"...because we don't have any hopes in a final redemption..."? And she claims she learned this in a Jewish community somewhere? Certainly some Jews have these beliefs. But doctrine in Orthodoxy, Conservatism and Reform says otherwise. Makes Ms. Butler's statement that she had a lot of Jewish education seem phony. She also touts Buber's tired idea of a binational state. No one who actually lives in the region wants this. Only some outsiders, like Butler and the late Said. She also evades the difficult conundrum of what to do about thousands of nuisance rockets falling on Sderot, killing and maiming dozens. Evades Hamas rhetoric, and popular Palestinian views, about the alleged nonhuman nature of Jews. Evades learning military history, which would show, as Col. Kemp said, the Gaza campaign was the most humane on record. Consider Sherman. Her views are lopsided. That is to say, bigoted. And as one of Jewish descent, attacking the Jewish state, she obtains publicity.
