    Hitler and Zionism

    Labour MP and former London mayor Ken Livingston has got himself into hot water by saying “Let’s remember, when Hitler won his election in 1932, his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel. He was supporting Zionism – this before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews."...

    The main argument of the average Zionist is that Jews were in Israel first, Arabs are nothing but invaders from the surrounding countries who arrived after Jews and should basically go back where they can from. The main argument of the average Apartheid supporter was (or still is in some cases)...

    The future of Zionism in a no-Fall-of-France scenario

    If France never falls during World War II, then what exactly would the future of Zionism look like? Any thoughts on this?

    Other Movements Since 1800 Which Succeded At Creating a Nation-State Thru Immigration

    What I find extremely interesting is how the Zionist movement managed to succeed in creating a new nation-state (Israel, which is my country of birth) as a result of immigration; without the massive (in a cumulative sense) Jewish immigration into Palestine between 1880 and 1948, it would have...

    Is Zionism a form of racism?

    It's important to understand 2 things: 1) anti-Zionism is not anti-Jews (I don't like the term "anti-Semitism", because it's inaccurate) 2) not all anti-Zionists are against the idea of the existence of the state of Israel, but they are against the current state of Israel and the status quo...

    Jews and Zionism in a Central Powers Victory

    What happens to Jews and Zionism in the world of a Central Powers victory? Historically, when WW1 broke out, Jews sided with their respective countries, even in Russia. When the Russians started their deportations of Jews, Jews in the east began to look favorably upon the idea of a German...

    The Origins of African Zionism.

    Am thinking mostly of the African zionist tradition in Ethiopia. It is not simply the presence of Falasha jews in Ethiopia am talking about but also the Solomonic and Davidic traditions of the Ancient Ethiopian Kingdoms. Today the people of Ethiopia regard Axum as The second Jerusalem. Its an...

    Is Zionism Racism?

    Every New Year's Day, Europe's Jews greeted one another with the toast "next year in Jerusalem!". They regarded themselves as exiles in a foreign land - a whole people personified by the legendary "Wandering Jew", cursed with lonely immortality for his abuse of the Christian Savior. Over the...

    How would you define "Zionism"?

    Title question is self-explanatory, and may I also point out that there is no specific "point" to this thread - I'm just curious to see what responses it attracts.

    Zionism hurts Jews.

    The Jews are the most persecuted people in history. They often blame Christianity for their troubles, but they were persecuted long before Christianity came to prominence. The Egyptians, the Babylonians, and the Romans all persecuted the Jews, and none were Christian. The Jews fought with the...
