§What is this Zionist Israel promotional doing here?
by Did you read this?
Every single Jewish Community Center and every single synagogue in this country is a bastion of Zionism, and that is certainly true of Marin County's Jewish Community Center. This is a promotion for Zionist Israel, not for a secular Palestinian state, not for cutting off US aid to Israel.
