When the State of Israel was established, it was received wisdom that every Jew felt a sense of pride and walked a little bit taller. After 1967, Entebbe, the economic miracle, the absorption of immigrants, the technological and medical advances, the pride was even greater. Even people who had only a peripheral connection to the community were able to share in the feelings of achievement. So when Israel does things which may not be so commendable, should we not share in the distress? Friends are happy to share the good times. Family should share the bad times as well.
