The Legal Forum for the Land of Israel supports occupation harshness. So does Israel's Yesha Council. They represent settler issues. They're committed to unlimited expansions. They're militantly hardline. They want Palestinians displaced. They promote Jewish exclusivity.
They responded to Hass' commentary. They did so harshly. They filed complaints with Jerusalem police and Israel's Attorney General. They wrongfully accused Hass of promoting violence.
Cellu Rosenberg is a right wing historian and national security specialist. Haaretz gave him op-ed space. He took full advantage. He headlined "Amira Hass' glass house," saying:
Her "defense of Palestinian stone-throwing is logically inconsistent, morally indefensible and a rejection of Israel's right to exist."
She "implies that 'resistance and steadfastness' inside sovereign Israel is also legitimate. And this is a dangerous crossing of the boundary, because it implies a rejection of the Zionist enterprise."
Rosenberg ignored international law. Resisting repression is an inalienable right. It's universal.
Zionism is racist, destructive, extremist and undemocratic. It promotes Jewish supremacy, exceptionalism and exclusivity. It chooses confrontation and violence over peaceful coexistence.
It endorses militarism, belligerence, intimidation, and state-sponsored terrorism. Alan Hart calls it "the real enemy of the Jews." Joel Kovel says it's "a machine for the manufacture of human rights abuses."
