Words of the Week: Hillel Halkin

LettersToAmericanJewishFriend

“I didn’t write the book to defend Israeli policies, and I have never believed that, as a Jew, I should have to make the case for Israel’s existence to anyone. Whoever disputes it deserves to be scorned, not reasoned with.”

Source: Hillel Halkin, “Letters to an American Friend,” in Mosaic magazine.

This piece is a version of the introduction to a reissued edition of the book, which I’ve already pre-ordered.
