A relatively new blogger has arrived in the neighborhood of left-leaning Jews with a connection to Israel who shun unthinking tribalism and strive to explore nuances, complications, and ambiguities. He is Charles Lenchner, and his blog is ambitiously titled “Peace in the Middle East.”
Charles has been out there in the peace activist trenches for years, in Israel and the U.S. He appears to be situated somewhere between me and the indispensable Jerry Haber, The Magnes Zionist. That probably means he is right more often than I am. Today, he endorsed what I wrote in the previous post about Jewish refugees from Arab lands. I am not sure how often we will agree, but his blog is worth checking out.
