WHICH IS TO EQUATE ZIONISM WITH RACISM:

Post-zionism is just another name for Israel hatred (David Frum, Mar 17, 2012, National Post)

Over the past few years, there's been an interesting shift among opponents of the state of Israel. They've begun to call themselves "post-Zionist" -- a bland, bloodless phrase. The idea embedded in the phrase is that Israel can somehow be transitioned away from its current status as a Jewish homeland via some technical process not involving massacres and exile -- that Israel can be abolished without harm to the Israelis.

Anti-Israelism has always been about the destruction of one nation and one people.

Obviously if there can only be "one people" in the one nation of Israel--and Jews are a people different than the Palestinian/Arab people or than Christians--then to be a Zionist would be to be a racist. On the other hand, using Mr. Frum's own definition, the belief that Jews, Christians and Muslims can all be Israeli citizens is post-Zionist.
