ZIONISM = NATIONALISM

Reader comment on item: "Jewish" - Not the Same as "Pro-Israel"
in response to reader comment: Zionist now the 'PC' word for Jew

Submitted by John (United States), Nov 6, 2009 at 17:54

Muslims, Liberals, Progressives, Marxists and Maoists use "Zionism" as a PC way of not being anti-Semitic, but truth be told, they are all anti-Semites. The argument that someone can be pro-Jewish but anti-Zionist is just so much nonsense. Those who use the term, Zionism, in this way have no love for Israel or Jews. Zionism is Jewish nationalism, and no different from Arab nationalism, Indian nationalism, and Korean nationalism, with one, big difference. No other "Nationalism" grew from a belief that their ancestral land would be the only place in the world where its followers could worship their God in peace and without fear of reprisals. If Hashem was the least bit angry with Zionists for re-establishing the nation of Israel, then He would have punished them. On the contrary, what the modern state of Israel has succeeded in accomplishing in only 60 years is nothing short of a miracle, and the Arab states that surround it are a testament to what happens to those who worship idols instead of the One, True God..
