@BretStephensNYT: ‘Jewish Power at 70’. Old Socialist comments

Your  depiction of Jewish Power at 70, is in fact here:

No matter your fear mongering about the eternal ‘Jewish Victim’, and the growing threat of Anti-Semitism in Europe,  Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman of Yisrael Beiteinu are the end point of Zionism: Arendt opined that Israel would devolve into Sparta, at war with its neighbors. The ‘Infiltrators’ are now the indigenous Palestinians, Arabs, Bedouins, who will now be put in ‘reservations’ , or African refugees , both Jewish and non-Jewish.

The Other within the body of Greater Israel, as an apartheid State. With active humiliation and murder, in its many iterations,  exercised by the ever shrinking Jewish population, on ever increasing population of Non-Jews. Demography is the worst enemy of the Zionist Project, or is Zionism by definition and practice destroying itself?

Gideon Levy provides an eloquent reply to the your Zionist triumphalist narrative:


The Palestinians, peacefully demonstrating were murdered by the IDF, who cursed these unarmed demonstrators as they committed their crime. Just like the Nazis did in Europe! A fact you will never face, as you are a bellicose tribalist to your marrow.

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
