This is not to say that Israelis or Jews are any more or less racist than anyone else. Not at all. The issue is that the ideology of Zionism - with its central tenet of creating a Jewish, (now) democratic NATION-state in eretz israel - logically leads to racist policies when faced with the geographic and demographic realities of the region. The reason everyone else feels comfortable criticising Israel for its resulting racism is not because no one else is as racist as we are. Thats a load of crap. Its because most other nation states simply do not find themselves in a situation in which their own ethnic balance and geographical integrity are directly threatened. They live in a state of ethnic and geographical luxury, where equilibrium has already been reached, usually long ago. This may help assauge some of our consciences, but it doesn't change the reality: Zionism must implement inherently racist policies in order to maintain its goals in the region... cont.
