Excellent article... the term Zionism has been highjacked, by people who know nothing of it's history. After all... Zionism was coined way, way before the 1967 war, before occupation and before expansion. Before west bank settlements and before Gaza as a distinct entity. Zionism was a right of Jewish people to self determination. Just like manifest destiny in the United States or Perestroika in the Soviet Union and the Cultural Revolution in China. People forget that Zionism was a tool first used by the Kibbutzim... as an instrument of socialism in it's purest form. Not for colonization or settlement but for economical self sufficiency and for the survival of the communal ethic. Today, the little tyrant Ahmadinejad uses the term as a euphemism for a four letter word. I'm happy to see Israeli writers and journalists debate and re-discover what Zionism really means.
