No --- they're not the same.
I've got lots of jewish friends. They're great people, definitely nicer than most christians I know.
But Israel is currently a disaster. It doesn't have to be, but the right-wing government has GOT to go, and the human rights violations have GOT to stop.
And the article is right, a one-state solution is absolutely ideal. If there are adequate secular constitutional protections in place, there is no valid reason Israel should have a majority jewish, muslim, christian, or any other religion population. The only adequate protections for the rights of ANY religion are in a completely secular state. Theocracy is bad, full stop.
We shouldn't be supporting Israel OR Saudi Arabia. --- Likud, --- Hamas, --- the Republicans, --- anybody who thinks religion has a place in government.
