Uniqueness = superiority?If there is still any doubt, that Foxman’s cocnept of Jewish uniqueness implies Jewish/Israeli superiority, here is a quote by David Ben Gurion: My cocnept of the messianic ideal and vision is not a metaphysical one but a socio-cultural-moral one I believe in our moral and intellectual superiority, in our capacity to serve as a model for the redemption of the human race. The intellectual superiority’ of the Jewish people is a matter of empirical evidence or not. I don’t doubt it. But the moral superiority’? The above quote, including , is from Arthur Hertzberg and Aron Hirt-Manheimer, Jews The Essence and Character of a People’, HarperCollins 1998, page 17 Note, the authors of the book quote Ben Gurion in the affirmative, they don’t criticise his statement. They write, He [Ben Gurion] was leading his people, through Zionism, to be a moral example for all of humanity , same page.
