Desparately Seeking

If you were to ask me what the spiritual climate is in Israel, I would sum it up in the phrase "desparately seeking".

Israel is inundated by NGOs that profess to seek peace and pursue human rights, but are really anti-Israel and supported by people affected by anti-Semitism.

My article this month was sparked by recently having finished reading the Israeli bestseller "Catch the Jew!" ...

... what comes out in the book is a great vacuum of hope due to the lack of a compelling worldview that would give courage for being in and preserving Israel.

My article talks about the situation in Israel - but I wonder how much it is reflected in the rest of the world? Do take a look at the article here and then join in the conversation by leaving a comment, either there or here.
