"Discovering their deploring of Israeli racism can make them social outcasts, many committed North American anti-racists back away, afraid to utter the truth. They censor themselves.
But the truth remains. If Zionism means driving Palestinians from their homes to make way for Jewish settlements, if it means Palestinians must be denied their right of return lest the ethnic character of Israel change, if it means that Israeli Arabs must forever be relegated to second-class citizenship, then Zionism is racism.
Nothing can change the truth. Not name calling. Not the bully tactics of Israel's defenders. Not intimidation. And not an uncritical media that readily accepts the easy and simple-minded formula that criticism of Israel amounts to anti-Semitism."- above from Mr. Steve Gowans, link
