The Reality is that Diasporic Jews are Calling for an End to Zionism Worldwide



In the western world, many diasporic Jews are members of progressive organizations such as the Jewish Voice for Peace in the United States.

Recently, the President of the Zionist regime, Isaac Herzog callously stated that all diasporic Jews should become ‘semi-citizens’ of “Israel”. His statements exude with ignorance and myopia, given that it entails that diasporic Jews are cannon fodder for the genocidal machinery in Palestine. It is also anchored in preconceived notions that Jews living in the United States, Europe, Australia and elsewhere in the world will condone the systematic killing and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians. However, an impartial and deeper understanding of the Jewish diaspora suggests the contrary.

While it’s true that the Jewish diaspora is not a monolithic entity with either a pervasive pro-Palestinian or Pro-Zionism outlook as Herzog implies, there is evidence to suggest that many groups do not approve of Zionism as a so-called ‘end all’ for Judaism or the establishment of a Jewish state. Take the assessments of British filmmaker Gillian Mosley as an example, who suggests that Judaism as a religion is more important than militant Zionist ideology for diasporic Jews. She argues that Judaism has been around for 2,500 years as compared to Zionism which has been around for 150 years, which makes the concept of ‘Israel’, its policies and support for its genocidal machinery, abhorrent in the eyes of diasporic Jews.

Hence, conflating Judaism with Zionism as Herzog suggests, is inherently flawed. In the Western world, many diasporic Jews are members of progressive organizations such as the Jewish Voice for Peace in the United States. The JVP is ardently against Zionism and consistently called for an end to the barbaric killing of the occupied, Palestinian population. Similarly, the ‘Neturei Karta’ or the ‘Guardians of the City’ group in the United States and “Israel” which consists of Haredi Jews was founded in 1938 and remains active as orthodox Jews opposing Zionism. Haredis advocate for the peaceful razing of the Israeli state and firmly believe that establishing a Jewish state is equivalent to a rebellion against God. Their fiercely anti-Zionist orientation has found traction in New York City, where they are actively seen holding pro-Palestinian placards and calling for an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestine since 1948…
