Imagine how different the United States would be today if George Washington had altered his first inaugural address to read as follows:
"Fellow Americans; now that our country is established we no longer need the core values that pushed our citizens to fight for freedom and create this country."
That would not have been approved by the patriots who created the good, old USA, would it? Not by a long shot!
Yet that is the kind of message post-Zionists have been delivering both in and out of Israel.
Although the Zionist concept dates back to the destruction of the Second Temple and the exile of a large population of Jews from Israel, the Jewish democratic State of Israel is only sixty-four years old.
Imagine, also, if a later American president named Abraham Lincoln stood up at Gettsyburg, Pennsylvania and delivered the following words:
"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
"Now we have a minority in our country that dislike these great values. And since they do not like them I have taken it upon myself to scrap all that was great about this nation for 'Post-Americanism.' Thank you very much and have a pleasant day."
Guaranteed, that message would not have resonated very well with the soldiers fighting and dying to make America right and to carry on the greatness of the nation during its Civil War.
Could you possibly imagine a member of either the U.S. Senate or House of Representatives campaigning on the premise that the Constitution and Declaration of Independence were garbage documents, so to speak, and that they should be chucked into the dustbin of history? Of course you could not because it never would happen in the good, old USA.
Yet, Post-Zionists are trying to do the same subversive, seditious things in Israel.
Post-Zionism is an elitist mentality and its adherents want to deprive the common Israeli of his self-determination. Post-Zionism epitomizes the arrogance of the left.
It is vital to remember that just because the Jewish Nation State has been created it does not mean that it can rest on its laurels. We have not completed the project we have forged as a national crusade in 1948. We must fight for our freedom against Arab fascists who wish to duplicate the Jewish nightmare created by Adolf Hitler.
More than ever we need the great principles of Zionism.
Those who tell us otherwise are not at all interested in what is right for our people or our nation.
