Zionist is anybody of Modern Jewry from the late 1880 to Present who believe that Jewish people whether religious or not should have their own land. People of Modern Jewry are: a mixed of Jewish people from Israel back before Jesus (he was jewish though), Jews from the Rhineland, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Spain, and yes the Ruling class of the Khazaria Kingdom did convert to Judaism and yes we are guessing that part of the population converted too. With that in mind, we also had intelligent Poles, Russians, Hungarians, Americans, and other nations marrying into the Jewish Populations and were eventually absorbed into the Jewish Population as well.
With this being said, the original Land was supposed to be divided up into two countries by the United Nations, Israel and Palestine but the Palastineans never wanted this to happen even though a number of these same people sold their land to European Jews because European Jews were willing to pay more, and the land of Palestine was under British Mandate. The effect cause of this is Israeli's that got sick and tired of the hate directed at them, and Palastineans that don't seem to mind to live in squalor for 50 years.
A Zionist can also be considered as one of the millions of people in the world from all faiths, nations, and backrounds who believe Jewish people whether culturally or religious ought to have their own homeland due to all the contributions in the world.
Americans, Brits, the French, Australians, Turks, Jordanians, Egyptians, Saudia Arabians, Poles, Hungarians, Canadians, Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, Africans, Peruvians, Venezulans, Brazilians, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhist and other people can all be considered Zionists who support Jewish People to have their own homeland.
Before Judaism was a religion, it was a nation. For 13 centuries there was a nation of Israel. Zionism is simply the modern political movement to liberate Jews from the ovens of Europe and centuries of Muslim oppression and reestablish Jewish self-determination on the land that historically gave birth to the Jewish people.
Hypocritically, many people who harbor animus toward Jews and Israel refuse to grant this right to Jews, although they are eager to grant the right of self-determination to Palestinian Arabs...even though there are over 20 Arab countries in existence and even more Muslim countries. One such Muslim country is actually located in historic Palestine and is called Jordan.
The true owners who built the land of Israel up from a barron wasteland desert- only to be persecuted by Arabs who wanted the land but were unable to build anything themselves. So after the Jews- who make up Zionism civilized the area- Muslim Arabs started murdering them to take over the land. Then as an excuse to murder other people, the Muslims started an "intifada" because they are so unproductive and have nothing better to do.
Zionists, Jewish people, builders of Israel, industrious middle easterners
A term misused by idiots, bigots and people who generally don't know what the heck zionism is. Mainly used by people looking to scapegoat Jews and blame them for all the problems of society without looking overly anti-semitic. Of course, people with brains see through this usage and realize people who used zionist outside the context of a discussion of support or lack of support of Israel are really talking about Jews.
"The Turkish genocide bill was concocted by Zionist forces trying to push through their zionist agenda."
Ok, ignorants, now that you have abused Zionism in every possible way, called us racist, evil, heretic, and every other thing from what is written in the so-called "Protocols of Zion's Elders", it's about time that you hear how we, Zionists, see ourselves.
1.The Zionist movement, when it was formed in the late 19th century was NOT a religious movement in any way. It was a modern, nationalistic
movement, formed by Jewish doctors and professors from all over Europe, to discuss possible solutions to the problem of the Jewish nation (who were, undoubtedly, a nation, since they all shared the same culture, habits, religion and language throughout all of history, no matter where they lived), a nation, who did not have it's own land. Obviously, most of the Zionists believed that the Jews cannot have any other land than the land of Israel
, which was, historically, the ORIGIN OF THE JEWISH NATION, and which the nation of Israel ruled for 1200 years, until 70 A.D. when they were banished from the land by the Romans.
2.The first Zionist HATED the stereotypical, orthodox Jew, who lived in Europe for 2000 years, doing nothing but studying religion and working in minor jobs all day and waiting for the come of the messiah, and who could do nothing to defend himself from the nations among which he lived, who slaughtered and massacred Jews whenever they felt like it.
