J.Post August 1: A Stance of Contradictions

Sir, - It is extremely difficult to discern whether Gershon Baskin is engaging in a frenzied polemic against Orthodoxy or making a rather disarranged statement of his views regarding the future of the Jewish state. In an op-ed replete with contradictions the most glaring indication of his persistent confusion is his condemnation of messianism while declaring his belief that the 'Jewish people have a right to a homeland in the Land of Israel.'

Baskin should understand that while he sees the vital need for the establishment of a Palestinian state, there is no Palestinian of stature who believes that the Jewish people have any rights at all to the Land of Israel.
