    Well, prophets' part in this article was rather a rhetorical figure and Shtrasler hardly advocates a literal program of prophets for Israel policy making. Maybe the article will start making more sense for you if you interpret it that way. But curiously enough, the superman you evoke has much to do with the prophets. If you read French, see Eco's "De Superman au surhomme", then see the visions of the "new type of Jew" in the founding years of Israel state, where the biblical elements are transformed into humanist terms. For those, if you read Hebrew, you will enjoy Boris Schatz's utopia "Yerushalayim haBnenuya" 1918 or Herzl's Altneuland or any other Zionist text dealing with constructing the "new type" before IIWW. For the "superman type" you also may give a try to dissertation written recently in Beer-Sheva Univ. on Zionist eugenetic practices in pre-IIWW Palestine and the social anthrop. works on reintegration of diaspora-dominated elements into the "new type" image after 1967

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
