Look, I get it. Zionism began as a liberation movement of the Jewish people. Jewish self-determination. A “resumption of Jewish sovereignty over the land that was Israel.” I’ve got the history, checked my sources. I’m no idiot, I don’t speak blindly. I’m not the kind of person to do that. I understand that there is evidence for a need for a Jewish state. I am not against that in any way. I don’t hate Jews. I honest to God don’t hate anyone except for the people who can commit atrocities without even thinking twice.
If so, why the original post?
You have completely missed my entire point. I’m not asking you to stop identifying yourself as a Jew. I’m not asking you to leave your culture, your faith, your people, anything. I’m not. This isn’t what I’m about so you need to sit down and leave it at that.
.This is definitely about me. As an Israeli, as a Zionist, and as a Jew, any post that involves Zionism is about me. Thanks, let’s leave it at that. Besides the fact, you, as a non-Palestinian goy, have absolutely no stake in this conflict whatsoever.
Please, don’t even for a fucking minute pretend you know me or the extent of my knowledge. Doing so just makes you look stupid.
I know you’re a non-Palestinian goy
At this point, we can both safely assume that I have no idea who these people are and I could really care less. If someone is coming to me with a message asking me why I can’t ~except nationalism~ and carry on, while Palestinians are being murdered for the sake of this “nationalism” then I think we have a pretty freaking big problem here, don’t you?
Your problem should be with upholding Palestinian human rights, not making mindless generalizations about a solidarity movement SO incredibly important to SO many Jewish people.
If I’ve offended you and you’re not a racist bigot determined to watch every Palestinian die so you can skip through demolished homes and dead bodies waving your little “nationalism” around, then I’m not sorry. At all. If, on the other hand, you can come to your senses, stop insulting my intelligence, and tell me that you feel ANY compassion towards Palestine and ANY anger towards your country’s government then I do sincerely apologise. Hey, you don’t even have to stop insulting me. That’s fine! So long as we’re both on the same page when it comes to the fact that I will in no way ever, ever apologise for standing up for those who do not have the privilege of having a voice.
The problem is that you’re not doing that. You’re making statements about a movement that has NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU. Do you even know how the Israeli electoral system works? Do you know how many seats Likud holds? Do you honestly think that there are no Israelis who are interested in seeing this conflict stop?
My point is that I don’t see zionists (as in, zionists, you know, the kind who support the destruction of an entire NATION OF PEOPLE) as human. Because of the fact that they’re encouraging genocide.
No human being would do that. Not anyone.
~*This is the part where you stop acting like a self righteous asshole to realize that I will know more about this conflict, and have more blood in it than you ever will. So if you even dare and THINK to insinuate that my Zionism has ANYTHING to do with hurting other people, kindly fuck off*~
