Over at Harry’s Place, Habibi is indignant about the book Unholy Land, a series of essays edited by Ken Coates. Coates describes Israel’s behaviour as “the slaughter of Palestinians”, and compares it to Biblical massacres.
If you strip away his flowery rhetoric, Coates is basically right. Zionism — actually existing Zionism, at any rate — is an evil doctrine that’s inherently about killing people and dispossessing them from their land.
My complaint against Harry’s Place is that while they rightly come down on the excesses of political Islam, they are blind to the excesses of political Judaism, i.e. Zionism. While HP refuses to recognise this, they are hypocrites.
