I want to thank whomever accepts this debate.

Definitions-

Zionism- movement establishing and developing Jewish state: a worldwide movement, originating in the 19th century, that sought to establish and develop a Jewish nation in Palestine. Since 1948 its function has been to support the state of Israel.

Racism- 1. animosity toward other races: prejudice or animosity against people who belong to other races
2. belief in racial superiority: the belief that people of different races have different qualities and abilities, and that some races are inherently superior or inferior

RESOLUTION-Zionism is racism.

Con

I thank my opponent for the challenge.

I accept all of the definitions. My opponent has failed to post argumentation.

Just because there is a movement that supports a state for a specific race / culture does not merit racism at any degree.

I await my opponent's response and contentions.

Thank you.

Unfortunately, my opponent has not presented any argumentation.

The posted definitions do not prove that Zionism is the equivalent of racism. My opponent has not been able to support her side by a lack of refutation or contentions. I heavily urge a Con vote. Thank you.

It's not like I gave myself straight seven.

I believed that I had better conduct, thus I gave the conduct vote to the debater who deserved it.
