Aharon, your assertion that Jews never prayed at the Western Wall prior to 1917 is an outright lie. My great-great grandfather, who lived in Jerusalem, in fact prayed there prior to 1917, as countless other Jews did. Zionism has NOTHING to do with the notion of Israel's holiness to the Jewish people. In fact some religious Jews opposed zionism precisely out of fear that a secular goverment would decrease Jerusalem's & Israel's importance in Judaism. Jerusalem is mentioned over 500 times in the Tanakh. And long before Zionism, Jews would pray for "next year in Jerusalem". Your posting is a cheap piece of anti-zionist propaganda, and no informed person would ever buy into your lies.
