In Israel’s complacent and nationalistic society, there are still pockets of several hundred thousand citizens who think otherwise, who are shocked at what is going on and worried about where things are going. They have no father and mother, no political party, no ideological movement and certainly no alternative leadership to identify with and guide them. So most of them wrap themselves in their apathy and despair, and a minority find a niche, often too narrow, in the countless non-profits and organizations that march from time to time in Tel Aviv.
All these causes are worthy, but they don’t add up to any meaningful political activity. They all share an ideological common denominator, and that’s why they all should be part of a broader, unified struggle.
