Joe Biden said he is a Zionist.

I admit I am not too well read up on exactly what a "Zionist" is, or what it means exactly Politically. I am aware it is political however, so I thought you guys would like to see him say it straight up.

This thread is NOT
1) An arguement over if Zionism is right/wrong.
2) A place to argue about wars.

This thread is for Reasonable Discussion of Joe Biden and his political affiliations and if this matters or not in respect to the Next US administration and its future policies.

Discussion of what Joe Biden actually means by "I am a Zionist" is on topic.

Lets keep on topic here, and please be friendly and keep the arguments respectful.

My opinion on the video?

I am not sure yet, however it did surprise me quite a bit.

Lets keep this civil please.

Ok after a little research I found a somewhat decent definition of "zionist"

"Zionism is an international political movement that originally supported the reestablishment of a homeland for the Jewish People in Palestine (Hebrew: Eretz Yisra'el, "the Land of Israel"), and continues primarily as support for the modern state of Israel.[1]"

Ok so Biden is saying he supports Israel's right to be a state? I guess?
Hmmm im still a bit confused about what he means.

I guess I should be surprised that I was surprised, becuase actually this isnt very surprising lol.

Actually it means that Biden is saying he supports the ESTABLISHMENT of an Israeli Jewish state. Considering that it was established decades ago, it looks like Biden is either in a time warp and forgot this is 2009 - OR he doesn't know what the term means.

Either way, he'll get along just fine with obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.
