"Zionism--liberal, light or conservative"--is not, never was, and can never exhibit any semblance of Judaism! Zionism, in word, is RACISM! And it is way past "high time" to begin talking about Racism and Zionism. It is also way past "high time" to talk about the suffering, death and destruction perpetrated in the name of "Zionism" in Palestine for the past 70 years. You can be assured that the vast majority of false charges of "anti-Semitism", especially on university campuses, emanate from Ziionists fighting to crush all attempts to win freedom, justice and equality for the Palestinians. Thank you, Peter Cohen.
FINALLY! AT LAST! Thank you, Dr. Yoav Litvin for your piece on "Zionism" and its curse on Judaism! Hopefully, "ethical Jews" will read your work and realize how the accursed brutal, racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing, land stealing, fascist, terrorist Zionist regime in Israel is the veritable antithesis of any semblance of Judaism in having created and maintained a human rights crisis in Palestine.
Also, kudos to Mondoweiss for having posted your piece, as well as its recent piece, "Hasbara Is Dead." Zionism has no place whatsoever in humanity; and let's make clear that accursed Zionism exacts the very same tactics on Palestinians as did the Nazis in Germany's 1930s and 1940s!
So much blather about "liberal Zionists"! As I pointed out to you in an earlier comment, the term "liberal Zionist" quickly brings to the mind of this "deep south Louisiana native the term "liberal Klansman." Again, I would urge you and Mondoweiss to refrain from referring to "liberal Zionists" who, in their support of Zionist Israel's theocracy, only continue to serve the "interests" of the brutal, racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing, land stealing, fascist, terrorist Zionist regime in Israel. My conviction, in light of the continuing persecution, deaths and suffering in Palestine at the hands of Zionists: residents and supporters of Zionist Israel's theocracy are either Zionists, or they are Jews who practice Judaism, or they are Palestinians, victims of Zionism for the past sixty years! I see nothing Jewish in "Zionism"--"liberal" or whatever! Do you?
Oh please, jon s: is your transparency showing? Anyone who knows the fundamental history of the brutal, racist, genocidal, ethnic cleansing, land stealing, fascist, terrorist Zionist regime in Palestine refuses to accept your claim, the repetitive accusation of Zionists, that Hamas is to blame for it all. It was the Zionist regime itself in Palestine that created Hamas as it subverted and caused a split in Fatah to create Hamas. So, please, jon s, give your hasbara a rest. Thank you.
