Herzl would approve

As Professor Shlomo Avineri points out here, the founder of Zionism would approve of the middle class protests in Israel, despite the fact that the far right is trying to climb on the bandwagon (far too late).

It is therefore wonderful to see the Israeli flag flying at these demonstrations after it seemed to have become the property of the right-wing settlement movement. The current demonstrations are not only a reflection of social protest. They are Zionist in the deeper sense of a just and humanistic Zionism.

Not the settlers and the other fascists who have joined in. They are neither Zionist nor humanistic.
