Will American Jews soon divorce Israel?
Jan 30, 2016
Here is an interesting article which shows that support for Israel has never been universal among Jews. In fact, it has been getting harder and harder for Zionist leadership to “sell” Israel to Jewish youth.
In a very interesting piece on his web site (Mondoweiss) Philip Weiss has speculated that the day is coming when American Jews will divorce Israel….
According to Weiss an important “sociological trend” is underway.
“American Jews, even mainstream ones indoctrinated to love Israel, are breaking more and more publicly with the Jewish state. The Netanyahu government is proving to be embarrassing to American Jews; they do not want to be associated with rightwing apartheid policies… The divorce that we have long predicted on this site is now on the horizon; and in years to come this separation will yield an even bigger reward: mainstream American Jews will declare themselves anti-Zionist.”
In support of his speculation Weiss quoted Gary Rosenblat. He’s a hard-core supporter of Israel and the editor and publisher of The Jewish Week. In an article for it and as summed up by Weiss he revealed that Jewish leaders are saying that it’s getting impossible to sell Israel to young Jews….
Weiss concluded with this prediction.
“This crisis will not end until American Jews declare Zionism is racism. And one day they will.”
