Lebanon: Understanding Zionism

“The first time I met and listened to a zionist, I cannot tell you how suspicious I was of every word he said. Many ideas crossed my mind when I heard him speak […] It took me almost a year to overcome my suspicion,” writes Worried Lebanese about understanding but not necessarily approving of Zionism.

    Zionism is inherently expansionist and thus poses a tremendous threat to nearby Arab nations. Ir has been known for many years that the most radical Zionists in the government of Israel would like to occupy southern Lebanon up to the Litani river in order to have access to that water supply.
