Zionism: I'm from Brooklyn, you wanna make something of it?

As an ex Brooklynite (though non-native) and Zionist, I am often amused and annoyed by the racist stereotype image of Zionists as right-wing religious fanatics from Brooklyn, so I have written a bit about Zionists & Brooklyn as well as examining the definition of Zionism and the question of whether or not anti-Zionism is racism, and whether or not it matters. Two articles that examined that question of what Zionism is, and what Zionism is not focused on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. However, Zionism cannot define itself based only on what critics of Zionism say - there is more to Zionism then arguing about the occupation. Read about it at Zionists & Brooklyn.
