Israel is just a state. Don’t love it. Don’t hate it. It is just a place like any other. It is not a light unto nations. It is not the new apartheid state. It is not Nazi. It is not the New Jerusalem. It isn’t a brave experiment in communal living and socialism. It isn’t a colonial outpost. It is just three small cities and some suburbs where the unmurdered Jews of Europe, the Middle East and Russia live with their grandchildren.
