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.

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.

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. The first Zionists were Socialists, they believed that Jews who live in Israel must work in agriculture to rebuild a Jewish society, and most importantly, know how to defend themselves and fight for what they believe in, because Jews who cannot defend themselves are pathetic and encourage anti-Semites to do with them as they like.
3.A true Zionist believes in the God of Israel, but more than he believes in him, he believes in humans and free choice, and that nothing can be achieved without God's will. He also knows that Judaism is defined as "the religion of the Jews" and not the other way around. Accepting another religion does not turn a Jew non-Jewish. On the other hand, a person who accepts the Jewish religion is accepted into the Jewish nation.
4.A Zionist always remembers the Holocaust, and understands the there is NO country in the world where a Jew can truly be safe except Israel, the only country in the world where Jews are a majority.
"A Zionist uses Judaism and his/her goal in supporting Israel as an excuse to occupy, control, and subdue an entire group of people."
A Zionist does NOT use Judaism as an "excuse" to control Israel. A Zionist uses the Jewish history in Israel as a REASON why the land of Israel, historically, belongs to the Jews and not any other nation. Besides, why should we even have a reason for occupying Israel? We came, we occupied the country, we defeated everyone who tried to stop us from doing so.
"They believe the Jewish race is a superior race, and that every other race/people should serve them."
A Zionist DOES NOT believe that Jews are a race. He believes that Jews are a nation. The Nazis claimed that Jews are a race. And the Jews being a chosen nation? Nothing more than an ancient religious claim. Modern Zionists DO NOT believe in that. But they do believe that as a nation, the Jews have the right to rule THEIR OWN LAND.
"Israel is a Zionist State, in which people of Jewish roots are privilaged over everyone else"
Aren't Japanese privileged in Japan? Aren't Russians privileged in Russia? What right do you have to claim there is anything wrong with privileging members of our nation in our country?

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
