In his Aug. 6 column “Haredim: The real existential threat to Israel,” Rabbi Shammai Engelmayer has bravely told the truth about the demographic threat to Israel. It’s not the Arabs, as is constantly repeated, but the Jews. Soon a majority of Israeli Jews will be uneducated, unemployed, and unproductive. As more and more of Israeli Jews turn away from the modern world and from the diaspora, the world’s Jews will turn away from Israel. And astonishingly, no one seems concerned. Where are all those fervent Zionists, jumping to defend the Jewish state against any imagined attack? Without dramatic action, Israel will become just another third-world country – backward and corrupt.
