The Israeli/Jewish Question
© Rabbi Menachem Creditor
The Israeli/Jewish question is not: Where are the Palestinian protesters against Palestinian terrorists? We will protect our people against terrorism with whatever force we are forced to marshal.
The Israeli/Jewish question is: How will we acknowledge and reject the worst within us? I believe statements that place Jewish fundamentalists outside our healthy body, as we envision it, are good first steps.
Bereaved Palestinian and Israeli families comforting each other is the beginning of the excruciating healing that must last and grow. May we have no need for this sad greatness ever again.
