62. Actually, her description doesn't even include all Zionists.

 

(btw, it's possible to be a Zionist without being Jewish...and some of the most intransigent and inflexible are the Christian Zionists...the ones who only back Israel because they are obsessed with dragging the world into their "Last Days" scenario, a scenario that leads to Jews being forced to choose between conversion or death).

A lot of Zionists actually reject the idea that all of Palestine should be part of Israel-and that what the IDF does can never be criticized...and that there's any reason at all to expand the settlements.

The better angels of the Zionist nature were about establishing a homeland, a place of safety...not hegemony and domination for hegemony and domination's sake.

The greatest threat to Israel isn't Hamas...it's the fixation the Israeli Right has with taking more and more and more land, just for the sake of taking more and more land. Netanyahu and his mob are totally committed to that vision...and they STILL haven't given up on preventing a Palestinian state from EVER being established next to Israel(even though they know that keeping Palestinians stateless means that the Israeli government has no right to ask the Arab world to recognize it).
