Jews warned to be “good”

Are you Jewish? Ambivalent about Israel? Critical of the occupation in the occupied territories?

You’re a worry, a “fifth Jew”, and must be rescued. Yet more navel-gazing from the US Zionist hierarchy that utterly ignores Israeli behaviour. The message is clear: don’t ask questions, support Israel – ideally with cash – and be a good Jew.

Reassuringly, more and more Jews are rejecting this narrow-minded interpretation of Judaism.
