The times are changing. Millennial support for the Israeli state is at its the lowest, and trending downwards. And the Millennials are a huge generation. The world is going to look very different once they step into their power. I look forward to it.
Which means they approve of brain dead Arab terrorism.

No. This started long before Ilhan came on the scene.

I would bet that the majority of Millennials and Gen Z couldn't even find Israel on a map, much less know what it's about.

They are all just following the current anti-Semitic trend of the left. Monkey see, monkey do.

The Millennials are left-leaning and progressive. Get used to it. It's your future.

if one removes biblical religion from the Zionist platform and focus only on the need for their own land i am quite sure a different geographic area other than Palestine could have served as the new Israel


Australia is has quite alot of unsettled land for instance (displace a few aborigines perhaps/sacred mountain maybe)


Germany was one of the most accepting and civilized places in the world and events transpired to prove nowhere is safe except your own place

Not sure which this post reflects more of, ignorance or malevolence. Probably a combination of both.

First of all, you describe Likud as the "Zionist" party. This means you either know nothing about Israel or you know nothing about Zionism.
Do you even know what Zionism means? It's the "movement for (originally) the re-establishment and (now) the development and protection of a Jewish nation in what is now Israel". https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Zionism The overwhelming majority of Israeli Jews, from the left to the right, are self-defined Zionists. And all Israeli parties are Zionist, across the political spectrum, except the Communist and Arab parties.
Ignorance of that is the benevolent interpretation. I'm afraid that you do know the definition of Zionism and you simply reject Israel's existence. Rejection of Israel's right to exist is often the true motivation behind Israel hater's attacks on this forum. And we know what lurks behind that.

You're right. But history shows that as people get older they live and learn. In many cases, hard leftism mellows with age and maturity.
The OP will not get the wish he(she) opines for so repeatedly. Sorry OP.

I can say that about past generations like the boomers considering how things are now..

Being against a government does not mean being against its people. Like North Koreaís regime is terrible but itís people are not bad(yes in every society there are bad people).

The most recent Pew Research Survey has more detail about the generational divide. It shows that the old saw that young people would naturally grow more conservative as they age, or that their Democratic loyalties were an idiosyncratic response to Barack Obamaís unique personal appeal, has not held. Younger voters have distinctly more liberal views than older voters.

New Survey: Young Staying Liberal, Conservatives Dying Off

Read here to see just how progressive Millennials as a whole are:

That is so true but lets hope they do grow up before they have a chance to destroy this country.





What is really odd however is that the Left seems to be preaching that Israel, a modern country both politically and more importantly socially is the problem while they virtually ignore the fact that in other Middle East countries women are second class citizens, the country is run under an iron fist of unchanging unbending religious rule and don't even think about coming out if you are gay because it will be the end of you.



It is tragic that our kids are only being taught one side of the story.
