Early today, I posted a reply to someone who suggested that a leftist could not be a Zionist. I pointed out that the founders of Zionism in Palestine WERE leftists. That Leftist Zionists FOUNDED Israel, and that the right wing Zionists (Revisionists) in fact made the founding of Israel much more difficult. What, exactly, was so objectionable that it had to be censored? Are we to state that the "Labor Zionists" of the early to mid-20th century were "right wing"? Must we insist that Kibbutzes were founded as centers of freemarket capitalism unfettered by goals of a better society? Why was a degree of admission of Israel's socialist past unacceptable? Heck, I'm a capitalist, but that doesn't mean I have to censor history.
