good article, thanks.
Where I live, every time a high school social studies teacher shows something like “People and the Land”, they get reprimanded and told never to do that again. Everyone knows why and is annoyed by it. You would think that if zionists felt the need for their own space on public campuses, there would at least be some uncensored truth allowed to justify their “fears”. I’ll bet there isn’t any at Evanston Township.
I do love Jewish music and food, and see nothing wrong with that on campus, but “Israeli” food is at the very least multi-cultural and should be accompanied by Palestinian culture at the same time. If Israelis want to take credit for Judaism’s historic influences, they should include Christianity and Islam, creationism, patriarchal monotheism, homophobia, etc., and they should be forced to admit to their audience that the modern “Jewish” state of Israel requires intolerance of their sectarian offshoots. That is zionism.
Also, zionists may claim to feel safe in their bubble of fairy tales, but if they convince the US to expand its wars to Iran and Russia, none of us will be safe.
