The state of Israel is under attack from Jews in the diaspora.
Isi Leibler is former Jewish leader in the Diaspora, who have made aliyah. In an featured OP Ed he raises serious questions with the “Jewishness” of Jews who attack the state of Israel. Leibler speaks about “Jew haters” of Zion.
This is what Leibler writes:
” We have grown accustomed to the ravings of the Jew haters of Zion – the loony left who identify with Hamas and Hizbullah rather than their own people, the post-Zionists who seek to undo the Jewish character of Israel and the bleeding heart liberals who make excuses for the criminality of our neighbors and condemn us for defending ourselves”
“But what is more frustrating is an emerging new trend, involving even well-meaning friends of Israel, primarily liberals, who demand that as Jews and “partners” of Israel, they are entitled to partake in determining Israeli security and defense related policies”.
“The most notorious of these is “J Street” in the US which shamelessly lobbies its government to pressure Israel to adopt policies contrary to those determined by our democratically elected government.”
“Despite living thousands of miles away and not subject to the consequences of the policies they promote, they have the gall to insist that they are more sensitive to the security needs of the Jewish state than we Israelis. Being “genuinely pro-peace,” they purport to be acting in our best interests by exercising “tough love” and urging their president to bludgeon us to toe their line. Their hubris and arrogance is mind-boggling”.

A man is not a Jew if he is only one outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical. No, a man is a Jew if he is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a man’s praise is not from men, but from God
Who is a Jew inwardly?
I guess, that is a Jew who obeys God of the Bibles plans for the Jewish people?
then the LORD your God will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you.
Since God of the Bible, speaks about a restoration of the Jewish people in their ancient homeland, I guess those “Jews” who refuse to be restored, live in disobedience?
Not so strangely, many of them end up with the enemies of God of Israel. They have deleted their own calling, rejected their only true Jewishness.
