zionist terror

anonymous asked:

Do liberals tend to dislike zionists? I'm a bit confused because I joined a liberal FB page and it said zionists would be banned. I ended up leaving obviously.

Hi there,

That’s an excellent question.   Unfortenetely there are many ignorant people in the world who view the Israel-Palestinian Conflict from a very skewed perspective.  Where on the far-right, we face anti-semitism on the far left Jews often face anti-semetism conceled within a mask of anti-Zionism.  

Many of these people are not aware that a wide spectrum of political beleif exists in Israel and in the Jewish community.   Intensified by racist propaganda from the Zionist/Israeli-right and anti-Israel/BDS propaganda from the far-right Muslim world, many folks on the left often do not see the complicated nature of the Conflict.  For example, many “anti-Israel” groups online typically post photos of children in Syria and argue that they were taken in Gaza.  They see stories posted by far-right groups (on both sides of the Conflict) and see them as fact.

I am a very proud Zionist and a liberal person.  One of my major goals (and hopefully many of your goals) is to stamp at the notion that Zionists can only be extremely right wing.  I am very open in social circles and online that I am a Zionist, hope and pray for peace, condemn the Occupation AND terror aimed at Israel from Palestinians and other groups, and I hope and pray for a viable and economically stable Palestinian state that recognizes the State of Israel (and visa-versa). 

I hope that this answers your question!


“The Arabs violently oppose the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine because they believe that Palestine is an integral part of the Arab world. In addition, they fear that the Jews will consolidate their position through unlimited immigration and that they will attempt to expand until they become a threat to the newly won independence of each of the other Arab countries. They believe that not only politically, but also culturally the Jewish state threatens the continued development of the Islamic-Arab civilization. For these reasons, the Arab governments will not consider any compromise, and they categorically reject any scheme which would set up a Jewish state in Palestine.”

things I don’t like about this dyke march stuff:

people making comments about how dyke march would be exterminated by palestinians, muslims, gaza, “the terrorists”, sand [n-slur here], etc

such as…

@daddylawbucks: “those Chicago Dykes should travel to GAZA and see how well their cuddly Palestinian actually treat them…..”

like here’s a fucking dude using dyke as a pejorative and saying palestinians are murderous and violent?? 

don’t fucking let that shit slide!! people being antisemitic is not an excuse to be racist and lesbo/homophobic???? don’t let that shit slide!!

aaand there’s all kinds of denial and imperialist bullshit going on in conjunction with this and like dyke march people bringing it up to defend what they did is completely unacceptable, but so is trying to fucking justify the “””war on terror”””

the “zionist” in question even supports a two-state solution and was still a qwoc lol I have a high doubt she’d be thrilled to see these kinds of remarks from some capitalist porn blogger fucking “”defending”” her

[edit] also there are jewish people who support dyke march and they’re not suddenly gentile just for it, I am seeing a lot of that too and it needs to fucking stop


call me zionist or zionazi or whatever the hell you want to call me. but don’t hide your antisemitic self. jewish people are being murdered every single day in israel and the world stand silent. and it will all come back to you.

Hello there! Could you explain why the Zionists bombed the King David Hotel in 1946, as well as killing Swedish diplomat Count Folke Bernadotte (who rescued 31,000 people from Nazi concentration camps, BY THE WAY) in 1948 for the horrendous claim of (gasp) asking Israel to give the Palestinian refugees the right of return? Are these acts justifiable in your eyes? I mean; we already know you think ethnic cleansing and stealing land is, but are these?

Jewish terrorists bombed the hotel because they wanted to kill a lot of their enemies (the British occupation government) and spread lots of fear and shock very quickly. That’s what all terrorists do; this is what it looks like when Jews do it. I’m sure just down the road there was a guy smacking his wife and in this particular case it was a Jew doing it, and in the next town over there was a pickpocket who was Jewish too. In all cases, such Jewish crimes could have surely been prevented by the method preferred by the Palestinian Arab leadership and by you, which was to exterminate the Jewish people off the face of the earth.

Fuck your “what about black-on-black crime?!?” bullshit. Jews are allowed to live; that means some of us will end up doing bad things. You are not entitled to demand virtue from us as the price for our lives. We are not YOUR Chosen People.

