    This movement began in England at a time (17th century) when people thought the world was coming to an end, and they believed the Jews must return to Israel before that happens; Sabbatei Zevi was influenced by that movement; he proclaimed himself the messiah and was for zionism; however, he was forced to convert to Islam when the Sultan found out, and his followers became the donmeh in Turkey (or hidden Jews). Every few decades, the end of timers have a revival, but it seems to come and go, Not all Zionists were followers of Sabbatei Zevi, so I would think this movement does not represent all Zionists; some were nationalists in Czarist Russia (had nothing to do with end of time)
