I've sent this question in about the initial torture story. It is all stomach-turning. I have read accounts (in serious books and articles dating back to the 1960s and 1970s)of Israeli torturers inserting sharp needle-like objects down Palestinian men's penises. Is Zionism worth it to cause such hatred and torture and occupation and displacement of hundreds of thousands to a people, the Arab Palestinians, who were just living peacefully in their homes and on their farms when the invasion -- i.e., "liberate the soil eternally" (cf. Jewish National Fund article and Israel Harel and Meron Benvenisti) -- took place. Has Zionism been worth all this expulsion and conflict and occupation and killing and torture-- on both sides? It seems doubtful. Isn't it time for a one-state democracy and return of the refugees and end of the conflict-- end of Shin Bet torture, occupation, Islamism's extremist replies, all this hell and nightmare?
