Virtually all Jewish political leaders of the state of Israel agree that they would like their state to be both Jewish and Democratic. In fact, a significant majority of ordinary Jewish Israeli citizens would like their state to be Jewish and Democratic. In other words, Israeli leaders are promising their Jewish Israeli citizens, who sadly believe their leaders, that they will have the impossible become a reality. These are dreadful days for Zionism as it is being exposed for what it really is; a racist ideology based on fear and paranoia. The Zionist experiment in Palestine has failed, and it is only a matter of time before it collapses under its own undemocratic weight.
The following link connects to today’s editorial of the Israeli newspaper Haaretz under the title “Israel cannot be a democracy with two classes of citizens”:
Some are seeing the light, and as they get closer to it, they will see more light until they are fully exposed to the healthy sunlight of the post-Zionist era. Then, we will be able to claim a one democratic state for all Palestinians and all Israelis; Jews, Christians, Muslims, and others alike – all equal, safe, secure, respected, and free who feel at home in the holly land.
Hope is the stuff from which life is made!
