What is Zionism? (70)

Mon May 3, 2021 5:30 AM CST What is Zionism?
So many on here seem to hate the thought of Palestine being discussed or even a small mention drives some crazy, it would be great to hear some thoughts and not just the usual thumbs down responses, a bit lame I must say. Feel free to share you're views on the subject.. Thanks in advance tip hat

Without googling or consulting a dictionary (the logical first step for such a question), a movement to create a Jewish homeland... Lot of folks use such a word, without understanding its meaning. Sounds cool I guess...

Be great if that neck of the woods could co exist peacefully, but there are extremes on both sides actively working against it, so on and on it will go.

Of course that's a logical first step. It's just that the mere mention of what goes on there seems to bring a lot of hate towards my direction.. I think it is the fear of people realising what really does go on, so they want to silence anything on the subject, Anti-Semite and Jew hater is what I get called, yet some of my best friends are Jews and are opposed to the occupation of Palestinian land...sad flower

From Belfast, I'm sure you're more than a little aware there are some topics that just stir people up and cause shit. People have their opinions about things, their experiences perhaps, But sometimes one is opening a can of worms bringing up such things...

Yes there seems to be a lot of selective cans of worms that are more acceptable, I would rather opinions on serious issues though, then we get an understanding of whys and hows..

When the whys and hows are well known and regularly get airtime, it would seem more like activism than discussion.

That's the thing Pat, airtime for the oppressed is a rare comodity.. Activism can be just a simple thing as a smile to the right person at the right time I believe.. You don't have to be a left wing activist to care and want to understand certain things, this is an adult site and public forums are a good place to learn rather than expect to google everything.. Imo anyway tip hat

Likewise, many Muslim people are disgusted by the fighting, particularly when battles have been fought during Ramadan.

In Israel military service is mandatory and there is a culture where personal status is connected to duty. If you 'wimp out', or disagree with civilian attacks on the Palestinians, you are persona non grata.

At 18 years old, the age of conscription, those sent to battle are boys and girls, not men and women.

The war is not about religion, but religion is used as a tool. The war is about power, control and foolish inhumanity.

Dino the mods said no discussions of anything political..The blog section seems to get away with it more so than the forums..Your best bet is to put this discussion on the blogs..You think the forums are tough when it comes to political topics you ain't seen anything till you hit the blogs..Enter at your own risk

I have read a zillion books on this topic..I have watched a zillion current events on this topic..I have had many in depth discussions with people from Palestine.

Hey Jac, thanks for that.. I see the ones that are against conscription for whatever reason be it religious or other don't get it too easy either..

Feed back is better than getting personal, as usually happens on the subject here... Bless bouquet

Hey lovely, yes they seem to be very selective with the subjects they deem to not be permitted, Seks and Palestine are definitely a deal breaker with the mods I noticed..sigh
