This is why people say Zionism is racism. There are people who thought they were both Zionists and anti-racists, but they were hugely outnumbered. The "Zionism" designed by Theodor Herzl had racism built in. It was the perfect springboard for Ze'ev Jabatinsky's terrorists. The anti-racists were duped and need to denounce Zionism and to help bring it to a close (via peaceful means — truth and reconciliation).
