Zionism, Jewishness and Israel

The following is the recording of a panel event that I took part in with Gilad Atzmon, Karl Sabbagh and Sameh A.Habeeb, discussing Zionism, Jewishness and Israel.

    People like Gilad Atzmon are the Zionists most powerful tool. His insistence on focusing on Jews and not Israel or Zionism only serves the Zionists to slander the Pro-Palestinian movement as anti-semitic.
    I wouldn’t be suprised if that former Israeli was actually a trojan horse working for the Mossad.

    Excellent, but I enjoyed the long version even better. (Link above in first comment.)

    I hope you will make a habit of broaching this subject, maybe in a larger venue where there can be more discussion in the Q&A section.

    Zionism was created by Theodor Herzel and others at the end of the 19th Century, and in that era it was commonplace to be colonialist, to be racist, to be super-nationalist, to adore the nation-state,so the idea of France for the French, Germany for the Germans, and then some state for the Jews. This all formed the basis for Zionism.
    Zionism and Judaism are contrary to each other. Because Judaism is universal and humane, and Zionism is exactly the opposite. It is very narrow, very nationalistic, racist, colonialist, and all this. There is no “National Judaism.” There is Zionism and there is Judaism, and they are completely different.
    Zionism has nothing to do with Judaism. Because Judaism – a Reform Movement- that is highly, highly ethical. And so, you cannot connect Zionism with “highly ethical.” You can only connect the words “aggressive,” “oppressive,” “stealing,” “robbing” with Zionism. But not “highly ethical.”

    “Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.” Menaheim Begin, 6th Prime Minister of Israel.

    Does this narrative sound familiar to you? Think Nazi.

    Judaism in its correct form is not a religion of hate any more than are Christianity, Islam or Buddhism. Zionism, however, is a secular, geopolitical system of hate…it is NOT a religion. It is a power cult (hiding behind the Jewish faith) of death, greed, lying, avarice and self-aggrandizement which views with contempt and derision all who do not subscribe or submit to its dogma.

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she retains the thought of a user in his/her mind that how a user can be aware of it. So that why this piece of writing Zionism, Jewishness and Israel – Alan Hart is great. Thanks!
