As we have discussed before, one of the most common accusations that is made by anti-Zionists toward pro-Israel people is that they are trying to deflect attention away from Israel rather than facing the truth. It is a topic that we have already covered somewhat, but I wanted to talk about when it gets taken to the next level, as in this example of a post:
Yep, exactly. "The issue" is whatever I say it is, and that's just the way it goes. It helps if you know the context of this post as well, it is in the David Harris article in which he calls out the flotilliers for not helping the millions of people around the world who are in conflict with nations other than Israel. That's because both the flotilliers, their supporters, and this poster have what I like to call anti-Zionist tunnel vision.
We know that people have their pet causes, which they subscribe to and participate in. For some people it's international relations, but it can just as easily apply to environmentalism, gay rights, women's rights, and so forth. But people who suffer from anti-Zionist tunnel vision go a step further: To them it isn't just that their issue is the most important one or the one that they happen to care about, it's also the only issue that matters. Other suffering and dying people around the world not only aren't as important as the Palestinians/Lebanese/Syrians/Iranians, but in fact might as well not even exist. That's how far the anti-Zionist has gone to hold the views that he has. And if anyone even so much as mentions it then he or she is just trying to deflect away from the real issue. Which, of course, is The Occupation or whatever.
Say what you will about pro-Israel posters, but they don't obsess over Israel and blot out all extraneous information like this. Tunnel vision tends to be an anti-Zionist thing.
