I am an antitheist in the Colin McGynn style because all religion is clearly bollocks (see here for convincing sociological evidence- I should hope not to have to provide any philosophical evidence to people reading this far). As a consequence I am inherently anti-zionist too. A comment column at Harry's Place had a post from a Jewish chap (look for Hamish Q Cumber 01-01-07, 10:04pm) that contained a list of the principles of contemporary zionism together with some excellent criticism. Of note was the fact that advocates of a Jewish state are automatically implying that people of other creeds and cultures are inferior to the Jewish occupants of such a state. I cannot differentiate this from Nazi Germany, the South African apartheid or any other such adhorrence where a particular social, cultural or religious group are singled out for exceptional treatment.
