Call The Jewish News



ccording to the
popular wisdom of
our era, Jews should
leave Judea. It isn't wisdom
or morality that keeps the
issue in the headlines; it is
faith. The disputed land, any
scrap of earth that Jews
might claim for Israel, is ho-
ly and that invokes some
special considerations.
Just as some people hate
Jews, particularly successful
Jews, Israel's existence, which
the Vatican refuses to
recognize, and against which
three generations of Muslim
clerics have preached "Holy
War," upsets whole nations
past the point of monomania.
Israel's enemies generally
worry less about facts than
about truthS. Pre-Christian
peoples believed that Israel
and its ineffable God mocked
their pagan gods. Today,
millions of Muslims, and
many in the Church, believe
that a living Israel too-clearly
suggests a divine promise
redeemed. And to those who,
like Nazis and some
Japanese, reject the concept of
universal moral law, a suc-
cessful Israel threatens the
order of the world. Faith and
feeling come before thought.

"And ye shall be unto me a
kingdom of priests, and a ho-
ly nation," says Exodus 19:6.
Some Christians believe that
the Jews are the subject of
that sentence. They tend to
hold Israel up to impossible
standards. "I will bless them
that bless you, and curse
them that curse you," says
Genesis 12:3. Other Chris-
tians apply such clauses to
themselves. Islam teaches
that Jewish sins, vividly
highlighted in the Koran,
have voided all such promises.
Israel remains a theological
Faith keeps Israel in the
news. Yet in a world hungry
for spiritual guidance, the
Jews who are just like other
people, as the hold joke goes,
"only more so," stand mute to
their own spirituality. 'Ibo
many Americans believe that
Jews are godless; probably
more than 99 percent of
humanity has wrong or hor-
ribly wrong information
about Judaism.

Israel's 3.7 million Jews,
beset by more than 180
million Arabs and the fixed
attention of the world, are ill
served by such ignorance. Ig-
norance, and faith, combined
with the Jews' own self-
skepticism, activism, and
habitual public soul-
searching, will destroy Israel
