The state was created because under international conditions the Jews, who had been long exiled from their national home in this area, were uprooted and, basically, expelled from other parts of the world and had nowhere to go but home. Zionism is merely the expression of the concept that Jews, like other ethnic nations, have a right to live and settle in their own historic homeland. Zionism is only a loaded word to those who proclaim that Jews as a nation have less right to their nationality than other human beings. Those who feel that way can, basically, go to hell. We shouldn't be apologizing for having a territorial nation like every other historic ethnic group. This article is nonsense.
