Gilad Atzmon understands that the "Jewish State" demands of us to stop being human beings if we want to be Jews. Thus, the "Jewish state" tramples on all that is valuable in Jewish history. Zionism tries to create a unity-identity between Jewishness, and the Land of Israel (= Palestine) and the Zionist State of Israel. Gilad eloquently expresses the view that is common to all anti-Zionists: "Asked, for example, if he misses Israel, he replies, "I don't miss the medina [the state], I miss the eretz [the land/country], and elaborates: "When I started missing the soil, the landscapes, the scents, I understood that what I actually miss is Palestine. Palestine is the land and Israel is the state." What we need to add is that the people of Israel and the people of Palestine can coexist when they accept each other as people with a common humanity. Zionism is the obstacle. It must be removed.
