"......the "Zionism is Racism" indictment."
Have not suggested anywhere to my knowledge that Zionism is racism, but as it manifests itself in Israeli policy towards its opponents, I believe it has become fascist in nature - or tell me where I have.
I am happy to accept the dictionary definition of Zionism as "A plan or movement of the Jewish People to return from the Diospora to Palestine" but when this is done via massacres, persecution, evictions and general aggression - brute force and hotility towards the people occupying the desired territory, it becomes fascism.
