"There Is No Israel For Me"

That's the "money" line in the new Houellebecq novel. It is spoken by a non-Jewish Frenchman to his Jewish girlfriend who has decided to run off to Israel because life in France has become intolerable. As a non-Jew, he doesn't have that option, and for him there is no escape. The statement underscores "The Existential Necessity of Zionism After Paris."
