Anti-Zionism is the new black. But for those of us who recognize the roots of this resurgent phenomenon, there's nothing really new.


If I said I love her
Would you click your tongue for shame
Would your fingers drum the headlines
To hint I share the blame
If I said I love her
Would you crown me with her crimes
Tribal colonizer thinks the Bible’s wiser
Than the staff of the New York Times

Righteous beauty all the rage
A bold new truth to try on
Model for the mirror as you
Sing a song of Zion

And if I said I love her
Would you glance around in fear
Would you guide me toward a corner
To make sure your friends don’t hear
And if I said I love her
Would you shake your head and stare
Would you search my eyes until you find
The hate that you’re sure is there


But if I said I lost her
I bet you’d come around
To admire the wheels of justice turning
Over new-scorched ground
And maybe I’d get used to
The acceptance that you’d give
But oh my friend, my love and I
We would have rather lived.
