If there is one thing that anti-Zionists are good at, it's making excuses for why they hate Israel. In any conversation they leap and skip from topic to topic. Now that the Netanyahu government is in power, they tell us that they "like Israel, but don't like it's government." As long as Israel doesn't have peace with the Palestinians, they tell us that they "like Israel, but don't like it's policies in the West Bank." All fair enough. But here's the problem: When the conversation goes on long enough, eventually it all goes back to the events of 1948 and the Palestinians leaving their homes, which in turn leads to attacks on Israel's very existence. Every anti-Zionist gets there sooner or later, and some are more blatant than others:
"Israel is built on the persecution of the Palestinians and the theft of their land."
"The author fails to distinguish between a "democratic state" and a colonial occupier with a thirst for land and a willingness to kill for it."
"The problem is not Hamas, as they are the result of a terror campaign launched by Israelis in 1948 to make the native Palestinians flee their villages."
And so forth. But you can look through our user profiles and see that they all get there eventually.
So why do I bring this up? Because even if Israel voted in Kadima and settled a two-state solution with the Palestinians, it would still not be enough to satisfy the anti-Zionists. Because Israel would still exist on so-called "Palestinian land," which was still "stolen" from the Palestinians. Even if the Palestinians are ready to move on and live in peace and harmony with Israel, the anti-Zionists aren't going to end their armchair "resistance" until Israel gets everything that's coming to it. Dayenu! It would be one thing if they came right out and said it, but they do not. I would be much more impressed if they didn't pretend only to be displeased with Netanyahu, or the settlements, or the occupation. If you won't be satisfied with anything less than Israel being destroyed, at least have the guts to come right out and say it. That way we will stop trying to please you.
