Reza Aslan & Cenk Uygur-Bigotry, Fundamentalism and Neo Atheism in the Media


Israel?


Israel?

Is the two-state solution, like the entirety of the concept of a ‘Modern Israel” – a farce? Demographics, as well as rational science, as well as religion, altogether, show that Palestinians not only outnumber Jews – they are living under apartheid-like conditions; without sovereignty, dignity, and and natural human rights. The tale is that this is the Jews’ home. Even if that is true – why demand the existence of a 5000 year old zionist state? It is not only scientifically bewildering but even theologically inaccurate – according to both ancient Jewish, Islamic and Christian religious texts.

The horrors of the holocaust are now only being repeated in Palestine, which only serves to paint a new picture where the inhumane Nazi extermination plan eventually fulfilled the creation of another fascist state – Israel. The British ensured the creation of Israel, when the Jews could have merely enjoyed living as nationals in other countries, celebrating their religion – I mean, the Nazis were defeated eventually, were they not? You see, unlike the ‘concept’ of Israel, Palestine is a secular country belonging to all religions. Zionism, au contraire, is the new Nazism folks.

they spread lies to make it seem like we don’t have enough resources to be individual dreamers.

Zionism vs. Judaism


If I get a permanent tattoo on my back saying I love Jewish people then proceed to criticize Israel and all zionist entities, you think I’d have a better shot, lol? Maybe then I wouldn’t be labeled an anti-semite.

Separate Israel from Judaism. Separate Judaism from Zionism. Separate Islam from Islamism. Separate Christianity from Fundamentalists. Separate everything from everything. Break down words.

Judaism is a religion. Jews are followers of that culture, religion, etc. Zionism is a philosophy arguing for the recreation of Israel, and like all philosophies, there are opposing perspectives. Whether or not Israel should exist is a normative question — I would answer it should not, because its creation negated the HUMAN RIGHTS of human beings, men, women, and children in Palestine. ┬áNow that it does exist, as an extension of Western Corporate interests guised by “pseudo-religious fundamentalism” and “fear-driven, conservative and authoritative politics”, and it continues to lobby around the world to justify its existence, people continue to die, war and famine continue to break out, and fundamentalism becomes rampant.

Look, at the end of the day, we all know the different between Jews and Zionists. We all know that every “group” of people has good and bad in it. I have many Jewish friends that I love, but I will tell you, that my position on Israel has not ever changed because it is rooted in moral philosophy.

The existence and continued expansion of Israel violates universal morals, human rights, and natural law.

The conflict now lies between the Arabs and the Israelis. The Arab people are struggling to prove to the world their ability to be free, democratic and just. The Israelis do whatever they can to weaken them, be it through funding terrorists or propaganda. And yet, all the while, innocent people lose their lives.

Ah, the wonders of the world.
