Phony intellectuals from kibbutz movement view religious Zionists as enemy

Some recent research by Channel 14 reveals that there's a very sick segment of the leftist kibbutz movement that still considers "Zionists" the enemy, and maybe even more than Islamofascists:
“Eliminating Hamas is a given, what’s needed to save the country is eliminating religious Zionism,” says a group of thinkers of the kibbutz movement after October 7. And we thought and hoped Israelis had gone beyond the hatred that ruled the land until October 6.

Yishai Friedman, a researcher for Channel 14, on Sunday night, revealed a Zoom discussion of some of the leaders of the kibbutz movement, including respected intellectuals and those in important positions in the movement, that mutated into a discourse of hatred toward religious Zionism and the Haredi public, complete which shocking statements depicting them as the real enemy even after the October 7 massacre.

Even more astonishing, the most repugnant statements came from Professor Eli Zur from Kibbutz Zikim, where an estimated 35 civilians and soldiers were murdered. Prof. Tzur, 80, is a researcher of Zionist history, and of the Israeli left. He teaches at Seminar Hakibbutzim, a Tel Aviv college catering to members of the Kibbutz movement, and heads the “Institute for Researching the History of Youth Movements” at the Yad Yaari Institute in Givat Habiva. Earlier in his career, he taught at Haifa University.

During the Zoom discourse, which took place on November 3, the kibbutz movement intellectuals, several of whom, like Tzur, are residents of the Gaza envelope settlements, described religious Zionists and Haredim as “the Jewish Hamas,” “the disease of Israeli society,” and similarly revolting antisemitic epithets, this while a disproportionate share of the national religious public is fighting and risking their lives to avenge their loss inside the Gaza Strip.
Needless to say, this is repulsive, and it makes no difference what anybody thinks of ultra-Orthodox either. Why, this is practically what led to the tragedies like that of October 7 in the first place. Because all these leftist pseudo-intellectuals really cared about was destroying core components of the country, and not about building up any kind of real moral template that could be built on going forward.

It goes without saying that to compare religious Zionists to Hamas is obscenely objectionable as it's divisive, and these phony pundits have really done something calling for condemnation. Their lack of gratitude for those fighting for their lives and those of the hostages is stunning.
