The following article’s subtitle says to modern Jews, “It was not baseless hatred that led to the destruction of the Temple in antiquity. It was the arrogance of the military and the absence of political judiciousness – precisely the same dangers we now face.” Read this lament by a modern Jewish author who distinguishes between God’s original intent for Israel and Israel’s misappropriation over millennia.

Haaretz is a newspaper published in Israel that I subscribe to online. Haaretz opinion pieces and reporting includes articles critical of Israel’s treatment of Palestinians.

Levy states that Zionism in its present form means Israel as a Jewish state with special benefits to Jews. This does not comport with the democracy concept of equality of voting.For the article, see here.
