What Zionism Was Not Supposed To Be

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2008

There was scarcely time to grieve for those killed in the horrid attack in the Mercaz Harav yeshiva before they were transformed into symbols, and then from symbols into launching pads for all manner of political argument. Among the arguments, a renewed discussion about what Zionism is in the modern day, in the violent and divided Israel. Take your pick: a Zionism that polishes its boots, or a Zionism that spits in the face of the Other and on its own moral tradition. Either way, you lose.
