notes an article at NRO
about the left's second disastrous Israeli election in a row. There has always been an element within Jewish society, including within Israel itself, that opposes the notion of a Jewish state, and fetishizes Jewish powerlessness. Yoram Hazony's The Jewish State
and Efraim Karsh's Fabricating Israeli History
deal with the history of this movement, and its intellectual dishonesty, respectively. I've mentioned them before, but they're both fine books, although Karsh's is a little polemical at moments.
