One response to “Judith Butler. Primo Levi for the Present. 2006 2/10”

    This is an oversimplification of the Shoah’s place in Jewish and Israeli consciousness. The Shoah, arguably, proved the early zionists more correct than even they could have imagined in their pronouncements of the impossibility of a Jewish future in Europe. This underscores the need for Israel, not specific military actions. One can debate the best defense strategy for Israel and, assuming that all agree on Israel’s right to exist, the Shoah is not invoked. Sad to see Butler simplify things.
