Zionist now the 'PC' word for Jew

Reader comment on item: "Jewish" - Not the Same as "Pro-Israel"

Submitted by Andy (United Kingdom), Oct 25, 2009 at 01:17

As a regular poster on the BBC HYS site it has become more and more common for anti-Semites to simple use the word Zionist instead of the word Jew to avoid having their comments rejected by the moderators. Whether it's posts about world banking, the NWO or who controls the worlds media they won't dare put the world 'Jewish' but will put Zionists, even if the post is nothing to do with Israel. It seems to be the left (and not just extreme left) that have taken up this practice. The left, who pride themselves of being against fascism and racism would not dare criticize the Jews, but the word Zionist gives them a means of doing so. Hell they can even get away with calling Zionist the new Nazis, which considering neo-Nazis stand shoulder to shoulder with the left when it come to supporting the Palestinians is a little hypocritical.

Why is it Zionism is a different thing to different people, by the extreme Left it is portrayed as the driving force behind global capitalism, while the far right wing fascists see it as the driving force behind global communism and both see it as the driving force behind there interpretation of what the NWO is. Scariest of all all is that the extreme Left, far right and extremists Islam have all united under the anti-Zionist banner.
