The Apartness of the Jewish People
Joshua Runyan concludes his Aug. 1 Opening Thoughts column with a comment about Israel and Jewry having to “go it alone.” Presumably Balaam’s observation (Num. 23:9) about such apartness of the Jewish people underlies this remark. The Afrikaner (South African) word meaning apartness is apartheid. Logically, an apartheid people have every right to live as an apartheid nation in an apartheid State.
