WATCH: Faith, blind support and the Jewish state – video

American Zionism is at a dangerous crossroads. At the AIPAC conference days ago, Max Blumenthal asked some participants about the Israeli Occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. The answers he got were shocking for their ignorance but not surprising.

What I saw in this video is that the American Zionist movement with AIPAC at its head is becoming one based on faith and not political reality. No longer are facts or even logic necessary for one to be ‘pro-Israel.’ In fact, factual analysis of the present situation is often critiqued for being biased or ungrounded in historical reality of Israel. What I see in this video are people with blind support, conviction and an almost messianic passion to support a state whose policies they are completely ignorant of. Nothing good for the Palestinian, Israeli or Jews can come from blind support of the Israeli state.
