So why did you put "Jew hating Iranians" if Jews don't come into this arguement?
And why don't you agree with zionism?
A racist Iranian (not saying Iranians are especially racist, this was of course originally about the earthquake) would see a Jew, not an Israeli, because the countries in the middle east are starting to be indoctrinated into thinking there is no distinction. In my mind there is a clear distinction, and so why I think 'jew' should not figure in the argument.
And i don't like zionism because it represents something almost Nazi German. (bear with me here) Nastyness aside, one of the things the Nazis harped on about was living space for their masterrace. Israel has gone down a similar route. The original Jewish inhabitants of Israel (who had co-existed happily with the arabian inhabitants) were never the cause of the conflict. The problems occured when rich zionists arrived from abroad and founded businesses, bought up land and started driving the arabians out. THis of course led to retaliations and growing militancy on each side, an arms race of sorts which has led to hi-tech israel vs low-tech palestine.
Interject into this a few wars, namely when Egypt and co invaded Israel. At one point Israel looked like it would fall, but it won out in the end and took much land from each country (i think it has since given back some of it, but still holds much like the precious golan heights.)
Basically, look at a map and see how much Israel has grown since it was founded (border wise). Then look at the immigration figures. The native palestinians are pushed out in order to make space for Zionists from just about everywhere in the world.
Im sure there view of these newcomers is a heightened version that us country dwellers do of the commuters all buying up the local houses.
