Proud zionist: I used the term "naqba" as the palestinians use it not as my own definition. From their perspective the loss and razing of 418 villages is a catastrophe. As for Dershewitz the less said the better. His defense of torture and his defamation of faculty at Columbia University testify to his integrity and legal objectivity. I criticise Israel because it is Israel that concerns me. I know you find that impossibile to believe but it does, more than any other country and I hold it to account. I will not defend her indefensible actions simply because I am a Jew and therefore feel that Israel must be defended in all and every circumstance. And you are right, proud zionist, I do not find one, not a single aspect of this odious occupation that is praiseworthy or should not be condemned. Not one. For me, as a Jew, and I recognize how deeply unpopular this is and how much spewing of animus is directed toward me, but I along with a growing number of Israelis feel that zionism is not the panacea of all our problems. It has made more problems than it has solved and that is because of its very nature.
