Hey Badr, I think you bombarded Bisvas with your make sence info..I just think it is not fair to bombard him with missiles while he is using matches!! but that was fair enough...

Bisvas, I am glad now you know that Arabs, Turks, Persians, Azaris, Amharis, Berbers, Stavs, Armenians, Assyrians, Jewish etc.. are RACES and ETHNICS. Islam, Judaism, Jainism, Shinto, Christianity, Hinduism etc..are religions. Capitalism, Communism, Imperialism, Internationalism, Globalism, Individualism, Socialism, Islamism, Zionism etc..are Ideologies.

NB: most often people confuse the following:

1- Jewishness: Race
2- Judaism: Religion
3- Zionism: Ideology.

We can find a Jew in race but Muslim in Religion and that phenomenon is very common in Northern Morocco. Famous Muslim Jews families are: Ben Mahjoub, Ben Ayad, Ben nani, Ben yakov, fellous, etc..

We can find Russian (non jewish in race) but Jews in religion. Falasha Ethiopian Jews are black by race and Jews by Religion.

Zionism as an ideology was used by some jews to create Israel and many western states had interest in that. Even some Israeli state supporters in the Middle east even tough Arab leaders, they can be considered as Zionists if they adopt the support of a state working with Zionism as its ideology.
