'Many zionists don't believe in god but believe god gave them Israel' - Ilan Pappe

Zionism was founded by atheistic jews in 1897, an ideology originally supported by the antisemitic British government of the early 1900's who wanted to push European jews out of the UK and Europe and send them to the middle east. Of course many European jews were against being sent to the middle east and saw zionism as an antisemitic movement.

After the 6 day war was won, more and more jews realised there was a good chance of having their own state and zionism became entwined with jewish nationalism.

Still to this day there are many jews that are anti-zionist and consider Europe or another country as their home land, not the middle east. There are less and less younger jewish zionists as they realise the connection between zionism and the occupation, genocide and apartheid of the indigenous population of Israel (Palestinians).

Unfortunately there is a growing number of Christian zionists who are antisemitic and want to take over Israel. They believe the messiah will wipe out 2/3'rds of the jewish population and the remainder will have to convert to Christianity if they want to go to heaven during the rapture; if they don't they will go to hell.
Many jews are not zionists, there are also Christian zionists.

A person that believes that there should be a state that has the majority of only Jews. They believe that Jewish people are entitled to a space that is their own and that has become Israel. They usually don't recognize that privileging one group over another is racist, don't care whether that displaces or harms the indigenous population and refuse to call it colonialism. For a Zionist, logically, everyday is opposite day.
Alice: Killing Palestinians and destroying their land and homes is wrong. I can't look at anymore bloodshed. it's awful.
Adam: Anti-Semite! Anti-Semite!!
Alice: Uggghhhh shut up. You're both semites, you're just a brainwashed racist zionist.
Adam: You'll see all the muslims will kill you if you don't defend Israel! They want to wipe Israel off the map!
Alice: Wait, isn't Israel wiping Palestine off the map? Plus, ewww dude ...that's racist.

"They have to die and their houses should be demolished so that they cannot bear any more terrorists," said Shaked "they are all our enemies and their blood should be on our hands. This also applies to the mothers of the dead terrorists," said zionist parliament member and law-maker Ayelet Shaked. She also called for the slaughter of Palestinian mothers who give birth to "little snakes."

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.

A Zionist is someone who believes in Zionism, the national liberation movement of the Jewish people. It is political movement based on the beliefs that:

· The Jews are a people.
· The Jewish people have the right to self-determination.
· The only land that the Jews and the world have ever viewed as the legitimate home of the Jewish
people is the land called Israel, or, by others, "Palestine."
A zionist believes that the Jewish people, or those of them who wish to, should undergo a national rebirth and
regeneration. The Jews have a right to become a nation like any other nation - a free people in
our own land.

A zionist believes the Jewish people have the right to realize their self-determination in the land of Israel.
