Measuring Distance Between Us

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2011

Many Jews feel compelled to choose between two Israel narratives they perceive as competing. The one sees Israel as a nation besieged, increasingly alone in the family of nations. The other sees an Israel that daily finds new ways to shoot itself in the foot, that betrays its democratic commitment with gleeful disdain. These two conditions feed upon each other, but if anyone is able to break the cycle, perhaps there is some small hope for a brighter time.
