    At odds with established Jewish organizations, many younger groups are rejecting the notion of being progressive except for Palestine

    The massacre by Israeli soldiers of dozens of Palestinians in Gaza this week has prompted a new round of protests by progressive Jewish-American groups who object to the relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem – and who lump the Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu administrations together as enemies of peace in the region.
    Groups such as IfNotNow, Jewish Voice for Peace, J Street, Jews for Racial and Economic Justice and others began to step up protest activity – marches, vigils and community meet-ups – in late March, when Israeli forces killed 17 Palestinians and wounded at least 1,400 in Gaza.

    The protest activity has been echoed by influential voices such as the actor Natalie Portman – who last month canceled a planned trip to Israel to accept the Genesis Prize, saying through a spokesperson that “recent events in Israel have been extremely distressing to her” – and the comedian Sarah Silverman, who tweeted:

    American jews are totally different people. They are sensible and majority of them carry honest opinion when they talk about Palastinian issue.

    Yup. More than 90% of Jews in the US are liberal. In NYC which has a large Jewish population Trump didn't even get like 10% of the votes.

    It is a wrong perception that Zionists are atheists.

    Zionists are at the best "non practising" Jews, but in no way they are atheists.

    Yes, 50% Jews in US are indeed near to be an atheist and they constantly asking question about the existence of god. But in Israel, there are hardly any atheists present.

    Lmao @ Zionists are the best non practicing Jews :lol:

    You are not a jew by choice but by birth and lineage.

    Zionism has nothing to do with Jewish God and Jewish Law.Most of the zionists are atheists in Israel are only israelis citizens because their family members are related to jewish bloodline and that includes yiddish speaking non hebrew converts too.

    May be.
    But I find the Liberal Jews in US to be the best and they are more concerned abut the Humanity than Jews in the Israel.

    I am afraid it is not correct fully.

    There are atheist Jews/Zionists in Israel, but their numbers is very few.

    Just think it yourself, how could be Zionists atheists, while it were the Zionists who rejected the Uganda Offer (despite it's being perfect) and instead went for the Palestinian land as their future Jewish State, while Zionists believed in the Promise of God that this land belongs to them.

    Please also read this article.

    WHY ARE THERE SO FEW ATHEISTS IN ISRAEL?
    https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Why-are-there-so-few-atheists-in-Israel-436070



    Irreligion in Israel
    The 2009 Avi-Chai study found 77% of Israeli Jews believe in a "higher power", while 46% define themselves as secular, of which 8% define themselves as "anti-religious".[3]
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irreligion_in_Israel

    Therefore, there are at maximum 8% atheists. While almost whole of the Israel is Zionist.
    The reality is this that Zionists were at maximum "non practising Jews" or the one who claims to be Secularists.

    Okay lets get one thing clear liberal jews or any jews having nothing to do with zionism.

    The zionists going for palestine as a jewish land because God promised them?

    Who did God promise the holy land to? The zionists?:lol:

    The zionists fairytale of the promised jewish land is nothing but hoax.

    Conditions for the promised land according to Jewish scripture!

    1- The promised messiah will come

    2-He will unite the 12 tribes of Yisraelites

    3- He will establish the Yisraelite kingdom and the promised land will be give to him

    4- He would rule all over the world.

    Now the Zionists just grabbed the palestinian land and started calling it the promised land by Jewish God. Besides this the promised land is actually extended to iraq and ksa which the zionists called Greater Israel that is why the zionists state in its constitution does not mention its borders.What happened did the promised jewish land shrunk or is being given in installements with illegal statements by the zionsits state. You decide.

    If the jewish rabbis rejected Jesus Christ because he didnt fullfil the prophecies or couldnt satisfy the jewish rabbis than why do you think Jewish God will send HIS messiah in a bunch of converts and atheists who call themselves zionists??

    Please read the jewish law about what a gentile and converts and who really is a jew.

    Israel is filled with atheists zionists and around 80% of israelis hold dual nationality.

    Please read this

    https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/the-ldquo-protocols-of-the-elders-of-zion-rdquo

    According to the jews the protocols of elders of zion is the most anti semtic work ever.

    These are minority organizations in the Jewish community that enjoy a great deal of non-Jewish financial and personnel support and some members in common so their visibility isn't a reliable gauge of the support of the American Jewish community for Israel. J Street, for example, seems to have been founded and funded as a political tool of the far left rather than an expression of organic Jewish opinion and I think lost a great deal of influence after Trump became president, though I'm not sure many American Jews even noticed.
