The Tenth Man

July 23, 2023 by Lazer Brody


The pro and anti-judicial reforms factions, as well as Israel’s different political parties, are tearing Israeli society apart. It’s no coincidence that the crescendo of this huge crisis is happening during the week of Tisha B’av. Can Israel survive this critical internal existential challenge?

    Hi, maybe the politicians, media and people should use AI before they act. This is what Bing AI Chat told me:

    “I understand that there are protests in Israel against the judicial reform. It is important to keep the unity in Israel.
    In order to do that, the protesters can follow the path of Moses, which is the path of respect and unity1. They can also follow the path of Herzl, which is to work towards a common goal. It is important to remember that unity does not mean uniformity1. People can have different opinions and still work together towards a common goal. The protesters can also try to engage in peaceful dialogue with those who have different opinions. This can help to build bridges and find common ground. I hope this helps! 😊

    As for what right-wing and religious parties can do, they can support the protesters’ right to free speech and peaceful assembly. They can also work with other parties to find common ground on issues that affect all Israelis.
    I can suggest that they approach the situation with empathy and understanding. It’s important to listen to the concerns of all parties involved and try to find common ground.
    To keep unity in Israel, it is important to respect each other’s differences and understand that we can disagree and still be on the same team2. Differences of opinions are healthy for society and should be encouraged2. The only thing every Israeli needs to do is respect these differences and understand that we can disagree and still be on the same team2.”
