Z Street: The New Zionist Extremist Group - by Stephen Lendman
On July 6, co-founders Lori Lowenthal Marcus and Allyson Rowen Taylor announced: "Z Street is launched, Will end J Street Treason." More on that below.
Continuing they said: "welcome to Z street! No more appeasement, no more negotiating with terrorists, no more enabling cowards who fear offending more than they fear another Holocaust. Z STREET is for those who are willing not only to support - but to defend - Israel, the Jewish State."
Never mind that no nation threatens Israel nor has for decades. It's a regional superpower - nuclearized and defended by the world's fourth most powerful military, armed with the latest state-of-the-art weapons and technology, and not reluctant to use them.
Its only adversaries are self-made and are needed to justify oppression, a culture of violence, an ethnocracy, exclusivity, privilege, and Jewish exceptionalism over others deemed inferior, legitimate enemies, and terrorists.
Zionism is corrosive, destructive, racist, extremist, undemocratic and hateful.
-- it claims Jewish supremacy, specialness and uniqueness as God's "chosen people;"
-- espouses violence, not peaceful coexistence;
-- confrontation over diplomacy;
-- strength through militarism, intimidation, and naked aggression;
-- is what Joel Kovel calls "a machine for the manufacture of human rights abuses" led by real terrorists posing as democrats;
-- what others say is repugnant, indefensible, destructive and malignant; and
-- what author Alan Hart calls "the real enemy of the Jews;"
-- an ideology contemptuous of Judaism's moral values and ethical principles;
-- the driving force behind a re-awakened anti-Semitism; and
-- a monster that's consuming its host and threatening humanity.
