Every people has its quislings. They are an inescapable burden, a wound that tears at the sinew that binds a people together, a source of legitimacy for the affronts hurled by one’s enemies.
One would think that Jews, who for millennia wandered the earth as a people apart as an oppressed people whose very lives were subject to the whims of their rulers and their neighbors — who suffered through inquisitions, pogroms, the Holocaust, and the threats of their Middle East neighbors to extinguish them — would be relatively immunized against this affliction.
Quite the contrary. Within the Jewish community are a number of highly sophisticated, well-funded, and superbly marketed organizations that work against Israel’s continued existence even as the region implodes in unrelenting chaos that threatens not only the state’s viability but also portends another holocaust.
