    Zionism set out to establish a national homeland and safe haven for the Jewish people. Bit of a shame it had to establish it on top of the Arab residents of Palestine, but anyway, it achieved in 1948, the huge achievement of re-stablishing a state that disappeared 2,000 years ago. If I was Jewish, I would be very proud of that. But what should have happened after 1948 is that Zionism should have basically finished. Israel should have become a normal state, with a Jewish flavour, but one that values all its citizens equally. One that Jews, but also others, could immigrate into and become full members of its society. Instead Zionism has become a nationalist ideology based on race and religion which isn't really compatible with 21st century western standards, an ideology capable of keeping an entire people, the Pals, captive, so that Jews-only settlements can steal their land.