As Ze'ev Jabotinsky wrote in 1911: “We do not have to apologize for anything. We are a people as all other peoples; we do not have any intentions to be better than the rest. As one of the first conditions for equality we demand the right to have our own villains, exactly as other people have them. We do not have to account to anybody, we are not to sit for anybody’s examination and nobody is old enough to call on us to answer. We came before them and will leave after them. We are what we are, we are good for ourselves, we will not change, nor do we want to.”

And speaking of how much you fully believe Jews must only ever be treated as the worthless serfs groveling to Christian and Muslim master classes: Bernadotte wasn’t killed because of ANY amount of Palestinian refugees. He was killed (by terrorists) because he was trying to permanently end Jewish immigration to Israel.

Though he did, in his defense, have at least one idea worth listening to:


“The Palestinian Arabs had at present no will of their own. Neither have they ever developed any specifically Palestinian nationalism. The demand for a separate Arab state in Palestine is consequently relatively weak. It would seem as though in existing circumstances most of the Palestinian Arabs would be quite content to be incorporated in Transjordan.”

The firebombing of the Dawabsha family’s home in the occupied West Bank that killed 18-month-old Ali Saad sparked an international outcry over Israel’s failure to curb violence by hardline Jewish settlers.

The term “Zionism” is not an epithet. Nor is anti-Zionism a mask for social hatred of Jews. The Exodus mythology justifying Israel’s foundation is unraveling & the dystopic vision of Zionism stands exposed by the barbarous excesses of Israeli ethnic cleansing in Gaza. There is no Biblical or historic claim to Palestine.

The Pentagon can arm Israel to the teeth with the latest high-power armaments, drone bombers, F-35 stealth fighters, & Iron Domes but it cannot give Israel justification for colonialism, for the expropriation & ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. Israeli apartheid has no real theoretical defense. That’s why their only defense is to demonize Hamas & try to identify anti-Zionism with social hatred of Jews. But Zionism’s demise is written in its mission.

Zionism is a right-wing ideology originating in the late 19th century in response to persecution & pogroms against Jews in Europe. It emerged in an era when European colonialism in Asia, Africa, the Americas, & Pacific was starting to be addressed by progressive political forces. Dividing up the world & competing for plunder was a fundamental conflict between nations which led to the first World War. The socialists of the day believed racism & colonialism should be challenged & historically vanquished or it could destroy humanity.

Zionist ideologues, based on their privileged class, were hobbled in their vision of freedom from persecution by a belief in the superiority of Jews & a rejection of any kind of assimilation like modern nation-states entail. Thus Zionism in the historic contest between colonialism & social freedom for all, chose to side with colonialism, adopted its methods & perspectives to set up a Jewish-only state, & rejected the struggle against racism & colonialism.

The Jewish holocaust of WWII was part of European colonialism. What distinguished it was not the extreme barbarism against Jews. Europe & the US were long-involved in unimaginable crimes against Indigenes & black & brown-skinned peoples. Even the massive Atlantic slave trade is only a part of that horrific history. What distinguished the holocaust was that barbaric practices honed against colonized peoples were now being turned on European peoples in the metropolitan center.

There has always been strong objection by progressive Jews to the right-wing proposals of Zionists. Some of the most powerful writings & critiques are by Jews who detested the stinking elitism, wanted to ally the struggle against antisemitism to the struggle against racism & colonialism, & considered it treachery to ally with the forces of reaction. Many of them died in the holocaust while Zionists exploited it to peddle their nefarious scheme. What had been an ideology without a hope now became a social movement.

After 67 years of Zionist terrorism & colonial expropriation, of watching the US & European powers abet Zionists in setting up a country on their lands, Palestinians are finally marshaling the forces of justice & human rights around the world to stand with them. As Palestinian solidarity & the cultural & economic boycott (BDS) of Israel grows, Zionists will become more rabid. An Israeli law firm just won damages in a US federal court against the PLO & Palestinian Authority for fomenting terrorism. They have already begun to go after BDS groups as hate groups. Palestinians are up against the most powerful & reactionary forces in the world. They have not been daunted for 67 years by the odds against them. Nor should we be.

Build the economic & cultural boycott of Israel! Demand “No aid of any kind to Israel!”
