Nationalism and religious fanaticism are a dangerous combination in any country.
It means that people worship their collective selves instead of a universal God, and regard rival nations as the equivalent of demons.
I hesitated to post this video because I don’t want to associate myself with the anti-Semites in the comment thread. I have had many Jewish friends and acquaintances during my life, none of whom adhered to the theology described by the brave Israeli journalist Yossi Gurvitz. I do not think that what he describes represents the best values of Judaism.
But I think what he describes is real, and should not be ignored in the name of tolerance.
I do not criticize Israeli policy from the standpoint of moral superiority. I don’t think the Israeli government has done anything that the American government has not done.
