this is great news. when the world becomes anti-Zionist and takes up arms against Israel, and a second wave of pogroms across the world takes place and millions of Jews are once again slaughtered, Mondoweiss will say they are sorry. if those who write for it are still alive.
“antiZionism” was a reasonable (in fact, correct) position prior to 1948. after that, it has become another way of saying “kill the Jews.” I know, I’m exaggerating, because there is absolutely no evidence of any desire to kill Jews in the world anymore.
Mondoweiss is a hate site, and JVP is a hate group, and the comments above only demonstrate that.
The world is fucked. We can’t put the Pakistanis back in Mumbai or the Hindis back in Islamabad. and trying to put the Palestinians back in the tiny sliver of trans-Jordan now called Israel is no more feasible. and where do you think the Jews in Israel–or whatever you want to call them, as I don’t find much to identify with in them–where do you think they’ll go? Or do you think a second Nakba in reverse will be cool because the first one was so bad?
The world is fucked. rather than feeding into the hate that is endemic to both sides in this case–and yes, this is one case, kind of like India/Pakistan, where both sides are full to the brim with hate–we need to figure out a way to de-escalate. Claiming that “anti-Zionism” names a position that could possibly result in anything less than mass bloodshed, not just in “Israel” but around the world–is ludicrous.
As Jew who does not live in Israel or identify with its political positions, it is 100% clear to me that if and when “anti-Zionists” get their way, the world-wide pogrom that will take place will not give a single hoot about the fine-grained distinction Mondoweiss makes between the Jews who support and live in Israel and those who don’t. We’ll all get the yellow stars. and the KKK and the alt-right and the Golden Dawn & on and & on will come for all of us. which it is pretty clear that at least half the commentators and contributors on this site would welcome.
