W jednym ze swoich esejów z „London Review of Books” Judith Butler pytała: „Co mamy zrobić z Żydami, którzy nie identyfikują się z Izraelem, a przynajmniej z izraelskim państwem?”.

An unorthodox approach to the Israel-Palestine "conflict" (better described as a colonial occupation), Butler draws from Jewish resources (conceived broadly) to establish grounds for a non-antisemitic critique of Zionism, and an anti-Zionist Judaism. Readers looking for an introduction to and/or history of the occupation might prefer to start elsewhere; this text is excellent, but it's not a primer to the situation.

Butler begins the text working with Levinas, moves on to Benjamin, and continues
Excellent, excellent. Sharp, passionate. In short, one of Butler's most brilliant and essential works.

Five stars for idea; two stars for clarity for those of us outside the philosophy guild.
