Hi, Kathleen! I agree it’s important to acknowledge the decades-long silence. But the most damaging silence has come from America’s liberals than from America’s liberal Jews. Just look at the Democratic Party, mostly comprised of gentiles, for an example. Since the 1980s, I have known quite a few Jews who have been willing to criticize Israel. But they are not invited on the boob tube and Wolf Blitzer ignores them. Back in 1948, a number of Jews, including Albert Einstein, criticized Israeli fascism in a letter to the New York Times. Over the years, I have found that more Jews than gentiles are willing to criticize Israel.
