Eyes Wide Open: The Settlements from a (Different) Jewish Perspective

By Ishay Rosen-Zvi

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), May 2004

The author has found that settlements are seen by many American Jews as the front line in the war against terror, whereas in reality they are the tip of the sword of a terrible and insufferable apartheid. The settlements remain in place to establish us as the sole rulers of the land and to prevent any future accord. The occupation has become so natural that it has blinded us, covering our eyes from seeing the injustices and suffering that we have been causing daily for over a generation. He concludes that it is also insufferable for us Jews who aspire to establish a state based on principles of justice, not tyranny.
