    ...Firstly he's wrong because of the point below from Haifa University Lecturer. But secondly he's got it wrong when he says that "The origins of "Hatikva" are of course Zionist, but today, it is the national anthem of the State of Israel. "Hatikva" is not a "Zionist anthem": It is Israel's anthem - just like the British anthem, which was born out of the historical hegemony of the Anglican state-church, is today the anthem of Britain". But Israel still is a Zionist state based on the ideology of Political Zionism. If Israel were to abandon this ideology and allow Palestinian refugees to return and abandon land policies that discriminate against non-Jews, then he'd have a point. But until that happens, the anthem remains a Zionist anthem (whether or not that was Haifa University's objection).
