Since 1948, Europe and US see Israel as a state of Holocaust victims, a state-shelter and not more than that. “Stay quiet in your corner, know your place and don’t raise head without permission, – they repeat.
“To defend yourself, to protect your interests, to act as any other state in the world – no way. Because you are not a normal state; because we accept you only when your are weak, when you are victims.”
Do Jews need to justify their right to have a “normal state” ?
Is the concept of “the nation of priests” still relevant?
