Reader comment on item: Zionism's Bleak Present

Submitted by Lana Fayman (United States), Oct 10, 2007 at 21:12

You are right, Zionism was not based on Biblical underpinnings, it was a secular response to Jewish rootlessness.. I believe it is a fatal error or the part of Jews everywhere to "remove" ourselves from our own history.

How do you promote love of Zion and the Jewish people without knowing our common heritage, our heros, the richness of our teachings? What you get is what you now see in Israel, Israeli's who have no self-respect. What a scandal
