We often read accusations, by pro-whites, that Jews oppose autonomy for whites while supporting the Jewish ethno-state of Israel. As a matter of fact, Israel has its own share of evil leftists who work toward the the destruction of its Jewish character. One such demon is Shulamit Aloni, sometimes derogatorily called “Shulamit Baloney”.
I remember well that when I lived in Israel, she was the minister of education and she was held in much contempt. She, and her political party (Ratz) opposed anything that stood for Jewish heritage. She was on a mission to make Israel a generic, multicultural state with no specific ethnic character. It is not only Orthodox Jews who despise her; even those of Reform background see the danger in her ways. David Bedein writes:
Secular Israeli society fears that if Reform and Conservative were allowed free reign in Israel, then they would do the same thing that they have done in the US, namely, to abandon principle in favor of “pluralism”.
Imagine what a situation we would face if we would see ads in the Israeli papers here for a “same-sex” wedding at the King David Hotel, an interfaith wedding ceremony at the LaRomme Hotel, and to then to get an invitation to a wedding at the Carelton Hotel to a couple who have no pretensions about being Jewish because only their fathers are Jews.
Reform and Conservative Jews are more than welcome to come to Israel to help Judaize a country that now copes with a strong internal Israeli antisemitic fervor, that was expressed in the previous government, when retired Israel Minister of Education Shulamit Baloney virtually eliminated Jewish instruction from the public education school system, as a result of which we have a new generation of Israeli children who are growing up without any sense of Jewish or Zionist history, let alone exposure to Bible, Talmud or other Jewish sources, even from a secularist point of view.
Tragically, instead of the small Reform and Conservative movements joining with the Orthodox to find ways to reach out to the majority of the Israeli Jewish population who see themselves as “traditional”, if not Orthodox Jews, both the Conservative and Reform movements have joined a coaltion known as HEMDAT, which is currently conducting a vigorous campaign to force an observant Jew to open the shopping center that he owns on Shabbat. HEMDAT is also working to stop the government from protecting the rights of Jews so that they will not have to work on Shabbat. The previous Israeli government worked to allow new firms in Israel to open their industries also on Shabbat, making it difficult for even traditional Jews who would rather rest one day a week to get a job.
So there is some consistency in the madness of the left and Israel does have its version of Heidi Beirich. At least in Israel, the far left has not become the only acceptable political position. Most Israelis are smart enough to realize that if we take the “Jewish” out of “Jewish state”, there would no longer be a State of Israel. So it’s not that the Jewish far left does not want to turn Israel into a bland cultureless political entity, rather it’s much tougher to sell such a proposition to the Israeli public than to the American, or European, public.
