Any intensive study of Israel newspapers such as the Jerusalem Post reveal an attitude which demands of Jews throughout the world unconditional support for any and all actions of the Israel government. I have been in numerous conversations with Jews who argue that lack of support for the Netanyahu government is akin to a betrayal of all Jews and is the first step toward a new Holocaust. Many liberal Jews in America and other parts of the world gaze with confusion at a government which favors laws that deny rights to those who converted to the Jewish religion or those whose father rather than mother was Jewish. I was raised in an Orthodox family in which my mom had separate dishes for all occasions during the year and we kept a strict kosher home. I find it insulting for someone in Israel like Avigdor Lieberman who was neither born in Israel nor was he raised Jewish to give me a lecture on the meaning of being a Jew.
The essence of love is to help those you love enjoy peace, security and a good life. Criticism of the Israel government is just that-criticism of a political group that has lost contact with reality, it is NOT an attack on Judaism. If one follows the Netanyahu argument of unconditional support for a government you believe is dangerous for Jews, it is akin to saying those who supported Hitler in order to avoid making “negative” comments about Germany were correct.
Bibi Netanyahu has lost respect of many Jews in the world for his failure to work for peace and his constant viewing any action in terms of how many votes can he get. A real Jew has principles, unfortunately, we lack evidence Bibi has any worthy of a Jew.
