Netanyahu is encouraged by the fact that some of his critics are starting to cast doubt on the deal, and even to echo his arguments against it.17:39 30.07.15 | 0 comments
Were it not for the fall of Jerusalem and the subsequent triumph of Christianity, Jewish religion which had spread among the the 'Gentiles' would have turned out to be wholy different not at least because of the great influence of the Graeco-Roman world on its formation. Judaism in the diaspora survived because the tenacity of its adherents and their readiness to die for the sanctification of the 'Name'. Judaism in the diaspora has changed with times according to how the Jews fared among the 'Gentiles'. Reform Judaism is no less a Judaism than any other stream. Hassidic Judaism is just another interpratation and no more coherent or relevant. There had been Judaisms before the Halakha! For any one to suggest that 'Jewish life' (whatever that means) can be fulfilled only by living in Israel is utter rubbish.
