Are you serious, Nick? I honestly don't know anyone who "singles out Israel as a central and fundamental evil in the world."
It positively defines quite a few people I know! It's a classic left-wing viewpoint. Israel is seen as an extension of the USA in the region.
The classic left wing view point was always unquestioning support of plucky Israel, at least until the mid 80s after Ariel Sharon's invasion of Lebanon started to erode support. Israel was set up as secular democracy and was usually run by left wing governments until the massive influx of dubiously Jewish Russians in the 80s and 90s.
You know the square root of fuck all about left wing politics.
