Denocratic nationalism relies on romanticism. Between the world of liberal rights on the one hand and the world of ethnonationalism there is a middle road which is democratic nationalism Civic nationalists are nationalists, they heed history and are romantic,. AT THE SAME TIME THEY ARE NOT RACIST. They are open to immigration however, conditioned to the immigrants acceptance of the hegemonic national culture. Toni Judt was a nut that saw no future in romantic nationalism. Hiowever nowadays precisely because of globalization, romantic nationalists are gaining the upper hand again. They are actually telling immigrants and even national minorities: :" this country has a national culture which is not disputable. Take it or go away" Is israel one of them? In certain ways it is. Every zionist either left or right is a romantic nationalist. The differences between them has nothing to do with romantic nationalism. Right wingers are territorialists and left wingers can live with a small slot of territory in order to survive as a jewish state, with its romantic perspective of history and land. Both want a jewish majority and ioth praise jewish history and mythology. Both are not ready to negotiate with any minority the national "concept of the good" Are they out of mind.? Really not. They are indeed gaining the upper hand against lunatic liberal multiculturalists. Hopefully they will gain the upper hand against the also "lunatic" territorialist radical right.
