AIPAC: Inside America’s Israel lobby

Also an excellent video, covering the book by Mearsheimer and Walt, “The Israel Lobby”. It’s important to note that this refers to Zionists. There’s no doubt that the Israel lobby misuses the label of anti-Semitism to stigmatize its critics. But to identify this as “Jewish” is anti-Semitc. That would be the same bigotry of blaming all Muslims for the excesses of the Salafis and Wahhabis, or all Christians for those of the Evangelicals. Zionism, as is rarely known, is a secular movement. As noted by the authors of a documentary in Hebrew titled, “Herzl and Zionism”, “in fact, the Zionists used religious terminology to make the observant Jews enthusiastic about the Zionist concept, while their actual intention was as a state which would defy every principle of the religion.”
