The news out of Jerusalem just gets worse, already on a boil after the abduction-murder of the 4 boys last summer. Now rightwing Jewish zealots supported by parliamentarians from the governing coalition seek to change the status quo on the Temple Mount. If anything happens to the mosques, if another intifada or worse starts over this, the war will be a religious one between Jews and Muslims. None of us will be safe –not in Israel, not in New York, London, or Paris, not us and not our children. Contemporary Jewish life is globalized and interconnected, whether you are Zionist or anti-Zionist doesn’t matter one way or the other. Jewish life in the Diaspora and Israel are now so thoroughly enmeshed that there’s no real way to disentangle. The religious far-right in Israel endangers all of us together. Before it’s too late, American Jews must speak out to end the occupation and make peace, to respect human dignity and accommodate Palestinian rights as part of a political solution based on the principle of mutual recognition.
