Some ‘Zionists’ Have A Perverse Sense of Love


Pages: 1 2

Its summer time – primetime for Israel lovers to visit the country, tour, and enjoy all that Israel, the modern day miracle, has to offer. People relax on the beach, pray, sightsee – yet how come we never hear a nice word from “Zionists” like Peter Beinart or the New Israel Fund on things like this? They never ever have a positive word to say about Israel. These people get so much attention because they are Jewish and claim to be pro-Israel, but their whole purpose as Jews seems to be to hurt Israel, and their “support” only damages Israel.

The New Israel Fund, Beinart, all these people – do they donate to museums or (Jewish) cultural centers, enjoy the beaches of Tel Aviv, or the beauty of a Kabbalat Shabbat ceremony? If they do, one certainly never hears about it – we hear often about this obsession of “racism” towards Africans, “oppression” of the Palestinians, and problems of the Charedim with the less religious. Everyone – 100 percent of the Jewish people — wants peace, and no one claims the country is perfect, and certainly there are negative incidents in Israel, but why do they as “Zionists” or “Israel supporters” constantly harp on the negative? Any belief in criticizing your loved ones privately?

A simple review, preformed recently, of the front page of Beinart’s blog, “Open Zion,” sees the following articles on the home page: “Exploiting Jews from Arab Countries,” “Why Bibi Is wrong,” and “Prejudice in Israel,” and not one article remotely supportive of Israel. No horror expressed about Arab attacks on Jews, the mass killings in Syria, or a random story about some miracle in the desert in the start-up nation.

Only a few years ago, these same “Zionists” wanted to return the Golan to Syria.  Today, we see the Syrian government slaughtering thousands of their own people, and the world is standing by.  Can there be any doubt what they would do to the Jews? These liberal Jews claim to be all about acceptance and democracy and openness – As the overwhelming huge majority of Israelis chose Netanyahu, why can’t they accept this viewpoint? Is their love for Israel an abstract concept or do these “Zionists” believe that their own beliefs are more important than the vast majority of Israelis?

One hears constant criticism from these quarters about the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), and Jewish strength, but never words of praise. Do they believe Israel should ever fight back? When is it okay to fight back? Why do they never (ever) praise the Jewish army – say for acceptance of women? Or its great rehabilitation programs? Anything? They constantly criticize so called Jewish “racists,” and the handful of “price-tag” activists – and refuse to acknowledge that Islam is anything but a religion of peace.

Perhaps the Zionism they support is a fantasy land where people sit around and sing “Kumbaya.”

  • Nakba1948

    "Time for the so-called supporters of the Jewish State to love another country…" How about the so-called supporters of America actually put America first for one and stop selling out its future to the Zionist Apartheid Entity? Doctor heal thyself.

      Aparthied is a lie. there is no apartheid (or if there is, Isreal is terrible at it!) There are Arab Muslims with equal rights in Isreal, and in fact more rights than in Muslim nations!

      the Aparthied is in the Arab states, which you hypocritically ignore. The security measures such as the wall and checkpoints are only because of the terrorism, genocidal wars of aggression (48,67, etc.) against the Jewish state. HAMAS still preaches genocidal hatred to children against Jews, but what do you spend your time criticizing? The one democracy in the middle east!

      It must be terrible to be so full of hate.

      • Looking4Sanity

        What really galls him is the fact that he joined the losing team. The hate is a natural result of putting your faith in a POS "prophet" who is proven wrong on an almost daily basis.

    Let this be a lesson to all. Everyone who professes to be your friend also has the ability to lie. You will know a tree by the fruit it bears.

    I believe that Nakba1948 is full of baloney. Why else would he say such utter nonsense?

    "100 percent of the Jewish people — wants peace, and no one claims the country is perfect"

    -heheh. Is this writer for real? It would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

    "Is their love for Israel an abstract concept or do these “Zionists” believe that their own beliefs are more important than the vast majority of Israelis?"

    I heard Beinart speak at a DC synagogue about two years ago. Though he claims to belong to a traditional synagogue, and he says his son has an Israeli flag in his bedroom, he made clear his sympathies lie with only a certain kind of Zionism – one like that espoused by Buber and Magnes. (He's elsewhere expressed admiration for Stephen Wise.)

    But that kind of bi-national "let's all get along" Zionism won over few beyond a limited circle in the 1940s. It won no support from Palestine's Arab community either. And after more than 60 years of real world experience, such a version of Zionism is deemed as fantasy by most. One might suspect that one reason Beinart so criticizes Israel is because they don't accept his model. The same might be true for Tom Friedman who apparently can't forgive Israel for not taking up "his" peace plan (which some call the Saudi Peace Plan).

  • The fact is,

    Thomas Friedman wants to see the Jewish state and the Jewish people totally obliterated.

    Any expression of care or love for Israel ever coming out of his filthy mouth would be a lie.
