Jewish Politics

Professor Ruth Wisse
1823 Views     2 Ratings

Jews see themselves as a minority. If everyone functioned like the Jews, it would be a wonderful world.

Democracy is modeled after the Jews with self accountability, and a moral code. When a nation has the power to create and be successful, then they must protect themselves from others who want to take it away from them.

Professor Ruth Wisse brings examples from Margaret Thatcher's strong response to the attack on the Falkland Islands as opposed to President Obama's approach of being more accommodating in order to be more appreciated.

Professor Wisse shares her views on the lack of a death penalty in Israel, and how Israeli’s populace views the army.
