I won’t respond to most of what you say, because anyone who has followed my tumblr for any length of time knows that I have posted many, many things about all of those places and injustices you mention.
I will just say this — Israel is NOT the only safe haven for Jews. Most Jews don’t live in Israel, and they never will. Arguably, the safest place for Jews right now is in the United States or Britain or something.
In any event, if Israel is the only safe place for the Jews, then Zionists are basically saying to the majority of the world’s Jews — “fuck you, we don’t care if you all die, out there in the world amongst the Gentiles, at least some of us live in Israel and will survive.”
that is a deeply cynical, conservative, and reactionary viewpoint. in contrast, i actually think that oppression and bigotry can and should be fought against wherever it appears, including the oppression against all of the various racial and religious minorities living in mixed-culture nations all over the world.
THAT is the only way to ensure the safety of any oppressed people anywhere.
one could further argue that because Israeli Jews are living in a colonialist, apartheid state which is setting itself on a constant antagonistic war-footing against the indigenous Arab population, it is inherently an UNSAFE place for Jews to live, even leaving aside the eminently unsafe conditions that such a situation entails for said indigenous Arab population.
Finally, as Israel society becomes more and more saturated in fascist tendencies, it is most certainly NOT a safe place for any Jew who speaks out against Israel’s war crimes and oppression. Anti-war, anti-apartheid, and left-wing Jews living in Israel have increasingly reported being physically attacked by right-wing and fascist Jewish Zionists in Israel.
Thus, what you really should be saying is this:
"Israel is the only safe-haven for right-wing Jews who are committed to the project of colonizing, occupying and ethnically cleansing the land of historic Palestine. But all other Jews (especially left-wing and anti-Zionist Jews) actually face far more freedom to speak out and protest in their adopted homelands (such as the U.S.) than they do in Israel.”
