What is Zionism? What has been the effect of Zionism on the Palestinian people and the Middle East? Most in the West believe that Zionism is the pursuit of Jews to their rightful homeland in Palestine as promised to them by God in the Bible. Few know that Zionism is a political movement founded by and atheist Jew, Theodore Herzl, in 1896 to cause European Jews to migrate to Palestine. Theodore Herzl had no religious leanings but used religion to accomplish his goals. Few also know that European Jews are Caucasians who converted to Judaism with no genetic or blood ties to the original 12 tribes of Israel. They are Khazars and it is as equally ridiculous to claim them as Jews with rights to Palestine as it is to claim converted Chinese Muslims as Arabs with rights to Makkah. Few also know that Jews have lived for many centuries in the Middle East, in complete peace and friendliness with their Arab neighbours.
