Neturei Karta, a Zionism-denouncing, Palestinian-embracing subculture within ultra-Orthodox Judaism, is suddenly sharing the spotlight in the antiwar movement. [Salon]
Although my family background is Jewish, I never considered myself Jewish. I rejected religion at a very early age and I’ve always considered myself more or less agnostic or atheist.
I don’t support Israel for a different set of reasons. First of all, the whole idea of a religious state, whether it’s Jewish, Chrsitian, or Islamic just plain bothers me a lot. Also, I don’t believe Israel is completely blameless in the conflicts. I see many cases under Sharon’s rule in which Israel attacks innocent Palestinians as the aggressor.
