Minister of Foreign Affairs

By Daniel Gordis

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), May 2008

Gordis, writing as if he were the Israeli minister of foreign affairs, argues that the foreign ministry has a mandate to speak clearly, both in the international community and to Jews in Israel, about what Israel is about. The challenge is to shift the spotlight, focusing the world's discussion on why Jews need a state in the first place, and through this lens understand the agonizing decisions Israel makes.
