what do you think the phrase "the chosen" as you put it means? please tell me what how you decipher a phrase like that, then I will enlighten you on its true meaning.
"zionism" is merely a word that describes that certain people beleive that Israel has a right to exist. that is all it means, you dont have to be jewish to be a zionist either.
Zionism, the national movement for the return of the Jewish people to their homeland and the resumption of Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel, advocated, from its inception, tangible as well as spiritual aims. Jews of all persuasions, left and right, religious and secular, joined to form the Zionist movement and worked together toward these goals. Disagreements led to rifts, but ultimately, the common goal of a Jewish state in its ancient homeland was attained. The term “Zionism” was coined in 1890 by Nathan Birnbaum
