New Democracy's Core Beliefs
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.

THE TWO FUNDAMENTAL REASONS THAT ZIONISTS GIVE IN DEFENSE OF ISRAEL REMOVING MOST NON-JEWS FROM ISRAEL AND REFUSING TO LET THEM (THE PALESTINIAN REFUGEES) RETURN ARE: #1) THAT GOD GAVE THE LAND TO THE JEWS AND #2) THAT JEWS CANNOT LIVE SAFELY IN THE WORLD UNLESS THERE IS A JEWISH STATE WITH A LARGE MAJORITY JEWISH POPULATION ACHIEVED AND GUARANTEED BY WHATEVER IS NECESSARY, EVEN IF IT REQUIRES (AS IT DOES) VIOLENT ETHNIC CLEANSING OF NON-JEWS. TO SEE THAT #1 IS FALSE, GO HERE; TO SEE THAT #2 IS FALSE, GO HERE. ZIONIST LEADERS HAVE NOTHING BUT CONTEMPT FOR ORDINARY JEWS AND HAVE BETRAYED THEM HORRIBLY SINCE THE DAYS OF THE HOLOCAUST; TO SEE THIS GO HERE.

IS IT ANY WONDER THAT NON-JEWS IN PALESTINE ARE ANGRY AT HOW ZIONIST JEWS SUCH AS THE SEPHARDI CHIEF RABBI TREATS THEM?
Sephardi chief rabbi says non-Jews forbidden from living in the Land of Israel
Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef argues that Jewish law prohibits non-Jews from living in Israel unless they have accepted Noachide laws, adding that some non-Jews live in Israel to serve the Jewish population.
By Haaretz | Mar. 28, 2016 | 3:51 AM | 26
Sephardi Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef said Saturday night that many non-Jews should be forbidden from living in the Land of Israel according to Jewish law.
In a recording of Yosef’s weekly Saturday night lecture obtained by Channel 10, the rabbi can be heard saying, “According to Jewish law, it’s forbidden for a non-Jew to live in the Land of Israel – unless he has accepted the seven Noachide laws.”
“If he’s not willing to accept one of them, [which is] not to commit suicide, if he’s not willing to accept this, you send him to Saudi Arabia,” Yosef continued, apparently referring to suicide attackers.
The seven Noachide laws include prohibitions on idolatry, blasphemy, murder, illicit sexual relations, stealing and eating the limb of a living animal, plus a positive commandment to establish court systems.
“If our hands were strong, if we had governing power, then non-Jews shouldn’t live in the Land of Israel,” Yosef added. “But our hands aren’t strong. We’re awaiting our righteous Messiah, who will be the true and complete redemption, and then they’ll do this.”
The reason some non-Jews are allowed to live in Israel, Yosef continued, is to serve the Jewish population. “Who will be the servers? Who will be our assistants? Therefore, we leave them here in the land,” he said.

(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.)

- 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."]
