The truth, at least as it relates to the modern State of Israel, too often is "repulsive." And that's probably the nicest possible thing you can say about it in English. Judaism and Zionism have the same fundamental problem as any other widespread religion (including Christianity, Islam and Hinduism, to cite the obvious): extremists interpret sections of the letter their faith's teachings, out of context and with no regard for the intended *spirit* of the teachings, to justify their pre-existing hatred, fear and power-seeking. Judaism and Zionism have turned a blind eye to this longer than most because yes, for centuries Jews WERE persecuted, and Zionism arose as a response to that. But now, they are not on the bottom of the heap, but the top... and there needs to be an efficient, public housecleaning of those who've chosen not to read the memo.
