The term Zionist has become a pejorative. Zionists are painted as racists, terrorists, and colonialists and are accused of approving a kind of apartheid against Palestinians. This trash is actually being taught by radical professors in many of our universities.We hear the term Zionist used hatefully on local public access TV. The term Zionist is spit out by anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers as a code word for "kike"...and worse. We Jews have heard them all.
Zionism is the liberation movement of the Jewish people which holds that Jews are entitled to a homeland of their own. Zionists consider Israel to be the one nation that is the haven of last resort for all Jews who desire or need to go there. Israel was the land of the Jews long before there were Arabs there. This claim dates back to the Old Testament. The Jewish religion predates Islam by millennia. The Palestinians are an invented faction created by the British occupiers and the UN. They have never been a nation, were rejected by their natural homeland, Jordan, and are refused a homeland within Jordanís borders or within any other Arab nation.
I am a Zionist. I am above all a patriotic American. My grandparents immigrated legally to America from Eastern Europe and Russia as perhaps did your ancestors from your family nations of origin. They started with nothing, learned English immediately, obeyed Americaís laws, and always worked hard never taking handouts. They were attracted to Americaís melting pot and were damn grateful to be allowed to come here. They were very patriotic and taught us to be proud, loyal, patriotic Americans. I have taught my children the same and they are teaching that to their children.
I believe with all my heart that the Jewish people must have a home waiting for them in Israel if they need refuge, as has happened many times in history to oppressed Jews. Donít use the term Zionist in a derogatory way. It is a sign of ignorance, malice and anti-Semitic bigotry.
Never Again.

I laugh when I see the Jews say they are patriotic.
He's a Zionist, he believes in Israel as a viable nation that kills, maims, lies, uses terrorism in all its forms.
