  1. Steve, thank you so much for your moving personal account. You don’t have to be Jewish to be a Zionist, as you have so ably demonstrated by your words. As you say “I am a Zionist because I support the right of the Jews to self determination. The Jews are at home in their own land, and the movement that brought them there began in the 19th Century and it is called Zionism.” It really is as simple as that.

  2. One good thing about this silly and unnecessary controversy is that it has brought out gems like this for us all to see.

  3. Beautiful words in understanding and supporting the struggle of World Jewry with this dream and ongoing depth of meaning to Zionism. Are you a Messianic Christian?

    • Thank you Jodie. I believe Jesus is the Messiah.

    • Steve, you did not answer my question and I am not being judgemental. I just want to know if your being aa Zionist also means you are a Messianic Christian. I to think that is a fair question.

      • Jodie, out of curiosity, what difference does it make? Messianic Jews are Christians.Likewise,Christians who convert to Judaism eg.the Singaporean celebrity Andrew Lim are Jews.Splitting of hairs really

    • No Jodie Steve is not a Messianic Christian. Not that I need to justify the answer but I have known Steve for a number of years.

  4. I don’t really understand your question Jodie. A Christian follows Jesus. I already said I believe him to be the Messiah. Does that make me a Messianic Christian? One can be a Zionist whatever else one is in life. It is quite a simple thing.
