For American Jews, Zionism Died When Israel's Government and People Embraced Donald Trump

"So, as the largest diaspora Jewish community in the world worries that Trump’s America is bad for our children and grandchildren, there is absolutely no way Israel can say "Come home to Israel," because Israel is allied with our potential oppressors.

Could Herzl have imagined that? Most American Jews can hardly bear looking at Trump on television but in Jerusalem his postered face is festooned everywhere. How can anyone suggest Israel as our potential refuge, when it has slipped even deeper into the right-wing morass than America has - and it is likely the US will get itself out of it long before Israel does?"
-MJ Rosenberg, "For American Jews, Zionism Died When Israel's Government and People Embraced Donald Trump"
