Taking on Kevin Bloom about SA Jews and Israel

Here’s my article in the Mail and Guardian taking issue with Kevin Bloom’s article the day before.

As a former South African who grew up in the Eighties and Nineties in a Jewish family in Krugersdorp, and now as an editor of the English edition of Israel’s largest circulation daily, I believe I have an insight into Bloom’s contention that South Africa’s Jewish community needs a Beinart-type messiah to lead them out of the darkness that is their “Israel right-or-wrong” mentality.
