The Z Word: What Zionism means

LDFI have long believed (and campaigned for) a much wider acceptance and positive use of the Z word – Zionism.

In the same way as in the 70s and 80s the Union Jack flag was hijacked by the National Front, BNP and far right, the same can be said of the use and identification of Zionism in the past 10/15 years. Zionism has been hijacked by the far right, far left and Islamic extremists to become a pejorative and offensive term.

Liberal Democrats support Israel’s right to exist and believe in a two state solution – therefore we are unashamedly a Zionist Party. As this excellent video explains – we must understand the Z word and proudly reclaim it.

With our thanks to Luke Akehurst and the team at We Believe in Israel for producing this video.
