Lets put this to bed. I do not support revisionist (nationalist is a much better term or right-wing) Zionism. But I do support the actions taken by
the Israeli government, which is not Zionist.
Definition of Zionism?
a policy for establishing and developing a national homeland for Jews in Palestine
Note that is is establishing AND developing and national homeland in Palestine. That is Israel. If you support Israeli government action, you support
the furthering of the old Zionist movement. You look like you are trying pretty hard NOT to be connected to Zionism, which I can't blame you for
because it has a very pro violent history. Unfortunately, the Israeli government has been run by the revisionist Zionists for almost its entire
existence, so if you support the Israeli government, you support the revisionist Zionists.
Did you forget the same right wing terrorists that took power in the Israeli government back in the 70's has kept that power?
I have repeated over and over again that Zionism is a dead political term. There is no Nazi party in Germany and likewise there is no Zionist party
Zionism is not a dead political term until the Palestinians give up their homeland and give into the Zionist movement in Palestine. That has been the
goal for decades. Once the Palestinians give up, the land will be uncontested as Israeli/Zionist land, and Zionism, will then be completed and Zionism
will be a dead term. Not until then.
Also, if you would like to discuss the historical and political identity of the so-called Palestinian people we can do that on the thread I created.
Seeing as my thread is about the history of Palestine, I don't see why we don't just continue the discussion here. Most of my sources are in this
