    Zionist is a term often heard, but it's not always understood. Many people assume that to be a Zionist, someone must also be Jewish, or conversely, that all Jews are Zionists. This is not the case.

    It appears that the term Zionist was coined in 1890 by Nathan Birnbaum, a Viennese scholar and intellectual. He used Zionist and Zionism to refer to what was basically a political movement, one that would result not only in the return of the Jewish people to their ancestral homeland in Palestine, but a return with political sovereignty.

    So, again, stop all of the ignorant hyperbole and start thinking things through before you post. I grow weary of watching nearly everyone of your posts look like this.
    Zionist is a racist term and it is a violation of CC's Martial Law rules.

    I consider it a racist term because its use by muslims is derogetory 99% percent of the time. The conotation for its use is negative and meant to be demeaning.

    As such, I take it as an insult and a class label. It just stinks of insulting rhetoric. Maybe I am wrong but I find it insulting and demeaning.

    YOU may think that.

    YOU can go ahead thinking anyone who thinks similarly thinks that. You're just a oversensitive reactionist on your side.

    Israel commits warcrimes against civilians on a daily (maybe weekly or monthly) basis. A FACT you need to deal with.

    It must be your precious beautiful dove you cant stand to see get dirty.

    Shooting at civilians is precisely what many IDF soldiers do. It's probably not fun, its more likely in the stratum of a hate crime.

    Thanks for playing... badly.

    1.) The t-shirts are a matter of free speech.

    2.) Israel does not commit war crimes. That is pure propaganda.

    Okay, and "butter" is now a racist term. Why? Because I say so.

    So a word is racist because it is used by people who use it with a negative connotation? If I start calling black people "spoons," does it become a racist term because I am using it to demean and using it with a negative connotation?

    Oh dry up.

    Your random attack on a word used to insult Israelis is lame and uncool.

    Please do grow up.


    The Arabs use that word in a fashion that is meant to be insulting. That makes it inappropriate and offensive.

    It is meant to be an accurate description that describes Israeli political expansionism and it does so.

    It is considered racist as an attempt to shut down debate and discussion. It is used extensively by Israelis and Jewish Americans themselves.

    Wrong.
    Zionism is the national movement for the establishment of a Jewish homeland.
    Since the Jewish homeland was established like, over 61 years ago, today Zionism simply refers to being pro-Israeli.

    Claiming that it refers to Israel's "political expansionism" is quite hilarious, seeing that Israel has given away over 33% of its lands from post-Six-Day-War in 1967, till today, something that one cannot associate with expansionism.
    Calling it an expansionist is even more laughable than calling Venezuela a Democracy.
