When the first Israeli Knesset met, they had a problem. It was suggested that seating be right to left, as in some European assemblies, but no one would sit on the right. The right was associated with fascism. Jews were good leftists. The Jewish-led left led the fight to end colonialism.

Building on Shari’s statement below, I thought about the faith that drives US. Shari said, “What is so sobering, is that it’s bribery that steals the heart, not religion.” Ours is not a religion, but it is a faith. Ours is not a faith in things in things unseen, but of seeing things others do not see.
