How not to save Israel: Response to Gershom Gorenberg
Richard Landes gives Gorenberg’s article a well-deserved and thoughtful fisking. For a full-fledged review of Gorenberg’s book (The Unmaking of Israel), follow the link embedded in the post at Augean Stables.
A friend asked me what I thought of the following piece by Gershom Gorenberg published by Slate. Disclosure: Gorenberg and I were once close friends. He was a regular at the Center for Millennial Studies, when wrote his book End of Days: Fundamentalism and the Struggle for the Temple Mount. He even asked me once to substitute for him at an NIF [!] function in New York - before I knew what I was dealing with (more on that below).
