A few months ago, Rabbi Hecht wrote an article, in the Jewish Tribune (Toronto), regarding Jews who protested again Israel's recent intervention in Gaza. (This article can be seen at http://www.jewishtribune.ca/TribuneV2/content/view/1285/53/.) In response, Jews who did protest challenged his assertions against them, arguing that anti-Zionist views have always been prevalent within the Jewish People and that they are no different than their predecessors who identified strongly as Jews yet were anti-Zionist. Zionism and Anti-Zionism though, Rabbi Hecht responds in his latest article in the Jewish Tribune, is not the issue. The issue, applying the words of the Rav, is shared fate and shared destiny.
