Gottfried on Getting Israel Right

Email Print

Paul Gottfried, brilliant author of Multiculturalism and the Politics of Guilt, clarifies the nature of the government of Israel in Getting Israel Right. He brings up the issue not to attack Israel, (he tends to support Israel), but to attack the phenomenal hypocrisy of neocons and others who have one standard for Israel and another standard for the West, “Does believing that Jews have a right to their own country require for the sake of consistency the acceptance of an English right to an English country? I have asked these questions many times, but honest answers, as opposed to outbursts of sputtering rage, have been few and far between.”
