“A Scion of Zionist Aristocracy Wants to Quit the Jewish People. Will Israel Let Him?” – by Ravit Hecht, Haaretz

“‘Avrum,’ as he’s widely known, is out to discard one title: his designation as a Jew according to the population registry of the Interior Ministry. In an affidavit he will submit to the Jerusalem District Court, Burg writes that he no longer considers himself as belonging to the Jewish nationality. He adds that his conscience does not allow him to be classified as a member of that nation, because it implies ‘belonging to the group of the masters.’ In simple, clear words, he asserts, ‘I can no longer feel identification with this collective.’

This extraordinary act, which seems light-years away from most of Burg’s well-known public activity, comes in the wake of the enactment in 2018 of the Basic Law: Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People.”
