Global Consensus: Zionism Is An Attack On Judaism

Anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism. As Washington's Blog explains:
"Most Americans confuse zionism and Judaism.

While many assume that zionism simply means allowing the Israeli nation to exist, many zionists in high positions within the Netanyahu and Sharon administrations advocate for very different policies altogether, including the use of offensive wars throughout the  Middle East.  See this, and read the section entitled “Securing the Realm” here.

In reality, many devout Jews are against zionism as being antithetical to traditional Jewish values.  As such, many Jews say that criticizing zionism is not anti-semitism. … and some zionists themselves admit that even non-Jews have the right to criticize Israel.

Zionists can be also be Christian. Indeed, millions of fundamentalist Christians – including many in the American military -  want to start WWIII to speed the “second coming” of Jesus Christ.

As such, the common practice of American politicians and media of interchanging Iran’s words about the “zionist regime” with the word “Israel”  is disingenuous."
Here is an insightful quote by "bobsmith" that was made in the comment section of the Mondoweiss article, "Netanyahu tells a Christian Zionist pal that the bible was Ben Gurion’s claim to the land":
"A century ago Judaism was not about “vouchers.” Since the rise of Zionism, many of my fellow Jews can’t seem to tell the difference, constantly conflating Israel with Jewishness, prescribing Birthright tours as the elixir to prevent estrangement of our youth, who are fed a diet of pro-Israel B.S. and endless Holocaust memorialization. No wonder they’re estranged. And even the rabbis of the mainstream movements cannot bring themselves to criticize Israel, the “Jewish state” — as if all of us were in agreement about the aims of this country. At some point we’ll all have to ask ourselves if Judaism can survive — has survived — Zionism. I don’t want to belong to a “voucher-based” religion that believes in real estate deeds more than justice."
An excerpt from Alan Hart's article, "ZIONISM UNMASKED – A fairy tale that’s become a terrifying nightmare":
"Most Jews of the world (and probably many Gentiles) believe that Zionism is the return of Jews to the land promised to them by God. At the risk of offending some readers of all faiths for saying so, I must confess, and do so cheerfully, that I don’t buy this concept because the Gentile me does not believe in the God of organized, institutional religions. So, I say to myself, no God, no promise to Jews (or anybody else). In my perception of the scheme of things, God is the potential for good inside each and every one of us. God so defined is a prisoner within each of us and our prime task is to liberate this prisoner. But let’s put that to one side.

The Jews who “returned” in answer to Zionism’s call had no biological connection to the ancient Hebrews. They were converts to Judaism long after the end of the Hebrew conquest and short-lived domination of much of Canaan, the name as in the Bible by which Palestine was first known to the world. They therefore had no legitimate claim on the land.

The Jews who did have a legitimate claim, probably not more than about 10,000 at the time of Zionism’s first dishonest mission statement in 1897, were the direct descendants of the Israelites who stayed in place on the land through time. They regarded themselves as Palestinians, and they were fiercely opposed to Zionism’s colonial enterprise because they feared it would make them as well as the incoming alien Jews enemies of the Palestinian Arabs.

Also true is that prior to the obscenity of the Nazi holocaust, most Jews of the world were not at all interested in Zionism’s colonial enterprise and many were opposed to it. The most informed and thoughtful of those who did express their opposition believed that Zionism was morally wrong. They also feared that Zionism’s colonial enterprise would lead to unending conflict. But most of all they feared that Zionism, if it was allowed by the major powers to have its way, would one day provoke anti-Semitism. Which is precisely what is happening today. (Hence the title of my book, ZIONISM: THE REAL ENEMY OF THE JEWS).

In reality it is how the Zionists created their state – a Zionist not a Jewish state – that best defines what Zionism actually is.

Israel was created, mainly, by Zionist terrorism and ethnic cleansing – a pre-planned process that saw three-quarters of the indigenous Arab inhabitants of Palestine dispossessed of their homes, their land and their rights."
I am pro-Israel, but anti-Netanyahu, as I am pro-America but anti-Obama and pro-Iran but anti-Ahmadinejad. My position is that no single leader or government has a monopoly on truth, freedom, and justice.

The evil U.S. government, the despicable Zionists, and the political Islamists who hijacked Iran's revolution in 1979 will all FALL because their illegitimate authority rests on lies, myths, injustices, state censorship, state secrecy, false flag terrorism, repression, and murder of dissidents.

With that said, the extremist Zionists and the corrupt U.S. government are initiating aggression against Iran and lying about its nuclear program to justify their attacks so they are by far more guilty for the present state of things in the Middle East.
