Especially to Y and anyone else who believes the way he does,
I am a Jew...I however am not a Zionist but an optimist...I personally( with some or many disagreeing with me) believe that Jerusalem belongs to no one group of people...it is a holy place to enjoyed by all not just by Jews....As a woman I find your notion disgusting that we are all Zionists. I also agree with you that it is wrong....People of all backgrounds should be able to mix peacefully and treat one another with respect and that includes people NOT lumping people in with one big swoop...there are crazies, ignorant people, immoral, and evil misguided souls amongst every group of people on this planet including Jews, Muslims, Christians etc. However there are many more decent loving people in every group.
I thank G-d that my eyes are open and I am willing to share any part of this world with any being despite color or religion.
All of this I have proof that it can happen...I was recently married with many in my wedding party...an iranian muslim ringbearer, a hippie flower girl, a lutheran flower girl, a best man who is muslim from Pakistan, a groomsmen from palestine, a catholic italian bridesmaid, a born agian christian groomsmen, a second jewish best man, and the list goes on with more bridesmaids and groomsmen. Everyone had so much respect for learning our customs and felt honored to take part in them. I look forward to learning all of their customs in the same way..not that anyone of us changes what we believe and do just that we respect the other's viewpoint.
We can all get along if we stop labeling groups and start treating one another all the same!
