Anti Zionist Zionist Dror Feiler On The Jewish State And His Right to Return

In an interview with the Israeli Ynet, Feiler produced some very peculiar Judeo-centric arguments that demonstrated a complete dismissal of any ethics, let alone any universal approach to the conflict.

Dror Feiler,
Dror Feiler,

(LONDON) - Ynet reported today that “Israeli expat Dror Feiler, who was banned entry to Israel due to his participation several Gaza flotillas, appealed to the Jerusalem District Court to reverse the ban and allow him to visit the country in order to tend to his sick, 90-year-old mother.”

Now, of course I hope that Feiler succeeds in his appeal and manages to reunite with his elderly mother, but the argument that Feiler uses in his appeal exposes the deceptive nature that unfortunately, is intrinsic to the Jewish progressive message in general and to Dror Feiler in particular.

In an interview with the Israeli Ynet, Feiler produced some very peculiar Judeo-centric arguments that demonstrated a complete dismissal of any ethics, let alone any universal approach to the conflict.

Feiler said “I contend that a state that defines itself as The Jewish State -a state of all Jews, should let Jews enter, if the Israeli state fails to comply with this, it had better define itself as a state of some Jews (rather than the Jewish State)”. This is fine for Feiler’s appeal but I can’t help wondering, where does it leave the Palestinian refugee? Can he or she allowed in?

Feiler leaves little room for doubt. His vision of ‘inclusiveness’ is referring to Jews and only to Jews but, being an exemplary Anti-Zionist Zionist Feiler adds "I oppose the policy, not the state itself, and I hope the court will grant me entry.”

So, Felier , because he is a Jew, demands to be allowed into Israel and goes on to contend: "If this is the Jewish State, Jews of different opinions must be let in as well.”

By the way, a year ago, the very same Dror Feiler disinvited the adorable Col. Ann Wright from joining his Jews-only boat to Gaza.

I guess that time is ripe to expose the horribly flawed, tribal ideology that has settled itself at the very heart of our solidarity movement.

Dror Feiler November 4, 2013 8:06 am (Pacific time)

It makes me sad to realize that texts are being spread on the internet that use my appeal to visit my 90-years old mother in order to attack me politically. It is tragic that some people (like Gilad Atzmon) are using their time for spreading texts that are unfair, devious, not true and meant to mislead people instead of struggling against the Israeli occupation, the siege of Gaza, the Israeli governments policies and the Israeli lobbies around the world.

Yes, I appealed together with my mother to the Jerusalem District Court to reverse the ban that forbidd me entrying Israel and allow me to visit the country in order to be with my 90-year-old mother. (The ban is a result of my organizing of and participating in the Freedom Flotillas 2010, 2011, 2012)

And yes, I did say that if Israel defines itself as a Jewish state, which means a state for all Jews than they should not prevent me from entering the country.

What I did not say was that I am in anyway supporting the idea of an ethnic defined state. I am very disappointed that some people (like Gilad Atzmon) are trying to twist my words so it will look as if I am for an ethnic defined state.

Everybody who has followed my political work knows that I have always supported and still support the idea of a state for its citizens (which means that the state is not defined by religion and/or by ethnicity) and that I am support the right of return of the Palestinians refugees.
