Israel will persist, but only as might, not as right, and that is essentially the end of Israel as an idea. We pointed out last summer that Gaza’s destruction was the end of the ‘jewish idea’. And the idea of a jewish state has been put to a test and the result shows the inherent unworkability of the idea. There could be one way out: abandon the idea of Israel as a jewish state and work toward a federated state of Israel, Lebanon, Palestine, Gaza, and Jordan.
It is hard to believe now, but the creation of an exclusive jewish state should have rung alarm bells among jews themselves. In fact, it did, with Einstein no less. Succumbing to the temptation of this caper has essentially thrown the whole experiment of jewish culture into oblivion. We need to move on at this point, and we need to rescue American democracy from its destruction by Israel a failed experiment run by arrogant thugs without a clue.
