Das System

OhioTo a foreigner, like myself, the US election system looks cockeyed.

The president is elected by an “electoral college”, which does not necessarily reflect the will of the people.

It easily leads to the election of a president who has attracted the votes of only a minority, depriving the majority of its democratic rights.

Antony Lerman- The Making and Unmaking of a ZionistA Personal and Political Journey, Pluto Press, London 2012, 228 pp. 18 British Pounds.

As a teenager he wanted to live on a kibbutz and be part of a generation who intended to build a socialist society in Israel. In 1970, with the age of 24, he went to Israel, became a citizen of the State of Israel, and served in the army. Already in 1972, he returned to the UK in order to study for a university degree. In 1979, he began working as a researcher, writer and editor for an institute dealing with issues affecting Jews worldwide.
