By many measures, Israel has never been stronger or healthier. Its GDP continues to rise, its population continues to increase, and its defense capabilities continue to improve. And yet Zionism today is in crisis.
If Israel incorporates the West Bank into borders, it will either cease to be a Jewish-majority state or cease to be a democracy. Equally grave is a slippage in support for Israel among younger Jews throughout the world, particularly in the United States.
Peter Beinart, former editor of The New Republic and columnist at The Daily Beast, visits Zócalo to make the case that Israel’s dilemmas today are ones of power, not of weakness—and that safeguarding Israel’s future will require a return to Zionism’s founding ideals.
KJZZ and Zócalo Public Square invite you to join the conversation on Monday, May 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the Heard Museum.
