People who disparage Zionism cannot even define it.
Zionism: the right of the State of Israel to exist.
There are Christian states, Muslim states, Buddhist states — and no one says a thing, even when some of these states have the most horrendous human rights violations in the world.
But one tiny Jewish state, a home or potential home for 0.2% of the world, in addition to many non-Jews who are Israeli citizens, and self-proclaimed “leftists” go absolutely bonkers.
Why? Because they hate Jews. Full stop.
There is nothing else to say.
Anti-Zionism is antisemitism. By definition.
