I recommend this article: "It's time to rethink Zionism," The desire for ethnic purity that drove out Palestinians and bars the way to democracy in Israel is the rotten fruit of an old debate Comments, by Daphna Baram. guardian.co.uk. Comment is free. February 17, 2009.
It's written by a Jewish woman, I believe, who was born in Jerusalem. It does an excellent job of showing the Big Lie that is the Zionist Project. The Zionist Project is the antithesis of the ostensible spirit of America. Why then is America financially and militarily supporting it more than it is supporting any other nation by far if not for greedy, hypocritical, imperial reasons?
It's long beyond the time for dumping the Zionist Project. In fact, that Project never should have begun.
