If you are at a loss...see below...and that's not even international or comprehensive-just prominent Israelis.

Adam Shatz, the literary editor of The Nation, has edited a book titled Prophets Outcast: A Century of Dissident Jewish Writing about Zionism and Israel. The book contains essays by 24 prominent Jewish scholars and intellectuals critical of Zionism and Israel's treatment of the Palestinians. Another important book is The Other Israel: Voices of Refusal and Dissent, edited by Roane Carey and Jonathan Shainin. It contains articles critical of Israel's policies, written by 27 prominent Israelis.The foreword was written by prominent Israeli historian and journalist Tom Segev. The introduction is by Anthony Lewis, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, who worked at The New York Times between 1969 and 2001.


There are many critics of Zionism and Israeli policies in Israel itself. These include Avraham Burg, former head of the World Jewish Agency and former Speaker of the Knesset; Shulamit Aloni, a former Minister of Education; Yossi Sarid, a former Knesset member and past leader of Meretz; Uri Avnery, former Knesset member and leader of Gush Shalom; the late Israel Shahak, former Chair of the Israeli League for Human and Civil Rights; former General and Knesset Member Mattityahu Peled; Meron Benvenisti, former Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem; Jeff Halper, head of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions; Felicia Langer, a well-known human rights lawyer; Michael Warschawski, co-founder of the Alternative Information Center; University of Oxford historian Avi Shlaim; Eitan Bronstein, Chair of Zochrot (Hebrew, "Remember"), which works to remind Israelis of the Nakba or Palestinian catastrophe; the late linguist and journalist Tanya Reinhart; "New Historian" Ilan Pappe; Uri Davis, author of Israel: An Apartheid State (London: Zed Books, 1987); Tikva Honig-Parnass, co-editor (with Toufic Haddad) of Between the Lines; journalists Gideon Levy, Amira Hass, Akiva Eldar, Meron Rapoport, B. Michael and Gideon Spiro; writers A.B. Yehoshua and Yitzhak Laor. These are only a few of the many Israelis who are anti-Zionist, non-Zionist, or critical of Zionism and Israel's policies toward the Palestinians.

    You can post a question, you know. You're way off topic.

    Am I really off topic? While it's not too tough to find Jewish critics of Israel, try finding a Palestinian critic of Hamas.
    It's the other side of the same coin.

    I was just showing how your post actually makes Jews look good. Was that your intention? Judging by your other posts I would say the answer is 'no'.

    The so-called palestinians( vagrant arabs) brought this upon themselves, by attacking Israel with rockets, homocide bombers, and armed incursions into Israel.
    You sow despair, you will reap it as well.
    I say to the palestinian arabs, either enjoy the terrible things your leaders have brought you( and continue to do so) or get rid of them and seek peace with Israel.

    These fools belong to a micro-cult called the Nutra Karta. They number worldwide about 5,000. They object to Israel because they say that the Torah forbids the establishment of Israel until the Messiah comes. They use all sorts of arguments for dismantling Israel.
    Unfortunately, they are used by virulent anti-Semites who hid behind the moniker of of 'anti-Zionist'.
    They are tools.
