The Adoration of the (Jewish) State

"You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: Thou shall not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them..." (Deuteronomy 5)

"It is all one whether you make an idol of wood, stone, metal, or put it together out of abstract concepts: as soon as you have before you a personal being to whom you sacrifice, on whom you call, whom you thank, it is idolatry." (Arthur Schopenhauer)

"This week, a group of 53 leading business, defence and intelligence figures presented a peace plan under which a Palestinian state would be created along 1967 lines with certain agreed land swaps. One of the leaders of the group, former Israeli intelligence chief Yaakov Perry, said Israelis were starting to be seen as 'the peace refuseniks'. 'Our continued presence in the territories is a threat to Zionism', he said. 'With every passing minute further damage is done to the state of Israel'. Key political figures in Israel, including Defence Minister Ehud Barak and Opposition Leader Tzipi Livni, have also said that if Israel does not agree to a Palestinian state the very nature of a Jewish state will be threatened due to the rapid growth of the Palestinian population." (Israel to lobby Canberra on Palestine, John Lyons, The Australian, 13/4/11)

IOW we have to pull out of the West Bank or else we'll be swamped by brown, sorry non-Jewish, people, and then how can we call ourselves a white, sorry Jewish, state, which after all is what Zionism is all about.
