judaism, politics 

There's a lot of complexity for progressive Jews such as myself- who believe in social justice, who deeply oppose the right wing government that has been at power (while not a majority) in Israel for two decades, and at the same time knowing the lessons of history, knowing that we aren't safe, that we deserve self-determination.

I believe in Israel, even as I deeply disagree with its policies, just as I believe in the United States while being devastated by Bush and Trump.

If you're devastated by Bush an Trump but not by all the other presidents that commited war crimes abroad, can you really call yourself a progressive or a believer in social justice ?
Ever heard of the concept of "Herrenvolk democracy" ?
