For some really good info on Zionism and the Isreali/Palestinian conflict might I suggest Empire Files with Abby Martin. It can be found on YouTube.

Zionism is the lingering wounds Jews carry from WWII. Nobody, including USA, wanted us. McCarthy was very hot on shutting down Hollywood, another Jewish settlement so we get burned a lot. A group of folks want more than a place to live. They want a fortress. I get that but walls never work. These settlements are sort of like Mid-Evil castles. Architecture merely reflects their era. One doesn’t see many castles because they’re looking for stone structures but they share the same function. Survival.

I agree that the settlements are illegal per treaty. They’ve become sort of like heroin for Jews. But until enemies who refuse to recognize your existence (which is a separate issue from Right to exist) be willing to agree you SHOULD exist then security is a problem.
If Palestine stopped supporting such leadership Israel wouldn’t be so terrified. Heroine is hard to stop, though.

Zionism is a practice encouraged by the Rothschilds, a family of bankers who have spread throughout Europe from Germany. The Rothschilds make their money financing war. The British branch of the family was involved in partitions of Palestine and the larger Middle East, causing pretty much all of the problems America is having to pay for now. Like the majority of Israelis, the Rothschilds are Ashkenazim and not pure Orthodox Jews, they are converts. Orthodox Jews believe that Israel should not exist according to the Tanakh. The claims to rights to Israel are all mythical constructions created by Roman/Jewish collaboration in the social engineering effort called collectively, the Bible. It is interesting that during the Crusades, Christians would kill Jews on sight and a few remained in the region only under the protection of their Muslim Palestinian friends during this era.

Aaah, it's ZionIsm..it's the belief that all jews are bound..by blood to reclaim the land of Israel as ordained by their gaaawd.

Judaism developed long ago beyond the stage of being a religion

@McIntyre wrong..

Before the Americans got involved, before that in fact, before the Rothschilds got involved very few Jewish people were Zionists. It was sort of a pipe dream though a few Ashkenazi Jews did settle in the Levant joining the Palestinian Jews already there.

Contrary to American propaganda, the different religious and ethnic groups lived together happily until the oil companies and their countries changed things. The idea promoted by The West Wing that they've been at war for thousands of years is totally at odds of them living together for centuries, and the Sephardic Jews leaving Iberia along with the Moors to avoid the arriving Christians.

But as we know with religion, people just plain want to believe what they just plain want to believe and there really is no changing it.

Especially if some deity ordained it so. A Deity is that way don't ya know since it is created for that purpose.

I bought and read the New Confessions of an Economic Hitman, has a bunch of updates

The belief that the Jewish people's homeland is Israel. Had it, in fact, have been about people, it might well have worked out rather well because the vast majority of Israelis and Palestinians, regardless of their religion, just want to get up in the morning, go to work or school and then go home for dinner without getting shot/stoned/killed in a drone strike/blown up by a suicide bomber or Qassam rocket, but unfortunately governments and monarchs got involved and fucked everything up as usual.

May I quote you? That’s a startling reality that gets forgotten.

@rainmanjr Feel free 🙂

An evil, twisted ideology not unlike Nazism for a few rich individuals, mostly but not completely limited to the Jewish community. Repeat: not all Jews are Zionists and not all Zionists are Jews. But it is every bit as hateful, bigoted, and self-righteous as Nazism.

I know a town named Zion in Pennsylvania and I have discovered there is a country In Africa called Zion

There is a town in Illinois named Zion also. It's the only dry town I know of in Illinois.

There’s also a profoundly beautiful National Park named Zion.

Zionism is Jews being devoted to Israel. American Jews have raised money for Israeli hospitals, universities and charities. They support the government of the state of Israel even with its illegal settlements on Arab land.
