Z Street

Today on Middle East Radio Forum, one of the guests was a member of Z Street. Check out that website. I like it.

Recently, someone asked me what do i mean by "Zionist" in the header of my blog. I was rather taken aback by the question and responded that I was using the word in it's normal capacity with it's normal dictionary definition ("Modern Zionism is concerned with the support and development of the state of Israel.").

But, after going to the Z Street website and reading the definition in their charter, I find it richer, far more informative, more accurate ... just flat out better....

"...a Zionist is one who affirms that Israel is the homeland of the Jewish people and is and must remain a Jewish State. A Zionist believes that the government of Israel must not make concessions to, or engage in negotiations with, terrorists, terrorist entities or terror-sponsoring states which either implicitly or explicitly, seek to destroy the Jewish State of Israel."

Yes, that describes me as a Zionst.

If that means what I believe it means, it's an enormous compliment. Thank you so much!
