The term "Zionist Agression" in
source: ... Our primary assumption in our fight against Israel states that the Zionist entity is aggressive from its inception, and built on lands wrested from their owners, at the expense of the rights of the Muslim people. Therefore our struggle will end only when this entity is obliterated. We recognize no treaty with it, no cease fire, and no peace agreements, whether separate or consolidated.
... is about as anti-semitic as it gets.  See 4109 which must be under construction in private. 
One should also consider Syrian & Iranian agression.

source: ... No other nation that i know of  came into existance by people from foreign lands assembling on land that was already occupied and then calling that home.
...The history of the world is full of such examples. Try the US. The Greek & Roman Empires. The Balkans & most of the countries in the Middle East such as Iraq.  All of these have their boundaries changed under war & settlement.

Yep, apparently my preemptive strike of using the word "contemporary" to forstall such a reaction to my thought was a dismal failure.  But it was my thought, which was thunk to show you how I use the word "Zionism" to comprehend the thinking of a society in which i did not matriculate ... a society which, even excusive of the Hezbollah, use that word quite frequently to think.  So, notwistanding your correction of my historical understanding, what is your answer to my question: If i think that thought in those terms, am to be cast into the same anti-semitic hell inhabited by Mel Gibson?

I don't understand why you would be surprised that "Zionist Agression" would show up in a Hezbollah Script. 

Mark de LA says
I'm not suprised. I was pointing out that it is anti-semitic.  The media goes bonkers over anti-semitic things like Mel Gibson & yet treats the Hezbos as if they are just "freedom fighters" much like our heroes of the Revolutionary War.

For me it seems to refer to a state of mind that acknowledges that Israel is unique amoung contemporary nations.  No other nation that i know of  came into existance by people from foreign lands assembling on land that was already occupied and then calling that home.  If i think that thought in those terms, am to be cast into the same anti-semitic hell inhabited by Mel Gibson?

Well, I just think Mel Gibson was a drunk.  On the other hand you should know better.  So far you have framed the problem as the Zionists against the Palestinians.  I don't think that's going to work.  BTW, the Jews have been around - in that part of the Middle East for thousands of years.

Well it has been the Jews against the Palestinians since the Exodus .  Wasn't Mel Gibso in that movie ?  Then every demigod in the region cranks that to manipulate the sympathies of their population for their own power adgendas ... hense the current breakdown of Iran and Syria standing behind Hezbollah and Wahhabi Sunnies standing behind Hamas.  But, of course, you know that.  Perhaps you even know that the US military industrial complex is making the big bucks by supplying Israel arms, so "we" have out dog in this war as well.  My point is simple ... and hey its not just me ... most clear thinkers have seen the same thing:  Remove the point of contention.

You just say, in the traditional spirt of the  right-wrong game:  "it's not going to work".  But you offer a "solution" which is headed straight for a disaster.  Well I say with just as much tradition in the spirit of John Lennon, "Give peace a chance!"

Mark de LA says
I've been giving peace a chance with my flower power for over a week - has any body noticed peace breaking out anywhere?

 Words right out of the mouth of the leftists in the 60's & 70's - need to update your rhetoric. - we make better bombs though!  Apparently our bombs are a little bit too targeted - the Israelis need wider effects. Personally, I prefer wide spread carpet bombing myself.

Well it is still true today.

Seems that you have just pointed at evidance that it is just as true today.  Good find.

might be funnier in some other context.

It's still funny - Bozo takes himself too seriously & thinks he can solve centuries of Mid East wars from his bedroom & on the internet - probably needs more of this .
P.S. The US would make a lot more money just giving in to the Middle Eastern Oil barrons & the oil cartel than anything they would make on arms sales. Take a course in economics 101.
