    If you are so critical of the Jewish state, its democracy, and its nationalism, why aren't you as reproachful of the far more violent and dangerous nationalist NON-democracies in the rest of the Middle East? I fail to see how people like Gamel Abdel Nasser, Ayatollah Khomeini, and Mahmoud Ahmedinajad can be considered valiant in their nationalistic efforts where as David Ben-Gurion, Yitzchak Rabin, and Golda Meir are not. Both societies have developed and exhibited a form of nationalism, Zionism prompted by pogroms and the Holocaust, and Arab nationalism prompted by the mishaps of colonialism. Ultimately, though, Zionism has proved to be a much more inclusive, progressive, and idealized in the ultimate goal of peace. So, if you still wish, continue on your crusade to end nationalism. But don't stop with Zionism. TAKE ON THE REST OF THE MUSLIM WORLD!!! Oh, but wait, you probably have a double standard when it comes Egypt, Iran, and Libya.
