Tity: Maybe our definitions of Zionism differ. I understand Zionism to be dedicated to the re-constitution of the Jewish people 'as a nation' in Eretz Israel...not a movement that requires every Jew to move to Israel (although its good that they have the option, don't you think?), and not excluding non-Jewish people from living there with fully equal rights. That is why I live here, and continue to live here and not in Israel. No Israeli has ever ordered me to come, but the invitation still stands, and I am happy with that. Second, Zionism accords the Jewish people national rights over Eretz Israel, but the original contract between Zionism and the nations of the world was that (a) the Arabs living in the land would have civil and religious rights (b) the Jews' rights in other countries would not be harmed. this is how I understand Zionism. Part (a) guarantees the rights of my Israeli Arab friends not to be violated. Part (b) allows people like you and me to continue to live in our countries as proud Americans and Greeks. Euxaristo poli, kai kalo SabatoKyriako. :)
