    ...that there are an increasing number of people who feel that the Jews shouldn't have the right to self-determination in Israel -- anywhere in Israel. They believe that a Jewish state is by definition racist. A lot of people try to claim that any Jew who questions this thinking is sanctioning the occupation. The idea is to shut up anyone who believes in the right to Jewish self-determination -- even in non-occupied areas. My feeling is that both Jews and Palestinians deserve the right to self-determination, and that's why we need two states. Not sure why so many people can't get that - or perhaps they do and are just anti-any form of Zionism (i.e., Jewish self-determination in Israel).
