Zionism is Racism! Zionism = Racism! (continued)
Definition of Racism, Definition of Zionism, are Zionism and Racism the same?
On January 4th 1969, the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination adopted General Assembly Resolution 2106 of 21st December 1965, in accordance with Article 19.
In included the following:
The term “racial discrimination” shall mean any distinction, exclusion, restriction or preference based on race, colour, descent, or national or ethnic origin which has the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic, social, cultural or any other field of public life.
These were always the principles of the Zionists, and twenty years before the UN Resolution, Israel’s Declaration of Independence of 14/5/1948, stated:
In the midst of wanton aggression, we yet call upon the Arab inhabitants of the State of Israel to return to the ways of peace and to play their part in the development of the State, with full and equal citizenship and due representation in all its bodies and institutions, provisional or permanent.
Israel has adhered to this Declaration in the face of continual attacks by its neighbours and, (see is Zionism “Apartheid”), non-Jews are active in every walk of Israeli life, in its public institutions such as hospitals, politics and education.
Put simply, Zionism is the belief in a Jewish homeland for the Jewish people, in Israel. Zionism is the Jewish people's instantiation of the human right of self determination. No more, no less.
To continue we ask is Zionism “Apartheid”?
