Perpetuating the status quo is political, whether you choose to acknowledge this or not. Going off on people who disrupt the status quo is political. Dismissing people's concerns as "political" is extremely political. Everything you were doing that they are telling you to stop doing is political, and so is your response to them telling you to stop doing it. You can do other political things besides what you're doing right now.


there's no point at which Jews don't refer to ourselves as a nation/people (ืขื, ืื•ืžื”), but the Hebrew word for religion (ื“ืช) seems to have first appeared in the comparatively later-written Book of Esther, and is a Persian loanword (distantly related to Latin and English "data").

there is, of course, earlier mention of the Jewish people worshipping "other gods" which obviously refers to other religions, but this only goes to show that Jewish peoplehood/nationhood is not dependant upon religion.

attempts to separate the Jewish nation from the Jewish religion seem to have begun during the transition from feudalism to liberalism. with feudal obligations no longer holding together states, there was a need to get the people to swear allegiance to a "nation" that the state was charged with representing

as such it was said by french revolutionary figures, for example, that there could not be nations within nations...

a great example of a secular, leftist, anti-Zionist movement that considered Jewish nationality important was the Bund:

uspol + israel/palestine 

Classical Marxists believe the Messiah has not yet come and that he must come in the West to be authentic

Marxist-Leninists believe Lenin was the Messiah, but that only his Second Coming will create a classless society

Well then in that case the founding fathers were obviously laughably fucking wrong, case closed, can we move on now and stop worshiping their silly 18th century philosophy
