C Bendavid - The question is does the need or desire of Jews to have a homeland justify the transfer of the non-Jews who were living in the land? On what basis is it just that the non-Jewish Palestinians should be denied their right to live in their ancestral homeland simply to accommodate providing a state for Jews? Whilst the origins of Zionism may have been secular, the actual establishment of Israel required giving the religious control over many aspects of civil law - including the definition of who is actually a Jew being dependent on religion. I don't think the beginnings of Israel are as secular as you may think or that secular Zionists did not use the biblical rights argument when it suited them. There is no secular Zionism or Israel to go back to.
