Debated Book Illuminates Essential Truth

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2012

How does the modern Jew handle the dissonance between power and victimhood? He lives with both, knowing that everything depends on his ability to maintain that balance. In Israel, he is wrestling with that balance, as the corruption of power and the paranoia of victimhood combine to strike out violently at the now-oppressed other. In balance, Israel remains a Jewish and a democratic state. Out of balance? A bleak future indeed.
