You tread on contentious ground with your claim that Zionism and Judaism are one and the same - I'm not sure many would agree with you. Apart form, of course, the extremist hard liners in Israel. Zionism is a secular nationalist political movement (try reading Yablonski) whreas Judaism is a religion. Saying they are the same is like saying nationalism is a religion, which of course it is generally not. What has happened since Herzl's call to action is that zionists have hijacked Judaism and has been producing political rabbis who propagate a mingled message of political religion - the worst kind - see what has happened to Islam. There are many facets of Zionism that clash with the honourable humanitarian and compassionate tenets of Judaism. Zionism for example has no place for non-Jews, whereas the Torah calls for kindness to neighbours and strangers. Not much of that from the settlers in Hebron.
