Zionism will never become a bitter historical memory unless its eradication is coupled with the dismemberment of the State of Israel and the thorough dezionisation of its Jewish inhabitants.
Zafar Bangash is Director of the Institute of Contemporary Islamic Thought (ICIT) and on the Editorial Board of Crescent International. He is also pro-Iran activist and an organizer affiliated with Al-Quds Day.
On December 31, 2017 Crescent International published Zafar Bangash’s article titled “Understanding the True Nature of Zionism.” According to newpaper, “This article was first published in the CI April 2010 issue. It is being reproduced here in view of recent developments in the Holy Land.”
Here are excerpts from Zafar Bangash’s article:
Zionism has little or nothing to do with Judaism… Zionism is racism… Zionism will never become a bitter historical memory unless its eradication is coupled with the dismemberment of the State of Israel and the thorough dezionisation of its Jewish inhabitants.
However even this is not enough, as the tentacles of Zionism extend far beyond the borderless pariah State of Israel into the Arabian and imperialist capitals of the world. It is not enough to say that imperialist America and colonialist Europe prop up the Zionist cancer in the Muslim world…
Thus the will to make Israel disappear into the pages of history must also be the will to look for an Islamic post-national alternative to the nation-state fiasco that currently grips the whole world…
This is the only way to eradicate Zionism — as ideology and as social construct. All partial solutions will land us in the same spot we are in today. Until this racist ideology [Zionism] is uprooted and eliminated utterly and irrevocably, there will be no peace in Palestine or anywhere else in the world.
