Probably everyone has a bad habit. Some people eat at McDonalds. Some like to stop at traffic accidents, the gorier the better. Mine is to read Mondoweiss, a truly weird blog, mostly written by Jews, and with the aim to destroy Israel. (Yeah, I sum it up that way.)
This Mondoweiss post Nakba in The New Yorker, BDS in Variety links to Ari Shavit: Lydda, Zionism, and the Middle East Today, which article supposedly explains why it was so important that the Palestinians of Lydda had leave. Look for the key sentences: "If Zionism was to exist, Lydda could not exist. If Lydda was to exist, Zionism could not exist." Can you explain why? I do not understand the logic. There are plenty of Palestinian Israeilis and it must have been obvious that Ben Gurion and company in that era would have understood it. So why the importance of Lydda? Is it a matter of literal geogoraphy? Of location? I don't track.
Shavit writes (and anyone who writes "The truth is..." arouses immediate suspicion.)
