Zionism: What do we mean?

Our definition of Zionism and a collection of other people's definitions of Zionism

Zionism on the Web supports the proposition that every people has the right to live in freedom and develop its own culture, language and society. Jews are people like any other people. The Jewish people is a people like any other. We,  the Jewish people, have the right to self-determination in our own national home, where we can speak our own language and develop our own culture. Those are the basic ideas of Zionism.

The Zionism pages are intended for use by citizens who want to know about Zionist ideas and history and the controversy surrounding Zionism, anti-Zionism and Israel. We have materials and links to organisations that can help supporters of Zionism, and supports of the fight against racism know how to explain Zionism to others.

To state the obvious, Jews are as good or as bad as anyone else. Anyone who believes differently is a racist.

Our political position

The only political propositions we defend as policy at Zionism on the Web are that the Jewish people have the right to a national home in Israel (where people of all faiths and backgrounds can live and prosper), that Israel has the right to exist, and that Jewish nationalism is as legitimate as the nationalist movement of any other people. These pages do not belong to any particular Zionist ideological stream.  In these pages, we try not take political positions on issues within the Zionist movement, or indeed on controvertial positions within Israeli society. There are plenty of other sites about those topics and we aim to rather provide links to them. We do not favor any particular definition of Zionism or Zionist program over any other, as long as it is not a definition or program that excludes or delegitimizes other people. We aim to be inclusive.
