Peter Beinart is on a crusade to save the patrimony of liberal Zionism in Israel and America. In a wide-ranging interview, the charismatic author slams the American Jewish establishment and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He also talks about his latest book, which is already provoking controversy.
NEW YORK CITY − “If Israel does not survive as a Jewish democratic state, I want to be able to tell my children that I did what little I’m capable of. I’m a writer, so what I can do is to try to sound an alarm. I just want to be able to say that to them.”
The man speaking is Peter Beinart, the journalist, essayist and author who became American Jewry’s most prominent prophet of doom following the publication of his 2010 article, “The Failure of the Jewish Establishment.” It is a role that will now be cemented in stone with the publication of his new book “The Crisis of Zionism,” in which he calls on American Jews “to defend the dream of a democratic Jewish state before it is too late.” http://www.haaretz.com/weekend/magazine/is-archliberal-peter-beinart-good-for-the-jews-1.420178
