Following centuries of ever-refined definition by the Church Germany finally arrived at the ultimate definition: a single grandparent! And we have nothing better to do than indulge in the game of ourselves defining Who is a Jew, and which group is superior, which inferior? In the eyes of our enemies we are all Jews, whatever we ourselves choose to call ourselves and each other. In the Galut we face the same basic historical facts, a future uncertain only in the short term. In Israel we also face an uncertain future. A Hamas ?moderate? recently described their offer of a 50-year Hudna as time in which the Jews would leave the state of their own free will thereby realizing the ultra-nationalist dream of a Palestinian state within pre-1947 boundaries. If we continue to discriminate against each other, if indeed we divide along partisan lines and finally fall into the long-warned Kulturkampf, we will achieve for our enemies that which they could not achieve on their own.
