What is ideology?
Naziism is an ideology
Nazism, also spelled Naziism, in full National Socialism, German Nationalsozialismus, totalitarian movement led by Adolf Hitler as head of the Nazi Party in Germany. In its intense nationalism, mass appeal, and dictatorial rule, Nazism shared many elements with Italian fascism. However, Nazism was far more extreme both in its ideas and in its practice. In almost every respect it was an anti-intellectual and atheoretical movement, emphasizing the will of the charismaticdictator as the sole source of inspiration of a people and a nation, as well as a vision of annihilation of all enemies of the Aryan Volk as the one and only goal of Nazi policy. ... ...
Zionism is an ideology
Recently there has been exaggerated, misleading and perhaps even harmful use of the concept of "Zionism." The problem is prevalent both in Israel and outside the country; in the nationalist camp, the religious camp and the Labor movement; among liberals and ultra-nationalists; among Diaspora Jews as well as non-Jews; and mainly among Arabs.
Therefore, to improve the public discourse about our genuine and important problems and to do the utmost to limit the demonization of Israel, which is gradually spreading all over the world, specifically concerning this concept, I will try to formulate (this zionist's revision/propaganda of) concept of Zionism .... First of all, Zionism is not an ideology ... according to the Hebrew Encyclopedia... (Zionism) is not a
"... combination of ideas, understandings, principles and commandments expressing the unique worldview of a sect, party or social class."
... An anti-Zionist, on the other hand, is someone who wants to overturn the State of Israel after the fact - and with the exception of extremist sects among the ultra-Orthodox or among radical Jewish circles in the Diaspora ...
All of the important and fundamental debates taking place in Israel - annexation or non-annexation of the territories; the relationship between the country's Jewish majority and the Palestinian minority; the relationship between religion and the state; the nature and values of economic policy and the social welfare system; and even the interpretation of historical events - are the sort of debates and controversies that existed and still exist in many countries. These are debates that continuously address the dynamic and changing identity of every nation and country.
Just as these discussions do not require other nations to throw additional concepts into the mix, these debates among us do not have to include the concept of Zionism - which unjustly and to its detriment has become another weapon in the battle between the sides, making it difficult to explain the controversies and their importance.
Zionism is not a concept that is supposed to replace patriotism or pioneering.
Patriotism is patriotism, and pioneering is pioneering. ... by A.B. Yehoshua https://www.haaretz.com/1.5145104
Put the two ideologies together ....even a pre-k mind could grasp the concept, or, if they're seeing their family shat upon or worse by Zionist forces then they certainly grasp the reality as well, of its metastisizing across S.E. and south Asia for Islamic, Jewish, Christian, secular humanity indiscriminate haste and ruination on those unfortunate lands, under terror saturated skies of terrorUSt$ warfare, occupation becoming thoroughly pillaged abandoned polluted homelands not the U.S., not Israel. -- -- Zionism is an ideology; Naziism is an ideology; isRealHell in Middle East is Zionaziism
How this post developed is a consequence of my not engaging even were it not closed on ours' JWolfman's postings, comments or podcast. Under Jon Wolfman's what years have unfolded from my point of observation/participation to reveal a particulary zionauseous banner/himself i do sometimes read what others write and there was this that apparently got accidentally stuck in another member's post:
... it isn’t appropriate to call me a Zionazi or any other kind of Nazi.
i didn't read fully read all the comments, or even the one ending with the phrase/accusation cited immediately above /\ , nor was it clear to me whom the commenter was accusing, but regarding the commenter's claim that he/she was called, with or without qualifications," a Zionazi" by another member of this community does beg for some evidence to substantiate the accusation made against whoever is the member so accused.
