Breivik’s exclusivist nationalism reminds Sullivan of Zionism

on 15 Comments

Sullivan makes the analogy to ultra-Zionist settlers, but how long before he is talking about Zionist zealots in the U.S.? (At Foreign Policy today there is a long discussion cobylined Shmuel Rosner, now of the Jewish People Planning Institute, about demographics and emigration in Israel, describing Israel as the Jewish homeland and refuge to oppressed peoples from around the world, melting pot, etc, in exalted terms (invoking aliyah, or the idea that in moving to Israel, Jews go higher), without any reference to the expulsions that established the Jewish majority and that continue today in East Jerusalem. These ideas are actually similar to Breivik’s ideal for Norway; though of course no massacre is endorsed in the Foreign Policy piece.)
