The Zionist revisionists basically drew on the same sources of inspiration as the Italian fascists, as the Spanish fascists, as the German fascists, this idea that the old Testament was the chronicle of a great nation of military conquerors. That Jews had this kind of mystical connection to this place and then we had to conquer it through military might…Everything the revisionists consider bad in Judaism were caused by the fact that we’d been denied our warlord state that they wanted Israel to be.
The American Prospect's Rick Perlstein on Israel's neglected history of revisionism, and a belated obit for Henry Kissinger. Also, we're announcing the winner of this week's Question from Hell!, a QFH! suggested by Rick.
