“Zionism is one of the success stories of the 20th century, but it has not properly addressed its religious core – specifically the Temple Mount, which can no longer be ignored. ”
Thoughtful article from Haaretz that lenses Zionism from a completely unexpected perspective.
According to Scholem, the renewed encounter with Hebrew and its innate sanctities was a “threat [that] confronts us [as] a necessary consequence of the Zionist undertaking … Will its submerged religious power not erupt one day?… The revivers of the [Hebrew] language did not believe in the Day of Judgment, to which they destined us by their acts. May the recklessness which has set us on this apocalyptic path not bring about our perdition.“
