Zionism has nothing to do with genuine Judaism

Re: “Anti-Semites deliberately ignoring facts of Israel’s occupation”, Have Your Say, yesterday.

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign Thailand (PSC) stands by our statement describing Israel as an apartheid state and accusing Israel of conducting “slow-motion” genocide.

There was no indication of anti-Semitism in our statement whatsoever. Mr Leitner would however be correct if he characterised the statement as anti-Zionist.

There is a world of difference between the two, with Zionism having nothing to do with the real teachings of Judaism.

The record of Israel’s support for death squads in Latin America, for the anti-Semite regime of Argentinian generals, and its extraordinary support in establishing the bantustans in South Africa does not reflect on the Jewish religion. Instead it shows the dangers of Zionism on the world scene.

On behalf of PSC Thailand,

Mike Pirsch
