I had occasion to pick up the latest edition of the Jewish Journal (Los Angeles) today. There were a number of articles about Israel, Jews, Moslems, and the nuclear Deal with Iran. The articles had various points of view. One by Gina Nahai pointed out that the Shah of Iran promoted the rights of women while the mullahs (including the supposedly more liberal Rohani) of present day Iran suppress women. I agree, but nonetheless at the moment those are the guys who have the power in Iran and with whom we have to deal. A number of articles opposed the deal to various degrees. Dennis Prager is opposed to the deal and criticized American Jews who support it. David Suissa disagrees with the deal, but is against allowing disagreement to split the Jewish people apart. Rob Eshman points out that not all Israelis are opposed to the deal. A number of Israeli security experts find it a good deal. My opinion is that it is not a good deal but it is the possible deal, and there is no better alternative. The brightest article in the Journal was one by Haissam Hassanein, a Moslem Egyptian-American student at Tel Aviv University. After hearing bad stuff about Israel before going there, he found Israelis to be a diverse normal friendly people of various religions and opinions. Promoting this sort of image of Israel in the Middle East may very well be the solution to achieving Herzl's dream.
