Some recent comment-leavers, most but not all anonymous, spew forth on the "Jewish" aspect of Zionism, as if Zionism was a unique element among national liberation movements.
Two quick observations from me:
If so, that is, that the Jewish religious component of Zionism somehow stains our morality and affects the human-value quotient of same (i.e., since we bow to God/Divinity, we feel ourselves superior), why is it that the most orthodox of Jews are in the main neutral, or anti-Zionism, and have never themseves engaged, except for a few exceptions easily explained, in sustained anti-Arab violence?
On the other hand, the most religious of our Pals. are sacrificing themselves, their children and their neighborhoods.
2. See this below:
In 1927-29, the Grand Mufti Of Jerusalem (did the Chief Rabbi of the Yishuv ever lead a pogrom against Arabs?) stirred up trouble over the Western Wall and on Rosh Hashana 1928 (September), managed to get the Jewish prayers disrupted.
For the next 9 months, until August 1929, the Mufti whipped up his mobs into a religious frenzy about Jews trying to take over the Temple Mount. He then published a claim that he had "proof", the Jews had a picture of the Dome of the Rock with an Israeli flag over it. Well, the scan above was the "proof".
Within a fortnight, 135 Jews were murdered, just over half in Hebron (almost all "religious Jews" who had not involved themselves in "political Zionism").
This was a photoshop precursor since that flag was added on. Just so they could kill Jews. Due to religious motivations.
Sound like today?
