    "YOU refute it - theres 500+ years of history to back it up. ZIONism is the return of Jews to ZION - Israel." Yes, partially true. I would extend that further to say that Zionism has evolved into the committment to establish a majority 'Jewish' and 'democratic' state in historic 'zion'. I think we can all accept that. My point is that the IMPLEMENTATION of that ideology leads to necessarily racist policies. (Please read my earlier posts.) "Secondly - since Jews and arabs are both semites - it cant be RACISM" Oh, ok. Let's change the term to ETHNICISM then. Fine by me. The concept of race is inaccurate in any case. The point is the institution of policies that clearly value the lives of those from your own constructed 'national' (or tribal, etc) group over those of another. My point, once again, is that anyone in the same situation, holding the same ideological assumptions, would be logically forced to implement such policies. Its a tragedy of geography, demography and ideology.
