Has the Israel Lobby Gone Too Far? Yes, and Joshua Holland hasn't gone far enough.

Has the Israel Lobby Gone Too Far? | | AlterNet.

After reading that, consider the following:

The issue is with whether the Zionists ever had a right to horn their way into Palestine and then horn out Arabs.

The article was very careful not to open up the question of whether anti-Zionism is "anti-Jew" (as in lumping all Jews together as inherently evil and beyond redemption).

I am an anti-Zionist. I am not anti-Jew. I am not an ethnic bigot.

The issue is not over merely being opposed to Netanyahu and the Likudniks. It goes much deeper than that.

I like plenty of stuff Joshua Holland writes, but his article is a transparent attempt to be too subtle for most people to spot the clear Zionism-excusing. Zionism is inherently racist!

Before anyone makes the huge error of asking if families and tribes, etc., have a right to be nation-states, my view is that flesh and blood is spiritual. My family loves Jesus -- the real one, not the one John Hagee and the other Christian-Zionists (false Christians) hold up. It doesn't matter to me which of my brothers and sisters in Christ (the real ones) are black, white, or pink with purple polka dots. They are all human beings, and that's good enough for me.

As for nation-states, what is the basis for a person being designated "Jewish" such that "Israel" will welcome that one with open arms while seeking to drive the Palestinian Arabs from their ancestral homeland if they don't accept Jewish first class status to their second?

Come on Joshua Holland, you can do much better.
