Looks like I’m a new kind of self-hating Jew

Bradley Burston in Haaretz:

This is the message of the new self-hating Jew: There is no place for the likes of Gary Rosenblatt in the new Zionism. Nor J Street. Nor the New Israel Fund. Nor Jews who oppose the occupation. Nor Jews who believe that non-Orthodox Judaism is valid and important.

A people which hates its own. A people which dwells alone. We are Zionism, the new article of faith has it. We don’t need anyone. And we certainly don’t need you. You, you liberal Zionists, you progressive Zionists, you leftists who for some reason still care about Israel, you’re the new Palestinians. You have no right to your ancestral homeland, the place your people came from. Because we’re here now, and we’re not going anywhere.
