A different take on Israel and Other Important Issues

The most dangerous place in the world to live according to Jewish Morals is the State of Israel.

Oh, you can do the ceremonial stuff that comes instead of living morally very easily. If you are one of those dissociated Jews who think that Judaism is about ceremonies, you can delude yourself into thinking you’re living a Jewish life in the State of Israel.
You can give all the charity you want in the State of Israel. The State couldn’t care less if you impoverish yourself. But God help you if you act to eliminate poverty and misery.

Just try to live according to the Moral Principles of the Torah in the State of Israel.
A moral Jew brings the Inquisition on himself or herself in the State of Israel. I mean that literally, not figuratively.

Every aspect of our lives in the State of Israel seems planned and designed to undermine our moral structure: the perpetual wars we are forced to participate in from the age of 18, being under threat of legal reprisals unless we turn a blind eye to Child Trafficking, being under threat of legal reprisals unless we turn a blind eye to financial corruption, the difficulty of making a decent living here without cheating, being encouraged to ignore the suffering and mistreatment of others…all of it seems designed to destroy the Jewish People morally.

The State of Israel seems like the last, and most heartbreaking, test of our moral mettle. The miracle is: Some of us are passing that test.
