Yael Patir, Israel director of the left-leaning U.S. Jewish body, sat down with Haaretz to talk about Trump, the gap between U.S. and Israeli Jews, and the growing anger at the Israeli peace camp. Though she concedes boycott efforts by some on the left have a negative effect, she rejects calls to keep peace efforts local.01:12 01.05.16 | 2 comments
"The moment you remove zionism from Israel the Jewish people has no right to be there anymore hence no State of Israel or maybe just in name only to appease those politically" Hahaha! A perfect illustration of my point: a committed zionist can not distinguish his regime from his state. The moment the Israelis renounce zionism they...renounce zionism. That is all they do. The State of Israel still exists, and that State still has sovereignty over its land, and they still remain citizens of that Sovereign State of Israel. You are deluding yourself when you say otherwise. Now, those Israeli citizens may then ask themselves "Ahh, well, why am I bothering to still be here?", but that is a personal choice that they must make. It is of no concern to the State of Israel, any more than it is any concern to the USA if an American citizen decides to emmigrate to Israel.
