Donald, I agree at least that the Tikkun/Lerner voices are not as loud as the Abe Foxman types. I see that as a problem, and am trying in my own life to give voice to the “Tikkun wing” of Judaism.
One way to strengthen that project is to loudly and unequivocally object when people, like many of those in this comment thread, say things like “the organized Jewish community” hates Muslims that “mainstream Judaism = Jewish religious Zionism.” It’s simply not true, at least in my experience and those of most of the Jewish people that I know.
Still, like many Jewish readers of MW, I am concerned that for a growing number of people, organized Judaism = Zionism. One way to combat that trend is to promote voices within Judaism that are post-Zionist, anti-Zionist, or do not take a position on Zionism. Another way to do it is to make honest, good-faith arguments that will convince others, and not just appeal to the true-believers. That’s why I initially commented on this article’s misleading title.
I am sorry that others in this thread — including a MW staff writer! — have chosen to take a very different approach.
