Zionism Is a Right, Not a Threat

Dear Editor,

The religion I grew up with always included “Next year in Jerusalem” in EVERY Sabbath service. EVERY SINGLE ONE.

The idea that Zioness could be threatening to anyone is absurd and misogynistic. If Linda Sarsour felt threatened it is her own paranoia, especially since she is a supporter of Sharia law which is in and of itself misogynistic.

In 1946 the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of Jehovah Witnesses: missionary work and door-to-door preaching was an integral part of their religion and completely legal. Zionism should be the same: an integral part of Judaism for over 5,500 years.

The far-left Jewish proponents of equality, which includes the right to believe in Zionism, fail to include themselves in justice by excluding Zionism. Pathetic.

My great grandfather Pinchus Zukofsky, an Orthodox rabbi and father of Louis Zukofsky, a renowned Jewish poet, is rolling over in his grave!!!
