I really enjoyed this article, not just because it is thoughtful and well-written, but it gives me great hope that there are many other Jews out there that are not liberal zombies.
I've been meaning to post it for a while but forgot about it.
"One of the reasons for this close working relationship between
evangelical activists and Israeli leaders of every stripe involves the
key difference between Christian Zionists and their American Jewish
counterparts: Christian conservatives feel no compulsion to tell
Israelis how to run their country. Unlike leaders of major Jewish
organizations, the born-again brigades provide the elected leaders of
Israel with virtually unconditional support, even when they may harbor
deep doubts about certain policies."
"...rampaging secularism represents a far greater threat to Jewish identity
than does intensifying Christianity. As Dov Fischer, a California rabbi,
trenchantly observed some three decades ago, we have less to fear from
“Jews for Jesus” than we do from “Jews for Nothing." This means that Jewish leadership made a disastrously bad bet some 50
years ago when it aligned the community with ardent secularists and
militant separationists in pushing for a less distinctively Christian
America, as if moving the nation in that direction would facilitate
greater Jewish pride and affirmation."
Well worth the read.
