The lonely crowd

On Voice of Judea, we discover that a rally organized by the former Shin Bet chief was a big flop. As they point out here:
Once again the nation of Israel has indeed spoken. The pro-disengagement camp has difficulty mustering together 50 people for a brief pro-Sharon rally. At the same time, anti-Sharon protesters repeatedly bring out more than 50,000 people who march for days in the most difficult conditions.
Yup. But here's something that comes prior to that part, that I want to discuss here for a moment:
Marchers held signs calling for a "Return to Zionism and to surrender Gaza."
This is hilarious. Zionism is the Jewish form of patriotism, and loyalty to all areas of land that are Jewish by national claim and history. Historically, that includes even Gaza.

So with all due respect, just what exactly are Mr. Ayalon and whatever followers he's got, if at all, trying to achieve by exploiting the word "Zionism" as they do?

They're just making themselves look silly. Because if they were Zionists, I'd think they'd be wearing kippas by now! And going to a synagogue.

Who knows, maybe they should. And by that, I mean more than just a Reform synagogue, assuming that's where they'd decide to go.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
