"We will always reject the notion that Zionism is racism."

"We will always reject the notion that Zionism is racism." - President Obama.

He's also awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to the Israeli president.

Also from the same Guardian article (emphasis added):
Obama sounds unusually defensive for a US president in stating his support of Israel – a reflection not only of the attacks from Republicans accusing him of endangering Israel by not pressing Iran hard enough but also because of Obama's earlier pressure on Netanyahu to halt settlement construction in the occupied territories and to negotiate seriously with the Palestinians.
Remember kids, Zionism isn't racist, it just means the Palestinians need to get the fuck out of their homes so that the Jews can live there.


In an early post I remarked, rather tactfully, "FUCK THE IDF."  That's not 100% fair I've decided, since the IDF relies so heavily on conscripted soldiers.   I despise the Israeli leadership to no end, but I wish nothing but the best for the vast majority of Israelis.

I just wish they'd get over their racist bullshit.
