    for the law prohbiting boycotting products from the settlements, or for the rabbis who say don't rent to Arabs, or for the rabbis who get Arabs fired for flirting with Jews, or for the rabbis who would sacrifice individual rights for which Jews have fought for centuries on the alter of tribalism not to mention their own power. Israel was compelling as an act of self redemption of a persecuted people. As a home for chauvinists and religious bigots, it's leaves me and many others cold.

Can't wait for the orthodox rabbis to tell me that I'm not Jewish and that if I wanted to come to Israel, I need to convert, unless I can get birth certificates going back seven generations proving Jewish mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, and so on.

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.
