    "[You cant ignore] that the Jews have the right to their homeland. Why do you support a homeland for "Pals", who never had it, and you are agains a homeland for Jews?" I never said that. No one has any more or less of a 'right' to land than anyone else. All that matters is whether a group can keep control over it or not, and get everyone else to agree that its theirs. In a virtually lawless system, all this business about "rights" is subjective garbage. "Who`s racist? Hamastanis want to wipe the Jews out of their country. Isn`t it racism?" Yes, of course it is. You completely miss my argument. The point is, while you surely have your own justifications for standing by Zionism (at any cost, it seems) that does not contradict the fact that the policies Zionism requires are, quite plainly, racist. Palestinians are racist too. Everyone is. Its just that a committment to the idea of Zionism forces Jews to ACT on that racism, and in turn forces Muslims to act on THEir racism.
