Zionism is a Jewish political movement that, in its broadest sense, has supported the self-determination of the Jewish people in a sovereign Jewish national homeland.Since the establishment of the State of Israel, the Zionist movement continues primarily to advocate on behalf of the Jewish state and address threats to its continued existence and security. In a less common usage, the term may also refer to non-political, cultural Zionism, founded and represented most prominently by Ahad Ha’am; and political support for the State of Israel by non-Jews, as in Christian Zionism.
The Zionist movement is of particular interest to researches of the global elite as many believe that in the US members of the Zionist movement (so-called Rothschild Zionists et al) hold great influence in the upper reaches of American politics. It is believed that many high ranking officials in the neo-con movement under George W Bush were, and are Zionists.
One vastly important distinction to make is that Zionism and Judaism are NOT the same thing. Not all Jews are Zionists and not all Zionists are Jews. Judaism is a religion, Zionism is a political ideology. Many in the mainstream media and elsewhere attempt to blur this distinction to portray criticism of Zionism as somehow being anti-Semitic.This is probably deliberate.
If we are to believe that the Rothschild’s (and others) are behind the Zionist movement we should look at two specific area’s, firstly how this powerful family have exerted their vast influence, and secondly to better understand the aims and objectives of Zionism.
