religious Zionism versus secular Zionism

There is a new fad: to draw a dubious distinction between secular Zionism, which is presented like Rabin as humane, kind, lawful, and democratic and religious Zionism, which is presented as fanatic and dangerous.  In reality, the dangers to Palestinians and Arabs, and even to Jews in the Middle East, stem from Zionism in all of its forms.  Remember that the land was occupied and wars were launched (most of them) under secular Labor leaders.  Rabin is a war criminal before there was even a state of Israel.   And the article cited here fabricates a qualitative difference between racism and occupation in the occupied territories (of 1967) and the occupied territories of 1948.  1967 is a replica of 1948.  (thanks Glenn)
