Opponent must be able to provide solid examples of Zionism meaning racism.

Dictionary definition of Zionism

(Noun)
1. A movement for (originally) the re-establishment and (now) the development and protection of a Jewish nation in what is now Israel. It was establishment in 1897 under Theodor Herzl, and was later led by Chaim Weizmann.

yes i can see that, but what I cant understand is how is that racism? it looks to me like that is just jews looking for a nation to live in, not driving out someone who isn't of their religion. It seems like they just want somewhere to live, as christians have the Vatican.
Debate Round No. 1

Evidently you didn't notice the word "not" in the title, and the fact that my stance is "pro".

Guess my profile picture went a miss too.

Otherwise, I agree with your statement(s). The premise of Zionism is that Jews, like everyone else, are entitled to a homeland. Particularly having endured persecution in previous places of settlement.

Reasons for voting decision: Not enough happened in arguments for me to need to punish the resolution confusion, however the weight of two forfeits is greater than one, therefore conduct to pro.
