Abandoning the Jewish state

Apr 27, 2018

Leave a Comment

An ideologically bankrupt A.B. Yehoshua wants to replace the Jewish state with an Israeli-Palestinian federation of some sort. This is the inevitable end result of a long process of loss of Jewish-Zionist identity that afflicts the hard Left. Having despaired of the “two-state solution,” Yehoshua is now dumping the idea of Israel all-together. Ugh!
