Zionism is a movement which sought a separate home land for the Jews as a refuge from anti-Semitism. A very influential member of the movement was Theodor Herzl, a Jew and journalist who covered the Dreyfus Affair. Captain Dreyfus was given an unfair trial, convicted and sent to Devil's Island for his pains. This convinced Herzl that Jews were hated. He might have wondered why they were hated and suggested that they clean up their act. There is no reason to suppose that it happened. His answer was separation.
Setting up the World Zionist Organization [ WZO ] came next. It tried to persuade the Ottoman Sultan Abdul-Hamid II to allow systematic Jewish settlement in Palestine. It failed.
The good offices of the German Emperor, Wilhelm II, were sought, but nothing came of this. Instead, the WZO pursued a strategy of building a homeland through persistent small-scale immigration, and the founding of such bodies as the Jewish National Fund in 1901 and the Anglo-Palestine Bank in 1903.
The Zionist leaders always saw Britain as a key potential ally in the struggle for a Jewish homeland. Not only was Britain the world's greatest imperial power; it was also a country where Jews had lived for centuries in relative peace and security — among them influential political and cultural leaders such as Disraeli, Montefiore and Lord Rothschild.
Chaim Weizmann's invention of cordite was critical for the Allies of World War I. In his meetings with the British Prime Minister Lloyd George and the First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill, Weizmann, the leader of the Zionist movement since 1904, was able to advance the Zionist cause for which the war had created new prospects.
This hope was realised in 1917, when the British Foreign Secretary, Arthur Balfour, made his famous Declaration in favour of "the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people". The Declaration used the word "home" rather than "state," and specified that its establishment must not "prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine."

World Zionist Organization [ 1897 - ]
The World Zionist Organization, or WZO, was founded as the Zionist Organization, or ZO, in 1897, at the First Zionist Congress held in Basel, Switzerland. The ZO served as an umbrella organization for the Zionist movement. Theodor Herzl, who organized the first Congress, later wrote, "At Basle I founded the Jewish State...Perhaps in five years, and certainly in fifty, everyone will know it."
Zionism - the Wikipedia explains
It was coined as a term for Jewish nationalism by Austrian Jewish publisher Nathan Birnbaum, founder of the first nationalist Jewish students' movement Kadimah, in his journal Selbstemanzipation (Self Emancipation) in 1890. (Birnbaum eventually turned against political Zionism and became the first secretary-general of the anti-Zionist Haredi movement Agudat Israel

Haredi Jews, like other Orthodox Jews, consider their belief system and religious practices to extend in an unbroken chain back to Moses and the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. As a result, they consider non-Orthodox denominations to be unjustifiable deviations from authentic Judaism, both because of other denominations' doubts concerning the divine revelation of Written and Oral Torah, and because of their rejection of halakhic (or Jewish legal) precedent as binding.
Jews Against Zionism
Some Jews have taken the point that Zionism is their enemy as well as ours. They are saying so but they are not influential. If things hot up more Jews will suddenly discover they were against the whole thing right from the beginning, just like those Holocaust® survivors that came pouring out of the woodwork once it was all over.
Neturei Karta: Guardians of the City") is a small group of Haredi Jews who oppose Zionism and call for a peaceful dismantling of the State of Israel, in the belief that Jews are forbidden to have their own state until the coming of the Messiah.
Zionism - The Real Enemy of Jews -
The book that mainstream publishers were too frightened to publish out of fear of offending Zionism is now published.
The true story ZIONISM: THE REAL ENEMY OF THE JEWS tells is thrilling, chilling and ultimately inspirational; but this epic, two-volume work is much more than a good read - a "page-turner" according to Jewish, Gentile and Arab/Moslem test readers. It is written in plain, everyday language to assist concerned and caring citizens everywhere, of all faiths and none, to understand how, really, the Palestine problem was created and became the cancer at the heart of international affairs; why a political solution has remained beyond the reach of diplomacy; and why, as a consequence, unending conflict in the Middle East is producing more and more deadly global fallout - 9/11 in America, terrorist bombs in Madrid and London and so on.
FROM THE PUBLISHER
"Balanced, objective and beautifully crafted, there has never been a work which sheds such light, so comprehensively, on the difference between Judaism and Zionism and thus why it is perfectly possibly to be passionately anti-Zionist without being anti-Semitic or anti-Israel inside its 1967 borders; on how Zionism grew and the Zionist state of Israel functions with complete contempt for international law and the moral principles of Judaism; and on why Zionism must now be challenged and called to account - if the Palestinians are to have an acceptable minimum justice, if the twin monsters of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia are to be stopped from going on the rampage and if a catastrophe for us all is to be averted."
HELP BRING THE TRUTH TO LIGHT
Says author Alan Hart: "There are awesomely powerful vested interests on both sides of the conflict, including governments, which would prefer the citizens of nations not to be aware of the documented truth contained in this book. And in their time-honoured tradition, supporters of Zionism right or wrong will use their influence to seek to minimise sales of this book and suppress the informed and honest debate it was written to make possible. But this Zionist veto on truth-telling and free thought and speech can easily be overridden - by concerned and caring citizens everywhere demanding the book."
THE GREAT DEBATE
This book was written to provide the information needed for a Great Debate which must happen if the very last chance for peace is to be grasped, and, important of all, to empower citizens everywhere to participate in it. The author himself is committed to speaking on public platforms of all kinds around the world and to playing his part in the debate.

