How does the left-wing justifies Jews living in Israel at all? We never heard any morally valid justification for this from the left. Therefore, the left is morally bankrupt. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    If we throw history, then Jews are occupiers everywhere in Israel - inside or outside the green line. The left-wing takes a future peace as justification for Jews to live in Israel. But this is an utterly aggressive morality "I took half your home, but I agree to split it". No matter how you look at it, the vast majority of Palestinians want Jews out of here. So the Israeli left has not found any valid reason for its own existence. The only viable justification is history. But for those ashamed of their Jewish origins this is an unspeakable argument. So the ones who are really occupiers - in their own eyes - are the Israeli left people. How fortunate settlers scapegoats exist! They may be used to let everybody forget the moral bankruptcy of the left.
