Takes The Hour

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2006

Set aside the fact that the step of accepting Israel as a democratic Jewish state is, for now well beyond Palestinian capacity. Ask instead what do the Jews and Israelis mean when they use the term? Israel's Secular, Reform and Conservative Jews do not enjoy the religious freedom of their Orthodox counterparts, and while formally, all Israelis are equal, but the truth is, Israel's Jews are more equal than Israel's others. The true fight for Israel ought not to be this nationalistic, closed-minded view, but the daily struggle to figure out how to defend its interests and to pursue its values at the same time.
