5.0 out of 5 stars Logical and enlightening, 24 Jun 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Case Against Israel (Counterpunch) (Paperback)
I think it is critical to point out to would be readers of this book, that it is not in any way antisemitic. What Neuman does present is the idea that the creation of Isreal, first and foremost as a Jewish state, places the rights of those within the Zionist movement above those who cannot hope to ever be part of it. Those same people are then faced with a stark choice, stand by as second class citizens in their own land and watch their most basic human rights be legistlated away from them, or to resist. If the Israeli government was in any way benelovent towards the Palestinian people, if it chose to act with restraint more often that with extreme force this choice might be more dificult to make. Right now the numbers of innocent civillians being killed by the govenment forces presents a clear message, you don't need to resist to be a target of physical abuse you just have to be. Until this premise ceases to be a reality for millions of Palestinians, something only Israel can achieve, there will be continued bloodshed.

Would you use the same argument for the UK or Pakistan. Church of England and Islamic respectively. No of course not but its convenient to hide behind anti Zionism when what you really mean is anti semitism and hatred Jews specifically. It is precisely the argument that led to the world standing by whilst the Nazis launched the holocaust.
