Making peace with genocidal Zionism

By John Passant - posted Wednesday, 29 September 2010

The logic of Zionism is inexorable. It is the logic of genocide - to destroy all vestiges of the Palestinians as a people under the guise of peace and a home for all Jews.


Zionism is not interested in peace with the Palestinians. It has only one goal - the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians from Palestine. It wants nothing less than the destruction of the Palestinians as part of the ultimate goal of Zionism - an expansionist Jewish state across the region without Palestinians or their memory.

The genocide of the Palestinians has been going on since the establishment of the racist state of Israel in 1948. Zionism drove off 750,000 Palestinians from their land to establish the beach head for further expansion into Palestine.

Israel is an apartheid state. Zionism is an  exclusivist and racist ideology in its vision and practice. In this world view Palestinians are lesser humans. They have no rights to their land.


The 20 percent of the Israeli population who are Palestinian are second class citizens. They sit at the back of the bus. They are poorer, less well educated, have less spent on their health care and education and have higher rates of unemployment.

Israel has deliberately made the Palestinian areas under its control into bantustans. Its aim is to expel all Palestinians from ‘their’ country, a country which has no fixed boundaries. To date they have been stunningly successful in this dispossession - a process of genocide. This map shows that reality.
