Left vs. Right: Which wing fights Jewish Nationalism?

“Zionist Union leader Avi Gabbay faced criticism from MKs in his party Tuesday for telling party activists at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev on Monday that “the Left forgot what it means to be Jewish.” Does this quote indicates a shift from the left to the right? Is it a main difference between left thinking and right thinking in Israel? Could this quote also show that the difference is Universal,  not just Jewish but that the difference is psychological in all personalities? Avi Gabbay is a leftist leader. He is the head of the Zionist Union, the leftist opposition in the Israeli Knesset. He had an insight that his leftist friends cannot accept: Leftist thinking is collectivist, global and anti nationalistic whether it is Jewish nationalism (Bait Yehudi), Israeli nationalism (Menachem Begin) or British nationalism (Brexit!). True, the Jewish left in Israel forgot what it means to be Jewish! My statement is not an indictment of the left. it is to teach my readers, as I have promised you, about the differences between the left and the right in business and relationships so you can select better partners to fit you. The left is Maxist, Carl Marx wrote at the end of his book Das Capital, “The goal is the withering of the State.” The only reason the leftist party in Israel calls itself the Zionist Union is to get more votes during elections. The left cannot be true Zionist unless it has the insight of Gabbay and accept that they don’t know how to be Jewish! If they do that they would be finished as a political party!  Zionism is Jewish nationalism and Gabbay got it. What rift it will cause to Mapai, the labor party of the first prime minister of Israel David Ben Gurion is yet to be seen. I predict that Israel itself is moving to the right in order to find its Jewish roots! Good or bad, I leave it out to you to decide. If you are leftist you probably say Bad (except Gabbay) and if you are rightist you probably say Good! Enjoy!
