    There is nothing wrong with Jews wanting a state. There is nothing necessarily wrong in saying that all Jews anywhere have the right to be Israeli citizens. The trouble is the way it is being applied today. Germans may have a right of return, but in Germany itself a German citiizen of say Serbian descent is no less a German than a German whose family have been in Germany for centuries. By contrast, in The Jewish State, Israeli Arabs are second class citizens, discriminated against in a number of subtle and not so subtle ways. Similarly, the attempt to extend the land of The Jewish State into the West Bank has created an apartheid system there where the local population are inconvenienced and discriminated against in favour of Jews-only settlements. If Zionists want the world ti view Zionism favourably, they have to demonstrate that this side of Zionism is not integral to it and can be separated from it. I see no sign of that happening at the moment, but would like to see it.
