewish community in Gaza, why have Gazan rocket attacks against Israeli civilians continued?

And I love that it's no longer enough for a Jew to denounce "ultra-orthodox fanatics," but he must also smear "modern orthodox messianics."

This gets to the hidden subtext of this strained and confused article - non-religious Zionism is in danger. It lacks the intellectual and emotional foundation to withstand irrational international criticism, so the author needs to make himself look good in front of his American and European friends, saying essentially "I'm a good Jew, those are the bad Jews, they're the problem."
