Do you know what Zionism is? Do you support it? (what religion are you?)
Jewish Zionism is the political movement that is implementing the national liberation of the Jewish people. It is based on the assertion that the Jewish people, like any other people, has the right to self-determination; Jews have a right to a national home in their historic homeland. Notice is says nothing about the End times, Jesus, or being the chosen people of God...

Christian Zionism is a predominantly American movement that believes that the modern state of Israel is the catalyst for the end of times, the fulfillment of biblical prophecy, and the return of Jesus with final judgment. This dispensationalist view of the Bible looks forward to Jesus’ second coming, an event only possible, it is believed, when the state of Israel reclaims its ancient borders with an undivided Jerusalem as its capital. Christian Zionists tend to support any action toward this end, neglecting the cries for justice from those who would be affected. HOWEVER not all Christian Zionists are Dispensationalists... some adhere to this notion:

I feel the land should have been left alone after WWII because you can't just create a state for people without taking it away from someone else, and creating a real mess. However now that they are there, there is no going back, just like the colonists and the Native Americans. After several generations of people being born in a land, whose is it really? I think now there has to be real concessions on the part of Israel to divide the land with Palestine and Palestine is going to have to accept that Israel isn't leaving. I have no idea how Jerusalem will ever be agreed upon, so I really see no end to this situation.
Maybe Jerusalem should become it's own territory governed by both parties, I know I'm a dreamer, but even in really bad divorces parents are forced into shard custody agreements.
