You Have The Right To Shut Up

"There's a controversy that has bubbled up in the Jewish world today around this question: Is it good for Israel when Jews go public with harsh criticism of Israel? One recent example is a Jewish group that has been presenting on college campuses a stinging, single-minded and, in the eyes of many, exaggerated critique of the Israeli army. Presumably, this type of collective soul-searching demonstrates the Jewish values of fairness and good faith and ought to generate some goodwill in return. "

Or so the folks over at Jewish Voice for Peace seem to think.

Read the rest of David Suissa's piece on the StandWithUs website and see why this isn't really such a good idea when facing those to whom the only good Israeli is a dead Israeli.
