POST-ZIONISTS:

Poll: Attachment of U.S. Jews To Israel Falls in Past 2 Years (Steven M. Cohen, March 4, 2005, Forward)

The attachment of American Jews to Israel has weakened measurably in the last two years, a recent survey demonstrates, continuing a long-term trend visible during the past decade and a half.

No wonder they voted Kerry--the GOP is too Zionist.

Heretics love irony.

This is actually more like a 28-year trend which began when the Israelis had the temerity to elect Begin and Likud to office and threw the Labour Party out in 1977. Until then, the more secular Jews in the Democratic Party could support Israel wholeheartedly, because they thought the people there were at one with them on a social welfare and government spending agenda. Whenever Likud gets into power as is the case today, they see it as just another Red State, which is why James Carvelle et al were so involved in Barak's election during Clinton's second term.

This is just another article typical of the Forward now that the Old Lefties have taken it back. Since the firing of Seth Lipkin as editor, it has become virtually indistinguishable from the Nation, and similarly irrelevant. If you want current opinion in the Jewish community, look at Jewish Week.
