Israel’s ‘corrupting’ war under fire – from chief rabbi

Britain’s chief rabbi, Jonathan Sacks, has warned Israel that it is adopting a stance “incompatible” with the deepest ideals of Judaism, and that the current conflict with the Palestinians is “corrupting” Israeli culture.

In a move that will send shockwaves through Israel and the world Jewish community, Professor Sacks departed from his policy of offering only public endorsement of Israel by giving an explicit verdict on the effect that 35 years of military occupation and decades of conflict are having on Israel and the Jewish people.
