Welcome to my wiki userpage. I am a 31-year-old Libertarian Socialist Zionist living and loving in south Tel Aviv for the past 5 years. Although I am secular I identify as a Zionist because I believe that my people (the Jews) are entitled to self-determination in our ancient homeland. As a long time activist in the US I am fascinated by how different Israel's political landscape is from any other country I've seen. The superficial linear spectrum and labels like Left and Right indicate something totally different and often backwards here from their meanings in more developed countries. Rather than follow the trend of disdaining Jewish liberation like many of my progressive fellow travelers, I believe that Zionism can serve as a model for other indigenous peoples to achieve independence in their native countries.
