Ashkenazi Jews and the Israeli Law of Return

Many people attempt to refute Zionism by historical references to Ashkenazi Jews. I don’t consider that a useful contribution to the discussion & think it skirts, if not often reflects, antisemitism. What matters is the Israeli Law of Return allowing Jews from anywhere in the world to claim citizenship & denying Palestinians their indigenous rights.

If someone identifies as Jewish & claims Israeli citizenship, that is a political problem–whether they be Ashkenazi, Sephardic, Mizrahi, or one of the phony lost tribes of Israel being discovered by Christian evangelists in places like India & Peru.
