Israel: Zionism in Question

Richard Silverstein discusses Zionism in this thought-provoking post. “It's hard to write about Zionism. First, it's a belief system that is so deeply entrenched among many Jews that everyone has a clear and fixed idea about what it is. As a result, it is almost impossible for it develop and change as the need arises. Second, Zionism raises red flags among so many on the left that it is difficult, if not impossible to use the term without immediate barriers rising to obstruct discourse,” he admits.
