Israel’s leadership and the challenge of consensus

It’s getting unbearably hot in Israel. The aftermath of Friday’s terrorist attack, which bears all the hallmarks of being carried out by Jews, has led to anger, outrage and a sense that something needs to happen, fast. And rightly so — Israelis and Jews around the world are proud of Israel’s tolerant society and respect for all human lives, whether Jewish or not.

The problem is that many of the reactions from Israel’s leadership, however understandable, are lacking, and don’t present a real solution to the huge challenges Israel faces.
