Sorry Daniel, but you have no idea what you are talking about. REGIME does not mean a dictatorship, nor a political system whereby a minority lords over the majority. Much as I am loath to WIKI, it has it pretty straight when it says "A regime is the set of rules, both formal and informal that regulate the operation of government and its interactions with the economy and society." The REGIME is the thing that is responsible for the REGIMEN of the society in question, having the power to REGIMATE the actions of the people within that society. And that is in contrast to the STATE, which is what has sovereignty over the land and the people of that society. Zionism IS a regime, and it is in the ascendency in Israel - no question - but it is NOT the State of Israel. Zionism can be replaced without the State of Israel dissappearing, just as apartheid dissappeared but South Africa didn't. That this flies right over your head is a pity, but it's your problem, and not mine.
