    "Zionism (the only surviving national movement of the mid and late 19th Century Europe from which Fascism and Nazism were born)." - Mordichai While I will agree that Zionism was a product of the Nationalism of the late 19th century, I cannot accept the argument that either Fascism or Nazism were a product. Fascism was a product of WWI. It was 'nationalistic' but it was much more than that. it was a rejection of the aristocratic regimes which started and prosecuted the war. Fascism was rooted in the inability of the soldiers who fought in the trenches to trust in anyone and anything which had not shared their experiences. Fascism believed in strong leadership, regimentation, militarism and team sports. Fascism believed in the 'future' which it was to dominate through superior regimentation. Zionism was quite a different expression of human desire. Zionism was dedicated to the perceived need for a Jewish Homeland where Jews could be safe from persecution. True, there were Jewish Fascist, and even Zionist Fascists. Zionism was overwhelmingly NOT a creation of the right, or, with the exception of some Jews who had served in WW I, aligned with Fascism at either an ideological or fundamental level.
