Some well-known Jewish writers — Noam Chomsky being the best known — do not just criticize Israel, but they hate Israel. Hate is a strong emotion, and we do not expect it in print a great deal, and certainly not when it is directed toward one’s own people, one’s own family. But here it is: a few dozen writers, a few thousand signers of petitions, all claiming to be Jews, all asserting a strong hatred for Israel. Why ?
I have written an essay that I call “Prolegomena to the Study of Jews Who Hate Israel” that seeks, not easy answers, but answers nonetheless, but mostly tries to point to ways in which we could come to a better understanding of these interesting folks.
