How did we get here?

What happened to June 24 by Saul Singer

Misreading the map by Herb keinon

Washington's Betrayal by Caroline Glick

The above from JPOST are a triple must-read, in conjunction. Togather, they deal with the question: What caused the terrible collapse in moral uprightness since June 24? That such a collapse did occcur is demonstrated by Singer. Glick and keinon answer quite differently the question of how this happened . For Glick it is a clear-cut (and not the first) case of betrayal. For keinon it is in great part caused by the ineptitude of Israel's diplomacy on the approach of the calamity. Read this trilogy if you are trying to clarify for yourself your own answer to this to-be-or-not-to-be question .
