Scary Jew Shadow on Cover of Time Magazine
New York - There is a new battle being waged over the future of Jerusalem, but not between the usual Israeli and Palestinian players. According to TIME Magazine, (ti.me) in their cover story out this week entitled ‘The Battle for Jerusalem,’ this time, the warring factions are the ultra-orthodox or ‘charedi’ Jews and the secular Israelis.
TIME author Karl Vick writes, ‘Since 1967, Jerusalem has become a resolutely Jewish city, so much so that the central question preoccupying residents today is not how it might be divided with Palestinians – for they are widely ignored of late – but rather just how religiously conservative the city can become while remaining a place most Israeli Jews could imagine living.’ The article states that the ultra-orthodox have only recently made a ‘Lazarus-like comeback,’ one which ‘threatens the fabric of Israel, or as they see it, points the way to the nation’s salvation.’
