We pay close attention to all the affairs of our land, we discuss and debate everything, we praise and curse everything, but we forget one small detail: that there is in our beloved land an entire people that has been attached to it for hundreds of years and has never considered leaving it.
Yitzhak Epstein, early Zionist settler, in 1907
My name is Raphael Mimoun. I grew up in a Zionist community, in France, and lived in Israel for some years. I almost joined the IDF when many of my friends did.
In this blog, I try to dispel myths around the history of Israel and the Zionist movement and I discuss why I think that Zionism is incompatible with justice in the Middle-East.
