Jeff Goldberg served in the IDF. Tony Judt tried a kibbutz. So tell me what experience Peter Beinart has of Israel? I see an unbroken trail from private school to Yale to Oxford to TNR. Did he join a Zionist youth movement in school? Volunteer on a kibbutz or army base? Do a semester abroad at an Israeli university? Commit first, opine later—that confers standing. As far as I can tell, Beinart has none.
