Jews, Logic and Corbyn

According to the Transitive Axiom if A=B and B=C then A = C (If any two items are equal to the same third item then the two are equal to each other). I mention the Transitive Axiom because it is a straightforward way to understand that if Corbyn (A) = existential threat to Jews (B) and …

The Catch-22 of African Migrants in “Israel”

The issue of African migrants in “Israel” is a tricky one for both the Zionist entity and the original Palestinian inhabitants because each party to the conflict could exploit these individuals for strategic use against the other in spite of there being differing arguments on both sides to simply expel them back to their homelands. …

Making Sense of U.S. Moves in the Middle East

My father and I always had a tacit agreement: “We will never speak of That Part of the World.” He’d grown up in an Orthodox Jewish family in Norfolk, Virginia. His own father, a refugee from early-twentieth-century pogroms in what is now Ukraine, had been the president of his local Zionist organization. A liberal in …

Zionist Extremists Are Now the Mainstream in Israel

The Zionist movement has always been a schizophrenic one. The mainstream ruling factions of the movement, and later of the state of Israel, once claimed to be “socialist” in character. But in fact, the “labour Zionist” tradition that included figures such as first Prime Minister David Ben Gurion, war criminal and Nobel Peace Prize winner …

The Moral Decadence of Zionism

A poisonous ideology gives rise to a state, poisonous at its roots, the people poisoned by the state, indoctrinated, taught to hate and taught to kill without compunction, without conscience. Israel is by far the worst settler-colonial experience in history, infinitely worse …

Israel Is Bulldozing Khan Al Ahmar – and With It the Two-State Solution

Israel finally built an access road to the West Bank village of Khan Al Ahmar last week, after half a century of delays. But Israel only allows vehicles like the bulldozers scheduled to sweep away its 200 inhabitants’ homes. If one community has come to symbolize the demise of the two-state solution, it is Khan …

When Zionism Rubs Up Against Reality

“The wrongs which we seek to condemn and punish have been so calculated, so malignant, and so devastating, that civilization cannot tolerate their being ignored, because it cannot survive their being repeated.” With these commanding words, Robert H. Jackson, Chief Counsel for the United States, opened the War Crimes Tribunals at Nuremberg, Germany not long …

Two Souls

“As long as in the heart, within, a Jewish soul is yearning…” thus starts the official translation of Israel’s national anthem. Actually, the Hebrew original says “the soul of a Jew”, but the translator probably got it right. It’s the Jewish Soul that was meant. But is there a Jewish Soul? Is it different from …
