Professor Chaim Gans Fights Back Against Judith Butler's Critique of Zionism

In her latest book, Parting Ways: Jewishness and the Critique of Zionism, Judith Butler critiques Zionism as a perversion of the Jewish tradition. She argues for a bi-national Israel. In his review of the book, Molad Senior Fellow Professor Chaim Gans argues that Butler's book is philosophically problematic. Gans argues that Butler's claim — that Zionism's most recent iteration and “implimentation” is what makes it immoral — does not make a moral Zionism impossible, and that her binational solution is excessive.
