The main content of the present Zionism — militant chauvinism, racism, anti-communism and anti-Sovietism.
As a political movement Zionism originated in the late 19th century. …Zionism Plans put forward solutions to the "Jewish problem" by creating with the great powers of the "Jewish state". This idea was set out, in particular, in the book of one of the ideologists Zionism Austrian journalist Theodor Herzl's "The Jewish State" (1896). In 1897 in Basel took the 1st Zionist Congress, which was founded by the World Zionist Organization (WZO), which proclaimed the official purpose Zionism "The establishment of the Jewish people to legally protected refuge in Palestine."
Ideological doctrine Zionism very eclectic. It uses many of the most actively dogmas of Judaism, and also includes a transformed ideologues Zionism theory of bourgeois nationalism, social-chauvinism, etc. Its main provisions are as follows: Jews from around the world are extraterritorial "single world Jewish nation", the Jews — the "special", "exceptional", "God's chosen" people, of all nations which Jews live, anyway — anti-Semites; Anti-Semitism — the phenomenon of "eternal"; assimilation, that is to unify the Jews with the surrounding nations, "unnatural and sinful," de Jews have a "historic rights" to "the Biblical land of ancestors" (Palestine and the surrounding area), where they and should concentrate and build a "purely Jewish" "egalitarian state." The ideologists Zionism trying to prove the "indissoluble connection of the Jews throughout the world" with Zionism, which, wherever they may be, must subordinate their own interests. Opolitizirovannye tenets of Judaism a "chosen people" and the messianism of the Jews, as well as the mythical thesis of their "exclusiveness" constitute one of the pillars are inherent ideology and practice Zionism extreme nationalism, chauvinism and racism. The ideologists Zionism argue that "the Jewish question" — "eternal", "special" and transcending class issue. Zionists are strongly promoting the false idea of the working class peace between the Jews and the Jewish bourgeoisie ("all Jews — the brothers"). All forms of class struggle among the Jews declared ideologues Zionism national betrayal. With the help of demagoguery and tactical maneuvers, the Zionists have always sought and are now trying to hide the reactionary nature of the anti-people Zionism, presenting it as a "national liberation movement of the Jewish people of the world." After formation in 1948 by the decision of the UN State Israel (On the part of the territory of Palestine) Zionism became the official ideology of the state of Israel. The main objectives Zionism proclaim the unconditional support of the Jewish state of the world, gathering in Israel, Jews from all over the world, working in the Zionist spirit of the Jewish people in different countries.

To solve this problem, the Zionists are using the thesis of "eternal antisemitism" and yet often resorted to his own kindling. Zionism is the basis of the official state policies of Israel. The State of Israel declared the Zionist homeland of all Jews, wherever they live and however belonged to Zionism. At the 28th Congress of the WZO (held in 1972 in Jerusalem), in violation of international law was made, "the collective commitment of all national (meaning the Zionist and pro-Zionist) organizations to help the Jewish state under any circumstances and conditions, even if it is opposed by the the relevant authorities "of countries where there is a Jewish population.

Immediately after the victory of the October Revolution of 1917 in Russia Zionism an active struggle against the young Soviet state. After the 2nd World War, 1939-45, in a further deepening of the general crisis of capitalism, anti-communism and anti-Soviet international Zionism was even more widespread. The overall change in the balance of forces in the world in favor of socialism, the successful solution of the national (including Jewish) problem in the USSR, the Soviet Union's consistent support of the national liberation struggle of the Arab peoples — all this causes an increase in the anti-Soviet and anti-Zionist propaganda and activities. International Zionism seeks to undermine the moral and political unity of the peoples of the socialist countries, to tear Jewish citizens to participate in the building of socialism and communism, is subversive activities against the relaxation of international tensions, particularly against the outbreak of the normalization of Soviet-American relations. As one of the shock troops of imperialism, colonialism and neo-colonialism, international Zionism actively involved in the struggle against the national liberation movement of the peoples of Africa, Asia, and Latin. America. In the Middle East, the Zionist rulers of Israel are pursuing a policy of aggression and a permanent territorial expansion at the expense of the Arab peoples, and especially the Arab people of Palestine. This policy has made Israel imperialist gendarme in the Middle East, was the main cause of the Arab-Israeli wars in 1948-49, 1956, 1967, 1973. Zionism became one of the main allies of imperialism in its global fight against the world liberation movement.
