4:38am on 22 Feb 19 Advocating for the illegal occupation under the name of Judaism, is like advocating ISIL and the KKK under the names of Islam and Christianity. Judaism has nothing to do with Zionism, please remove the (zionist and Israeli engagement) part, this is a religious society not a political one; maybe members would then ratify the society. On a sidenote, if you wish to explore zionism and Israeli engagement, I suggest you do an Israeli society not a Jewish one.
