For my second installment of 'things that make you go hmmm'...
Is the Israel/Palestine issues one of those (thankfully rare) topics that is simply not one that can be discussed from a moderate (re: not either/or) stance?
I ask this here, because the 'anti-Zionism' of leftists is relentless. Hysterical, almost. Then you have the rabid pro-Israel crowd who also won't budge. I can count on one hand the number of individuals I've ran into over the years who can discuss the issue from both sides.
Deeper into this issue is the perplexing way in which normally rational human beings have a tendency to believe in a world wide Zionist conspiracy, assigning to these Zionists nearly god-like powers of manipulation and influence. I've lost as many friends to belief in the ZOG as I have to evangelist Christian sects.
So. Let us discuss the way people approach Zionism, Israel, Palestine, Antisemitism and moderation.
