EXTRACT

The new police chief is a kippah-wearing former settler. So is the chief of the Secret Service. More and more of the army and police officers are settlers. In the government and in the Knesset, the settlers wield a huge influence. Some 18 years ago, when my friends and I first declared an Israeli boycott of the products of the settlements, we saw what was coming. THIS is now the real battle for Israel.

Phi Beta Iota: Riveting. The author connects Spengler, Toynbee, the sweep of history and the idea of the state, into one rock solid snapshot of where Israel’s troubled soul is right now. Remember the USS Liberty!
