Yes Virginia, You Can Be Both a Liberal and a Zionist

David Bernstein explains. And the following is worth highlighting:

. . . the only feasible alternatives to Zionism are themselves illiberal–have a majority Arab state in which Jews are, at best, a suppressed minority, or force all six million Jews living in Israel to flee to whatever countries (if any) will accept them, or some combination of the two.  The idea that giving up on “Zionism” makes you a “liberal” is false, unless creating yet another Arab dictatorship in what is now Israel at the cost of six million Jews’ lives and liberty, and of by far the most liberal state in their region, is somehow a “liberal” option.

Of course, for whatever reason, there are people who would not be the least bit upset by the elimination of Israel “at the cost of six million Jews’ lives and liberty,” and there are also people who are not the least bit bothered by the fact that there are people who would not be the least bit upset by the elimination of Israel “at the cost of six million Jews’ lives and liberty.”
