  • Pro-Israel Democrats concede 'human rights' issue is killing the brand
    • Dan Walsh

      Jews had been persecuted for centuries in majority-gentile countries. Even when not actively persecuting the Jews, the majority-gentile countries refused to give refuge to the Jews when they needed it. There would have been no Holocaust if majority-gentile countries would have allowed in Jewish refugees who were escaping from the Nazis. The idea of Zionism was that Jews would return to their homeland & have a majority-Jewish country because majority-gentile countries had failed to provide safety for the Jews.

      I never claimed that the Jews were the only people who had been persecuted & I favor statehood for the Roma, the Kurds, etc. if they want it.

      A “genetic connection” to the Middle (or Near) East does not obligate you to support Zionism.
      Some Jews believe that Jews are in the diaspora as punishment & it is up to God to decide when the punishment should end. However, there are others who say that God helps those who help themselves. According to the Bible, the Red Sea didn't split until a Jew jumped in.

      I consider myself a Zionist, but I don't think that all Jews should return to Israel. I don't believe in putting all the eggs into one basket.

      I hope you never need it, but I'm glad Israel is there in case you do.

  • The 'vertical apartheid' of the Israeli occupation

      "persecuted"
      not
      "prosecuted"

    • Keith

      Jewish State means a majority-Jewish state where all Jews are welcome - a refuge for persecuted Jews.

    • Mooser

      Saying that Jews should have a refuge does not imply that Jews were more persecuted than anyone else nor does it imply that only Jews should have a refuge.

    • eljay

      That Israel serves as a refuge for persecuted Jews doesn't mean that it's supremacist.
      There's nothing in this policy that implies that Jews are better than other people.

  • Zionism is apartheid, and worse
    • YoniFalic

      It wasn't that the Jews didn't like Europe.
      It was that they were being persecuted & murdered in Europe.
      Why should Jews have gone to the USA rather than to Palestine?

      Therefore, I favor automatic Israeli citizenship for any Jew or at least any Jew who is in danger.
