Confessions of a "modern anti-Semite"
Right you are, Nathan. We anti-Zionists don't like Israel for only one reason: We're anti-Jewish bigots.
If it had been Presbyterians who crossed the seas to invade and occupy Palestine, we would be saying: "Hooray for the Presbyterian State! Go, Presbytarians! Kill more Arabs!"
If Irish-Americans, proud of their Celtic heritage, organized to invade and occupy Palestine because it is the home of the ancient Celtic (i.e. Phonecian) peoples, we would all scream "Three cheers for the Celtic state! Exterminate those brown-skinned natives who have no business being there!"
If American Bible-belt Christians organized to invade and occupy the Holy Land of their Lord and Savior, and established a Redneck Christian State there, we would all cheer "Right on, Rednecks! Long live the Conservative Christian Holy Land State! (And thank God they're leaving North America!)"
Yes, we anti-Zionists, who are of course anti-Semites in disguise, strongly support EVERY ethnic and/or religious group that wants to travel thousands of miles to genocidally invade and occupy someplace that their ancient mythology tells them is their "original homeland." But for some reason we don't want to let the Jews do it. Why not? Because we hate Jews, of course.
We would be ecstatic if Native American groups throughout North and South America banded together to invade and occupy China, expel the Chinese people, and declare it their long-lost Red Chinese Homeland. After all, Asia is the original home of the Red Man - the Chinese are just interlopers.
And since the word "Indian" suggests they came from India, let's give them that, too. What to do with the two billion Chinese and Indian ethnic cleansing victims? Do what the Israelis did - put them in open air concentration camps. At a population density comparable to Gaza, all two billion Chinese and Indians could easily fit into Sri Lanka.
And we support white pride groups who want to invade and occupy Africa and expel the black people. After all, white people originally came from Africa. The black people don't really belong there.
We'd love to see the Gypsies to invade and occupy Egypt, ethnically cleanse the Egyptian population, and set up a Gypsy state. And we hope their cousins the Bohemians will do the same thing to Bohemia.
In short, we support the rights of everybody EXCEPT the Zionist Jews to do exactly what the Zionist Jews have done in Palestine: Go halfway around the world, commit genocide, and justify it by citing myths about an "ancient homeland."
Unfortunately, it seems that nobody EXCEPT the Zionist Jews wants to do this...or has the raw power to accomplish it.
And of course we can't support THEM.
Because they're Jewish.
And we're bigots.
That's the only reason.
Or so people like Nathan Gelbart would have you believe.
