I don’t agree with some of the first part of this with its implied interventionism. The position of the US on matters in the Middle East should be disengagement and neutrality. But otherwise Shapiro is correct, and since he is a Jew he can’t be faulted for saying it. American Jews are largely secular and their Jewishness is primarily an ethnic identity rather than a religion. As a Christian, I think all Jews need to convert to Christianity and find their true Messiah, but barring that, Jews need a religious revival the same way the fast fading Christian culture in this country does. Long term trends have this country on a rather fast highway to Hell.
Please do not muck up the comment thread with Jew bashing. We need to pray for the souls of Jewish people the same way we pray for the souls of Hindus, pagans, atheists, etc.
