In 1968 the Government of Poland - a marionette for the Soviet Regime, decided to crack-down heavily on any criticism of the Regime. An unproportionally large number of Jewish Intellectuals were arrested, accused of, among other things being a "Zionist fifth column", despite the fact that most of them didn't identify as being Jewish or had any ties to Israel or Judaism. The word "Zionist" was used as an euphemism for "Jews", and the remaining Poles of Jewish decent were 'asked' to leave, fully in accordance with Soviet anti-zionist politics. (Summarized from Dagens Nyheter March 22 , 2008 - original article: Peter Wolodarski)

The official position of the Soviet Union and its satellite states and agencies was that Zionism was a tool used by the Jews and Americans for "racist imperialism." The meaning of the term Zionism was misrepresented to conform to a policy of the ruling Communist Party of the Soviet Union: "the main posits of modern Zionism are militant chauvinism, racism, anti-Communism and anti-Sovietism,... overt and covert fight against freedom movements and the USSR."[6]

Howard Sachar described the allegations of global Jewish conspiracy resurrected during the Soviet "anti-Zionist" campaign in the wake of the Six-Day War:

"In late July 1967, Moscow launched an unprecedented propaganda campaign against Zionism as a "world threat." Defeat was attributed not to tiny Israel alone, but to an "all-powerful international force." ... In its flagrant vulgarity, the new propaganda assault soon achieved Nazi-era characteristics. The Soviet public was saturated with racist canards. Extracts from Trofim Kichko's notorious 1963 volume, Judaism Without Embellishment, were extensively republished in the Soviet media. Yuri Ivanov's Beware: Zionism, a book essentially replicated The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, was given nationwide coverage."[7]

A similar picture was drawn by Paul Johnson: the mass media "all over the Soviet Union portrayed the Zionists (i.e. Jews) and Israeli leaders as engaged in a world-wide conspiracy along the lines of the old Protocols of Zion. It was, Sovietskaya Latvia wrote 5 August 1967, an 'international Cosa Nostra with a common centre, common programme and common funds'".[8] The Israeli government was also referred to as a “terrorist regime” which “has raised terror to the level of state politics”. Even regarding Entebbe hostage crisis Soviet media reported: “Israel committed an act of aggression against Uganda, assaulting the Entebbe airport.”[9]

So... when the Radical Far Left use "Zionists" they use it the same way the Totalitarian and Fascist Regime(s) of the former East European Block. The Radical Far Left don't differentiate between the Jewish People and the political movement called Zionism.

Don't be fooled, when they say "Zionist", they mean "Jew".

My Friend Knate wrote the below: “What about bigotry? Is bigotry all in our minds? If symbols can’t have a collective meaning - because their meaning is consciously chosen by each individual viewer - then is bigotry only a mental aberration? Does bigotry exist only because people are “duped” into thinking we can be discriminated against? If [...]

In a modern society symbols that carry the meaning "genocide, hatred, discrimination, death, extermination, torture, racism" is automatically considered an affront to society, because those symbols cannot be used in any other or meaningful way, they cannot signal anything else.
