There is a problem in American Judaism. It is a problem of basic theology. Those of us who believe in Torah Judaism recognize that evil exists, and to combat evil requires common sense and weapons.
Secular American Jews—Democrats almost exclusively—believe in utopian solutions to, well, everything. Which means they advocate for gun free zones, an invitation to Jew-hating mass murderers.
My good friend Daniel Greenfield’s article which analyzes this theological split is both timely and accurate.
