    Zionism set out to establish a national homeland and safe haven for the Jewish people. Bit of a shame it had to establish it on top of the Arab residents of Palestine, but anyway, it achieved in 1948, the huge achievement of re-stablishing a state that disappeared 2,000 years ago. If I was Jewish, I would be very proud of that. But what should have happened after 1948 is that Zionism should have basically finished. Israel should have become a normal state, with a Jewish flavour, but one that values all its citizens equally. One that Jews, but also others, could immigrate into and become full members of its society. Instead Zionism has become a nationalist ideology based on race and religion which isn't really compatible with 21st century western standards, an ideology capable of keeping an entire people, the Pals, captive, so that Jews-only settlements can steal their land.

Senator Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders is smart to keep his mouth shut about Israel

The U.S. presidential candidate has the Democratic progressive vote in his pocket and is wise not to reveal that, on the Middle East, he stands more to the right than his fans would like him to.
