Why I Am a Zionist Too

John Rentoul

tent 300x168 Why I Am a Zionist TooI can’t remember when I first came across Tom Doran, but it was less than a year ago. One of the best things about Twitter is that it discovers new writing talent more efficiently than any other medium. In just 140 characters, his wit, intelligence and seriousness came through, and led me to some of the longer things he had written.

His article for Independent Voices on depression, for example, was outstanding.

Now he has excelled himself with the cover story for Jewish Journal of Los Angeles called “Why I am a Zionist”. It is beautifully written and shows some of the intellectual clarity and energy of the late Christopher Hitchens, which is an extravagant way of saying that I agree with every word of it.

Especially the last sentence, which is a masterpiece.

    Naive? Seriously, you’re going to point at a list of bat sh1t crazyness like that and tell me i’m Naive? Why am i naive? because i don’t instantly and unconditionally believe every crack pot theory that appears on the internet?
    One might conclude that your unthinking devotion to these unfounded conspiracy theories is the definition of Naive.
    If it is all one big facist conspiracy…why are they alive to talk so freely about it? Facists aren’t exactly known for their live and let live attitude.

    So you’re telling me there isn’t one moderate in Israel?
    If that’s the case i think you’re speaking more from a biased hatred than you are any sense of justice of logic…People like you are the exact reason that this mess will never be sorted.

    Read the posters. I didn’t make that list, just pointing out two of them are must-reads if one is not to hold naive views. The two I just mentioned are not in the least crackpot.

    There are lots of them, just as there are lots of anti-Capitalist Britons. But Britain will never be an anti-Capitalist society, just as Israel will never obey international law in regards to the Palestinians.

    It’s not hatred that motivates that statement but a long-term reading of Israeli politics – both right and left.

  • a_no_n

    that…actually makes a lot of sense.

  • a_no_n

    i’ve just looked and realised you aren’t…should have probably looked a bit closer at that…sorry.

    Just let Hamas & co. take over Israel. Then you will know what real racial cleansing means.
