Palestine (& the Part of it Called Israel)

"Zionist" is what people call themselves who believe that there should be a Jewish state in Palestine, and Zionism is the name of the movement that pursued the objective of creating a Jewish state as far back as 1897. The articles and links below explain how Zionist leaders, going back to World War II up through the present time, have attacked both ordinary non-Jews and ordinary Jews as well. Zionist leaders, for example, sabotaged rescue efforts of Jews during the Holocaust whenever the rescue did not entail sending Jews to Palestine. Zionist leaders are so contemptuous of the welfare of ordinary Jews that it is fair to accuse them of being anti-Semitic in the sense of anti-Jewish. Zionism is entirely an anti-working class ideology whose leaders have in the past and still today attack working people whether they are Jewish or not. To be for equality under the law, regardless of religious belief, means to be opposed to Zionism. This is why Jews as well as non-Jews are speaking out against Zionism.

Video: Ordinary Jewish Israelis in an Israeli store objecting to a shop-owner's refusal to sell to a non-Jew, in a "hidden camera" experiment. (This video was made by people who argue, without any basis in fact, that Jewish Israelis are more tolerant than non-Jewish Arabs; but regardless of their motives, the video is quite interesting.)

  • Interview with Ilan Pappé: “The Zionist goal from the very beginning was to have as much as Palestine as possible with as few Palestinians in it as possible.
  • The Jews of Iraq, by Naeim Giladi ["I write this article
    for the same reason I wrote my book: to tell the American people, and especially American Jews, that Jews from Islamic lands did not emigrate willingly to Israel; that, to force them to leave, Jews killed Jews; and that, to buy time to confiscate ever more Arab lands, Jews on numerous occasions rejected genuine peace initiatives from their Arab neighbors. I write about what the first prime minister of Israel called 'cruel Zionism.' I write about it because I was part of it.
  • Video of Zionist ethnic cleansing going on today in Palestine, carried out by the Israel government that once claimed to have "made the dessert bloom" but now uproots trees Palestinians depend on for their livelihood.
  • "WEXNER ANALYSIS: ISRAELI COMMUNICATION PRIORITIES 2003" This is a professional consulting firm's recommendation to the Israeli government about how to do propaganda in the United States. The only sense in which it reflects the views of New Democracy is that we agree that the Israeli government uses lies and deception to fool people into supporting it's ethnic cleansing practices.
