The Kingdom of Judea vs the State of Israel

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2008

Pogrom is a powerful word in Israel, and for Prime Minister Olmert to use it, not in recollection, but to describe the marauding violence of Israeli settlers, shows just how divided a country Israel is. On the one side, a modern democracy, the extant State of Israel. On the other, a halachic theocracy, the imagined Kingdom of Judea, free to oppress and exclude as the rabbis and Haredi see fit.
