"When one thinks that this is what is necessary for Israel to survive, that the Zionist dream is based on the repeated slaughter of innocents … that is really a profound, profound crisis,” says Rabbi Henry Siegman in an interview on Democracy Now! today.
Siegman’s father was a leader of the European Zionist movement that pushed for the creation of a Jewish state. Seigman served as executive director of the American Jewish Congress, long described as one of the nation’s “big three” Jewish organizations, along with the American Jewish Committee and the Anti-Defamation League. He has called the Palestinian struggle for a state “the mirror image of the Zionist movement” that led to the founding of Israel in 1948.
