A Goldblog reader writes in reference to the anti-democratic legislation now making its way through the Knesset:
"Even after years of watching the Arab-Israeli conflict, with all the ugly behavior it engenders, after "Who Is a Jew," after the corruption scandals, and the sexual harassment by Israeli officials and all of that, this is first time I have read about something going on in Israel to which I have immediately reacted, "I don't want to have any association with a country that does that." I would not be able to say that "Prayer for the State of Israel" in the Shabbat service. I would not want my kids to sing Hatikvah. It would be acquiescence to and association with something hateful and disgusting and profoundly un-Jewish."
