The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles’ Vol. 24 No. 48 January 22-24, 2010 issue has an article about Professor Micah Goodman. This professor was hosted by the Israeli Consulate to discuss the idea of Zionism.
Professor Goodman states there are two original strands of Zionism:
- Zionism of Peace-a view that Israel is a safe haven for Jews. Theodore Herzl-The joining of “The Brotherhood of Nations”.
- Zionism of Land-Rav Kook, the return to the mystical land of our forefathers. Not fighting negative, but celebrating positive.
The problem is that “The Brotherhood of Nations” as Theodore Herzl calls it has “Borders and not Boundaries”. At this point in time in “History”, Israel looks like an example of violence. Zionism is under attack because of the lack of Borders and the examples of violence and persecution by what the world calls “The People of God”.
We can be “People of God”, even “Children of God”, but we must also consult God in our decision making. Talking to God is what makes our relationship to and with “Him”.
If Israel is a Country it is Borders and not Boundaries, like the other members of what Theodore Herzl calls, “The Brotherhood of Nations”.
