    The history of Zionism is an absolutely essential concept to comprehend if one is to understand the history of Israel. The problem that ideologues pose is that to them History is something to be manipulated to prove their ideology. They could care less about what actually happened, and only care for the propaganda effects. One of histories most despicable and depraved ideologues described his view of propaganda in two succinct quotes. "All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach." "By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise. e." - Adolf Hitler It is, many would say, a cheap shot to quote Hitler. The censor will probably say that to compare Hitler to anyone is wrong. The truth is that Hitler did not invent the techniques he used, but was often inclined to state them with contempt for those who allowed him to rule. For example: "Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it." "What good fortune for governments that the people do not think." - Adolf Hitler Hitler did not invent the art, nor is everyone who practices his well stated techniques another Hitler. Still, we must recognize that another of his dictums applies to this article. "As soon as by one's own propaganda even a glimpse of right on the other side is admitted, the cause for doubting one's own right is laid." - Adolf Hitler Do birds of a feather flock together, or do those with similar goals adopt similar tactics?

Why this liberal Zionist now supports BDS

Calling the occupation 'unsustainable' is how liberal Zionists ease their conscience and excuse their timidity, by telling themselves it can’t last. But it will last – unless we start acting more like radicals.
