I read the article and I was just wondering if the author actually believes what she wrote. There certainly can be a Jewish culture outside of the State of Israel. But when she cited an Israeli author who mentioned that he could not be a whole Jew outside of Israel, he was echoing what is written in the Babylonian Talmud and by a great many Jewish scholars, rabbis and philosophers in the diaspora. The example provided by the article of a Hebrew writer who wrote in Europe, who was not widely read and who ended up being murdered by the Nazis in a concentration camp does not seem to me, at least, much of an example of a rival for the kind of vibrant Hebrew culture that exists in Israel today.
The author of the article you cited, seems to me to be very weak in the kind of historical lessons to be drawn from her chief example and is probably equally weak on her prophecies about Israel's future; prophecies, I might add, that are not factually based.
You may be right, bro, but that never stopped anyone here from having an opinion :-)
