    There are good people in Israel... I know there are. But there are evil people too, the real Zionists. Zionism is a political ideology born of religous fanatisticm and is well cover a century old even being tossed around in the wake of the French Revolution and Napolen's emancipation of the Jews. But Zionism is not what brought the majority of Israel's Jews, the holocaust did. Since that time the Zionists have misled the Jews and abused the Arabs and along the way they have truly insulted the memory of the holocaust and continue to do so by invoking it and turning it into a billion dollar industry. I'm glad there are people in Israel who know what is going on and do not like it. Israel, the modern day Middle Eastern country (and not the biblical Israel) did not have the 'right' to exist and many argue that it still does not. But it does exisst and it isn't going away. If the Zionists truly want peace, they must stop this war with the Arab neighbors. They must stop de-stabalizing the Middle East and use their military and economy to aid and enhance the lives of everybody. Zionists have not given up on the idea of a greater Israel, we know they haven't. The fanatical Rabbis in the West Bank still beleive in it. The youth of Israel, oblivious to what is going on, are the most mis-guided. They have been taught to be racist and fanatical just as the Zionists already are, and although not all subscribe to this hate at least half of them do and these are the people who will make up the future of Israel. If Israeli's do not stop the Zionists, there will not be an Israel for their youth to grow up in. This will only end badly, fueling global antisemitism.
