    to learn some history.  Additionally, you should take the time to learn that the resolution declaring Zionism racism is the only resolution in UN history to be revoked (first paragraph, last sentence).  Lastly, I would suggest you read this.

      is a battleground of narratives on any topic touching Israel or Zionism and should not be relied upon as a primary source.  There have been a variety of schools of Zionist thought, some of which,like cultural Zionism, are not necessarily inherently racist.   However, the only instance in which Zionism has been institutionalized, in the State of Israel, has created a system of institutionalized racism.  I do not see that statement to contradict Tim's comment.

        Zionism is the support for a Jewish State existing on at least some portion of the historic Land of Israel, to say:

        Zionism institutionalized is Institutionalized Racism

        is functionally no different than stating Zionism is racism.

        Aside from your broad-brush criticism, can you provide any evidence to prove that what I said was factually incorrect?

          to weasel's argument. Zionism is not racist either in ideological form or practical. It does not depend on a concept of "genetic superiority" to create a State. There for it is not racist. Repressive in it's treatment of the Palestinians, ok, I can buy that. Is that based on perceived racial superiority - Nope.

          Sorry Rusty, better luck next time.. we do have some lovely door prizes on the way out. Thanks.
