American Zionism is crumbling before our eyes. 500 alums of US youth Zionist group Habonim Dror call on leaders to cut ties with Israel over annexation. Kibosh on the kibbutz! But Habonim leaders are rejecting the advice, just as J Street leaders dismissed their youth branch alumni’s demands.

Ilhan Omar get smeared for offering the same insight?
