How To Be Secular

Today on Tablet, Liel Leibovitz talks church and state

Print Email

Liel Leibovitz eloquently judges the merits of a new book arguing for a firm reestablishment of the separation of church and state in America. Check it out here.

In a splendid new book, Jacques Berlinerblau, director of the Program for Jewish Civilization at Georgetown University, warns that the indispensable hedge that keeps church and state apart is being trimmed to within an inch of its existence and that if America is ever to be America again, we must rush to the hedge’s defense.

Reading the Tablet has reinforced my conclusion that Jews have no idea who they are or who they want to be. Spielberg was embarassed about being a Jew when he was a teenager; Ralph Loren didn’t like his name Lipschitz, Mark Zuckerberg announces that he is no longer a Jew and is an agnostic and promptly gives black Newark, NJ 100 million dollars but gives nothing to Israel. Can a Jew give back his genes and start afresh? 7, not6, 7 million Jews died in the Holocaust and not one Jew of the 600,000 German Jews could have killed Hitler in the 1920s or before. What kind of people are we when we can die for blacks civil rights, and we did, but can’t protect our own because we don’t have a survival gene and more importantly a revenge gene. All Arabs have both and we Jews have none. Israel was almost wiped out in 1967 because the State was led by an effete water engineer Levi Eshkol and again in 1973 because of Golda’s concern that the world would condemn Israel if she struck first against the massing Egyptians and Syrians. Are we really the smartest people in the world? Personally I believe in God and he could prove himself to me by making all Jews green. Green would solve a lot of problems so they couldn’t hide.
