    Good post Lauren, it needs to be read by all the “progressives” who thought there was little difference between Clinton and Trump and undermined her candidacy in various ways, they bear some responsibility for these bad things happening.
    By the way, its not Trump that declared Jerusalem Israel’s capital, Israel did, as every country chooses its own capital. Indeed it is their seat of government. I think it best that Palestinians and their allies fully face that fact as there is no way to peace without accepting that, just as there is no way to peace without Israelis and their allies facing the reality of Palestinian desire for independence, and with their capital in Jerusalem too.

    The great thing about tension is that, very occasionally,

    it brings out something that isn’t the usual boilerplate.

    Divided loyalties.

    There, I’ve committed it to print.

    (Well, not print, really. Pixels.)

    One is not supposed to question the divided loyalties of Jews,

    particularly of American Jews, in the face of genocide.

    But, genocides take place all over the world, every day.

    So, let’s get down to business:

    Sheldon Adelson is not Jewish life.

    Benjamin Netanyahu is not Jewish life.

    Disgusting treatment of others is not Jewish life.

    Vulgarity is not Jewish life.

    Jerusalem, the physical city, belongs to the people of the planet Earth.

    Know what taught me that?

    Admiration of Jewish life.

    (This website is getting dreary.

    I go to it because I’m compelled to by another part of my thinking.

    That compulsion its waning.)