Alan Hart - the Wikipedia suppresses the truth
Alan Hart was a British television executive, who from 1981 to 1984 was the Controller of BBC One..... His tenure is not generally regarded as one of the most successful in the broadcaster’s history....... But when Michael Grade expressed a desire to return from working in the US to work for the BBC, Hart was shifted aside to allow Grade to succeed him in 1984.
The Wikipedia does not bother to mention his books on the evil that is Zionism. Mr Hart is very clear about the determination of the media to suppress the truth.

INDICTMENT OF MAINSTREAM MEDIA COMPLICITY IN SUPPRESSION OF TRUTH
Former ITN and BBC Panorama reporter, Alan Hart, author of the now published book ZIONISM: THE REAL ENEMY OF THE JEWS, is indicting the BBC and the mainstream media in general (excluding only ITV's Channel Four 4 News) for complicity, out of fear of offending Zionism, in the suppression of the truth of history; truth without which there cannot be the informed and honest debate about who must do what and why if there's to be a peaceful resolution of the Palestine problem. (In the view of many, a solution to the Palestine problem, the cancer at the heart of international affairs, is the prerequisite for preventing the twin monsters of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia going on the rampage and averting a Clash of Civilisations, Judeo-Christian v Islamic).
In his demand for truth-telling, Alan is drawing on his own experience and the research work done by Glasgow University's world-renowned Media Group, which carried out the largest and most comprehensive study of how television news covers conflict in the Middle East. and the impact of the coverage on public opinion. (This exemplary study was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council - a government body; and was written up in book form, BAD NEWS FROM ISRAEL, by Greg Philo, the Media Group's Director of Research, and Mike Berry).
Alan's detailed Indictment will be part of his submission to the Independent Panel which has been set up by the BBC's Board of Governors
"To assess the impartiality of BBC news and current affairs coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with particular regard to accuracy, fairness, context, balance and bias, actual or perceived."

Amazon Reviews Zionism; the Real Enemy of the Jews
I do not blame the Zionist lobby for exercising its influence, now in shocking and awesome alliance with America’s born-again Christian fundamentalists and the neo cons, in association with oil interests and the MIC (Military Industrial Complex). The Zionist lobby, I say, has merely played the game, ruthlessly to be sure, according to The System’s rules. I blame most of all America’s pork-barrel politics. I say that American politicians, including presidents, always had a choice. They did not have to do the Zionist lobby’s bidding when doing so was putting America’s own longer term and best interests at great risk. They chose to do the lobby’s bidding to serve their own short-term (personal and party) interests. And I say in passing that with American politicians as friends, the Jews do not need enemies.
