Proof that Judaism and Israel are not synonymous. From the Guardian:
A group of Britain’s most prominent Jews has called on Israel to cease its military operations in Gaza
immediately, warning that its actions, far from improving the country’s
security, will “strengthen extremism, destabilise the region, and
exacerbate tensions inside Israel”.
Describing themselves, as
“profound and passionate supporters” of Israel – and supporting its
right to defend itself against the “war crime” of Hamas rocket attacks
– they added that the current tactics threatened to undermine
international support for Israel.
