Misunderstanding True Purpose of Zionism

Reader comment on item: Iran's Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: Dear Mr Pipes opts for a choice

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jul 14, 2021 at 13:01

Zionism transcends humanistic affinities for developing a truly Jewish Nation; democracy is not Israel's ultimate national identity. So it does not matter how hard Israel tries or how badly the world and its kibitzers want to pigeon-hole the Middle East into an oriental or occidental model of imperial governance, the determination for Israel comes under a banner of a different destiny; and it will not be South African apartheid nor secularistic socialistic nor sultanate form of 'Palestine.' But it will be Jewish.

Technically, that choice has already been determined; timing is the only remaining issue and none of the power hungry internationalistic ideologies will achieve fulfillment of their designs. Everyone seems to forget who coined the term Zion.
