David Ben-Gurion declaring Israel’s independence beneath a large portrait of Theodor Herzl, founder of modern Zionism - 14 May 1948
As an ethnic jew born in America, I found your post on the term Zionism very interesting. What do you think of Vanessa Redgrave calling Zionists Hoodlums? She refuses to acknowledge that she is antisemitic because she actively protests antisemitism that is unrelated to Israel and doesn't treat antisemitism as a threat that 'no longer exists'. Do you think her use of the term Zionism is justifiable? Thanks so much, I must admit I am not very educated on the Israel-Palestine conflict.
