What is find odd is the way the new atheists, including Jewish new atheists especially denounce the evils of religion, but exempt the case of modern Israel, where the abuses of a religion are gruesomely in evidence. Instead with Sam Harris we actually have some kind of jewish chauvinist.
If ever there as an example of ‘religion’ turning into a horror show it is modern Israel. And this situation is so grotesque secularization has only made it worse.
The case of Israel shows the way that covenental judaism suffers from a gruesome logic that contradicts the basic requirement of open inclusion. Any other stance leads to such hell for everyone that the result is social chaos.
Part of the problem is the bogus claims by jews for the land of Israel based on biblical right. Those myths have produced a nearly hopeless situation that is almost beyond resolution.
