I am very impressed by the clear and plain logic of this article written by Samah Sabawi:
[Australia] Recently, Federal MP Andrew Robb on ABC radio attacked the Greens accusing them of being anti-Semitic. Does Robb believe that all Jews are Israelis?
Does he believe that Israel represents all Jews? Does he hold all Jews world wide collectively responsible for the actions of the state of Israel?
Is he telling us that Jews have a political monolithic view and follow one agenda? The idea of lumping all Jews in the world into one category is inherently a racist idea that must be seen for what it is.
The call to boycott Israel did not come about because Israel has a Jewish population but because the state of Israel practises discrimination and apartheid policies. When Palestinian civil society initiated the calls for BDS, it could not care less if the state was Jewish, Muslim or Hindu.
Unfortunately, our right-wing press is telling our politicians that BDS is part of a campaign to delegitimise Israel, a state they say is based on the foundation of liberal democracy.
But you cannot have a state that has two sets of laws — one for Jews and one for non-Jews — and call that a liberal democracy. They claim that BDS demonises Jews, but this is incorrect.
Boycotts in South Africa were never put in place to demonise white people but to bring about change to a racist regime. BDS aims to delegitimise Israeli policies of discrimination and oppression and not, as some have claimed, to destroy Israel. The boycotts against South Africa did not destroy that country; they only dismantled its system of apartheid.
The Israeli government recognises the power of the BDS movement. It sees it as a threat to its current policies of discrimination and apartheid. As a result, it is cracking down on internal dissent and is in the process of making it illegal for Israeli citizens to support BDS.
This is not how democracies work. This is hardly the blueprint on which Australia should model itself.
Beautifully stated that.
The young Jews in America are waking up to this too. They do not want to be duped fascist-minions for the racist Zionist Project. More power to them. They can research the real roots of Zionism. It's not what they've been misled to believe.
It started out as literally what the Zionists would call anti-Semitic. It started out as a racist ideology of a very confused man, Theodor Herzl. See his diary. It's very revealing about Zionism's roots.
The Zionists have built up Herzl and attempted to cover up his real thinking and his plan and theirs. Watch them attempt to twist his beliefs into something other than what they were. When that doesn't work, and it won't, watch them begin to distance themselves from him and to pretend that he was never "really" their leader and founder. That won't work either. Nothing they do will work. They've already lost. They lost before they started. Zionism was bankrupt from birth. You might say, it was stillborn — the spirit of death incarnate in the Zionists. Repent, Zionists! Repent, Richard Goldstone — Zionist liar, war-criminals and land-thieves excuser!
