I am a Zionist.

 I am a Zionist. If I announced that, on walking into a party in New Zealand, I would quite likely get a worse reaction than if I declared that I am a P-addicted, ISIS sympathising prostitute. It’s not the kind of thing that one can state in polite company, at …

A confession of a left-wing Zionist.

The lies and the myths of the anti-Israeli crowd.

 How many lies and distortions can be spread in a single article? Sometimes, when reading on stories about Israel, so ludicrous the web being weaved, I somehow expect to hear Rod Serling overhead announcing that ‘I am traveling through another dimension’ accompanied of course, by the Twilight Zone’s classic music …

Why I Am Not A Zionist.

In the discussion around the ongoing Arab-Israel conflict there are, depending on one’s perspective, good people and bad people.  If one is an anti-Semitic anti-Zionist the bad people are called “Zionists.”  These Zionists are thought to be an unusually horrid breed of people who hold nefarious intent toward Arabs and …
