We are living in the first era of Jewish independence since the time of the Maccabees. It was over 2000 years ago that Jews last controlled their own destiny before the creation of the modern State of Israel. The independence the Maccabees gained lasted about 80 years. Modern day Israel is 67 years old.
Today’s existential dangers threatening Israel’s sovereignty are no better demonstrated than in Gershom Gorenberg’s The Unmaking of Israel. Read this book and you will have a better understanding of how Israeli-made problems are the most essential to solve in order for Israel to remain Jewish and democratic. This book sheds light on the corrupting influence of the Israeli occupation, how a minority settler population imposes its will on the majority, the breakdown of law and much more.
Gorenberg makes you think in this meticulously researched and informative book. Understanding what the problems are is the first step to formulating the solutions.
