Could the EU Teach Jews How to Argue?

A new European Union policy that encourages wide participation in public debates could be just the model that the Jewish world has been searching for to enhance contact between Diaspora Jews and Israel.

Imagine a declaration signed and circulated online among hundreds of thousands of Jews around the world, urging support for a “Ten Points for a Long-Lasting and Democratic Peace Process.” To everyone's surprise, the appeal goes viral, with the number of signatures increasing by tens of thousands in three weeks. It’s discussed on Sunday political talk shows and debated during the U.S. Presidential campaign.
