Zunes has stated that Israel’s government “engages in a pattern of gross and systematic human rights violations and blatantly violates a series of UN Security Council resolutions and other international legal principles.”[1] Zunes has written that “support for Israel’s ongoing occupation and repression is not unlike U.S. support for Indonesia’s 24-year occupation of and repression in East Timor or Morocco’s ongoing occupation of and repression in Western Sahara.” He has also written that “widespread racism toward Arabs and Muslims [is] so prevalent in American society” and that many Americans identify with Zionism because it is “a reflection of our own historic experience as pioneers in North America, building a nation based upon noble, idealistic values while simultaneously suppressing and expelling the indigenous population.” – Wikipedia
