"You're a Friggin Jew! Er, Sorry-You're a Zionist!"

Hat tip Vlad Tepes

This video comes to us from London, via Vlad Tepes, where a demonstration was held outside St James Church. You will see an argument among 4 people, one of whom is pro-Israel and identifies himself as an Arab. (He apparently produced the video because in the captions, he is identified as "me".) He is engaging mostly with a grey-haired man labeled as "useful idiot". Early in the video, a woman identifies herself as Palestinian, asks him to turn his back, leave, and tells him she can tell by his features that he is Israeli, which the young man denies.  Most tellingly, at the 4:15 mark, another man (labeled as "barbarian"), who is pro-Palestinian, heatedly tells him that he is a "frigging Jew". He then catches himself and says, "Sorry. You are a Zionist."

This exchange is about 16 minutes long and is rather tedious after the above-mentioned portion.

To me, the comment by "barbarian" calling the man a "frigging Jew", is instructive. He then catches himself and changes it to "Zionist". That is the code word, but the man made a slip of the tongue.

You see, it is not so much about the land as it is about religion.

Why St James Church in London? Here is some necessary background.

It's about the people who happen to have a religion called Judaism...

Arab called friggin' Jew by anti-Zionist Brit. That about sums it up.

But in all fairness, Jews haven't sorted out whether they are about a land, a people, or a religion. Or perhaps all three, but then the liabilities of one may reduce the comprehensive umbrella afforded by claiming to be exclusively one of the others.
