For today, I'm not going to go through the whole article but I did want to start with this sentence:
"That's because while Israel purports to be the Jewish State, it is in fact only the Zionist state. "This is something that HP talkbackers actually say quite often, so it is hardly the first time I have seen it. But I want you to go back, look at that line and really study it hard. When you finish, you will realize that it. makes. no. sense. at all!
According to Moor Israel claims to be a Jewish state, but really isn't. Okay fine, but does he have any evidence to indicate that it is not a state for the Jews? No, he doesn't. What he does say is: "Israel does not represent the Jewish people," but Israel has never (to my knowledge) claimed to represent the Jewish people. In fact in my experience most of Israel's critics complain about Israel being too Jewish, not "too Zionist," pointing to instances like discrimination on buses and restrictive marriage laws. I guess nothing would satisfy them. What a surprise.
But anyway, I want to go back to the term "the Zionist state" as that is another buzzword that gets thrown around like candy by the AZs but the more you stop and think about it the less sense that it makes. Zionists are people who believe Jews should have a homeland, regardless of race religion or creed. Moor admits this much in his article. Israel is not a state for "Zionists" but any measure of the term. No matter how much a Christian might believe Jews should have their own state, he still has to apply for Israeli citizenship the same as anyone else. I'm sure Mr. Moor would shout that Israel was being discriminatory if one were to ask him.
As usual, the AZs are trying to have it both ways: They want to criticize Israel for being "too Jewish" but at the same time claim that it isn't Jewish at all, only "Zionist." But like I said before, this contradiction only works when both the speaker and his audience does not fully understand what the terms "Zionist" and "Zionism" means. It's very informative indeed that the Huffington Post chose Mr. Moor to be the one to educate us on what Zionism is. It's like Rush Limbaugh talking about liberalism.
