                                  Answer:
   
   Zionism is the modern expression of the 1,900 year old dream of
   rebuilding a Jewish state in Israel, after Rome put an end to Jewish
   independence in the Land of Israel. It expresses the conviction that
   the Jewish people have the right to freedom and political independence
   in its homeland.
   
   Political Zionism is the ongoing effort, through political means, to
   develop and secure the Jewish people's national existence in the Land
   of Israel.
   
   Zionism recognizes that Jewish peoplehood is characterized by certain
   common values relating to religion, culture, language, history and
   basic ideals and aspirations, although secular and religious Zionists
   emphasize these aspects differently.
