Israel Is Bad for The Jews, Part 2

By Danny Schechter

New York, New York: I would have become a rich man in the Fiddler in The Roof sense if each of the insults, putdowns and venomous asides about my recent article, "Israel Is Bad For The Jews," had a monetary value.

For so many years, we used to joke, "Five Jews, Ten Opinions," as a comment about the perennial, ongoing and never ending arguments and debates that made our culture so rich with its many religious tendencies---Reform, Conservative and Orthodox, and their many spinoffs competing over the best way to serve God.

Politically, we had more organizations and positions than any one Jew has fingers, as conservatives battled liberals, Zionists quarreled with anti-Zionists, and the many factions of the left and the right battled each other.

This rich diversity of perspective is what spawned so many passionate writers, and engaged intellectuals to pick over the carcass of our history, and its many interpretations of what Judaism is and what are the right values and beliefs to guide us.

Even in our Passover Seders, in the modern form and ancient traditions, we sang of our differences, with subtlety and irony. There were always moral choices. Never one answer!
