Zionist founder Theodore Herzl said Palestine is "our unforgettable historic homeland" and called for establishing it by dispossessing indigenous Palestinians and replacing them with Jews.

In his book "Overcoming Zionism," Joel Kovel wrote:

Zionism seeks "the restoration of tribalism in the guise of a modern, highly militaralized and aggressive state. (It) cut Jews off from (their) history and led to a fateful identity of interests with antisemitism (becoming) the only thing that united them. (It) fell into the ways of imperialist expansion and militarism, and showed signs of the fascist malignancy."

If you accept "the idea of a Jewish state," you mix its twin notions of "particularism (and) exceptionalism (that are) the actual bane of Judaism (and give) racism an objective, enduring, institutionalized and obdurate character." It turns Israel "into a machine for the manufacture of human rights abuses."

 

Its bloodstained history proves it. Early Zionists called for "establishing for the Jewish people a publicly and legally assured home in Eretz Yisrael." It began a process of:


  • settling Jewish agriculturists, artisans, and tradesmen in Palestine; 
  • organizing effective action groups in various countries;
  • building Jewish consciousness and a national identity; and
  • gaining worldwide acceptance for a Jewish homeland.

At issue was replacing Palestinians with Jews. Britain went along. Its 1917 Balfour Declaration "establish(ed) in Palestine (a) national home for the Jewish people." 

The 1915 McHahon-Hussein Agreement also guaranteed one for Arabs. Britain betrayed them. So did America and France. Sykes-Picot (1916) carved out Western regional spheres of influence. Ottoman Arab provinces were divided their way. Arabs had no say.
