(Israel) Has Changed Its Face (Judaism)


The best part in this article here about Merav Michaeli is when, with characteristic bluntness, she tells leftists to stop whining about Mizrachim in Sederot voting Likud. They at least have an effective political home. In this political ad, the Labor Party speaks to the point. “I will not be silent for my country has changed its face.” And this piece here by Bradley Burston speaks to something parallel, i.e.  the changing face of Judaism, no longer a social democratic form, no longer a humanist tradition, but something corrupt and morally horrid.
