Jew, Judea, Hebrew, Israel.
These are all just names for the Jewish Nation.
The Presbeteryian church says that Zionism is the problem in the Middle East, but the problem is not Zionism; it is the guilty conscience of the Presbyterian Synod.
That's because the church equates Zionism with colonialism. And you know what this batch of White Anglo-Saxons thinks colonialism is: evil perpetrated by their ancestors, leading to the aforementioned guilty conscience. This in turn obviously skews their ability to judge the nationalistic movements of others -- especially when it involves Jews!
What the church cannot understand is that Zionism is nothing more than the Jewish Nation's demand for its right to self-determination in the land that has always been Israel.
The Jewish Nation, the Children of Israel and Israel are all one and the same and they existed long before the Romans invented the name Palestinia, long before the Church of England came to life and long before there was an Islam; or before the Arabs had left the Arabian peninsula!
So when someone tries rationalizing that he or she is not an anti-Semite, but just anti-Israel or anti-Zionist, don't buy that load of bullshit. Scratch through the p.c. rhetoric and you’ll find today’s version of what anti-semitism is.
Zionism dates back to the fight of the Maccabees against the Greek puppet state in Israel and the fight of the Jews of Judea (notice it was not called Palestine) against the Roman (European) occupiers.
The Jewish National movement -- Zionism -- far precedes the Arabs’ emergence from feuding, Idol-worshiping clans to a Nation.
It may not have been called Zionism initially, but the basic precepts of what would later be called Zionism date back at least to Greco/Roman times.
LIKE IT OR NOT THE JEWISH NATION IS THE INDEGIONOUS PEOPLE IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
LIKE IT OR NOT THOSE WHO STAND AGAINST ZIONISM ARE NOTHING MORE THAN AN ANTI-SEMITES. IN TRUTH MANY THOSE WHO STAND AGAINST ZIONISM ARE AWARE OF THIS FACT ... WORSE, THEY’RE PROUD OF IT!
